   Engine 6,390 cc, V8   Top speed 120 mph (193 km/h)
 An in-house competition was held to find a name for the Eldorado, and Mary Ann Zubosky, a secretary, won. She received a $25 “defense bond” as a prize. First launched in 1953, the car’s wraparound windshield and the tailfins of its body, styled by Harley J. Earl  were already American car design staples.

   At nearly 18 ft (5.5 m) long, the Cadillac was huge even at a time when excess was standard. The interior seated five passengers and a driver in comfort, while the cavernous trunk had space for five spare tires.
  Considered garish when it was launched, the 1959 Eldorado marked a pinnacle of design exuberance. The year after its launch, Cadillac trimmed 6 in (15 cm) off the fins of the Eldorado’s replacement model. 
  Designed for easy cruising, this car’s equipment included power brakes and steering, and an automatic gearbox. Passengers could enjoy electric windows, powered seat adjustment, and cushion-soft air suspension.
