Description

1958 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham for sale! Motorcar Classics is proud to present this stunning 1958 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham. Imagine if an American automaker today built a four-door sedan that was priced higher than a new Ferrari or Rolls-Royce. This is exactly what happened back in the late 1950s. Ford had upped the ante with the introduction of its 1956 Continental Mark II, a two-door coupe so elite that the Blue Oval didn t even bother calling it a Lincoln. General Motors needed an answer. A car so outlandish, so well-equipped, and so exclusive, that it would set the bar for American luxury. Cadillac s answer was the 1957 Eldorado Brougham, a four-door hardtop sedan that featured quad headlights; side windows that disappeared completely, frames and all; rear-hinged rear doors, which were a throwback to the 1930s; and a broad expanse of sparkling brushed stainless steel for the roof. The engineering staff worked out a litany of power accessories. The trunk lid and not only opened with the push of a button, but they closed with one too, and the doors would lock automatically when the transmission was put in gear. A memory front seat was a first for a production car, as were the forged aluminum wheels. Naturally, there was air conditioning. All of this elegance came at a cost of over $13,000. Cadillac reportedly lost $10,000 on every car built, which was why the model lasted for only two years with just 704 examples produced, 400 in 1957, and 304 in 1958.Although its early history is unknown, this Eldorado was once part of the famed John O Quinn Collection. It is finished in Black over a white leather interior accented by black buttons, matching the original Cadillac build records from the GM Archives. It was restored in the late 1990s and the original air springs changed to conventional coil springs for reliability. Body contours and panel fit are very good, with the paint and brightwork free from flaws. The engine compartment is clean and appropriately detailed. The select items from the coveted vanity set include tumblers, acrylic cigarette case, perfume bottle, notepad, and vanity case. The car has been an important part of serious collections, and it is still capable of turning heads on prestigious concur lawns.
