The 1948 and 1949 Cadillacs defined high-tech for their day.

Aircraft design inspired some of those innovations, but as we see from several renderings for the postwar Cadillac, planes could have had a much more prominent role in Cadillac design.

It's amazing how much these concept drawings and the 1948 Tucker look alike, quite apparently for the same reason: the Tucker was designed from a clean sheet of paper using WW II aircraft and other technology.
