Cadillac’s 1906 & 1963 Logos


In 1906, the Cadillac logo resembled more of a royal family's coat of arms than a car owner's emblem. The shield, which featured swans and parallel lines, indicated that the family descended from the royal counts of Toulouse. The circular framing and crown on the shield helped to emphasize the company's opulence. The wordmark "La Mothe Cadillac" was shown at the bottom of the picture. Between 1906 and 1955, numerous variations of this logo were used, including a design with a spherical border made up of tiny crowns and fewer angular forms.

The 1960s was a decade when Cadillac's symbol grew famous, particularly the design seen in that decade. The 1963 logo resurrected the wreath form around the main Cadillac shield, which had been discontinued since 1936. This iconic photograph has been associated with the Cadillac brand for over 40 years. The memorable colors of the Cadillac symbol appeared here.
Cadillac combined two graphic symbols from the company's past to create the 1963 logo. The floral wreath encircles the corporate coat of arms. Again, this design dazzled in five colors—black, blue, red, white and yellow. This logo was regarded as the most famous Cadillac logo and was used for 37 years.

About Cadillac
The Cadillac Motor Car Division is a division of General Motors (GM) that designs and produces luxury automobiles. In the United States, Cadillac vehicles are among the most luxurious automobiles on the market.

Cadillac is the world's first automobile, fourth in the United States only to Autocar Company (1897) and fellow GM marques Oldsmobile (1897) and Buick (1899). The city's name derives from Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac, a French-Canadian fur trader who established Detroit, Michigan in the late 18th century. His coat of arms served as inspiration for the Cadillac emblem.

Cadillac had already established itself as one of the country's greatest luxury car producers before General Motors acquired it in 1909. Its interchangeability in terms of precision components had allowed it to lay the groundwork for today's mass production of automobiles. It was at the forefront of technological discoveries, including full electrical systems, a clash less manual gearbox, and a steel roof. Three engines were introduced by the brand, setting the bar for automobile production in the United States.

In 1908, Cadillac was the first automobile produced by the United States to win the Dewar Trophy from the Royal Automobile Club of the United Kingdom, demonstrating the interchangeability of its components during a reliability test; as a result, Cadillac adopted its slogan "Standard of the World." The Duryea brothers' invention was the first car with an electrical system, which it obtained for its unique design and performance. In 1912, it earned a prize for incorporating electric starting and lighting in a mass-produced vehicle.

Cadillac was the preferred vehicle brand for Elvis Presley, who owned over 100 Cadillacs throughout his life.

Harley Jarvis Earl was General Motors' first head designer and subsequently its vice president. He was the first to create a "concept vehicle," and his technical and design background helped him create some of GM's and Cadillac's most iconic vehicle designs and features, such as the tailfin and Chevrolet Corvette. GM was one of the first automobile companies to hire female designers in the mid-1950s, and they were also among the first to do so. Suzanne Vanderbilt, Jeanette Linder, Ruth Glennie, Sandra Longyear, Marjorie Ford Pohlman and Peggy Sauer were among the “Damsels in Design” who worked on GM brand interiors. Four additional women—Gere Kavanaugh, Jan Krebs, Dagmar Arnold and Jayne Van Alstyne were also "Damsels in Design" who worked on GM car displays and other related projects.

The year 2022 is Cadillac’s 120th anniversary, a major milestone for the Company.

General Motors Muscle Cars & Logo

GENERAL MOTORS MUSCLE CARS AND PERFORMANCE VEHICLES

General Motors helped forge the muscle car segment with multiple entries from Pontiac, Buick, Oldsmobile, and Chevrolet. GM’s muscle car heritage can be traced as far back as the late 1940’s with the introduction of the Rocket V8 engine in the Oldsmobile 88, with the variant named the “Rocket 88”. It’s significant to note that some historians consider the Rocket 88 to be the first muscle car in the world. Not long after, the segment really started to hit its stride in the 1960’s, thanks to legendary names such as the Pontiac GTO, Chevrolet Chevelle, Chevrolet Impala SS, and others.

Evolving from the muscle car segment was the legendary pony car segment. The first entries from General Motors were the 1967 Chevrolet Camaro, as well as the 1967 Pontiac Firebird. The pony car segment was characterized by their more compact proportions from their muscle car forerunners, more accessible MSRP, rear wheel drive, and more youthful appeal.

In the 1960’s, American performance vehicles could be grouped into three categories; the large bodied, high-displacement engined, RWD muscle car such as the Pontiac GTO and Impala SS; the pony car segment that included the Chevrolet Camaro; and the two-seat sports car segment that represented the Corvette.

The definition of Muscle Car and the definition of a Pony Car begins to blur as time goes on, as choices for American performance vehicles began to shrink, and nameplates traditionally known for their low prices and mass appeal have begun to creep upmarket. Currently, the term “muscle car” has evolved into a catch-all when describing American performance vehicles, including the two-seat Corvette. This is especially common among more removed European automotive media.

Using the term very loosely, the only muscle cars that are sold by General Motors today are the Chevrolet Camaro and Corvette. But as outlined by the classical definition above, the Camaro is a pony car, while the Corvette is a sports car.

Below is a comprehensive breakdown of current and former General Motors muscle cars and other performance vehicles, by brand.

Summary:

General Motors is an American automaker based in Detroit, Michigan that designs, builds and sells virtually every kind of automobile that can be purchased all over the world. From full electric vehicles such as the Chevrolet Bolt EV, to massive commercial medium duty pickup trucks, to extreme performance vehicles like the Corvette ZR1. And while the GM product portfolio offers a wide breadth of vehicles, its fanbase and reputation has largely been built on its legacy of selling groundbreaking muscle cars, pickup trucks, sports cars, and sport utility vehicles.

General Motors is the largest automaker from America, and one of the largest in the world, normally battling either Toyota Motor Corporation or Volkswagen AG for the top spot sales spot globally.

GM’s current active brands in North America are Chevrolet, GMC, Cadillac and Buick. Meanwhile, it still sells vehicles in Australia and New Zealand under the Holden brand, while the Chinese market has GM brands of their own. These include Baojun and Wuling.
History:

General Motors was founded by William C. Durant on September 16, 1908 as a holding company, and first purchased Buick Motor Company. Oldsmobile, Cadillac, and Pontiac (formally known as Oakland) followed shortly after. Ultimately, Durant lost control of General Motors in 1910 as a deal to buy Ford Motor Company for $8 million fell through. At the time of Durant’s ousting, General Motors was $1 million in debt. Adjusted for inflation, that’s nearly $27 million in 2019 dollars.

Despite the setback, Durant went on to co-found the Chevrolet Motor Company in 1911 with racer Louis Chevrolet. Durant re-joined GM in 1916 after Chevrolet purchased 54.5 percent of the company, thanks to a backing from Pierre du Pont.

Fast forward to 2009, and a bloated General Motors filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy, following a US government “bailout” of $13.4 billion from the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) that was approved by former president George W Bush in December 2008.
