Cadillac Repair in Mount Pleasant, Iowa
A Brief History of Cadillac
Cadillac was formed from the remnants of the Henry Ford Company, after Henry Ford left his company due to a conflict with his investors. Ford’s investors, William Murphy and Lemuel Bowen, then hired engineer Henry M. Leland and began manufacturing automobiles using Leland’s proven single-cylinder engine.
From there, Cadillac Automobile Company was established on August 22, 1902. Cadillac’s first cars were the Runabout and Tonneau: two-seat horseless carriages that were completed in October 1902. Cadillac displayed the new vehicles at the New York Auto Show in January 1903, gathering an impressive 2,000 orders.
Cadillac cars were often ranked number one in the United States because of their precise engineering and stylish luxury finishes. In 1909, Cadillac was purchased by General Motors (GM) conglomerate and began producing large luxury vehicles such as limousines and ambulances.
The iconic Cadillac tailfins were added in 1948 and reached their peak in 1959. Cadillac is famed for being the first company to introduce seat belts in the first row of their vehicles starting in 1963; this led to the eventual passing of a federal law that made this a requirement for all vehicles.
In 1964, Cadillac also became the first to produce a car that had an automatic air conditioning and heating system – features we take for granted in our vehicles today! By 1982, this system was implemented in all Cadillac cars. In 1990, Cadillac won the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award and two years later their Seville Touring Sedan was recognized as the “Cadillac of the Year.” To this day, Cadillacs still stand out on the roads of Mount Pleasant, Winfield, Salem, New London, Fort Madison, and beyond.
