1959 Pink Cadillac

 

Noted for its sharp tailfins, rocket-inspired dual bullet tail lights, jewel-like grille, and rear bumper grille, nothing says ‘50s more than a pink 1959 Cadillac convertible.  The 1959 Cadillac had good looks, performance, comfort, and was a symbol of success.  This quintessential icon of 1950’s Americana was created by famed General Motors designer Harley Earl.  His design for the 1959 Cadillac Coupe de Ville and other cars helped General Motors become world's number one carmaker at the time.

 

Earl was infatuated with aircraft design motifs, in particular the twin-boom tail of the Locheed P-38 Lightning, a World War II era fighter aircraft.  From the design of this plane, Earl was inspired to adapt its features to the 1959 Cadillac.  Earl’s successor, Bill Mitchell was not fond of the design and after 1959, big fins and automotive bling were toned down significantly on all General Motors cars.

 

This photograph was taken at the Golden Cactus Ghost Town Museum located on U.S. Route 395 in Inyo County, California.
