Cadillac 1936-1960 market review 2020

If you feel intimidated by fins and chrome bumpers that weigh more than the average human, don’t look in here. Cadillacs if sold by weight would be some of the most costly US models and you do get a huge quantity of car for your money.

1950s Cadillacs came in three distinct styles and the money being sought for all of them is climbing.

Cars built from 1959-60 are the most plentiful and expensive with some vendors pushing sedan prices towards six figures.

Early-1950s models with Cadillac’s 331 V8 can be found in good condition at around $40,000 but Convertibles from the 1950s have hit $125,000, with the rare Biarritz $100K dearer.

Sedan 1936-49 $75,000 [1]

Sedan/Coupe 1950-56 $42,550 [10]

Sedan/Coupe 1957-58 $71,175 [8]

Sedan/Coupe 1959-60 $70,110 [17]

Convertible 1957-60 $106,175 [6]
