Rolling with my homies in my newly bought 1960 Eldorado Brougham, it's car #86 of 101 built, hand made in Italy by Pinin Farina, the rarest post war production Cadillacs that exist are these and the 99 built in 1959 and still somewhat under the radar. The 57-58s are worth a ton more but I don't think they're anywhere as elegant.
It came fully equipped and there were no options to buy, choose your color and trim, it was a whopping $13,000 new, the equivalent of $100,000 in today's money. She's rides like she's on air because she is.
She was originally called Le Mans and she was obviously changed for the 1962 Chicago Auto Show with a a wreath and crest on the trunk lid, the letters ELDORADO replacing the Le Mans badge and a grille that reflected the new 1962 models.She looks way better in this configuration and it would be historically accurate to restore her to this stage in her life. These pictures were sent from GM's archives, they were taken on the patio at the design studios in Detroit. There is tons of stuff slowly coming out about this car, it's exciting.
