While the Lincoln was conservative, the Cadillac was over-the-top with its first-ever quad headlights, signature stainless steel roof cap, rear-opening suicide doors, and Jet Age air suspension. 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; 99 for 1959; and 101 in 1960 when the model was discontinued.
This highly original example of Cadillac’s finest for 1957 has just over 30,000 actual miles. It is a past AACA winner gathering its First Junior Award in 1994; Senior Award and First Preservation in 1995; and repeat Preservation Awards in both 1996 and 2000. Finished in Alpine White with its original blue interior and distinctive stainless steel roof cap, it benefits from a recent mechanical service, including a new fuel tank and battery, along with a cosmetic freshening where needed. The elusive and coveted signature vanity set is included with this top-of-the-line Cadillac as well.
Please note that this car's vanity set is complete but contains some reproduction pieces. Further, the car has been upgraded with conventional coil spring suspension. Please contact an RM Sotheby's representative for further information.
