1953 ELDORADO #145 alpine white
« on: January 08, 2018, 10:25:56 PM »
1953 ELDORADO #145 will be offered at Barrett Jackson SATURDAY January 20th, prime time. It will be offered as part (offered separately) of a rare, complete 1953 Motorama collection.

This is a nicely maintained survivor with a mix of original amongst restoration. Never off frame, maintains all of its 1953 undercoating. Not peeling or blistering, Zero floor rust or prior repair. Frame stencil from AO Smith still on frame, original fuel tank. Hydromatic transmission.

While I do not know itís origin, there is no detailed mention in the 53 Eldo registry? itís rust free condition suggests a magority of desert  climate moreover the original chrome die cast has nary any pitting.

Drives super nice, solid and good manners. Continental kit.

Refer to Barrett Jackson Scottsdale 2018 website for added images. The air cleaner was inadvertently left off in those images...it is included.
