1959 Coupe De Ville

The Cadillac division of General Motors first introduced the Coupe De Ville line in 1949 at the Autorama. In the years that followed, the classic car line would become an iconic car of the 1950s and 1960s. The 1959 model year saw power steering and brakes, which came standard, and a redesign to make the model even more distinct from its competitors. It was easy to spot a Coupe De Ville on a crowded street by the unique look of the rear end of the car. Headlights which protruded off of the back fender flares distinguished this model from others.
