One of just 400 built, this 1957 Cadillac Series 70 Eldorado Brougham is one of the ultimate (and most expensive) sedans ever produced. In the especially rare combination of Kenya Beige Metallic with dark blue leather interior, this immaculate Caddy has been preserved to its original factory likeness. With a numbers matching 365 cubic inch, 300 horsepower engine, this Ed Glowacke-designed coach has a strong motor to match its stunning allure. The Detroit, Michigan-built Eldorado includes an abundance of power options, including windows, locks, brakes, vents, and front seat. Additionally, this ‘57 has the state of the art air conditioning. Not only with an air-cooled cabin, these cars had air suspension, contributing to a total cost of over $13,000 when sold new—General Motors’ highest priced car of the day. Perhaps the most compelling feature of the early Eldorado design is the stainless steel roof. Shining beautifully against this hand-built car’s color combination, the front-opening rear “suicide” doors reveal to a world of luxury, that even today—looks like the future. This sculpted display of steel, chrome, and leather has been pampered its entire life. With only a freshening repaint, this piece of art history is rarely available to own.Fast Bullet Points:- One of 400 Series 75 Eldorado Brougham Cadillacs ever made- Immaculate survivor condition, with merely a highly-professional repaint- Loaded with power options, including air conditioning- Handmade in Michigan, this is the most expensive GM car of the day- Kenya Beige Metallic with dark blue leather interior
