Cadillac’s 1959 model lineup included an all-new, second-generation Eldorado Brougham. But this Brougham did not come from the Fleetwood plant in Detriot. It was hand-built 4,000 miles away in Turin, Italy by Pinin Farina. Pre-Tested Cadillac chassis were crated and shipped to Italy by boat. Completed cars were shipped back to Detroit for final finishing, testing, and shipment to dealers.

“The 1959 Eldorado Brougham is unique among motor cars. Custom-designed and custom-built, it is dramatically and classically beautiful. Every advanced feature of comfort, convenience, luxury and performance known to automotive science is utilized to make the Cadillac Eldorado Brougham the source of utmost pride and pleasure. Cadillac Air Conditioning, Cruise Control and Automatic Headlamp Control are included as standard equipment among its many special features. Interiors are styled and fashioned in a great variety of elegant selections of the world’s choicest leathers and fabrics. Consult with your authorized Cadillac dealer for details on this limited production motor car” – 1959 Cadillac Dealer Brochure

This partnership with Italian coach builder was the first of a number of times that Cadillac would put an Italian body on an American chassis and powertrain.
