Patriotic Ads: Cadillac Goes to War


Recommended Posts

Like Packard (and every other domestic automaker), Cadillac stopped producing civilian cars and switched over to the production of military goods shortly after the bombing of Pearl Harbor in late 1941. Instead of fading from the public eye, though, Cadillac maintained its public profile through a series of magazine articles -- focused on the war effort, to be sure, but always with a mind toward the eventual resumption of automotive manufacturing.

Neat ads...

I didn't know Cadillac built the INTERNALS for the Allison engine.

My Dad was a tank driver in WW 2.

He was with Patton all across Europe and all the way to Germany.

Here is a General Motors Allison V-1710 V-12 Aircraft engine that contained up to 175 parts manufactured by Cadillac in Detroit. Author's photo at the Museum of the United States Air Force.
