It's a 1961 model [note the horizontally-placed rear tail-light housings]. The images are not good enough to pinpoint the precise; it could be any one of these four: "Series 60 Special" sedan, 6-window "Sedan de Ville", "Series 62" 6-window sedan or "Series 62" short-deck sedan. Unless you can get some better pics, I'd leave it as "1961 Cadillac sedan". You can find the full model range for 1961, here:

You are correct. It's a '61. When I identified the car, the pic where it is about to t-bone the bus wasn't uploaded yet. As a hearse lover I am aware of the impact the horizontal '61 taillight layout had on the coachbuilders. The professional car (as hearses and ambulances are officially called) builders complained, that they couldn't fit wide enough back doors between the '61 taillights, so they had to cut them in half and make the inboard pieces integral with the door! The minimum width of the rear opening had to meet federal standards, even back then. That is the exact reason why Cadillac hastily reverted to vertical taillights for '62 and keep them that way for decades to come.

After increasing the brightness and zooming in on the rear fender, I can now assert with 100% certainty that this is a 1961 "Series 60 Special Fleetwood" (the official factory designation). But if "antp" wants to call it simply a "1961 Cadillac 60 Special", that's OK.

BTW, "Junkman", you say that the commercial car makers had to cut in half the horizontal tail-lights of the '61 Cadillacs and make the inboard pieces integral with the rear door! This is incorrect. In fact, if you look at any 1961 commercial car built on the Cadillac chassis, you will see that they have their own, special, round tail-light that is conmpletely different from those on that year's production models. Check out these pics :

Rather "Fleetwood 60 Special" I guess, like the others?
