Yes, a conversion company/coach builder made these, of various years. Used a lot of Caprice wagon rear parts, I think.
Every once in a blue moon, one will pop up on Ebay.

It looks better than I expected
Can't say I've ever seen a post '77 Cadillac wagon ..........but there were a few companies that did conversions between at least 1954 and the late sixties, early seventies. In the fifties they were quite popular with the Hollywood/Beverly Hills and "new money" types in California and beyond. Interestingly, when I was involved in SCCA racing in tne '60's the roadcar and tow vehicle of choice for many of the drivers were older model Cadillacs. They were cheap and dependable and with the long stroke V8 making tons of torque at low rpm were great for towing and maneuvering a race car trailer. If I remember correctly many of big name drivers of the time drove them as road cars in the States as well.
