1959 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham in West Palm Beach, Florida
1959 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham in West Palm Beach, Florida

Description

  This 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham hardtop is #53 of 99 built. It

  is powered by the original 390ci V8 engine mated to a Hydramatic

  automatic transmission. Car #53 had one repaint done in its

  original black color, but the gray broadcloth interior is

  all-original. The coachwork was done by famed Italian coachbuilder

  Pininfarina, best known for the styling of Ferrari and Alfa Romeo

  automobiles. With an original sticker price of nearly $14,000,

  these were twice the cost of an Eldorado Biarritz convertible and

  even more expensive than a Rolls-Royce. Cadillac air conditioning,

  cruise control and automatic headlamp control were included as

  standard equipment. The Cadillac's 1959 model lineup included an

  all-new, second-generation Eldorado Brougham, but this Brougham did

  not come from the Fleetwood plant in Detroit; it was hand-built

  4,000 miles away in Turin, Italy, by Pininfarina. Pre-tested

  Cadillac chassis were crated and shipped to Italy by boat, and the

  completed cars were shipped back to Detroit for final finishing,

  testing and shipment to dealers. This partnership with the Italian

  coachbuilder was the first of several times that Cadillac would put

  an Italian body on an American chassis and powertrain. 52,152 miles

  (title reads exempt). From the Prestige Collection. ** PREVIEW
