1950 Series 62 Sedan
Chip Lord writes......
This ivory Series 62 sedan had a green roof, and it wasn't running
when we bought it at a junk yard in Dumas, Texas, fifty miles north of Amarillo. We towed
it back to Amarillo. During the construction of Cadillac Ranch, we scavenged the hood
ornaments and front hub caps from each of the cars as souvenirs, but we told people that
breaking out the headlights was consistent with Aztec burial practices. Cadillac
produced 55,352 of these sedans, making it their most popular model of the 1950's, but it
is our least favorite of the ten cars. The model lineup did not change much in the
first design cycle of the decade - 1950 to 1953. These four years are almost
indistinguishable styling wise, and thus only one car is used to represent the cycle.
