RCC Motors is pleased to offer this stunning 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham. New for 1957, the Cadillac Eldorado Brougham was over-the-top with its first-ever quad headlights, signature stainless steel roof cap, rear-opening suicide doors, and Jet Age air suspension. The first production car to use such a system. Just 400 were built in 1957, selling new for a staggering $13,074. Powered by a 325-hp V-8 with two four-barrel carburetors, the car was laden with high-roller accoutrements like a matched set of tumblers, special lipstick and cologne, and a rear armrest that included a pad, pencil, and mirror. Another 304 were produced for 1958, utilizing three two barrel carburetors now rated at 335 horsepower. The opulent interior was over-the-top. There were air conditioning and all the usual power options, including a six-way power driver’s seat with a “favorite position” memory that moved automatically to facilitate entry and exit. There also were electric door locks and front/rear compartment heating systems with under-seat blowers. A dashboard control raised and lowered the trunk lid electrically. Also, there were an automatic headlight dimmer and polarized sun visors that became darker when tilted.
