1958 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham

Bask in the grandeur and elegance of this 1958 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham edition. The Brougham edition was the most spec’d trim level you could get at the time. Notice the spherical points on the front bumper and the air inlets on the top fenders.  The Eldorado is a true testament to American automotive styling in the 1950’s.

Some information about the Eldorado:

The Cadillac Eldorado is a personal luxury car that was manufactured and marketed by Cadillac from 1953 to 2002 over ten generations.
The Eldorado was at or near the top of the Cadillac line during early model years. The original 1953 Eldorado convertible and the Eldorado Brougham models of 1957–1960 were the most expensive models that Cadillac offered those years.
1957 was chiefly notable for the introduction of one of GM’s most memorable designs, the Series 70 Eldorado Brougham. Announced in December 1956 and released around March 1957, the Eldorado Brougham was a hand-built, limited car derived from the Park Avenue and Orleans show cars of 1953–54. Designed by Ed Glowacke, it featured the first appearance of quad headlights and totally unique trim. The exterior ornamentation included wide, ribbed lower rear quarter beauty panels extending along the rocker sills and rectangularly sculptured side body “cove” highlighted with five horizontal windsplits on the rear doors.
