1941 Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty Special Imperial Sedan Very rare Sixty Special Imperial! One of just 220 ever produced in 1941! This one shows only 80,000 miles on the odometer and a beautiful, completely new interior throughout!
Major design changes in 1941 included sweeping front fenders now extending back into the front doors with headlights built into the front along with a new, rectangular grill, repositioned parking & turn signal lamps, and revised front bumper assembly giving the new Sixty Specials a look often imitated by other manufacturers going forward, including GM’s own Chevrolet division. The wheel base was reduced by one inch, and Sixty Special prices increased slightly due to these fresh design and style changes. Even today, many Cadillac enthusiasts consider the Sixty Special the most attractive Cadillac ever designed by Bill Mitchell.
Everything from the headliner to the carpet were all recovered! New tan broadcloth cloth and light brown Bedford cord were provided by Hirsch, and the oatmeal square weave in the trunk. The headliner was outsourced and reproduced by SMS Auto Fabrics.

It has been serviced with care and continues to start easy, idle super quiet, and drive without any major concerns.
