There is no VIN per say. Back then they used Engine serial numbers. This number was stamped on the block and chassis. Here you go,

Thank you , South Paw ,

That was so fast , love this site !

I'm embarking on an exciting venture for an old friend . A man of means , he started a restoration project over twenty years ago . Living in MA and having this car restored in CA just didn't work out and after disassembly , quality paint job and complete engine rebuild the restore came to an abrupt halt . It has been in dry secure storage in So . CA since 1992 and working as his friend and agent will offer it for sale in the next week or two .
The usual issues have to be sorted out (where the heck is that title , clean-up , and inventory of parts ) and then off to the highest bidder .
Although many thousands were spent to this point and storage also amounts to nearly $40,000 for 18 years , reality prevails and someone is going to make out very , very well .
I would encourage anyone interested in these particular automobiles to contact me in advance and I will work with you directly .
It will be offred to the public as soon as the above mentioned details are worked out .
Thank you ,

Carl A . Chiaretto carlchiaretto@msn.com

I have heard that the serial # was also stamped backwards on the inside of the frame and could only be read by placing a mirror thru a hole in the frame. (late 50's, early 60's.)

The Eldorado Brougham is the high end 4-door hardtop.

South Paw,

Any chance of posting a pic of Fig. 1-2 that shows the location of the Body Name Plate?
The body number is how folks ID and track these Eldo Broughams.

Thanks,
TG

Think 3/4 size replica of a 58 Cad with a stainless steel roof.
