1953 Cadillac Series 62 Eldorado Special Sport Convertible Coupe Vehicle Profile

1953 Cadillac Series 62
Eldorado Special Sport Convertible Coupe
Cadillac released the Eldorado late in 1953 as a limited-edition 'super-convertible' in the popular Series 62 line of V8s. It sported just about every conceivable option that Cadillac offered, and this was reflected in the hefty $7,750 price tag.

The Eldorado sported a wraparound windshield, chrome wire wheels and a convertible top that disappeared into a metal covered boot. The cut-down doors, lowered beltline and shortened windshield created a unique, rakish look that made this Eldorado 'Dream Car' one of the sportiest Cadillacs since the 1940s.

The car is powered by a 331 cubic-inch overhead-valve, V8 engine producing 210 horsepower, coupled to a hydra-matic automatic transmission. It has a top speed in excess of 100 miles per hour.
