1958 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham
Lance Lambert is at the Flying A Garage talking to Aaron Weiss about his
1958 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham. Elvis had a car like this!
Please rate and leave a comment! This video is already about 4 years old
and shows the car before we got finished with the rebuilding, so there are
still the wrong wheels on it and the motor is not exactly right, but now we
got these things already fixed and we'll be making a new video soon, so
watch out for it!

1958 CADILLAC FLEETWOOD SIXTY SPECIAL 2
1958 CADILLAC FLEETWOOD 60 SPECIAL
There was no more eloquent statement of having
arrived in 1958 than pulling up to the country club or bank in a Cadillac
Fleetwood Sixty Special. Redesigned in 1958 with a strikingly handsome
profile accentuated by the lower Stainless Ribbed Panel that began behind
the rear doors and terminating at the "Exhaust ports"; all this below the towering
rocket fins, complemented the overall striking and bold styling of this
Cadillac. Standard equipment included just about everything that would fit
on the car from Cadillac's long list of luxury features and conveniences
including power vent windows and a 6-way power front seat. Only 12,900 were
built, less than half of the production of the Sedan De-Ville and a tenth
of the already low 121,778 Cadillac's produced in 1958. This example has
always lived in the South and was stored in a museum for the last 23 years.
I purchased the car for my collection in 2006 and upon receiving the car
had it thoroughly serviced and detailed, including the restoration of the
original air-ride system. Most of the interior appears to be all original
with beautiful two tone silver material and silver flecked cloth
upholstery, the original molded headliner even the carpets appear original
and are well preserved. In addition to the long list of standard features
on the Fleetwood Sixty-Special it has factory air conditioning, and correct
original working air ride leaving little or nothing for any collector to
desire in the way of equipment or condition. An elegant but also practical
addition to any collection, it is adaptable to long trips, local parades,
weekend trips of out of town, or a quick trip to the bank or the country
club where it will be unlikely to find anything even close to similar in
the parking lot.

. The owner told me the car is mostly original. The following is what he
did to the car:
· New tires
· New battery
· New trunk kit
Once I received the car, I restored the vinyl dashboard, & had the original
air ride professionally restored. I've looked around the car and it does
appear to be a mainly original, with some professionally restored
This is the 3rd '58 I've owned and probably the 100th I've seen and this is
hands down one of the nicest '58's out there. According to the owner of the
museum he is the second owner so this car went from one owner to a museum
to my collection and is now for the
first time available for public purchase and viewing since the museums
closing in the mid 1990's. Car runs and drives as nicely as it looks.
