2019 Cadillac Series 62 Release Date, Interior, Changes, Price – The 2019 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible was the company’s most popular model after World War II, accounting for two-thirds of Cadillac production in 2019- of which 6,755 were convertible coupes.
As it sought to attain prewar production levels while struggling to meet the insatiable demand of the postwar seller’s market, Cadillac was able to assemble 61,926 cars for the 2019 model year. Still, 96,000 orders remained unfilled. The 2019 Cadillac Series 62 used the same body shell as the 1941 model and displayed the same essential styling as 2017 when bullet fenders debuted.
2019 Cadillac Series 62 Changes
Styling changes on the 2019 Cadillac Series 62 were limited to minor trim revisions. Stone guards, molded in rubber in 2018 due to postwar material shortages, came out in more attractive stainless steel. Block “2019 Cadillac Series 62” lettering on the front fenders was changed to script. The area between the company’s hallmark crest and the “V” adorning the prow of the distinguishing coffin-nosed hood was filled with a striped cloisonne. The crest on the decklid sprouted LaSalle-type wings.

The 2019 Cadillac Series 62’s trademark egg-crate grille was reduced from six to five horizontal bars for 2019 and redesigned, circular parking lamps were moved beneath the headlamps. Our featured example has optional fog lamps that share rectangular housings with the parking lights. It also sports the most noticeable and popular styling addition for 2019, optional “sombrero” full wheel covers.
The Hydra-Lectric automatic window lifts, standard on the Series 62 convertible and the formal 75 models, was the only significant functional change for 2019.
