What year Cadillacs are these?

Photo is the interior of a Chicago Cadillac dealer. Looks like about 1958 to me, but as I look more closely they might not all be the same year, making me think it might be the pre-owned department.

Single headlights on right and twice on the left. If nobody id's I'll get the book down and id if possible. 49' to 52' on first guess. I put a '50 331 V8 in my '53 Ford Victoria in the old days.

I'd guess more like mid-50's

In a quick look at some reference pages, it seems they didn't have double lights until 1957.

Ok, got the book down and the ones on the left are 1958's and the single headlight ones on the right are 1957's.
The 58's are probably Series 62 Sedan DeVille four-door hardtops. The 57's are probably Fleetwood 60 specials with no piller and called a hardtop convertible in the day.
Priced in the range of $4800 for the basic to $13,000 for the Eldorado which included lots of extras including Arpege atomizer with Lanvin perfume.

Long enough ago that the styling doesn't bother me.

They had that kicked up small fin in the back, like on the one in the right foreground, from about '49 to '56. I remember when the '57s came out, it was a big deal that they had "real" fins.

The windshields are all wrap-around, made only during the years 1954 to 1960.

Those on the left, lined up side-by-side, are all 1958.

Those on the right, lined up nose to butt, vary. The front car (back half only) is a 1955, as is the 3rd one in that row. The 2nd is a 1957. I cannot tell the years of the one to the right of the 1957 nor any of the others in the right half of the photo.

All my dad's Caddies (2 or 3? over the years) had fins.

(That should date me!)
