After the war ended in 1945, Detroit started gearing up for the unquenchable desire for new automobiles and the mass return of GI's with lots of money in their pockets. The nation's returning military created a demand for new automobiles for several years.

When the new 1948 Cadillac hit the street there was one very noticeable styling change that set it apart from the rest of Detroit's new post-war American Automobiles.

Dealers across the nation didn't like the new Cadillac, but the general public did. The 1948 Cadillac had a long smooth body that was accented by two small tailfins on top of the rear quarter panels. The practical use of the tailfin had been around for several years prior to the 1948 Cadillac. The fin's influence in American Automobile design can be traced back to Cadillac.
