Cadillac’s 1941 models were introduced in September of 1940 with the new models coming off the line. Cadillac added the Series 62 to its line of cars discontinuing the LaSalle line for good. For the first time since 1926 all models used the same engine, the 346-cubic inch V-8. This became the engine for all models through 1948. The Series 62 was the only series that had a convertible model.
