Cadillac Eldorado
America on the Move Series

Five classic cars of the “Fabulous Fifties” flaunt their stylish fins and gleaming chrome on 42¢ First Class stamps in the second issue of the America on the Move series.  Each stamp was created from original art by renowned automotive illustrator Art M. Fitzpatrick, and features a classic 1950s car still on the road today.

As peace and prosperity followed World War II, Americans demanded their automobiles reflect their new wealth.  Chrysler responded in 1957 with their high-performance, luxury 300C.  Available as a hardtop or convertible, it featured space-age fins, a toothy grill, and a powerful Hemi® engine. 

Lincoln’s 1957 Premiere was marketed for elite drivers with high expectations.  Inspired by the Futura Concept car, its futuristic details included a wraparound windshield and large tail fins. 

Pontiac’s sporty 1957 Safari station wagon featured modern “Star Flight” styling and rear tail fins. 

Studebaker’s 1957 Golden Hawk, a combination family sedan and sports car, was one of the faster automobiles of that time.  It could go from 0 to 60 mph in 7.8 seconds, and achieve speeds of 125 mph or more. 

Always a leader in the luxury car field, Cadillac’s extravagantly styled 1959 Eldorado sported the world’s most impressive tail fins, plus power windows, seats, brakes, and steering.

Flamboyant tail fins and shiny chrome accents were hallmarks of the 1950s cars that heralded the dawn of the space age in America.
