The Series 62 was higher priced, had a distinctive Cadillac grille, and the front fender stone shields and rocker panel moldings were grooved. Detail refinements included the replacement of the prior ‘rainbow’ cluster-style dash design with a more conventional layout featuring a horizontal speedometer. The biggest change was the introduction of a new overhead valve V8 engine which offered an impressive 160 horsepower.
