The brochure says, "Ask the man who owns one."

Maybe I'll have to settle for the man who owns a brochure, since the man who owned one on my street as a child passed in 1994.

 

 

I  thought their slogan was "The Standard of the World".

 I have a 1955 S&S Superline Professional Cars brochure (Funeral Cars) that says 'World Standard'

Cadillac's adopted slogan, The Standard of the World Award, dates back to winning the 1908 Dewar Trophy, in its day the Nobel Prize of engineering for proving the precision interchangeability of its cars.

There used to be a '49-ish Packard sitting up the road from me back in the 1980s.  It had an emblem on the rear that said "Ultramatic Drive"... I always thought that was the coolest name for their automatic transmission.

Here's the history on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultramatic

 IIRC, that was the beginning of modern production techniques - to manufacture parts to a standard of close tolerance so that any part could be installed on any car of similar model.  Before that, each car was built almost as a unique unit, where parts were massaged to fit that car, but wouldn't necessarily fit the one that was being built right next to it.

Standard of the World was definitely a cool slogan, and always made me believe that Cadillac was at the top of the game in terms of engineering and building quality cars.

 Imagine me, a GM fan no less, attributing the saying to arch-rival Packard rather than to rightful Cadillac. See what happens when you grow up down the street from a guy restoring a Packard? wink

They were an incredibly well built car.

We built one quite a few years ago, made some upgrades though, 472 Caddy and TH400, 9" Ford, GM subframe....

 We built it to take to Supper Run 99, in Saskatoon. It was a hit! Nick named "The Hot Tub" It was one of those reality show type builds, unrealistic deadline, quick and dirty just for fun. Our paint guy had fun cleaning out his cabinet. Told him give it some colour, this is what he came up with. For a "temporary" paint job, it's still holding up well 20 years later......

I Got Mail !

Nice booklets, even my 27 year old Daughter commented on how nice these cars looked.

Cool little piece with a PT Boat and P51 Mustang boasting about the Packard made engines in these war time icons. 

Love this stuff, Thanks BJ!!!!

Shut The Front Door! Is that ever nice.

As iconic as the cars in Driving Miss Daisy are I could easily see this is the role.
