1952 Cadillac Series Sixty-Two?

It is a Cadillac series 62 Coupe but not a 1952 : one can clearly see the single exhaust pipe on the right side under the bumper. 1952 Cadillacs had not a single but a dual exhaust line with exhausts that came out through exhaust ports in the bumper. This actually led to rapid bumper chrome corrosion. Furthermore since it is a period picture and since very few 1951 Cadillacs were sold with whitiwall tires due to material shortages gendered by the Korean war and because it still seems to have the sombrero hubcaps with the deep dish effect I am going for a 1950 Cadillac series 62 Coupe de Ville.

Just for clarification, the arch of the tail fins marks this as a 1950 model. (In 1951, the top of the fin was somewhat flattened.) There would also be small round backup lamps located on the face of the trunk lid, just above the bumper, but this photo is too poor to make out that detail. However, the short rear deck makes this the short wheelbase Series Sixty One Coupe. Another feature of the Series Sixty One is the lack of a chrome rocker molding on the front fender and below the door. I hope this information is of use.
