1948 Cadillac

In 1941 Harley Earl arranged for Cadillac designers to visit the Selfridge Field military airbase to get inspiration from the twin-tail boom P-32 fighter plane. After WWII ended, some of these ideas took shape in the rear fenders of the 1948 Cadillacs.

The aerospace technology influences were reflected in the new 1948 designs of front fenders being swallowed into the body. A flatter and lower hood, together with the dip and rise of the small rear fins, made for a more horizontal, longer, and lower look.
