Cadillac Brougham 1959 Description


YOU WANT RARE--and always appreciate--IMAGINE, nly 99 Cadillac's builtIN THIS YEAR-- and a older nut bolt frame off restoration--with only 500 miles--wil surely beat wall street--and the name of the game is rare--low NUMBERS.

The 1959 Cadillacs were nothing if not extravagant, ith big engines, osh interiors and even bigger fins. It was the ultimate fin treatment on Cadillacs, ccented with matching front and rear grille treatments and immense chrome bumpers like the exhaust ports on intergalactic space ships. Fortunately one Cadillac in 1959 was much more restrained, ven refined, he Eldorado Brougham hardtop. Its small, harp fins foreshadowed Cadillac's redesign for 1960. Its expansive flanks were attractively creased but free from gaudy embellishment. A flat windshield that eliminated the knee-knocker encroachments of the rest of Cadillac's wraparound screens foreshadowed 1961. The Eldorado Broughams were bodied in Italy by Pinin Farina on Cadillac's standard 130 inch wheelbase chassis equipped with 345hp 390 cubic inch triple carburetor engines shipped from the U.S., hen returned to Cadillac for completion at Fleetwood to customers' orders. The Eldorado Brougham's price of $13,074 FOB Detroit over a thousand dollars more than the median single family house value in the U.S. It's not surprising, hen, hat only 99 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Broughams were built, ollowed by 101 in 1960 when the model was dropped from Cadillac's catalog. In addition to being loaded with every available option and accessory in Cadillac's extensive catalog the Eldorado Brougham had rear door quarter windows that automatically retracted when the door latch was operated. It facilitated entry and exit, ut even today startles those who aren't prepared for it.

This 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham IS A NUT and BOLT, RAME OFF RESTOARTION--Imagine this would cost easily over $100K these days. It is finished in it's original Ebony color, rich black with luxurious blue cloth upholstery on the seats, oor panels and kick panels. It still rides on its air suspension system and has full wheel covers and whitewall tires. Its condition is exceptional, ith a quality older repaint and very good interior and chrome. It obviously has had extensive cosmetic attention not only to the exterior but also to the engine compartment, hich is fully detailed and very clean, nd the underbody. The black body is impressively straight, ith even door gaps and flush panel fits indicating the it was a strong, traight original car before the complete restoration work was undertaken. All chrome is perfect in all respects. All glass removed and new --with even all the side window fames dissembled and rechromed. Original sprayed red primer sheet metal coating on body floors. All upholstery redone. Engine Bay is immaculate and show quality.

A gorgeous, uxurious automobile, t has a presence that commands respect and appreciation.

Imagine in 5 years whats it worth? when NADA pegs current average retail at $112270, ith top of $181K and of course this is at the top condition. see pics--Dave 562 9005339
