For those of you with a family that absolutely must travel in style, look no further! This custom coach built 1956 Cadillac station wagon is at your beck and call. Constructed by Hess and Eisenhardt as Broadmoor Hotel cruisers, these custom built Caddies are quite rare. Only six were built in 1955 and another two in 1956. We featured another one last year and it looks like the seller has had a few so we are guessing that most of them have survived. This exclusive and unique machine has 5 days remaining and bidding has already risen to $45,525 with the reserve not met! Find it here on ebay out of Perris, California.
Of the two Broadmoor wagons built in 1956, this one appears to either be a survivor, or a very old restoration. The interior has a very original appearance, as there is some evidence of aging. Within this massive interior lies a four rows of seating and some very cool Plexiglas roof panels. Can you imagine getting picked up in this beautiful Cadillac to be taken to your hotel? You could push me over with a feather if that happened. With 4 rows of seating, you could easily take your family, and a friend’s family to the next big car event. Clearly having been stored for some time, there is a layer of dust within the interior, otherwise this interior is in nice condition.
The styling on these Hess and Eisenhardt Caddies is wonderful. There is custom badging, as well as a dual exhaust that is fed through the bumpers. Thankfully this one is complete and in fair condition with only a few condition concerns. Looking over the paint reveals a very old paint job that has become thin and worn on the hood, and has some mild chipping concerns on the roof. Although most of the paint is present, it has taken on a matte finish. Overall the body work appears straight, but the passenger rear quarter has a few minor waves in it, and there is strong wave or dent at the edge of the door opening. At car events, this damage may go unnoticed as it is not immediately apparent. This massive wagon is a driver, so all of the mechanicals are in order. With an awesome history, I only wish I could have lived in a time where I could have been motored up to the Broadmoor Hotel in this beautiful Cadillac. What do you think this rare Cadillac will sell for?
