Car #2 is the THIRD Brougham built [chassis #5770-035764]. It is painted bright primrose yellow, a special color [code #0 on the original body tag] that is not included in either the regular color palette for 1957 nor on the special color palette for the new Brougham models.
 As confirmed by the late Cy Strickler, first President of the Brougham Owners' Association (BOA), the car is used for some time in Cadillac's Engineering Department (possibly as a second test car); it has a fuel injected engine. It is later re-worked, re-painted black, mounted on 1958 chassis #58P-014243 and sold as 1958 Brougham #475. Photos of this car are identified in many specialized auto magazines as a "1958" Cadillac Eldorado Brougham, whereas in FACT it is 1957 car #2].
[Late 70s] Cy Strickler lists the car as belonging to Larry Muckey of Muskegon, MI. At that time, it is reported to be still in fine condition. Larry also owns also car #471 (Larry helped piece together the story of the 1956 Eldorado Brougham town car, special, Motorama model).
[August 2002] Per a message left in the Cadillac Database "Visitors' Book" by enthusiast Glen Durmisevich: "I owned this car from 1978 to 1984. In addition to Cy Strickler's info, Body #2 had a 1958 VIN #58P014243. Door panels were labeled #475 [which fits the 1958 chassis number]. Previous owners include Francis J. Novak, Larry Muckey [noted above], Dr. Rick Zeiger, and myself. The car rode on springs. I sold it in 1984 to Fred Collins in California. I have photos after I painted this car and used it for my wedding."
[February 2010] Glen Durmisevich provides some photos of the car, which he once owned, after the body had been removed at the factory and put on 1958 Brougham chassis #58P014243. Glen points out that the structure in the background is not Meadowbrook Hall, he was told it was more likely the stone-built mansion of one of the Fisher brothers, located in the Sherwood Forest/Palmer Woods Subdivision in Detroit (see first three pictures in the gallery). The B&W photos in the gallery have been widely publicized; the car has often been IDd in error as a 1958 model; in fact it is car #2 of the 1957 production; HOWEVER... in 1958, the body was mounted on 1958 chassis #58P014243, repainted and given a new body tag, #475; this begs the question: how many 1957-58 Brougham bodies were effectively built? 704 or 703? The color photo of this car painted yellow is intriguing; it was featured on the rear cover of a 1957 Cadillac "mailer" brochure entitled, "You and your Cadillac" [the emphasis actually appears on the cover title]. Factory records show that the paint code for this car to be "0" [i.e. special order]; the only 1957-58 Brougham to have been painted a special order color is #2 of the 1957 production run, this car most probably; this photo and the three B&W pictures provided in the gallery are believed to have been taken in front of one of the stone-built mansions belonging to one of the Fisher brothers and located in Detroit's upmarket Sherwood Forest / Palmer Woods subdivision; the photo of the car painted black in the gallery shows the car after it was repainted black and mounted on 1958 Brougham chassis #58P014243 [© and courtesy of Glun Durmisevich, a former owner].
