Cadillac implemented another redesign for the 1971 model of the Series 75. This redesign led the ’71 model to set a record for the longest interior width of any car on the market. It wasn’t until the full size GM rear-wheel-drive models of the early to mid-1990s until that record was matched. To further emphasize the wideness of the car, Cadillac set the individually housed squarish headlamps further apart. This truly is a behemoth of a luxury vehicle.
