1958 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham The 1950s are seen by many as the golden age for the automobile in the United States as powerful V8 engines, revolutionary luxury, comfort features, and tail fins were the norm back then. There is no doubt that Cadillac played a key role in this era where U.S. cars were big, powerful, shiny, and a true status symbol. The Eldorado is one of the most iconic nameplates from that time and the absolute best of what Cadillac had to offer. A four-door sedan that cost more than a Ferrari or a Rolls-Royce ($13,974, or $125,704 in today\'s dollars), the \'58 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham defined postwar opulence and Cadillac luxury and style - it just might be the finest Caddy ever built. It\'s also one of the rarest - only 740 Eldo Bros were ever produced. Fully disappearing side windows, rear-hinged back doors, a brushed steel roof, quad headlights, and a whole heap of 1930s throwback features were all part of the elegant package. All right here in our Classic Auto Mall Halls for your consideration. Fly me to the moon.... Exterior 1 of 304 total units built in 1958, this car leapt off the designers pad and ran its way through the plant, and still has a timeless look and feel like none other. From its dual headlights upward curved bumper Dagmars, and massive egg crate grille in the center, and then add in some more bumper below complete with the running lights inserted, and we have shown up BIG TIME. The large wrap around down to the grille hood is perfectly badged with the V chevron and E L D O R A D O badge above in beautiful condition. As it makes its way back to the wrap around front glass it\'s painted in white like the rest of the car, there is a stainless polished vent to allow for airflow into the cabin. The front quarters have more vents inserted into their tops near the doors, and an added bonus on the sides are the beginnings of a trim spear. This spear makes its way back just above the front wheel wells, through the beltline of the doors, and on the rear quarter makes a downward forward facing C curve trimming the opening of a vent in the rear quarter just fore of the mid rear door which is hinged at the back of the door, sharing a common latch with the front doors on the B pillar. Peering rearward we see 2 large fins which are topped with more chrome trim and framing the taillights that curve outward creating a corner for themselves just above the rear bumper. Speaking of which, more big chrome for the split bumpers on the rear complete with solid Dagmars and u-shaped exhaust ports within each bumper. This chrome is equally as beautiful as the styling but presenting in a worn condition. On top is a brushed stainless steel roof. While we are handing out stainless give some more to the lower rear quarters, and rocker covers just for some giggles. 15 inch Sabre Spoke chrome Wwheels are wrapped by medium wide whites on all 4 corners. I wanna be a part of it..if I can make it there, I\'ll make it, anywhere... Interior As we swing the common latched B pillar doors open black and white smooth leather with some extra padding vie for space with black taking up the top and bottom edge, and white claiming and filling the center. For your convenience within the driver door are all the window toggles, door lock actuator knob, and round button and indicator windowed round knobs to have infinite power control over seat position. Speaking of the seats, they are what we used to call couches, in black buttoned and tufted supple leather, and central pull-down armrest. Slight folds and a few areas of wear also show on these couches for the front and back passengers. For the front passenger we see a built in electric lighter and ash receptacle right into the armrest...now that\'s convenience. The dash with its black padded top that is worn and has some ungluing and folding, has plenty of chrome bezels for the litany of gauges you have to choose from to monitor right in front of the orig
