This is a 1:18 scale die-cast model of a 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham. The 1957 Eldorado Brougham was designed to compete with the Lincoln-Continental Mark II. Announced in December, 1956 and released around March, 1957, the Eldorado Brougham was a hand-built, limited-edition four-door hardtop sedan. Designed by Ed Glowacke, the Brougham featured America's first completely pillariess four-door body styling. The ventipanes were electrically controlled. The Brougham was further distinguished by a brushed stainless steel roof, the first appearance of quad headlights and totally unique trim. The exterior ornamentation included wide, ribbed lower rear quarter beauty panels (extending along the full rocker sills) and a rectangularly sculptured side body "cove" highlighted with five horizontal windsplits on the rear doors. Tail styling treatments followed the Eldorado theme and "suicide" type hanging was used for the rear doors.
