1948 Cadillac series 61 or 62 .One can exclude the Sixty Special that had no chrome stip over the front door.

With these two new pictures, do you think it could be rather a 1948 Series 62 Sedan due (what looks like) some chrome just after front wheel?

I leave for a moment as unknown the Cadillac waiting for your comments. If no one says anything, later I'll leave the ID as it was previously, that is, as Series 61

According to my March 1950 NADA guide, the Model 62 can be differentiated from the Model 61 by the chrome chevrons below the taillamps.
If this is correct, then we clearly have a 62 here.

This is what happens when I don't pay attention...I usually use car-nection.com to help me in identifications and clearly that page says: the chevrons below the tail-lights (right) appeared only on Series 62 cars.........The distinguishing feature of Series 62 cars were these three chevrons below the tail-lights" Thanks Commander.

Main picture changed.

My pleasure.

I love the old (pre mid 60's) NADA books.
They have a wealth of model specific indicators in their identification section.

I believe that all '48 Cadillacs series 61 and 62 had the chevrons below the taillights. The 61 and 62 series in 1948 and 1949 are different with the 62 having a chrome rocker panel molding in addition to other minor trim changes. I own a '49 series 62.

Link to picture of a 61 Series from the 1948 Cadillac brochure showing no such chrome ornaments.

I'm probably the only one in the world that would notice this, but 1948 Cads had a horseshoe shaped instrument cluster. The interior shot is of a '46 or '47 dashboard. Also it would be unusual for a Cadillac not to have a radio unless it was a commercial car (limo, hearse). Possibly they used the same interior shots as they used for the bank robbery. Would have to see the film again but I did catch that the robbery car was probably commercial. Plain door panels with a grab handle that Cad never used on production cars, transparent sun visors etc. Another weirdo was in "Thunder Road" its a '51 Ford with a 49 dashboard or vice versa.

Picking up on what paladin noticed about the dashboard, they actually used two different cars for the "stolen" Cadillac used in the bank robbery. The first, as noted, was a 1948 series 62 sedan. However, for the interior shots from the back seat, they used a specially converted super-stretch limousine with an elaborate camera dolly in the back. So that's why you see the limo dashboard (as in the picture above) when the shot is from the back seat. When the car stops on the road and Laurie gets in, they shoot it from the opposite angle and you can see the distinctive "horseshoe" instrument cluster that paladin mentions. The famous "single take" robbery, of course, is filmed exclusively from the back of the limo. By the way, the limo actually held not only the two actors, but a crew of 8 additional camera and sound technicians, one of whom road on the roof rack and extended a boom microphone to pick up the dialogue on the sidewalk!
