Central Cadillac 360 Central Avenue at Morris Avenue

Central Cadillac was New Jersey’s largest Cadillac dealer. This 1960 brochure shows a car that was brand new the same year I was. The showroom building of the dealership later became offices for Cablevision. The building is now for sale.IMG_2696 IMG_2698

  1. I remember Newark fondly from the 50’s and 60’s my Grandparents, The Ironbound, Little Italy. Shopping downtown with my mother and grandmother.. My father patronized the Dealership,, any other Memorabilia or photos bro on Central Cadillac

    1. Bill,
      Thank you for your comment. In 1980, I bought a brand new Honda Civic from International Honda in West New York, NJ. You were the salesman I believe. I still have your card ! Normally, I don’t remember such things but I never forgot your last name !


      1. Hi, thank’s for remembering me. a’lot of water under the bridge. hope you had luck with the car. Bill B


  3. 2022- The only two buildings that exist are 61 Morris Avenue (formerly Vehicle Safety Manufacturing and currently Fabi-Saa food brokers) and 380 Central Avenue (formerly Earl Scheib Paint & Body and currently L & D Auto Body & Paint) The current 81 Hartford Street Street building is different design setup as pictured and currently selling Upholstery Fabrics, Drapery & Curtain Fabrics (Shor Fabrics.)


  4. I love the article about 360 Central Ave. My Grandfather owned Fisher Cadillac in that building back in the later 40’s early 50’s which transformed to Central Cadillac. He retired to Western Pa in 1958.
    I would love to know if anyone with any sales materials or brochures from those facilities that I could add to my collection of pictures and memories.


    1. Thank you for writing. Newark automotive memorabilia sells well and at high prices. Most times I’m outbid when I attempt to buy it. In answer to your inquiry the brochure in my post is the only Central Cadillac memorabilia I have. I presume that is the only Newark dealership your interested in?
