The Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty Special Brougham
The Cadillac Sixty Special is a name used by Cadillac to denote a special model since the 1938 Harley Earl / Bill Mitchell designed extended wheelbase derivative of the Series 60, often referred to as the Fleetwood Sixty Special. The Sixty Special designation was reserved for some of Cadillac’s most luxurious vehicles.
It was offered as a four-door sedan and briefly as a four-door hardtop. This exclusivity was reflected in the introduction of the exclusive Fleetwood Sixty Special Brougham d’Elegance in 1973 and the Fleetwood Sixty Special Brougham Talisman in 1974, and it was offered as one trim package below the Series 70 limousine. The Sixty Special name was temporarily retired in 1976 but returned again in 1987 and continued through 1993.
The refined lines of the Cadillac Sixty Special Brougham combined with its interior luxury, made it the ‘go-to’ luxury sedan of the 60s and 70s.

The Cadillac Series 70 (Models 70 and 75) is a full-size V8-powered series of cars that were produced by Cadillac from the 1930s to the 1980s.
From 1966-1970, the usual Fleetwood’s exterior trim and interior appointments enriched the Series 75. The first major redesign since 1961 featured a full perimeter frame. The new look brought the appearance of the big sedan and limousine up-to-date so that it matched the visual impression of other Cadillac lines.
Although its overall size and character was largely unchanged, the 1969 Cadillac was restyled with relatively minor restyling again for 1970.
From 1971-1976, as with all General Motors full-size lines, the Series 75 was redesigned for 1971. The new General Motors full-size bodies set a record for interior width that would not be matched by any car until the full-size General Motors rear-wheel-drive models of the early to mid-1990s.

The word ‘livery’ itself derives from the French livrée.
The term ‘livery’ comes from the time when coaches were available only through the services of a livery stable, and the coachmen were uniformed, according to which company they represented. Today in North America, a ‘livery vehicle’ remains a legal term of art for a vehicle for hire, such as a taxicab or chauffeured limousine, or luxury sedan.
