The luxurious Cadillac Eldorado Brougham debuted in 1957 at the New York Automobile Show and was available through the 1960 model year.

The pillarless four-door concept was a favorite of GM stylist, Harley Earl, as was his use of a stainless steel roof. It was a vehicle far ahead of its time with industry firsts that included quad-headlights and an air suspension system that continuously adjusted itself for level and road conditions.

The lavishily equipped Eldorado Brougham had power brakes, steering, windows, radio antenna, and trunk lid. The six-way power front seat moved automatically for convenience of passenger entry and exit, and the driver's seat was equipped with a "favorite position" memory setting. Air conditioning, of course, was standard. Interior items included a front seat cigarette case, tissue dispenser, vanity mirror, vanity compact, lipstick and a set of four magnotized gold-finished drinking cups. A storage compartment in the rear seat armrest contained a note pad and pencil, portable vanity mirror and a perfume atomizer filled with Arpege.

In 1957, the Eldorado Brougham had a list price of $13,074, compared to the lowest-priced Cadillac at $4,677, making the car the most expensive production American car. It even cost more than a new 1957 Rolls-Royce.

A limited production of only 400 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham automobiles were built in 1957, 304 in 1958, 99 in 1959, and 101 in 1960.

For 1958, only slightly modified front and rear ends and altered body trim were changed from the 1957 models.
