Cadillac is a brand known for shaping the automotive auto industry—both mass market and luxury—into what it is today. Several models made major changes along the way thanks to their popularity. Without further ado, here are the top five Cadillac models of all time, presented by us here at Plaza Cadillac.
- 1937 Cadillac Phaeton 5859 – The custom-built Cadillac Phaeton 5859 originally debuted during the Great Depression, putting it out of the price range of most drivers. The car featured a classic style that still resonates today, most recently with a concept car, the Cadillac Ciel, designed just a few years ago. Even more interesting, the car sold for nearly $1 million at auction.
- 1941 Series 62 Convertible – Have you ever wondered what caused convertibles to become so popular? The answer is the Series 62 Convertible, a popular model among starts like Howard Hughes and infamous characters like Al Capone.
- 1959 Eldorado Biarritz – Many cars claim the epic title but the 1959 Eldorado Biarritz became the “new standard of the world in splendor.” Although just 1,320 were made, the Eldorado Biarritz has stood the test of time.
- 1961 Series 67 Park Avenue – Cadillac originally made very large cars and the Series 67 Park Avenue is the perfect example. Today, the car is a centerpiece of car shows around the world, a testament to just how much of a classic it really is.
- 1957 Cadillac DeVille – Celebrities fell in love with the DeVille, with stars like Bruce Springsteen later championing the classic vehicle. The reputation behind the DeVille drove it to popularity, making it the car to own of the 1950s and 1960s.
