Am I the only one who has never seen this before?? Cadillac's answer to El Camino?

I saw that on a History Channel special on Cadillac a while back.

i think it looks totally cool, but i like el caminos too. you'd really have to be in the market for one for $18k tho...

not sure if i buy that "not an aftermarket conversion" bull, but it is neat anyways.
I recall them. He's correct about only being available thru authorized Cadillac dealers, but it is AFTERMARKET. The link is that the car went FROM Cadillac directly to the convertor. She arrived at the dealer on the delivery truck from Cadillac looking like what you see here.

:coolgleam Back in the 70's someone in my town had one. They lived right by the high school and I'd walk past it every day. Definitely aftermarket but the one I saw looked very well made. I've never seen one but I've heard about Caddys back then being converted into station wagons too, using full-size GM wagon parts.

The worst converted Cadillac I've ever seen was a 93-96 Fleetwood taxi cab station wagon alllllllllllllllllll yellow. :helpless:

I worked at Saurhoff Cadillac in the mid-seventies and saw a couple of these. They were indeed aftermarket and based on the hearse platform. These were also available on the Eldorado platform from another convertor! Those were dubbed "Cowboy Cadillacs" by one magazine in the day. :coolgleam

I've seen a later 70's Coupe DeVille converted this way also.

I've seen the station wagons in Auto Trader before. If I had some cash to blow on a new toy, I'd like to have some thing like that.
