In 1952 and 1953 Cadillac toured 2 prototype cars around the country and it marked the first time the name El Dorado was attached to a potential new model. The second prototype car was named the Townsman. Known together as the Golden Anniversary Cadillacs, they were presented to celebrate the division's 50th anniversary. The "El Dorado" name turned out to be the suggestion of Marketing executive Mary Ann Zukowsky. As an in-house competition to name the ultimate Cadillac, the stated the word originated in the Spanish term for "the golden man" or "the gilded one," embodied in the myth of a Colombian tribal king covered in gold dust; it later also referred to the legendary City of Gold for which various explorers in the 1500s feverishly searched South America. With such historical associations, Cadillac's marketing department judged the name worthy of the new model, which it introduced late in the 1953, as a limited-production convertible. Instincts proved right because despite its lofty $7,750 price tag, the Eldorado attracted 532 buyers, including the support of President Dwight D. Eisenhower who rode to his inauguration ceremony in an Alpine White staff convertible. The entire Cadillac line was redesigned for 1957 and, as before, the Eldorado sported its own special styling that included small fins set into a sloping rear deck above circular tail lights. The Eldorado returned little changed for 1958, when the lineup included the Seville two-door hardtop, the Biarritz convertible and the opulent four-door Brougham hardtop.
