Cadillac Model B Seat Belt
The Cadillac Model B was similar to their Model A, sharing its engine but using a pressed-steel frame and axles but was on a longer 76 in wheelbase. The Model B was available in two different styles as a runabout or a touring car with a detachable rear-entrance tonneau and optional surrey top, or with a delivery body. The sloping dash was replaced in the Model B by a detachable box-like front to the body and a vertical radiator. Furthermore, all body styles lost as much as 70 pounds weight, so prices went up $50. The passenger cars were both priced at $900 and weighed about 1,450 lb. The Cadillac Model B continued producing automobiles in through 1905 when an alternative tubular front axle was available and the power was advertised as 9 hp.
The Model B was definitely a step up from the Cadillac Model A, and certainly showed its features that were changed. One thing that didn’t change was the safety features. Seat belts started coming out in the early 1930’s and in 1968 the federal government mandated that all new cars include seat belts at all seating positions. Seat belts are there to protect you from a car accident, and are there to protect you from jolting around the vehicle.
