Cadillac Motor Car Division
Named after a French explorer who founded Detroit, Cadillac started as the remnants of Henry Ford's failed first car company in 1902. Engineer Henry M Leland was called in to liquidate the assets of the Ford business and decided instead to restart manufacture using Leland's own engine. The marque was named 'Cadillac' after an aristocratic ancestor of Leland and the badge was based on a coat of arms from Quebec. Leland quickly established mass production for Cadillac, but also innovation and quality. In 1909 William C Durant bought Cadillac as the prestige brand for his General Motors corporation. Leland was retained by Durant at Cadillac and ensured that the brand won the Dewar trophy in 1914, and that they introduced the first water-cooled V8 in 1914. Leland left Cadillac in 1917 and founded the Lincoln Motor Company to build aircraft engines, but branched off into building luxury cars. Ford bought Lincoln in 1922 and Leland left. In 1926 Cadillac employed Harley J. Earl at first on a temporary contract but soon to head up the new Art and Colour department at a time when most manufacturers allowed external suppliers to design and build their bodies.
