The series designates the chassis size. Cars in the same series generally have the same chassis length and wheelbase. In this case it distinguishes the body maker as well (Fisher or Fleetwood).

In 1941, Cadillac offered 6 different series and a total of 26 body styles.

Yes it's a series 75. It's a 136" WB Fleetwood 5 passenger Touring Sedan, style 41-7519F. The "F" in the style number indicates that it has a divider glass behind the driver.

The base price on this car was $3,150, but the electric power curved glass divider option cost an additional $1,500

The owner of this car tells me it's one of only four known to exist.

Brian, the floor is yours.

What "Vega" body came from the factory with a Buick V6?

Yes this is sort of a trick question, because it didn't have "Vega" emblems on it, but it WAS a "Vega".

Man, I googled myself silly on this one.

Looks like you could get the Buick 3.8 in a Monza from 1978 to 1980

Model please. This is what most people picture when they hear "Monza", it isn't a Vega body....

We are looking for a Vega body.

1978 Monza Station Wagon? They say that was a 77 Vega body with a Monza front end.
