Cadillac Motor Co. rose from the ashes of Henry Ford's first auto company, The Henry Ford Co..

It was named for Antoine Laumet de La Mothe, sieur de Cadillac, who founded the city of Detroit in 1701

I've read somewhere, that he was self-proclaimed "sieur", and his crest was just compilation of his actually crest, and various others...

The quarter panel on the Continental is longer that that 'Merc'.

Well darn near it anyway.

That's a big Benz. It is longer in length and wheelbase than the '58 Continental. The one pictured also happens to be a "Pope-mobile." The Pope also had a 1965 Lincoln Limo, which was slightly larger than the M-B 600 Pullman, and also a unibody.



This is the version that was available to the public through Lincoln dealers.


Here are the dimensions:

So who's got the next question?

Not me...

For sake of argument, the "merc" or that 'limo thing' wasn't a production car was it??

Yeah, who's got the next question....?

The mercedes 600 was a production car,although they only built 2500 of them in all forms. The Popes car ( one of several the vatican have) looks short because of it's bigger windows.Not the sort of thing dignitaries are encouraged to ride in these days...
OK,I'll volenteer a question.

We all have a garage, a place at home to park the car,park the mother in law ,keep extra Stuff,have sales from ,hide from the spouse etc etc . But who actually invented the home garage?

Whoa mister..

The 600 was introduced in '63 ???

That's three years LATER than the Lincoln Continental.

Am I seeing things?
