Cadillac DeVille Coupe

год выпуска 1959



    «Ни один другой автомобиль не символизирует лучше экстравагантность индустриального стиля конца 1950-х, чем Кадиллак 1959 года…" - гласит каталог компании Кадиллак.

    Известнейший автомобильный дизайнер Харли Эрл, будучи главой Центра стиля и цвета Дженерал Моторс, внедрил множество элементов дизайна, ставших характерными признаками классического американского автомобиля. Он впервые создал легендарный «аэростиль» или «летящий стиль», как его называли многие. Критики писали: «Автомобили Харли Эрла летят, даже когда они стоят!» В 1948 году он побывал на военном аэродроме и, вдохновленный внешним видом истребителей, впервые представил на Кадиллаках хвостовые плавники. Никакой функции, кроме дизайнерской, эти плавники не несли, с ними автомобиль наоборот приобретал излишнюю парусность. Но американцам они пришлись по вкусу и прочно вошли в моду не только у моделей Кадиллак, но и у других автомобилей.
    В 1959 году этот стиль достиг своего апогея, начиная с 60-ых годов плавники стали ежегодно уменьшаться в размерах, а затем и вовсе исчезли.
    Помимо выдающегося дизайна Кадиллак в 1959 году получил и новый двигатель V8 объемом 390 куб. дюймов (6.4 литра) и мощностью 325 лошадиных сил. Однако даже этот двигатель, один из лучших, созданных инженерами компании, меркнет по сравнению с фантастическим дизайном автомобиля. С кажущейся невесомой крышей без средней стойки, огромными хвостовыми плавниками, задними огнями, похожими на пламя реактивного двигателя, притягательно блестящим хромом, гламурным салоном и приборной панелью, выглядящей как музыкальный автомат, Кадиллак 1959 года стал настоящей иконой американского автомобилестроения. Именно американские автомобили 1959 года и в первую очередь автомобили марки Кадиллак стали одними из самых желанных для коллекционеров во всём мире.

    Представляемый компанией «Ретролегенда» Cadillac DeVille Coupe 1959 года выпуска является реальным воплощением того самого аэрокосмического стиля, внедрённого в автомобильную моду Харли Эрлом. Сошедший с завода в оригинальном цвете Wood Rose metallic, этот роскошный Кадиллак в своё время был мечтой любого американца, а сейчас является мечтой любого поклонника классических автомобилей и желанным экземпляром в любой коллекции олдтаймеров.

1959 Cadillac Coupe de Ville 

Long, low, and sleek…with an elegance all their own – the formidable “Standard of the World” ruled the road. Cadillac had them all running scared by introducing technology and advanced automotive design. As a luxury car, it was complete; its poised dignity was not an afterthought. Power, performance, and presence were the true hallmarks of the brand. Whatever one sought in a luxury car…Cadillac could provide.

A brilliant example of such is the iconic 1959 Cadillac. Its outrageous styling created a cult following. The Series Sixty-Two coupe provided an eloquent introduction to Cadillac ownership. The 1959 Cadillacs advanced the tradition of excellence to an extraordinary degree. Here they are- the “fins” Cars like this presented the “feel-good factor” that was a high priority. Driving a Cadillac was a good feeling that no other motorcar could match. The 1959 Cadillacs were the “Standard of the World” in elegance.

The 1959 Cadillacs wore the tallest tail fins in the industry. They make this model year the most memorable and identifiable Cadillac in history. This was a Harley Earl design; he was the master of the motorcar. All of his designs were breathtaking. It is the two-door models that best showcase the fins. This made the car appear even longer, lower, and wider. The silhouette is unmistakably Cadillac. The 1959 Cadillacs were the most flamboyant in the history of the brand.

The Cadillac body-beautiful surrounded its passengers with a ring of steel. The passenger cell was designed as a cage with double box-girder rocker panels. The all-steel turret roof has double-ribbed steel bows and box-girder rails. Box-girder reinforced cowl and dash, with integral rear quarter panels and rear fenders complete its sturdy framework protecting the occupants. Polished Safety Plate glass was in every window.

