Cadillac Series 61 Seat Belt
The Cadillac Series 61 was introduced in Cadillac's 1939 model range which replaced the Series 60 and 65. It was replaced by the Series 62 for a little while in 1940 only to return to production in the model year 1941, and it remained in production through 1951. The Series 61 had a Fisher-body and used 126 in wheelbase. You had a couple of options with this vehicle as it was available as a club coupe or sedan. Some amazing and interesting facts about this vehicle are that it was not only used in racing, but also in a film. Briggs Cunningham and his team bought 2 Series 61 DeVilles to the 1950 24 Hours of Le Mans. One of the Cars was modified for racing and was named "LeMonstre". However, the other one they brought along, was bone stock with some minor modifications and it finished 10th overall while the modified car finished 11th. A 1939 convertible Cadillac Series 61 was also used in the Batman film series of 1943 to act as the Batmobile.
If you own this vehicle, it is like owning a piece of history. Not only was this car turned into a racing vehicle, but it was also used in an iconic film like Batman. Unfortunately, when this car was being built the only thing it did not include was seat belts. Seat belts started coming out in the early 1930s and only in 1968 did 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.
