Two-door hardtops in 53 were series 62 or the upscale Coupe de Ville,  Eldos were 'verts only.

 

When I was a kid there was this 3/4 size replica with a stainless roof, suicide doors, and dual quads. Sat in a gas station for years but they did not want to sell it. Had a distinctive crack in the vent window that I saw up in Auburn years later. Have always liked Caddies (have a CTS coupe and suspect an XLR is in the future when prices drop.).

From the 1953 Cadillac Salesman data book, leather was available on the Coupe de Ville only not the 62 Series Coupe.  Here is the data sheet on the Coupe de Ville.  It was available in dark brown or dark green only.  Lewis Jenkins would have found a way to make these red.  He loved read leather interiors.
