Were 60s luxury cars  smooth and quiet as they are today?

For example would a 1965 Cadillac be as smooth and quiet as the 2020 Mercedes S class or a Lexus ls.

    Actually many of the Early Luxury Cars were more comfortable than some of the newer models.  They rode smoother but did not handle as well due to their larger size.

    1959 Buick Electra 225 was all that. Electric everything.

    Old school cars were FAR smoother and quieter.

    At some point, they decided that ALL cars had to perform, including "luxury" cars.  Your new 2020 whatever will run through a race track better than a '60's car would -- but the 2020's car's suspension is stiff, not smooth.

    Probably less so, what with those huge V8 engines.

    Cars then were made of heavy metal, and clunky. They were good quality but not smooth and quiet by a long shot compared to today.
