1959 Cadillac Broadmoor Skyview news, pictures, specifications, and information
Wagon
Coachwork: Superior Coach
 
The Broadmoor Skyview was built by Superior Coach of Lima, Ohio on a Cadillac commercial chassis. Production of six 1959 Skyviews have been verified. All were delivered to the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, Colorado, where they replaced a fleet of 1955 and 1956 S&S Cadillac observation coaches as VIP transportation.

To amortize development costs, the Skyview shared a body shell and chassis with higher-volume Superior ambulance and Royale hearse models. Dimensions were generous; a 156-inch wheelbase and a 251-inch overall length provided stretch-out comfort and a limousine-style ride. With all the eye-catching beauty of the 1959 Cadillac, plus wide-opening doors and plenty of interior room height, the Skyview offered executive transportation for eight Broadmoor guests plus luggage. Plexiglas observation roof panels provided for an extraordinary view. Leather seating was standard, along with power steering, power brakes, a 390 cubic-inch V8 engine and gold-plated 'Broadmoor' emblems on those iconic 1959 fins.

This Broadmoor Skyview example made its debut at the St. Johns Concours in 2012. Although restoration was completed in 2005, it had not been previously shown.
