Perhaps the most iconic American luxury brand is Cadillac, a division of General Motors. Interestingly, Cadillac is the second-oldest brand in the GM family behind Buick, founded in 1902 by Henry Leland. Leland named the company after Antoine Laumet de La Mothe, sieur de Cadillac (try saying that 3 times fast), who founded Fort Pontchartrain du Détroit, which would later provide the beginnings of the City of Detroit.
Cadillac is now one of the most prestigious and recognized luxury brands in the world. Its reputation was built on such models as the Series 62 Coupe, Sedan, and Convertible. In particular, Cadillac also offered this model with the distinguished de Ville (French for “of the town“) trim that later became a separate model line in its own right in 1959. The de Ville trim package included even more luxury such as power everything, up-rated interior, and enough chrome to please Lil Wayne.
Despite being more expensive, the Sedan de Ville (i.e. town car), Cadillac’s first 4-door hardtop, outsold its pedestrian cousin from the get-go and never looked back. In the roaring post-war 50s, it quickly became THE car to own and drive for the wealthy, well-to-do, or wannabe in-crowd. Here’s a chance to relive the heyday of yesteryear in your very own 1956 Sedan de Ville, prepped and well-maintained in all its lavish and over-the-top Cadillac glory. Clothed in a beautiful baby-blue over black leather interior, you too can feel like a million bucks cruising with old-school distinction. Grab it now at Autobarn Classic Cars for $56,995.
