When it comes to its handsome exterior, the Sixty Special showcases unique features and high-quality OEM parts, including the coupe-like trunk. Initially, Cadillac Sixty Special models focused more on curves and silhouette shades. And they are combined with precision, innovation, and incredible attention to detail. However, by the seventh generation, the model boasted a completely different look and more quality parts. It has become flatter, longer, and sleeker with a touch of great design and styling. Moreover, the lack of running boards, fender-mounted headlamps, and faired-in trunk design has set an example not only for the rest of General Motors but the auto industry.
All of its parts and components have undergone several generational upgrades for better performance. The Sixty Special is blessed with refined OEM parts, improved design, exquisite interior accessories, and a great exterior look. Therefore, the Sixty Special is still popular among enthusiasts and collectors. So if you are a fan of retro cars, the Cadillac Sixty Special is a perfect choice for you.
