Eldorado Special Sport Convertible Coupe
Chassis Num: 536253662
Sold for $137,500 at 2009 RM Sothebys.

Sold for $181,500 at 2018 Barrett-Jackson.
The exciting news at General Motors for 1953 was the Eldorado, which was based on the Motorama Show car. The car was long and low with a convertible bodystyle featuring a unique, deep-angle wraparound windshield and a daring beltline dip. When the convertible top was down, it was carefully concealed under a metal cover at the top of the rear deck. The car rode on chrome wire wheels and whitewall tires. This very elegant and rare car was priced at $7,750 making it the most expensive car GM had offered in its post-war history to date.

Due to the hand labor and extensive modifications required to make each of the 532 examples, Cadillac is reputed to have lost money on every car it produced.

Power for the Eldorado was supplied by Cadillac's new 210 horsepower overhead valve V8 engine. Every option available was supplied to the Eldorado, making the addition of the 12 volts electrical system a necessity. The list of standard accessories included power steering, a power seat, a heater, power windows, a signal-seeking pre-selector radio, windshield washers, and a power-operated convertible top.

This example was sold new to Vance Torrance, a Hollywood movie producer. It is one of only 29 examples that were equipped from the factory with the 'Continental' spare tire kit. It is painted in Alpine White finish with a white convertible top. The car rides on Kelsey-Hayes 40-spoke chrome-plated wire wheels, and period correct wide whitewall tires. The interior is black and white two-tone leather that shows some signs of wear.

In 2009, this Eldorado Convertible was offered for sale at the Automobiles of Arizona auction presented by RM Auctions. The car was expected to sell for $150,000 - $180,000. As bidding came to a close the lot had been sold for the sum of $137,500 including buyer's premium.
