There were major design changes for 1948 Cadillacs. They featured General Motors first all-new postwar body with styling advances including tailfins inspired by the Lockheed P-38 fighter plane. There was also an attractive eggcrate grille. The front of the car was protected by a heavier and more massive bumper bar that curved around the fenders. Chrome headlamp rims were used.
Series 60, 61 and 62 had similar styling,

Nice car, but I miss the hidden headlights. A tiny brush with some black paint will fix it.

Man, I'm a big Iowa State University Cyclones fan . . . really, there was a car named 'Cyclone'? Wow. Glad to find that out. ;-)

Yeah; the Mercury Cyclone was an automobile that was produced by Mercury from 1964 to 1971. It started as a performance model of the 1964 Mercury Comet, and was named the Mercury Comet Cyclone through 1967. For 1968, the "Comet" part of the name was dropped.

Posted the question on my Cyclones athletics boards, too. Turns out Lee Iacocca named the car after my Cyclones won a particularly gritty football game.

The things one can learn at TT_Nut . . . wow!
