It's a six because there's no 'vee' underneath the trunk emblem.
The '51 Ford is a Victoria hardtop.

Right you are. The V-8 had a 'vee' under the script 'Chevrolet' and the six had the Chevy emblem.

That's a 1966 Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty-Special. The Fleetwood Brougham has a vinyl top.

It's a 1965-66, but I can't tell which one. And its the longer wheelbase model, a bit bigger than a Calais (were they using that term yet?) or DeVille. By this time, I think they were calling this model either Sixty Special, or Fleetwood Sixty Special.
The telltale sign is the quarter window in back and the slim B-pillar. The lesser models were true hardtops.
Back in college, a local used car lot had a black '66 on their lot. Good shape, and they only wanted $2500 for it. I should have bought it! The driver's armrest was a bit daunting, with EIGHT window switches on it! Four for the windows, and four for each vent.

You sure know your Caddies Lem. This particular Fleetwood has a story.
Moral: It pays to be nice.
