Cadillac Eldorado Brougham (1957)


Cadillac Eldorado Brougham (1957)

Making its mark as the most expensive Cadillac of the 1950s, the Eldorado Brougham featured every conceivable extra, and then some. Each car was hand built, and it was incredibly smooth and quiet to ride in thanks to the airbag suspension and precise automatic transmission. The car used the now familiar panoramic windshields front and rear, but unusually returned to suicide-style opening doors for the rear. Cadillac made sure the chassis was immensely strong to allow both side doors to top open without a central pillar. There were 44 interior and exterior color options, but the car came standard with toys such as electric memory seats, cruise control, air-conditioning, and power windows, brakes and steering. The extras weighed down the car considerably hence, despite the power, the Brougham was sufficiently fast, as opposed to rapid.
