Description for Cadillac Eldorado 1957

1957 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham Jamaican Green with Vanities #177

I am pleased to offer this very rare 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham. Car is #177 and features code #132 Jamaican green exterior, only 11 Brougham were painted this color in 1957. This car also features a custom 2 tone green painted coves treatment. Interior is trim code 6581 which is medium green leather with white leather and Karakul carpeting (only 6 with that trim code in 1957). This car has only been driven 27,314 miles since new. VIN # is 5770107176.

Some History:

The car was bought from a collector in Arizona who bought it as part of a 3 brougham purchase from Jim Street. He bought the cars back in the early sixties and he did the two tone paint job and then drove them sparingly over the early years and much less in the later ones hence the low miles of 27,314 on the car. He was a well known car customizer back in the day and there are YouTube videos of him highlighting his unique creations.

The collector in AZ wanted to keep only one and sold the other two. The car is largely original with all the vanities except the atomizer. Body has paint from the sixties so it is tough but is solid and rust free. The air suspension is there but needs new bags and most likely some other fixes. The car runs and drives but needs brakes and a fresh gas tank to make it more usable.

Additional Information:

Car still has ORIGINAL air suspension (NOT working). It has been stored for 40 years with a Brougham collection. Car does run off of a gas can and will drive…but gas in tank is bad and fuel pump among other known and unknown issues. Paint has cracks and is peeling. VEHICLE HAS NO functioning BRAKES! Cooling system needs attention, water pump leaks. Original issue OEM GM fan belts were on the car AND SAVED for historical purpose! This Brougham is SOLID and STILL has its ORIGINAL exhaust system to include resonators (VERY RARE) and mufflers, all SOLID! Shocks are the original issue spiral design. VERY nice original windshield!

Carb and air cleaner set up is a single quad setup from a 1959 Cadillac (I believe, not 100% sure). The ’57 dual quad set up with batwing air cleaner are not included.

History of the car is known to be a Dan Howe of Ohio that owned the car in 1964. Then Ted Stapleton of Dayton, Ohio. Original color keyed (green) vanity case is complete and also loaded with 1950’s KENT brand cigarettes with micronite filters! Original white leather beveled mirror, original ARPEGE perfume with box (no atomizer). Original cross mechanical pencil. Clear acrylic shot glass case and cigarette case are high quality BROUGHAM reproductions by Mastermind

All in all, car is very solid and basically original with most vanities. Obviously, it would make a great starting point for a restoration or with some maintenance and repairs, can be a very cool weekend driver. There are flaws as noted above but these are getting more and more tough to find especially with original vanities. Chrome is very good (that’s important), roof is excellent, interior is original and excellent, glass is very good etc. Please plan on inspecting the car to get a full understanding of the condition and functionality.

If you’re tired of the black and white Broughams (as I am), this is a great and unusually colored Brougham. The two tone treatment is not original but you must admit that it looks very cool.
