HISTORY OF THE 1958 CADILLAC: All Cadillacs were heavily facelifted for 1958 based upon the rave reviews of the 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham. Perhaps the most garish Caddys yet, they were laden with chrome. At just over 121,000 units, model year production was lower than at any time since 1954. Symbolizing the forward-thinking of Cadillac was a V-8 slightly detuned in a nod toward fuel economy, limited to a single yet powerful 310-bhp version for all models. The facelift included a new grille featuring multiple round “cleats” at the intersection of horizontal and vertical members. The grille insert was wider and the bumper guards were positioned lower to the parking lamps. New quad (dual) headlamps were seen throughout all lines and small chrome fins decorated front fenders. Tailfins were a bit less pronounced and trim attachments were revised. The word Cadillac appeared, in block letters, on the fins of Series 62 base models. On the sides of the cars there were five longer horizontal windsplits ahead of the unskirted rear wheel housings; front fender horizontal moldings with crests placed above at the trailing edge and no rocker sill trim. The convertible, Coupe DeVille, and Sedan DeVille used solid metal trim on the lower half of the conical projectile flares, while other models had a thin ridge molding in the same location. On 62 Eldorados a V-shaped ornament and model identification script were mounted to the deck lid. The two luxury Cadillacs also had ten vertical chevron slashes ahead of the open rear wheel housings and crest medallions on the flanks of tailfins. Broad, sculptured beauty panels decorated the lower rear quarters on Eldorados and extended around the wheel opening to stretch along the body sills. Standard equipment was the same as the previous year. All-new was an extended deck Series sedan, which was 8.5 inches longer than other base models. In the 1958 year, Cadillac only produced 121,778 cars in total, due to the economy. Of these, a mere 7,825 were Convertible Series 62 cars, making the convertible second only to the Brougham in terms of rarity. Collectibility has become high since the 1958 year was the last of major design elements found in the 50’s, yet the first in terms of modern advances of the early 60’s.
