As you know, my friend down in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Jayson Coombes, attends many, many car shows around those environs. Several posts I’ve written on this fine site have come from his camera.
It helps that we like the same kinds of vintage rolling stock! Namely, 1930s-1990s big American cars. So today, here’s a nice example of 1957 Cadillac he spotted last month. For further reading, you may want to check out my post on a 1957 Coupe de Ville. Which, coincidentally, was also photographed by Jayson!
Today’s example is one of 32,342 Series 62 four-door hardtops. Base price was $4,713.
The next level up was the Sedan de Ville four-door hardtop, with a more glitzy interior and a $5,188 sticker.
Top of the heap was the all-new Eldorado Brougham sedan with center-opening doors and a heart-stopping $13,074 sticker. 400 of those were built. My friend in Chicago, Ron Schweitzer, owns one.
Which reminds me, I need to write up his car too. It’s overdue! Fortunately I’ll be seeing him this Saturday at the Shirey Cadillac All-GM car show.
But really, any 1957 Cadillac was a fine car.
Even the Series 62 was undeniably a Cadillac from any angle, with fins, chrome, a smooth ride, powerful V8, and plush interiors.
Most ’57 Cadillacs featured a double shark fin hood ornament-or is it ornaments?
V is for V8.
That’s all for now folks. Keep calm and Brougham on.
