Eldorado Special Sport Convertible Coupe
Chassis #: 536276687
Sold for $132,000 at 2007 Vintage Motor Cars at Amelia Island.
A principal feature at the New York Motor Show, the 'Golden One' was Cadillac's most expensive model at $7,750. This model bristled with options, including factory air-conditioning, an 'Auronic Eye' for controlling the headlamps, chrome wire wheels, and signal-seeking radio. Only 532 examples of this model were produced in 1953.

This 1953 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible was offered for sale at the 2007 RM Auctions in Amelia Island, Florida. The car was offered without reserve and estimated to sell between $100,000 - $140,000. It is powered by a 331 cubic-inch overhead valve V8 engine that produces 210 horsepower. The car is equipped with a Hydra-Matic automatic gearbox and four-wheel power assisted drum brakes.

The post war era of the automobile was exciting. Many of the designs were carried over from before the war. A few marque's experimented with new styling; some were met with success while others ended up out of business.

GM enticed buyers with bold new designs which were lead by their exciting Motorama cars. These cars were futuristic and gave hints at the direction of the automobile. The Eldorado of 1953 was based on a show car from the prior year. It featured a convertible top, wraparound windshield, mostly-covered rear wheels, and custom interior.

The car cost $7,750 which was nearly double the price of a coupe. With only 532 examples created, it was a very exclusive automobile and rare by modern standards.

Under the hood of the Eldorado was a Cadillac overhead valve engine. The engine had been introduced in 1949 and was attractive for many reasons - it was powerful and lightweight. As the years progressed, the horsepower increased. By 1953 it had risen to 210.

This example has been treated to a full restoration. The exterior was finished in cream and all the chrome was triple plated. The interior is finished in red and white.

At auction, the quality of the restoration was reward and the limited production numbers was understood, as the car sold for $132,000.
