The Series 60 (new last year) added a new Convertible Sedan body style. Throughout the line there were a few body changes including:

Series 60 shared many features with the LaSalle, but used the 5.678 Liter V-8 engine. A Series 60 Commercial Chassis with 4074mm wheelbase was offered.

8-Cylinder - Series 65

The new Series 37-65 was offered in only one body style--a five passenger Touring Sedan built by Fisher on the 3327mm wheelbase used on Series 70 cars.

This car was longer and heavier than the Series 60 at a price below that of the Fleetwood bodies cars.
