About the 1951 Cadillac Fleetwood 75
The Cadillac Series 70 (models 70 and 75) is a full-size V8-powered series of cars that were produced by Cadillac from the 1930s through the 1980s. It replaced the 1935 355E as the company’s mainstream car, just as the much less expensive Series, 60 was introduced. The Series 72 and 67 were similar to the Series 75 but the 72 and 67 were produced on a slightly shorter and longer wheelbase, respectively. The Series 72 was only produced in 1940, and the Series 67 was only produced in 1941 and 1942.
The short wheelbase Series 70 would cease production in 1938, but reappear briefly as the relatively expensive and exclusive Series 70 Eldorado Brougham 4-door hardtop from 1957 to 1958, while the long wheelbase Series 75 would make a final appearance in the 1987 model year.
A minor face lift and small trim variations were the main Cadillac styling news in 1951. Miniature eggerate grilles were set into the out-board grille extension panels below the headlights. Larger, bullet shaped style bumper guards were used. Jump seats were used in both the seven-passenger sedan and Imperial limousine. Hydramatic automatic transmission was optional, and hydraulic window lifts were standard. Business sedans were built in limited numbers on a special order basis.
