1959 Cadillac Eldorado - 1:18 Collectable Diecast Model
The Pink Cadillac - led the way for luxury found in most of today's cars
The Eldorado was a luxury car manufactured and marketed by Cadillac from 1953 to 2002 over ten generations. This 1959 model is remembered for its huge sharp tailfins with dual bullet tail lights, two distinctive rooflines and roof pillar configurations, new jewel-like grille patterns and matching deck lid beauty panels.
These huge cars all shared the same 130 in (3,302 mm) wheelbase. Engine output was an even 345 hp (257 kW) from the 390 cu in (6.4 L) engine.
Innovations included a "scientifically engineered" drainage system and new shock absorbers. Other standard equipment included power brakes, power steering, automatic transmission, back-up lamps, windshield wipers, two-speed wipers, wheel discs, outside rearview mirror, vanity mirror, oil filter, power windows, six way power seats, heater, fog lamps, remote control deck lid, radio and antenna with rear speaker, power vent windows, air suspension, electric door locks and license frames. The Eldorado Brougham also came with air conditioning, automatic headlight dimmer, acruise control standard over the Seville and Biarritz trim lines - setting the standard for many features found on most cars today.
