RealRides of WNY - 1964 Cadillac

Found just about a year ago parked in Youngstown is this 1964 Cadillac Sedan de Ville. It’s one of two four-door hardtops offered that year in the de Ville series — this four-window and another in six-window guise. When I was a kid I never understood these terms, looking at the four-window hardtop and counting eight panes of glass (windshield, rear window, and two each of the vent window, and the front and rear door windows). Silly me. They were only talking about the side windows, of which this one has four — at least, four which go up and down. It also has two pivoting front vent windows. Looking at the six window Sedan de Ville in the brochure illustration below, we see that it also has only four windows which go up and down, two front pivoting vent windows, and two more fixed windows in the C-pillar. Six windows? I hope you’re as confused as I am.
