Walt,

I'm relatively certain it was 1940.

1940 signals were manual canceling. 1941 were the first fully automatic canceling turn signals.l

Right on about the first Cadillac self-cancelling turn signals. But I think that the '40 Buick might have had self-cancelling turn signals.

From the users standpoint "yes".  From the mechanical standpoint "No".

My '40's turn signals are not self canceling, but at my age you're expected to leave them on all the time.
