Cohort Outtake: 1964 Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty Special – Even The Standard Of The World Needs A Lift Sometimes

Cadillac 1964 60 special truck

I make it a point to check the Cohort daily after (if) I finish everything else for the next day. And in today’s batch of new photos is this terrific shot of a ’64 Fleetwood Sixty Special, by C. Hannaher, and visible over the middle divider only because of its infirmity. 

All I can add to this is to say that as a highly impressionable ten year old when this was new, seeing a Sixty Special in Iowa was a big deal. Its distinctive roof and lack of chrome on its flanks made it instantly recognizable at great distance, and made sure it was not confused with the lesser Cadillacs. This was as good as it got in 1964.
