Wednesday Evening, November 13, 1957. Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune .-Nin« New Cadillac Goes on Display Here Today The 1958 Cadillac has a new look *f luxury, both inside and out. Accounting for this 1958 look are a new "going away" tail fin, the four headlamp system, sweeping low lines, a dramatically different over-all profile and the finest interiors ever offered by Cadillac.' The new models go on display today at Myers-McCain Oldsmobile-Cadillac, Inc. in Logansport, according to James M. Roche, Cadillac general manager and vice president of General Motors. Included in the 12 models is a new extended deck sedan in the popular 62 Series. The big engineering news for Cadillac in 1858 involves suspension advances. These advances result in better and softer ride and improved control and handling. The basic factor in the improved suspension is the use of four-link rear suspension on all models. By using this new linkage, the Cadil- Biarritz convertible and Eldorado Seville Coupe retain their own distinctive styling, inside and out The Biarritz features ei.jfht Cape Buffalo grain and metallic finish leathers. The Seville interiors are available in both Oape Buffalo grain leather and in combinations of leather and crest cloth which Is made from nylon faced material with lurex metallic thread. Several distinctive refinements are made to the Fleetwood BO Special Sedan for 1958. Among the exterior features which distinguish this model is an extruded aluminum shield across the lower rear quarter panel. The grooved effect of this molding is carried around to the rear deck also where it runs between the two back-up lights inset in the deck. ' Other distinguishing 60 Special features are a wide stainless steel rocker sill molding which covers 1958 CADILLAC MAKES DEBUT leader Tuesday night criticized the The American fanner has been ,. . , 1 1 --betrayed" by Presidents Hard- administration's farm policies, but|. ng ^^^ * nd Eisenhower b e- predicted improvement after I960]cause "the short lived campaign USlIiX LJILS I1CW iiurvdj^c, me WM**" rULMJr SJil Jiiii/iui-iig TT.iii^-ii ^-u TI-»U lac is adaptable to either coil j the lower edge of the doors and spring suspension, which is stand "--' - 1 J KI»J«, u^ „*„ ard, or optional air suspension. Styling-wise, Cadillac presents a long, sleek appearance. Responsible for this broad-shouldered, longer look are the unique new grille which is inset with jewel-like protrusions, a longer hood, wider and longer fenders, the addition of rear ventipane 'windows in four- door models and.ths new "going away" tail fin. The extended deck sedan is a companion oar to the 62 sedan, •with, more trunk room and an additional 8.5 inches in over-all length.

The 60 Special, too, attains new heights of interior luxuriousness. There are 13' interior combinations with this model including three wool broadcloth options in a strikingly handsome biscuit and button combination. A visual walk around the 1958 Cadillac shows these important changes: — A hood which is 5.3. inches longer than in 1957. — Front fenders are both wider NOTICE TO BIDDERS Kotice Is hereby given that the Board of Commissioners ol Cass County, Indiana, will up until the hour ot 10:00 A.M., C.

High-lighting this styling are .the dramatic tail fins which give a feeling of grace and faction to the car's appearance. Another new feature for the 1958 Cadillac is the rear, ventipane (ICV) windows. These ventipanes improve rear passenger visibility and add length to the car's appearance.
