Cadillac 1946-1960

Lots of stock and lots of buyer activity is encouraging people wanting to sell Cadillacs to boost their asking prices in line with hefty values being achieved in overseas markets.

Caddy convertibles of all kinds and ages are doing sizzling business and asking $200,000 for exceptional cars is realistic.

Sedans and Coupe de Villes from 1957-60 remain the most desirable of fixed-roof 1950s models, yet in a market that loves Fifties Caddies, $60,000 is seen as decent value for a 1959 Coupe.

Cars from the early 1950s look cumbersome when parked alongside a sleek later version and in some respects they are mechanical dinosaurs. However, they have presence and that continues to justify strong prices.

Sedan/Coupe 1950-56 $43,330 [15] 

Sedan/Coupe 1957-58 $40,655 [13]

Convertible 1950-58 $162,875 [4] 

Sedan/Coupe 1959-60 $55,630 [23]

Convertible 1959-60 $141,635 [3]
