|1960 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible|
The 1960 Cadillac began the evolutionary process of toning down the excesses of 1959. Although it continued the jet plane styling theme of the '59, its fins were clipped (but still prominent). Bill Mitchell took over after Harley Earl's retirement and was mainly responsible for the 1960 models. Under Mitchell, a new freshness permeated the air -- a freshness and youthfulness that was to become the hallmark of most cars developed under his regime, Ed Taylor who worked under Mitchell redesigned the taillights into a thin strip of red plastic neatly blended into the end of the fin. Supplementing that was a second taillight in each "exhaust port," now a vertical oval that still housed the backup light as well. The simplified grille lost its horizontal divider bar and the front bumper was also simpler and less bulky. New, too, was the instrument panel. All in all, the '60 Caddy had a more formal, yet youthful, look.
In 1960, Cadillac entered the new decade with restrained styling and lower, much more subdued dagger tipped tail fins. This 60 Caddy feature this clean, uncluttered new styling and fine detailing. Lower, much more restrained tail fins resulted in a smooth, sweeping horizontal body line from the front to fenders, terminating at the base of the windshield. The 1960 Cadillac's are considered by many to be the finest lines of all of the Cadillac's.
