The production of the Eldorado Brougham was from 1957 through 1958 and fewer than one thousand examples were ever built. They sold new for $13,074 which made them more expensive than the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud.
The Eldorado Brougham was a very stately and luxurious car that featured a stainless steel roof, air suspension, and the first memory power seats and every other convenience and comfort feature GM used at the time. Power was from a V8 engine that offered 310 horsepower.
This example is believed to have been originally bought by a member of the Rockefeller family. The original owner had the roof converted into a town car. The current owner purchased the car in 1968 and had the paint and upholstery restored in 1998. The 2009 Meadow Brook Concours d'Elegance was the first time the car was shown at a Concours.
