Cadillac optimally blended comfort, performance, and brilliant visual design within their 1961 model line. These driving perks manifested themselves within twelve 1961 Cadillac models that fell under three standard series; the 60, 62, and the 75 Series.
Access a 1961 Cadillac, and you’ll find tried and true Cadillac exterior design that’s bolstered by special quality. Engineering advances supplied 1961 Cadillacs with more headroom, legroom, and seating comfort. 1961 Cadillacs featured 113 different upholstery combinations—a number far higher than its predecessor’s 89 upholstery configurations. Synthetic fabrics, beautiful leathers, and broadcloth fabric could all be found around a 1961 Cadillac emblem.
You’ll find that 1961 Cadillacs sport a suave headlamp aesthetic that complemented its hallmark grille design. Cadillac lowered its 1961 models’ tail fins a bit while sculpting the rest of the exterior with a crisp feel. Mechanical engineering improvements within 1961 Cadillacs consisted of better handling, quieter operation, and more succinct braking.

1961 Cadillac Fleetwood 60 Special
The 1961 Cadillac Fleetwood 60 Special contained a through and through redesign with additions like a semi-blind-quarter four-door hardtop configuration, a front fender model nameplate, an angular roofline, and six chevron slashes on the rear fender sides’ trailing edge. The angular roofline decision was seen as a more traditional design move that went well with the model’s shortened wheelbase.
A large V8 engine and an automatic transmission helped power the 1961 Fleetwood 60 Special, while power steering, power windows, and power seats stood as standard offerings. This Cadillac is the eighth Generation of the 60 Special name and was assembled on a full-size rear-wheel-drive C platform.
1961 Cadillac Series 62
You could find the 1961 Cadillac Series 62 in a six-window sedan, four-window sedan, hardtop coupe, and sporty convertible. Redesigned elements within the 1961 Cadillac Series 62 included a new grille slanted backward toward the car’s bumper and hood lip.
Standard equipment in the 1961 Cadillac Series 62 included but wasn’t limited to:
- Power brakes
- Wheel discs
- Plain fender skirts
- Vanity mirror
- Windshield washer with dual speed wipers
Sitting just above the Series 62 were sub-series models, including the 1961 Cadillac Coupe DeVille, four-window sedan, town sedan, and six-window sedan. The 1961 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz convertible model added more amenities like a remote control trunk-lock and whitewall tires.
The 1961 Series 62 represented 40% of Cadillac’s overall production.
1961 Cadillac Series 75
Cadillac built a total of 3,829 Series 75 examples in 1961. The massive 1961 Cadillac Series 75 contained a standard 149.8-inch wheelbase and offered an available chassis with a 156-inch wheelbase. This is the most luxurious 1961 Cadillac interior by a longshot. Six-window styling and up to nine-passenger seating underscore this 1961 Cadillac’s length, while a high-headroom roofline provides ample cabin room. Harness 1961 Cadillac Magic
