The 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham was one of the most important automobiles of the post-WWII era. It combined Cadillac's luxurious chassis, powerful V8 engine and an advanced air-spring suspension with individually-crafted bodies conceived by Harley Earl and individually hand built at Cadillac. The special Eldorado engine had dual four-barrel carbs and was rated 325 horsepower. The 4-door hardtop Eldorado Brougham has suicide rear doors, brushed stainless steel roof and every possible option, accessory and convenience feature. It sold for over $13,000 -- at the time nearly enough to buy a matched pair of Eldorado Biarritz coupe and convertible -- and cost even more to build. Cadillac made only 400. It was instantly recognized as a classic. This example is complete, straight and solid, with no sign of rust. It is equipped with air conditioning and although it now is painted a very attractive Red was probably originally Black. The interior is upholstered in Grey cloth.
