1953 Cadillac Series 62 / 536 282229 Chassis Information

Eldorado Special Sport Convertible Coupe
Chassis Num: 536 282229
Sold for $121,000 at 2007 Christies.
Sold for $165,000 at 2008 RM Sothebys.
This 1953 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible was offered for sale at the 2007 Christies auction of 'Exceptional Motor Cars at the Monterey Jet Center.' It is white with a white interior and top. Under the bonnet is a V8 engine with pushrod overhead valves and 210 available horsepower. There is a four-speed automatic gearbox and servo-assisted hydraulic drums on all four corners.

The Eldorado first appeared in 1953 at the General Motors Motorama show where it was filled with advancements that would trickle their way into other GM cars for years to come. These were the widest, longest and sat lower than any other Cadillac had ever done. To propel the car, Cadillac outfitted these vehicles with the largest production car engine in the world. 532 examples were sold and each carried an extremely high price tag of $7,750.

This car has been in the same possession for the past twenty years. It has seen very little use and was used as a static display in a European museum exhibit. It was offered at auction without reserve and estimated to sell for $100,000 - $140,000. That estimated proved to be very accurate, as a high bid of $121,000 fell right in between the high and low, and the car was sold.
