The Golden Fail

What is thought to be Liberace’s Fleetwood Cadillac has failed to sell at auction after huge coverage on the vehicle. The 1931 Fleetwood has been adorned in 24ct gold-leaf with contrasting white upholstery, to which the car has been sitting in a German museum for the past 12 years, being stated to be Liberace’s car. Baron’s auction house have stated that whilst the car is not 100% great in condition, it has lived well considering it’s age and the way the car has been done.

The gold-leaf has held up very well and is still visible on the inner-door handles and also the wiper arms (the more commonly “wear and tear” areas), also the precious stones that where embedded to different parts of the car still remain intact however a ruby has gone missing from the mascot. The opening bid for the Cadillac was at £85,00 but Baron’s auction house thought it could rise over the £100,00 mark. Would you own a Golden Cadillac or know anyone who would?
