The Best Way to Customize Your Cadillac Calais


Calais, one of Cadillac’s productions was the entry-level Cadillac model that was sold from 1965 to 1976. Cadillac renamed the Series 62 “Calais” in 1965, after the French town and resort which overlooks the narrowest point in the English Channel. Another interesting fact about the name is in Greek mythology, the name “Calais” was also one of two winged sons of Boreas, the god of the North Wind, and Oreithyea.

In 1965, Calais tail fins were canted slightly downward, and sharp, distinct body lines were featured. This vehicle had so many new features which included, rear bumpers were straight and the rear lamp clusters were vertical, the headlight pairs were vertical, permitting a wide grille. As well as side windows were curved and frameless. Perimeter frame construction allowed positioning of the engine forward in the frame, which meant lowering the transmission hump and increasing interior room. The Calais was available as a 2- or 4-door hardtop as well as a “formal-roof” 4-door sedan, which was a hybrid with frameless, hardtop-like windows, but with a pillar between them. The Cadillac Calais was completely restyled and redesigned, inside and out, for 1971. With all these great features the question still stands on how to best customize this amazing vehicle.
