Barrett-Jackson Countdown: 1951 Cadillac Custom

This is the 17th vehicle in the 30-day Countdown to Barrett-Jackson’s 47th annual Scottsdale auction.

Hand-built by famous custom car builder John Gimelli, this multi-year build is known as “The Golden Dream.” This 1951 Cadillac Custom was an over-the-top, no-expense-spared vehicle. The car is a stunning gold, with black leather seats and the same gold in the interior. Barrett-Jackson Countdown: 1951 Cadillac Custom | ClassicCars.com
