The 80's one is my favorite! I hate the E&G Grille on the first one though, that's gotta go....

I think they came on the cars from the company that built them to make them seem more authentic, I can't remember the name of the company though.

I like that brown one (what a surprise), but a red interior? Yuck. That interior should be briar brown or maybe even saddle.

I knew the white one was real, But I wasin't sure about the tan one, the top looked more custom, maby it was just the '90 kit that threw me. I got the pics from layitlow.com caaaaddyfest, so there was no info with them.

Hess & Eisenhardt of Cincinatti, Ohio.
The reason some are quite different is because to be ordered CORRECTLY, there was a guideline on HOW TO ORDER a unit for the conversion. SOME dealers followed it to the letter. Others didn't care and pulled cars from stock and shipped them there. Correctly ordered cars were drop shipped from Cadillac TO H & E and then shipped to the ordering dealer.
2-Tone was forbidden, standard full wheel discs were likewise as well as cloth interior, vinyl top and rear window defroster. (DUH) !! !! All factory paint colors were a "go" as well all color interiors. Illuminated Visor Vanity Mirrors were a no go the first year or two. They were EXPENSIVE !!
Somewhere I have the total production # ~ from memory I think it's 400.

Ya, that was a typo! Shoulda said '55 & up !

That 2-tone brown Le Cabriolet I don't think is 2-tone brown. I do believe that it's black and pewter with claret interior.
Yes, I checked. No year-by-year breakdown, but a total # of 407 !!

Any idea how many '79 Phaetons were made? even better, how many Western saddle Firemist ones were made. Or how many '83 Coupe Devilles with a saddle interior? that would probably be hard to track down though..

Color usage per model in my library of vast plains of Cadillac & Imperial gOOdies, begins with model year 1985. Sorry. Production #s per model begin with Day 1 of Cadillac production and 1955 model year of Imperial production.
