1953, 1954, 1955 Cadillac Eldorado
In model-based Eldorado 1953, 1954 and 1955 was the show car of 1952, based on the convertible 62 series modified chef dizaynera GM’s legendary Harley Earl. As well as Chevrolet Corvette, 1953 Eldorado was the first of GM’s dream car, created for the exhibition show “engine mount”, which went on sale. Among its features was the “panoramic” windshield, and subsequently appeared on other Cadillac models, plus are stylishly curved waist line and a metal cover covering the folded kabrioletas the top. Being 3 inches lower than its cousin, the 62 series, Eldorado, in the end, had a more squat and long silhouette, while remaining the same in length.
Its interior was decorated with beautiful skin and shining chrome 4 spicemania wheels made final touches to the elegant look of the car. The basic package was included a radio, heater, tires with white sidewalls, power steering and of course automatic transmission Hydro-Matic. If someone before and there were doubts that Cadillac occupies the highest place on the Olympus of the most prestigious cars, the Eldorado has dispelled these doubts completely.
A year later, Cadillac decided that they coped with the task of creating ultra luxury car. Now it is time for a new type of El Dorado. One that could be sold in large quantities and be able to fully recoup its production. As a result of implementation of this idea, Eldorado 1954 model year was a bit different and also sold at different prices. $5738 that was more than $2,000 less than requested for the 53 model year.
In the 1954 model year, the appearance of the Eldorado is more heavy and massive. The new model weighed more than its predecessor by about 140 pounds because of the increased 3 inches wheelbase. Did a massive side view to make the model more beautiful — it remains an open question, but the public adopted the new model as never favorably.
Heart of Eldorado remained a V8 engine capacity of 331 cubic inches, which first appeared on Cadillac in 1949. Despite the fact that the power went up from 210 to 230 HP, the engine has not undergone major changes compared to the previous year. Eldorado still carried the same engine and the same impressive set of standard options as its predecessor, but now it’s body panels were just exactly the same as on the convertible 62 series without modifications, as was the case with the 53 model year. Despite the fact that the model 1954 accurately can be found on ribbed metal panels on the rear fenders and the gold Cadillac emblems on the doors, he was less expressive in comparison with the original 53-year.
With the price of a new model in the firm miscalculated and despite the fact that she was “only” $1300 more than a Cadillac 62 series, Eldorado 1954 model year found 2150 their customers, which was very good considering the shortened model year of this model.
1955 brought more tangible changes for the Eldorado. For the first time, it established its own engine, a forced version Capillaroscope V8. Equipped with two four barrel carburetors, it gave out 270 HP, which was 20 HP more than any other Cadillac. Design has also become more expressive. In particular, on the back of the car now sported a longer, more protruding “shark” wings, plus, this was changed and the interior design. On the toolbar was a special gold emblem, on which were engraved the name of the owner. Wheel arches have become more open and now they showed the new chrome wheels that replaced speculanas. These superb discs are intended only for Eldorado, will be established on the model until the 1958 model year.
