Jet-Age getaway cars

One of the rarest station wagons in the Jet-Age Station Wagons class was 1959 Cadillac collector Robert Waldock’s Broadmoor Skyview station wagon. Just six were built to escort Broadmoor Hotel guests up Pike’s Peak. The wagons were built on Cadillac’s commercial chassis by Superior Coach, a company best known for building hearses and ambulances. As tall as the fins appear, they’re actually about 1 inch shorter than fins on a standard ’59 Cadillac.
