I believe its a 1950 Cadillac Series 62,(75% sure) however I didnt find any reference to the V located under the tail light housings, I dont know if this indicates a specific year or model, or both.. Everything else on the Back of the vehicles appears to match, MrCadillac would be the authority on this detail. link

I agree with "Firebird86" and "landrover1". It's a 1950 Cadillac [100%]; you can tell from the opening of the "V", below the Cadillac crest, and from the position of the dual, circular reversing lights (in 1949 the "V" was narrower, in 1951 the reversing lights became a part of the fin-mounted tail-light units and in 1952 the exhaust came through the rear bumper). It's hard to distinguish between the "Series 62" and the "Series 60 Special" sedans as both have the same body shell; the "60S" carries a series of vertical chevrons on the rear fenders, astern of the door openings, but you can't see that area in either of the two photos. In the smaller image, I noticed a small, non-original light(?) fixture to the left of the rear door handle; was this perhaps a French, after-market, lateral turn-signal indicator. I noticed also what appear as non-original "V"s below the rear tail-lights. I have no explanation for these.

These could be aftermarket red 'cats-eye' reflectors with decorative chrome frames/bezels. They were mandatory on US-cars in many European countries, in some of them they are up to this day.
