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. See Pic below.
