This luxurious piece of machinery boasted outrageous features for the time, and a restored example has hit eBay for sale. Notably, those who could afford the Eldorado Brougham were treated to air conditioning, separate front and rear heaters, a power front seat, two speaker radio, automatic-latching electric doors, auto headlight dimming and even a power side window.
Such creature comforts made the 1957 Eldorado Brougham a pricey thing when new at $13,074, or roughly $119,000 in 2018 money.
The car for sale recently underwent a rotisserie restoration with a gray exterior and two-tone gray interior. The seller does note the air suspension has been removed and the car now sits on springs. It’s also one of just 400 Broughams built in 1957.
Those looking for an immaculate boulevard cruiser will be faced with a $150,000 asking price, but serious offers will be entertained, per the seller.
