The Eldo convertible remained queen of the line at $7401, but the less glittery $5455 Series 62 version was no less arresting. It was certainly more numerous, with a record 11,130 built versus just 1320 ragtop Eldos. Today, all '59 Cadillacs are firmly enshrined as emblems of their era, thanks to those fins -- and the fact that Cadillacs would never look so wild again.
The 1959 Cadillac Series 62 are prized by collectors for their unique styling.
