I recently uncovered this car on a road trip and the owner is interested in selling it. The pictures here are the best I could get considering the fact that this garage was somewhat crowded, but I did give the car a very thorough inspection and uncovered some information with the help of some very helpful members of the CLC.

The car is located in Wyoming and has a clear title. It was bought a few years back from an auction and has been in dry storage since then (dry, just very dusty storage I should say)

This car is body number 46 of a total of 99 made by Pininfarina in 1959, the mileage is 78,095 miles and the style number is 6929. Engine number is listed as 59 po 11672 which corresponds with all paperwork.

This car was restored by Ed Pentesco of Ontario Canada in 1999 and was sold again in 2000 to a buyer in California. Pictures are included below.

The asking price of this car is $40,000. You may contact me at incode64@yahoo.com if you are interested and I will put you in direct contact with the seller at that time.

Nice car. Wish I had $50k lying around to spend on it ( or the $75-80k it'd take to do it justice).

What a great car - think that I'll buy a lottery ticket this week.  Azn   Hopefully (and it appears that) the quality & workmanship of the restoration is commensurate with the uniqueness of the vehicle.  Noticeably missing is the tripower air cleaner; not irreplaceable but pricey $$$. 

The 59 and 60 Broughams are pretty unique - you just don't see them at shows very often.  In 25+ years of actively attending car shows, GNs, etc I only recall seeing a few 59 Broughams.  I'm more familiar with the 60 Brougham as a friend owned one for many years.   

Probably about the only 59 more rare would be the Broadmoor or Flower Car.

I guess I was expecting to see the typical bullet tail lights of the 59. This model is new to me.

It's the only proper 59 model ever made.  Shows at least someone at GM had some taste.

There is another one at Kanter Auto products, in Boonton, NJ. Back in the early '90s, I went to "Lead East" '50scar show in Parsippany. I did a stopover at Kanter, and the owner gave me and some friends a tour of the warehouse.  Shocked Shocked What an impressive collection!! Of course, there were many Packards, the Cadillac mentioned in his post, and even a 1958 Chrysler Dual Ghia!! I only took a few pics. Sad I wish I took more!

You know after looking at this one again I have to say that I'm torn.  57 Biarritz or 59 Brougham.  Both beautiful but if I owned a 59 I'd be just like every other Joe Blow in wanting a 59.  Shame they had to make such a beautiful car with such ugly sisters.

Wow.  I've never seen one of those.  That's pretty cool.

I can understand why.   No really nice fins.

And, everyone wants the cars that were made by Cadillac, and not some Italian designer.

Now, if they installed the basic Cadillac '59 Fins on them, then they would have been better accepted as a "Top-of-the-range" 59, and not a "Custom-bodied" '59, that actually looked more like a '60.

PS.   I realise that the Allante owners won't agree with my "Italian Designer" reference, but the Allante is in a different area, a sports car, and Italians are good at making Sports Cars.

I like the '57 better. Not that I'll ever own either.
