1959 Cadillac Brougham


A perfect and Rare (only 99 built) investment to add to your fun and excitement while a rising investment in your portfolio. These cars are set to really take-off as so many rare low production classic cars have lately.

The 1959 Cadillacs were nothing if not extravagant, with big engines, posh interiors and even bigger fins. It was the ultimate fin treatment on Cadillacs, accented with matching front and rear grille treatments and immense chrome bumpers like the exhaust ports on intergalactic space ships. Fortunately one Cadillac in 1959 was much more restrained, even refined, the Eldorado Brougham hardtop. Its small, sharp fins foreshadowed Cadillac's redesign for 1960. Its expansive flanks were attractively creased but free from gaudy embellishment. A flat windshield that eliminated the knee-knocker encroachments of the rest of Cadillac's wraparound screens foreshadowed 1961. The Eldorado Broughams were bodied in Italy by Pinin Farina on Cadillac's standard 130 inch wheelbase chassis equipped with 345hp 390 cubic inch triple carburetor engines shipped from the U.S., then returned to Cadillac for completion at Fleetwood to customers' orders. The Eldorado Brougham's price of $13,074 FOB Detroit over a thousand dollars more than the median single family house value in the U.S. It's not surprising, then, that only 99 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Broughams were built, followed by 101 in 1960 when the model was dropped from Cadillac's catalog. Much more rare than the 57 or 58. In addition to being loaded with every available option and accessory in Cadillac's extensive catalog the Eldorado Brougham had rear door quarter windows that automatically retracted when the door latch was operated. It facilitated entry and exit, but even today startles those who aren't prepared for it. Current NADA shows the value of this car at --low-$80K, average $112K and High $$180k--so you decide??

This peculiar brougham (body # 30) has had everything done--nut and bolt (Frame Off) as far as I can tell, by the previous owner probably about 10 years ago--The underside speaks to the detail of the restoration--as the body floor is properly prime coated and everything in order--as original! Looks like no expense was spared, this restoration in today's world would easily be over $100K--All the windows for example were disassembled and all frames rechromed--example as the hard stuff to do--Dash top replaced --It still rides on original air suspension and after sitting for awhile it will settle down--Purchased Main valve rebuild kit to be done--otherwise it pumps right up after a short idle. Everything works but the new gas gage always reads full--mechanic trying to sort that out. AC engages and works but needs recharging. Chrome very nice-- Always starts right up and runs and shifts perfectly--looks like only 495 miles since restoration--
