1959 Cadillac Eldorado - 21108 / 75828 MOD

Recommended Posts

This model was heavily inspired by the 2014 original eight-studs wide Ghostbusters Ecto-1 (set 21108) and a MOD of that set I found on Rebrickable. Instead of a late-50's Cadillac Miller-Meteor ambulance, it's now based on the (very similar) '59 Cadillac Eldorado.

In the changeover, I added a hardtop (removable) roof, different mirrors, 1/2-stud offset side-by-side seating for two, and opening doors. I also changed around the wheels to be less stressful to assemble compared to the original 2014 set.

Rear view, with driver's side door opened up. The opening doors were taken from the Ecto-1 and 2 (set 75828) from 2016.

The roof is only connected by two studs, making it easily removable. The car seats two figures easily.

I plan on getting one of these in real life in a different color sometime in the near future, probably soon after Emmet's house parts arrive from Bricklink.

Got any thoughts comments, or questions? Leave 'em below!

Could you theoretically retool this into a '59 coup de ville? And from that the gigahorse from Mad Max: Fury Road?

I guess so? I don't really have a need for either of those cars... I can upload the LDD file someplace if you want it so you can mess with it.
I will admit the color has been changed to black instead of blue, because that's the color I have the most of...
