Brougham
Coachwork: Pininfarina
Chassis #: 87
The 1960 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham is a little-known, but highly significant automobile. Perhaps its most notable distinction is the fact that it is the last of the custom-bodied Cadillac's. The bodies on these cars were hand built in Italy by Pinin Farina Coachworks and shared no sheet metal or glass with factory-built 1960 Cadillac's. At $13,075, the Edorado Brougham was priced nearly three times higher than a standard Cadillac and would compete with Rolls Royce and Bentley. It exhibited a refinement of detail only possible by meticulous hand craftsmanship. Every body panel was hand hammered into shape and is unique to the Brougham. There are no seams anywhere in the body work, and doors, hood and trunk lid were all fitted with exacting panel gaps. Chrome trim was far more subdued and vastly more delicate than that of standard Cadillac's. Of particular note is the seamless windshield and rear glass surrounds hand made from chrome-plated brass and individually fitted to each car.

Most Eldorado Broughams were built to customer order and a new owner need only specify leather or broadcloth upholstery with sheared mouton or nylon blend loop carpet. Every available Cadillac accessory was standard equipment, including air suspension, air conditioning, cruise control and a high performance Eldorado engine with three 2-barrel carburetors. Styling was handled by Cadillac's top stylist, Dave Holls and Chuck Jordan, and the 1960 Brougham set the tone for styling of standard Cadillac's for years to come.

This is body 87 of the 101 Broughams built in 1960. The original owner, industrialist Otto Nieman, used this car only as his special occasion vehicle and it generally stayed in the garage while two Fleetwoods served as daily drivers. Jim Todd, the Cadillac franchise owner in Central Valley, NY who sold the car new in July 1960, repurchased it from Mr. Nieman's estate in the early 1980s. This car was then put on display in his Cadillac showroom until February 2002, when Mr. Todd decided to retire.

The result of its sheltered life are the like-new condition of the leather covering the seats, door panels, rear package shelf and garnish moldings. The carpet is the original sheared mouton. Best of all, this car still rides beautifully on its original air suspension. Aside from minor paint retouching this is one of the finest and most original 1960 Eldorado Broughams in existence.
