With the intent of liquidating the firm's assets, Ford's financial backers, William Murphy and Lemuel Bowen called in engineer Henry M. Leland to appraise the plant and equipment prior to selling them. Instead, Leland persuaded them to continue the automobile business using Leland's proven 1-cylinder engine. Henry Ford's departure required a new name, and on August 22, 1902, the company reformed as the Cadillac Automobile Company. - The Cadillac automobile was named after the 17th century French explorer Antoine Laumet de La Mothe, sieur de Cadillac, who founded Detroit in 1701. - Cadillac was purchased by the General Motors conglomerate in 1909. Cadillac became General Motors' prestige division, devoted to the production of large luxury vehicles. In the United States, the name became a synonym for "high quality", used in such phrases as "the Cadillac of watches," referring to a Rolex. In English usage outside North America, other brands are used in such phrases - usually Rolls-Royce. - The Cadillac line was also GM's default marque for "commercial chassis" institutional vehicles, such as limousines, ambulances, hearses, and funeral home flower cars. The latter three of which were custom built by aftermarket manufacturers: Cadillac does not produce any such vehicles in factory. - The original Series 62 was designed by Harley Earl, inspired by the space program and the era of jet engines. For the ’55 models, he introduced its unique rear-deck styling and outrageous new “Shark Fin” tail fins usually called “Rocket-Ship” tail fins. - The name "DeVille" is from the French "de la ville" or "de ville" meaning "of the town". - It came standard with knobby, P-38 inspired tail fins, radio, electric windshield washers, heater, leather interior, full carpeting (also in the trunk area), power seats and power windows. - This Cadillac was built for comfort and not for speed: it’s a real cruiser and could carry six individuals comfortably. - The 1958 Series 62 was available as this 2-door Coupé DeVille, as 4-door 6239D Sedan DeVillle (23,989 units built), as 4-door 6239 Sedan (13,335 units built), as 2-door 6239E Extended Sedan (20,952 units built), as 2-door 6237 Coupé (18,736 units built), as 2-door 6237S Eldorado Seville Coupé (855 units built), as 2-door 6267S Eldorado Biarritz Convertible (815 units built) and as 2-door 6267 Convertible (7,825 units built). - This fifth generation Series 62 (1957-1958), and last Harley Earl design (the iconic ’59 huge tailfins with dual bullet tail lights were designed by Bill Mitchell), was assembled in Detroit (Michigan) and in South Gate (California).
