Danbury Mint 1959 Cadillac Coupe de Ville
Danbury made a companion piece to the Biarritz in Persian Sand--a Seville, appropriately enough, in black. However, I wanted at least one example of this body style without the extra chrome surrounding the curve of the rear fender, and instead carrying a single chrome strip starting just behind the front wheel well, and extending all the way to the back bumper. When DM introduced this Coupe De Ville in Dover White over Vegas Turqoise, I knew it was the one. Aside from the great color, this car's most remarkable feature is the interior, with realistic seat "fabric" patterns and other minute details that are truly astounding.
