What the 1948 Cadillac could have looked like


Recommended Posts

The 1948 and 1949 Cadillacs defined high-tech for their day. In those two years, the crest and wreath introduced styling and engineering innovations that would go on to influence the American auto industry for decades. 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.
