The Caddy is a '59. It has the highest fins ever featured on a Cadillac.

Here are a couple more:

The Caddy is a 1959 4dr pillarless veranda roof model, probably has a 390ci and 4spd auto, auto dipping headlights and power brakes...

Not the series 62 with acres of chrome down the side though...

I also spy an SS Chevelle and SS camaro next to the Hemi Charger...

I'm sure I'm familiar with the Cadillac's model, while I'm not well-versed enough
to identify it on sight. But that's likely to be one of the largest and heaviest passenger automobiles ever unleashed for the public's consumption anywhere the world over.

It's a '59 DeVille.

It has the highest fins ever put on an American production automobile.

There were only 1,320 of them made...

Looks nice. But quite a shock to lift the lid and see rusty panels

I talked to the owner, who has collected a half-dozen various British made vehicles he's 'rescued'. A few were from central US, where they salt the roads during ice and snow conditions. The Herald was a recent acquisition from Missouri ... future restoration work is planned.:-)

I had a 1972 fiat 124 bought new in New York City suburbs that succumbed to rust in a few years, as did a lot of my friends' imports made in the early 70's before rust treatments were common in imported cars. Mostly from salted roads in the winter. That was how Zeibart got started!!

Not just imports. My brother had a '73 Chevrolet Vega Kammback wagon he drove in Indiana for four years & it developed rust pitting and holes along the lower body parts and doors. He then followed me to south Texas and settled along the Gulf Coast. There, vehicles tend to corrode from the top down. In less than three years, whole sections of that poor car were rotting away, or fell off!:lol:

British vehicles were often noted for rust in the US, while other exporters also
didn't seem to understand that the US frequently salts roads in winter.
Seeing as Britain and the UK mostly gets rain without snow and sub-zero
temperatures, this is logical. In parts of the US, it's not uncommon
for the winter season to deliver weeks of sub-freezing temperatures
and buildup of ice during periods of temperature fluctuations
and heavy snowfalls. Outside of these seasonal changes, the US
largely enjoys climates much like the rest of the world experiences.

I've been in conditions living near Chicago where there were over 13 days
of temperatures that never went above 9 degrees below 0 Fahrenheit,
with wind-chill figures reaching the below-70 degree mark at times.
And similar conditions occur here in Michigan, which is where I live.

Many of the world's major cities and manufacturing centers don't need to deal
with the extremes of winter to the same extent as some parts of the US.
When they do understand the concepts, it's typically in Nordic and other
regions which have found other ways to deal with it, without throwing
corrosive salt and chemicals all over their roads.

I suspect it's largely the reactionary response of the US culture as
convenience over all else, but yeah, those of us in the more extreme
climatic environments see our cars rusting away before much of the country
and the world at large.

I'd much rather drive on a road plowed smooth of snow, rather than
driving on roads which are wet from salt-melted snow.
