General Information: The '53 Cadillac Convertible
was 3rd of 4 limited edition cars in Daum's convertible series.
Originally meant to be a limited edition run of 2500 pieces, Daum
never produced close to this number of cars. This car originally
came with a Certificate of Authenticity which was hand numbered
to match the serial number of the car, and a metal nameplate with
the car's name silkscreened on it. The original box label was also
hand numbered to match the car's serial number. This car was designed
by Xavier Froissart. I have now verified the actual edition size
of the '53 Cadillac Convertible, with some help from people in high
places! Only 193 Cadillac Convertibles were actually produced and
sold by Daum, making this car a lot rarer than originally thought.
I have been fortunate to also acquire S/N "EA 1" of the
'53 Cadillac to add to my collection. This very unique piece, which
is not otherwise serialized, was according to Xavier Froissart the
first piece off the production line, and should be considered to
be S/N 0/2500. This piece is also personally signed by Xavier Froissart,
and comes with a custom made, one of a kind name plate, and custom
made shoebox style box with black foam interior, similiar to the
DB5 or MKII. See pictures below. Note: The EA 1 Cadillac is the
only Cadillac to be signed "Daum France" on the bottom
of the car, rather than on the side rocker panel below the door.
