1948 Cadillac Series 62 Saoutchik 3-Position Convertible Coupe
1 of 2 Built!
Jaques Saoutchik is probably most notable for his flamboyant coach designs for the Delahaye auto company. After World War II Saoutchik built two custom ordered Cadillacs for the American Market, one specifically for film star Delores Del Rio and this one for Paul Kassoff but quickly made it into the hands of Louis Ritter. When the Series 62 chassis arrived in Paris, Saoutchik probably looked at it as an opportunity to try new ideas and expose his work to America. So, he borrowed styling cues from the Cadillac line and used them in a distinctly French way with hopes that the car would gain attention from some of America's major players.
This 1948 Cadillac Series 62 Saoutchik Cabriolet is extremely breathtaking, probably the most intensely beautiful Caddies ever made.
