The early fifties were a time of wonder and excitement in America. The war was won, the GIs had returned home and were starting families and building businesses. The economy was booming and Americans had a seemingly insatiable appetite for all products, especially automobiles.
History would record that these factors would combine to stimulate the most exciting era of automotive excess. At the heart of it all was GM's traveling Motorama, a no-holds-barred display of dazzling technology and stunning styling. At the same time, Cadillac was on a roll - flashy styling and high performance made Cadillac the choice of the most successful of a new generation of buyers. Young and exciting, Cadillac displaced Packard as the leader in the fine car market. New models were eagerly awaited, and 1954 was no exception.
Introduced in 1953 was the now legendary new Eldorado. The 1954 model was improved substantially over the 1953. Brake horsepower was increased to 230 and advertisements boasted smoother performance and quieter operation. The 12 volt system, which was standard by this time, had been improved making way for more power operated creature comforts.
