Mid Century Cadillac Discussion / Re: Cadillac Salesmen
« Last post by South_paw on Today at 10:07:53 AM »
Very cool. I had similar luck when researching the history of my car. My dealer was a small dealership with only one salesman. Deductive reasoning makes him the salesman for my car  ;D

Mid Century Cadillac Discussion / Cadillac Salesmen
« Last post by kimberlin1974 on Today at 07:44:50 AM »
 I thought I might share an interesting discovery I found out about my car. I have owned my Cadillac for 7 years now and during that time I have spent a great deal of effort in learning everything I can about its history. I was very lucky to have the original owners identification card which has been a great help in learning a lot about it. In addition to that the second page of owners manual had an interesting signature (Ed Snyder) I was curious as to who this was. I knew it wasn't the original owner so I thought maybe the salesmen? With that in mind I started searching the newspaper archives for an Ed Snyder in connection with the dealership my car came from. What I found was beyond my greatest expectations. I found an article from august of 1956 Just a few months before my car was to be sold new introducing a new Cadillac salesmen named Ed Snyder. I think it's a pretty safe bet that this was the original salesmen that sold my Cadillac 61 years ago how cool is that!  :)

You have a Coupe Deville according to the title.  I can't wait to see the pictures.  I love the 60 model year.

One easy way to tell, assuming the seat has not been replaced, is that the Series 62 does not have a front center armrest.  Also, if the car has manual windows, it is a Series 62.

You say you are in a Chicago suburb.  Would that be a northern, southern or western suburb?

If northern, I would heartly recommend Bennett Coachworks in Milwaukee, WI.

Tell 'em Dave Yaros recommended them.
