Eldorado Special Sport Convertible Coupe
Harley Earl, General Motors Styling Chief, had this special custom 1956 Cadillac Supercharged Eldorado built, for his friend John Alexander, by test engineer Frank Burrell. John Alexander, a Wisconsin industrialist, was also a World War I Navy pilot.

All 1953 V8 Cadillacs were powered by a 331 cubic-inch, overhead valve engine, however, this one was fitted with a Roots-Type supercharger and twin four-barrel carburetors, developing 300 horsepower. To draw attention, special un-muffled side exhaust pipes were designed that could be opened via a cut-out lever, or closed for quiet operation. The engine is coupled to GM's Hydra-Matic automatic transmission and stopping was improved with the addition of new 12-inch cast-iron ribbed brake drums. It also features Borrani wire wheels riding on a 126-inch wheelbase.

This car represents a true one-of-a-kind Cadillac, the rarest Eldorado.
