Regulator/Rectifiers for Cadillac Vehicles

Cadillac, the flagship luxury and sport performance marque of General Motors, actually began from the remnants of Henry Ford’s first foray into the automotive world before the Ford Motor Company.  A dispute with his investors led to Ford and several key partners leaving the company in March of 1902.  At the request of Ford’s investors William Murphy and Lemuel Bowen, Henry M. Leland was brought in to appraise the former Ford factory at Cass Street and Amsterdam Avenue in Detroit.  Instead, Leland convinced Murphy and Bowen to continue production at the company, but with Leland’s single-cylinder engine instead of Ford’s engine.  Five months later, Cadillac Automobile Company (named after French explorer and Detroit city founder, Antoine Laumet de La Mothe, sieur de Cadillac) was born and in 1909, Cadillac was incorporated into General Motors’ lineup.  They became GM’s new premier division, placing emphasis on luxury cars for affluent customers.  Cadillac also was to be the supplier for GM’s professional (commercial) chassis such as limousines, ambulances, and hearses.  After World War II, Cadillac went through massive growth and became the world leader in both style and engineering advancements.  Examples of these genuine automotive “firsts” include auto-dimming headlights, the first signal-seeking radio, and the dual-reservoir brake master cylinder--all, of which, are standard equipment on today’s modern car.  Unfortunately, the company once known as the “Standard Of the World” had grown fat and would spend the next 40 years in a downward spiral.  After decades of failures which tarnished the brand to a state of virtual disrepair, a change for a bright and prosperous future would happen in the mid-2000s with the introduction Cadillac’s then-new “Art & Science” philosophy.  This new focus on state-of-the-art engineering, world class performance, and cutting-edge design brought Cadillac from the brink of irrelevance.  Gone were the large, anonymous, floaty land barges of old like the Fleetwood Brougham, Sedan Deville, and Eldorado.  Hot new models such as the CTS, the high-performance V-Series of luxury sport GT cars, and the full-size Escalade SUV helped restore Cadillac’s public image and put them back in direct competition against the finest from Stuttgart and Munich.
