Cadillac Series 75 - 1946-1948
When the corleones made their rounds in francis ford coppolas movie the godfather, only a cadillac would do, and it had to be the longest, largest and heaviest one the series 75. The 1946-48 series 75 cadillacs are among the few post-world war ii cars recognized as classics by the classic car club of america.

with its pontoon fenders and eggcrate grille, this 226-in.-long postwar cadillac series actually dated from a 1941 design. The other cadillacs were restyled for 1948, but the series 75 look was so admired it remained for two more years. The only appreciable change was a reduction in the number of horizontal grille bars from six to five for 1947. The 5.7-litre v8 engine, common to all cadillacs, had been improved during the war for use in army tanks.
there were five series 75 cadillacs: A five-place sedan and one with two additional jump seats, a nine-place business sedan, and a seven and nine-place imperial business sedan, both with jump seats. Division windows were available for limousine use, and derham and maurice
schwartz made special bodies. Cadillac also made a series 75 l63-in.-wheelbase chassis to be bodied as hearses and ambulances by outside coachbuilders.
A grand 226 in. Long, this 1947 series 75 cadillac enjoys classic-car status.
