Footnotes

  • This unique Cadillac limousine was commissioned by none other than Donald J Trump, billionaire property tycoon turned reality TV star, and now President of the United States. Back in the 1980s, Trump suggested to Cadillac that having his name attached to an exclusive series of special limousines would be a good marketing move. Cadillac agreed and two prototypes were built: one each of the proposed Trump Executive Series and Trump Golden Series, the latter being the car offered here. 'A decision has been made to go into production on two Cadillac-body limousines using my name,' he announced. 'The Trump Golden Series will be the most opulent stretch limousine made.' As its name suggests, the Golden Series reflects Trump's well-known fondness for all things gilded, with this precious metal being represented to excess in the ultra-luxurious interior. Built by Dillinger Coach Works, whose modifications involved raising the roofline, the Trump Cadillacs debuted at the Limousine & Chauffeur Show in Las Vegas in January 1987, and in January 1988 Cadillac and Dillinger presented the Golden Series car to Donald Trump at the Limousine & Chauffeur Show in Atlantic City. The proposed two series never materialised.

    Trump's Golden Series has been owned by the current vendor for the last ten years. Currently MoT'd and said to drive very well, the car is only offered for sale due to a lack of storage space and the vendor's advancing years. A unique opportunity.
