ENGINE: Eight-cylinder, 375-HP overhead 90 degrees V-type: bore 4.30, stroke 4.06, displacement 472 cu. in. Max. torque 525 ft.-lbs. Engine mounted in rubber at three points. Compression ratio 10 to 1.
NEW: ELDORADO: V-8 ENGINE: Displacement, 8.2 litres. 400-HP. Torque, 550 ft.-lbs. Compression ratio, 10 to 1. Bore, 4.30. Stroke, 4.304
PISTONS: Aluminium alloy, slipper-type cam, ground to reduce friction surfaces and permit nesting between crankshaft counterweights.
CARBURETOR: Quadrajet four-barrel downdraft with equalized manifold, mechanical fuel pump, dry-type air filter, improved automatic choke. Controlled combustion system reduces hydrocarbons in exhaust.
LUBRICATION: Full-pressure. Full-flow oil filter.
ELECTRICAL SYSTEM: 12-volt. 15-plate battery. High-capacity, 42-amp. generator (55-amp., air conditioned cars).
GASOLINE TANK CAPACITY: Approximately 26 gallons. Eldorado approximately 24.
TURBO HYDRA-MATIC: Fully automatic, torque-converter type with fixed stator. Converter multiplies engine torque for increased driving thrust to drive wheels during acceleration in any gear (low, intermediate or high).
REAR AXLE: New, heavier, stronger rear axle and differential. Ratio is 2.93 to 1 (3.07 to 1 on Eldorado), 3.15 to 1 axle ratio on Seventy-Five models. Available (except Eldorado) is the Controlled Differential, which directs power to the rear wheel having better traction.
FRONT SUSPENSION: New integral steering knuckle for greater dependability and longer life. Independent, helical-coil-type springs. Rubber-mounted strut rods and rubber bushings absorb impacts and isolate road noise. (Torsion bar suspension on Eldorado.)
REAR SUSPENSION: Four-link drive. Rear springs are helical-coil-type. Rubber bushings for quieter, softer ride. (Single-leaf springs with two horizontal and two vertical shock absorbers on Eldorado.)
BRAKES: Cadillac power brakes with self-adjusting feature; composite finned rear drums; disc front. Split hydraulic master cylinder provides for independent operation of front and rear brakes.
PARKING BRAKE: True auxiliary brake ... will not lock in position with engine running and car in gear ... can be operated as a foot emergency brake while car is in motion. Automatically releases when transmission is in drive with engine running.
STEERING: Cadillac variable-ratio power steering is standard equipment (fixed-ratio on Seventy-Five models). Overall steering ratio of 16.6 to 1 (except 18.2 to 1 on Seventy-Five models and 16.3 to 1 on Eldorado). 38.5' turning angle provides fast response and short turning diameter.
FRAME: Perimeter frame is boxed in its entire length. Eldorado has a frame especially designed for its front-wheel drive and front and rear suspension systems.
TIRES: Low-pressure, size L78 x 15, bias-belted, fiberglass, tubeless, on all models. Black sidewalls, standard; white sidewalls optional, at extra cost.
CORNERING LIGHTS: On the side of front fenders, activated by directional signal lever when headlamp switch is on. They project a beam of light from the side of the car, thus illuminating roadside and road signs for convenience at night.
TREAD: Front and rear, 63" (Eldorado, 63.5" front 63" rear).
WHEELBASE: 129.5" (Fleetwood Sixty Special and Brougham, 133", Fleetwood Seventy-Five 149.8", Eldorado 120").
OVERALL LENGTH: 225" (Fleetwood Sixty Special and Brougham 228.5", Fleetwood Seventy-Five, 245.3", Eldorado, 221").
