Recommended Posts

Close inspection shows this isn’t an ordinary 1965 Cadillac Fleetwood Eldorado convertible. Note the flush-fitting convertible top lid in the down position, wire wheels and 1966-style cornering lamps, all features not found on production 1965 Eldorados.

The restrained elegance of the slab-sided Lincolns was a styling sensation and carried Lincoln production through significant production gains throughout the 1960s.

As a result of Lincoln’s styling challenge, Cadillac released a clean, slab-sided car of its own in 1965 that elegantly retained traditional Cadillac features.
