    It's #86 of 101 built, Made In Italy by Pininfarina, it cost a whopping $13,000 when new, the equivalent of $100,000 in today's money.

    Looks like someone put the front clip of a '60 on a '61 or '62 body.

    It's the only one I've ever seen in real life, they are way way scarcer than the 57-58 Eldorado Broughams.
    It's got a tri power, air suspension, not the original but Accuair and power everything, there were no options available.

    The body was entirely hand beaten out of steel by Pininfarina in Italy, no body panels interchange with a stock 1960 Caddy, I don't know if the fenders are longer or not.

    Here's a link.

    What a car! You got such cool caddies...
     
  20. Hey Bro', she is very elegant!! Shame about the window.:(
    Can't wait to see her in the flesh. Hope I can help work some magic, like the ragtop. :):cool:
    ...just a random thought...As with my Starfire and your '61, it would be awesome if these cars could talk. Who have they chaufered around and what black tie events have they driven to?? Back in the day, someone very special , ordered and owned these beauties and for awhile they led a life of glamour. :confused:

    Here's how she looks laid out, pretty nice, I need to get a handheld bag controller, it has them in the trunk. I have not driven her yet, the battery was dead because the trunk draw down isn't working and it's draining it. I'll take her around the block after work.
