When these two, the Caddie and the Lincoln came out I was just between college years and the Army
in between my college years and the Army and I used to hang out with a designer/instructor from Fisher Body at their GM Tech Center in Hinsdale IL. And his quote was pretty memorable then. About these two rivals. The Cadillac was evolutionary while that Lincoln was revolutionary. And I'll always remember that. Back then I drove an Austin Healey. What did I know?

Cadillac because it's a Fleetwood. (EOM) by Barry Levittan #40674.6
I've always considered the '63 Lincoln to be the best looking luxury automobile of that era. (EOM) by dennis Brown #40674.7
I think they got it just right in 1961 for its maiden year, but they are all beautiful. (EOM) by Ed Glorius #40674.7.1
+1 Agree the '61 is the best. (EOM) by Jack Dodds #40674.7.1.1

They're both evolutions of styles that started in '61. The Caddy evolved more significantly. (EOM) by Michael Rodriguez #40674.11
