Iconic Hollywood ‘Pink Cadillac’ to go under the hammer

An icon of American automotive history and piece of Hollywood film history is set to go under the hammer with the auction of a 1959 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible, better known as ‘Pink Cadillac’ from the iconic film starring Clint Eastwood and Bernadette Peters.

“This isn’t just a prop car but an official piece of cinematic history and is still fitted with the original camera mounting brackets used during filming and authentic markings of it’s time on set,” said Lloyds Auctions, Chief Operations Officer, Lee Hames.

The classic car last went to auction 10 years ago in 2014 and sold for €62,100, or around $66,200 USD, and this time around is expected to break the six-figure mark.

“Lloyds Auctions are excited to be bringing such an iconic classic car to auction and have already received a large amount of interest from around the world, and whether you’re a classic car enthusiast, cinema buff, or just someone who appreciates cars, you don’t want to miss this,” said Mr Hames.

According to Knight Frank’s Attitudes Survey, the top investments of passion amongst Australian ultra-high-net-worth individuals were classic cars with 61% of people interested, followed by art and wine. Classic car interest has also grown by 38% worldwide.

“As we keep seeing year on year, classic cars around the globe continue to appreciate in value, anything of a limited build, celebrity affiliation, significant history, or chrome bumpers just keeps going up in value and we urge any classic car enthusiast looking for advice to give us a call right now,” said Mr Hames.

The Pink Cadillac will go under the hammer alongside 200 other Australian, European, Japanese, and American classic cars as a part of our UK classic, muscle and prestige cars auction tomorrow (Saturday April 27th) from 7pm AEST and will be LIVE streamed.
