I called the auction folks, and they said they hoped to have results posted by the end of the week.

Judging from the consignment list, Cadillac doesn't appear to have the representation it once had at AC - can't speak for the car corral however. Back when the event was held at the old convention center, the place used to be overflowing with Cadillacs.

Ah, the good old days...

There were quite a few Cadillacs in the auction.  Two of the most outstanding original cars in the regular auction were a 1965 deVille convertible with 34,000 miles, in Samoan Bronze with a russet interior and white convertible top, and a one-owner 1976 Sedan deVille with 40,000 miles in Firethorn with a white vinyl roof, very well equipped.   There were also a 1966 deVille convertible, a number of 1970s Eldorados, and some rear-wheel-drive Broughams from the 80s.

In the Taj Mahal auction, there were a 1931 Fleetwood V-8 convertible coupe (formerly owned by CLC member Chris Cummings), a 1940 V-16 formal sedan, a black 1949 convertible, a white 1953 Eldorado, a white 1954 Eldorado with continental kit, a stunning red '57 or '58 Eldorado Brougham with the stainless steel roof, and a black 1960 Series 62 convertible.

The car corral included an all-original 1962 6-window Sedan deVille with 14,000 miles, an all-original 1969 Coupe deVille with 23,000 miles (a CLC Senior car), two outstanding 1976 Eldorado convertibles (one Firethorn, the other Amberlite Firemist), a Mediterranean Blue 1978 Eldorado Biarritz, a triple-white 1978 Eldorado Biarritz (displaying first-prize awards at the Capitol Cadillac show), a like-new 1986 Eldorado Biarritz, and several very nice Allantes.

I'm sure this list is far from complete; it just gives you a flavor of what was there.

Hello Richard

I am grateful for your effort and time to document and share. Were there any LaSalle automobiles? Thank you.
All good men own a Cadillac but great gentlemen drive a LaSalle. That is the consequence of success.

Richard,

I did notice that the quality of the Cadillacs was better than usual.  It was nice seeing you and visiting with our Cadillac friends.
