Known History

At Cadillac, the Eldorado was the flagship of the range and it remained very successful for the 50 years it was on sale. Belonging to the second generation, the example on offer belongs to the 1955 model year, and is, as such, particularly interesting. Indeed, it is from this year that the first aerodynamic appendages appeared, with the trapezoidal fins located on the rear fenders. Luxurious, with a powerful engine and flamboyant, the Eldorado was a milestone in the history of the automobile.

Sold new in California, this car would have had only one owner until 2014, when it was bought by a garage owner, in Indianapolis. The latter then carried out a restoration, the mechanicals were completely overhauled, just like the ivory-colored bodywork. The upholstery was also redone, including the hood and its motorized opening system. Its current owner, a serious collector, acquired the car in 2016, and has covered nearly 1,500 km since then, very happy with the car's ease of use. The car was regularly maintained by a mechanic friend, and an additional electric fan was added to meet current traffic conditions. Modern in many ways for its time, this Eldorado will surely offer its new owner an extraordinary driving experience, and its exceptional appearance will not leave anyone indifferent to its looks.
