No contest for me.  The '61 shed the bulk and looked clean and lean, ready for the Jet Age. One of my favorite years.  To the best of my knowledge there are zero 1:43 models of this gorgeous year, unless you count the Dinky Toys 'flat top' sedan produced in the mid 60s.

Close call for the 61. If it was the 62 it wouldn't even be close.

The 1960 Cadillac was such a relief after the 1959 that I have to with it Smoother lines, smaller tail.

Absolutely the 1961.  The bulk of the 1960, though slightly less than the 1959, was still overbearing.  Ironically, the '61 Cadillac, other than the Chevrolet are the only two General Motors brands that year that I liked.

The '60 has sexy sheet metal, not unlike those of a '60 a Jag.  A pleasure to wash, wax and admire.
