Hey guys!
Here is the '53 Eldo that I used to have. I completely restored it. It was in really rough shape and actually had sat in a junkyard for 20 years before!

All factory... These cars were hand built at the factory. They only made 532 of them in 1953.

I had it from 1998-2001. I sold it April 2001. It now resides in a private museum in Greenwich, CT.:D

When I was a kid my dad had a '54...he got rid of it in '64 and got a new one but I've always thought of that body style as the most perfect example of Cadillac style! He'd get a new one every ten years except his last one he bought that in '76 and drove it till he couldn't drive anymore. Then it sat in his garage under a car cover till he passed away in '94. The man LOVED his Cadillacs!

'54 was a neat year for the Eldo as well, with it's Stainless Steel floormats and stainless steel that went all the way down the rear fender. I had one at one time as well.:)