The Series Sixty-Two was the easiest step to driving “Standard of the World” luxury. Available body styles for this series include a four-door six-window hardtop sedan, the popular four-door four-window “Flattop” (vista roof), luxury convertible and coupe. The Series Sixty-Two was a step below the DeVille series. The DeVille started out as an exclusive trim option for the Series Sixty-Two as Cadillac’s first pillarless hardtop coupe in 1949. It is one of Cadillac’s best-selling models built from 1953 until the 1964 model year. It was replaced by the Calais series in 1965.

The flamboyant styling of the 1959 Series Sixty-Two coupe made it highly desirable. It is a Cadillac in every respect. They featured richly appointed interiors. Beautifully tailored Carlisle and Mojave cloth with Elascofab side bolsters as a pleasing contrast were the choices for its interior. They were available in a broad selection of standard and optional color schemes. This was a time when Cadillac was THE FINEST LUXURY CAR IN THE ENTIRE WORLD! It was the formidable “Standard of the World” in automotive excellence and the envy of the world.

The new Cadillac chassis for the 1959 model year featured improved braking, steering, driving ease, and riding comfort.  They were built on Cadillac’s rugged tubular “X” frame. It was not only more rigid than previous chassis versions, it permitted lower body mounts for improved overall appearance and greatly improved stability. Body on frame construction was the trend for the day. The 1959 Series Sixty-Two coupe was an extremely large front-engine rear-wheel drive luxury coupe. It has the luxury length of 225”, rides upon a long 130” wheelbase, and is 80” in width.

The suspension was the core of the legendary “Magic Carpet Ride.” The front suspension used the traditional upper and lower control arms with spherical joints, helical coil springs, hydraulic direct-acting shock absorbers, and torsion rod stabilizer. The rear suspension used Cadillac’s four-link drive, helical coil springs, rubber bushings to absorb road impact and isolate road noise, and hydraulic direct-acting inverted “V” mounted shock absorbers. This was the secret to the famous Cadillac ride.

The Series Sixty-Two is powered by the same exclusive new V8 as all Cadillacs. Each engine built was run before being installed into the car’s engine bay. The newly designed 390 CID 16-valve V8 is constructed from cast iron (the block and cylinder heads,) with hydraulic valve lifters.

The crankshaft runs in five main bearings. It came standard with a Carter 4-bbl downdraft carburetor with equalized manifold. An optional Rochester “Triple Deuce” (three 2-bbls) kicked it from 325 hp to 345 hp output. It was equipped with a mechanical fuel pump, dry-pack air cleaner, intake silencer, and automatic choke. Cadillac hand-built these magnificent powerplants to superlative standards.

This all-new engine, with its larger displacement had a new intake manifold with larger passages, new fuel filters, automatic choke control, lighter pistons and connecting rods, tapered exhaust valves, new crankshaft, new automatic temperature compensator for improved idle and a higher capacity fuel pump.

An engine with adequate power is necessary to move a big car through its paces with effortless operation and flexibility to handle road situations without hesitation and perform for hours on end with no audible sign of its presence. The 390 CID V8 produces 325 hp @ 4,800 rpm with 583 Nm of peak torque @ 3,100 rpm. The engine is mated to GM’s Hydra-Matic (Jetaway/Flashaway) 4-speed automatic transmission.

Longitudinal acceleration is rated as 0-60 mph (100km/h) in 10.6 seconds, 0-100 mph in 29.4 seconds. It has a top speed of 122 mph ungoverned. That is great for an automobile of this magnitude. This type of power is torque-thrust and not the fake power to weight ratio. These cars are not aerodynamically designed like today’s wedges. Standard on every Cadillac was power steering, power brakes, and Hydra-Matic Drive.

Without a slashing array of rhetoric, Cadillac for 1959 presented a new realm of motoring majesty. The Series Sixty-Two coupe is a sparkling example of Cadillac style. From its bold front jewel-like ensemble to the tallest tail fins in the industry, the Series Sixty-Two coupe provided an eloquent introduction to Cadillac ownership. It was the most modestly priced Cadillac that reflected the same extraordinary craftsmanship as the most expensive model.

Cadillac was foremost in all the world. It was the most desired automobile in the entire world. The 1959 Cadillac Series Sixty-Two Coupe makes a cameo appearance…in the continuing saga of “As the Standard of the World Turns.”
