This example, the 73rd of the 532 Eldorados built for 1953, was beautifully restored in the late 1990s and has seen just 100 miles since the work was completed. One of the premier show Cadillacs of the last 20 years, the car has always been trailered to events and is a multiple award-winner, including an AACA Senior award in 1996 and a highly coveted AACA Grand National award in 2000.
As a pampered show car, the Eldorado's restoration has been beautifully preserved, and it remains in immaculate condition. The car is stunningly presented in factory-correct Alpine White with a white top and a red interior with white accents. The proper Eldorado trim, filigree work, and the unique-to-1953 clamshell lid for the convertible top are all present. The car is also equipped with the optional wire wheels and dual spotlights, including the highly rare and desirable combination spotlight mirror on the driver's side. With the potent 331-cu. in. V-8 backed by the legendary Hydra-Matic transmission, this car is sure to be a highlight of any Cadillac collection.
