There were four-hundred examples of the Cadillac Eldorado Brougham created in 1957. They featured Harley Earl designs like a wrap-around windshield and a low cut, bulging beltline. The 1957 through 1960 Cadillac Eldorado Broughams were the last truly handcrafted Cadillacs. The inspiration for their design came from the Brougham Dream Car concept of the 1955 General Motors Motorama and were aimed at the most discriminating, luxury-oriented customers.
This Eldorado Brougham is an elegant Ebony over black leather combination example riding on period-correct whitewall tires. It benefits from a recent restoration and has been well maintained throughout its life.
In 2011, the car was offered for sale at the St. John auction presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $90,000 - $120,000. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $77,500, including buyer's premium.
