![CDATA[
Introduced in 1953 the Eldorado was Cadillac’s flagship. It was also the pinnacle of automotive achievement and the aspirational dream of every GM car buyer. Only the most successful of individuals could afford the hefty $7,286 price tag, and ownership of one was akin to driving a trophy that proclaimed your professional success.

Even though the hardtop Eldorado Seville and the equivalent convertible Eldorado Biarritz first went on sale in 1956, 1957 brought about several important updates, both mechanically and cosmetically. New for that year was Cadillac’s X-frame construction, which saw increased structural rigidity and helped to make the Eldorado’s ride even more sublime. The 1957 Eldorados also received a complete restyling to go along with its new mechanical components; it was inspired by Cadillac’s Eldorado Brougham and Park Avenue show cars. The car was given a distinctive tail treatment, with rounded flanks and each bearing a single shark-like fin.

This fine example was registered new in 1957 and has previously benefitted from an extensive restoration. Having been part of a private collection the Eldorado comes to the open market in very good order indeed. It is reported to run very well and is a joy to drive. Finished in a very period colour scheme the paintwork and interior are both presented well. Offered with a sizeable history file including bills from the restoration, receipts dating back to 1998, previous MoT test certificates, various photos, sundry invoices, and the UK V5C registration document. Eldorado Sevilles rarely come to the open market and this example, being in such good order, is a fantastic opportunity to acquire such a car.
