Jean Patchett in dress by Hattie Carnegie designed expressly for Cadillac Convertible, Vogue, May 1, 1954

“El Dorado, the mythical city of gold, lent its name to perhaps the most luxurious, beautiful, and expensive of all Cadillacs. Changed from two words to one by GM marketers, the Eldorado convertible was a cost-no-object for celebrities and wealthy businessmen who wanted the very best of everything. Proof was the $7,000+ price tag that the Cadillac Eldorado wore… in 1954. Meant only for the elite, only 2150 were produced in ‘54. Understand that in the 50s, when Cadillac was still the undisputed Standard of The World, owning one meant that you were positively at the top of your game. I suppose that sentiment still holds true because this stunning Series 62 Eldorado is for the well-versed connoisseur who enjoys quality, value, and prestige above all. As an official member of the rare 2,150 cars assembled during the second year of Cadillac’s most storied nameplate, this pristine drop-top is an investment grade example of one of the rarest and most desirable collector cars ever produced. If you fancy the ultimate classic to park at shows and parade down Main Street, this professionally restored masterpiece will bring your dreams to life!
