Cadillac Eldorado 1954
With the loss of its unique sheet metal and sharing its basic body shell with standard Cadillacs the second generation Cadillac Eldorado appeared. As a result, the Eldorado was now distinguished now mainly by trim pieces, allowing GM to lower the price and see a substantial increase in sales. The Eldorados had golden identifying crests centered directly behind the air-slot fenderbreaks and wide fluted beauty panels to decorate the lower rear bodysides.
