Somewhere, packed away in my car files I have an original 8x10 color transparency of that same photo.
It was part of the 1964 Press Kit that went to magazine journalists (not a lot of those, back in '64) for publication. Judging by the size and quality of the film, it looks like an original, taken by a large-format view camera.
Back in the '90s, I had an enlargement made and hung it on my Motor Trend office wall.
If I run across it, I'll definitely post it. Yes, the car is Firemist Saddle.
This picture is 12" x 18' on an odd all black paper. There was no writing on it and not sure how it was taken or printed but definitely not your stock photo paper, more like a film paper ... but not a transparency of course. It is now in a frame.
I also have another promo picture that looks like the same car and taken at the same time but it is a smaller 4 1/2" x 9 1/2" size, and at more of an overhead angled shot. It is also has some "For Release" write-up below the picture and will scan it and the picture soon and share.
the 64 does not have rear fender skirts?
Pretty car and great pictures
Yep. I love the no-skirt look of the '64 Eldo. Really gives a sportier appearance to the car.
I always make the point to anyone who comments on my '64 Eldo that the no-skirt styling was Eldo-only, and 1964-only. I have not met a single person (even other "Cadillac guys") who knew that detail.
Of course, members of this site do, but it's fun trivia to tell to others.
