Lot #1258.1 - This rare car is one of 304 Eldorado Broughams sold in 1958. The 4-door with rear hinge doors was a luxury car that cost more than $13,000 new, more than the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud of the same year.

It has had recent cosmetic restoration to the body including a fresh coat of the original Lake Placid Blue paint and new weather stripping. The upholstery has been redone in correct style material as was the trunk lining. The roof is in excellent original condition. Equipped with the rare factory Tri-Power carburation and has an automatic transmission. New wide whitewall Firestone Deluxe Champion Tires, Cigarette and shot glass case in glove compartment. New exhaust, new shocks, rebuilt carbs and Tune-Up.
