Glen Campbell's 1974 Cadillac Eldorado Station Wagon
Posted: Thu Jan 16, 2020 9:36 am
Glen Campbell is said to have received this car from Barris Kustom Industries in North Hollywood. It's "Persian Green" and was featured on the 1973 or 1974 edition of Motor Track magazine along with Evil Knievils Cadillac pick up truck. It was built specifically for Glen Campbell and was one of 7 built. There are no pictures available of the car with Glen. It has been sold and reconditioned several times and each time has been linked to Glen.

Glen, in a 2007 interview, shares a story about his 1942 Mercury and his trip out to California.

At one time, Glen owned this beautiful car. It was used in a photoshoot with Glen and Bobbie Gentry.
In 1969 the car was sold to basketball great, Nate Thurmond. It is currently for sale.

Now, this may have been Glen's car! From all the car pictures we see Glen in, in the late 50's...this is one he may have been able to afford. Many thanks to the folks at the Antique Automobile Club of America for helping me ID it.

Glen Campbell and a 1954 Ford Crestline

I would love to know more about this picture. Maybe it was taken out by Sandia Mountain? Who was Glen with? The car is as interesting. The Ford Crestline was only made for 3 years. It was the most expensive Ford you could buy from '52-'54.

Glen Campbell as he smiles and leans against his car, a 1956 Ford Tbird, in 1978. Sorry about the size.

Glen and Debby Campbell with a 1957 Mercury Montclair

This picture was taken in Albuquerque. I have been to its location. Debby was born in 1956, so if this was Glen's car, it would have been close to new when this picture was taken.

Glen Campbell and a 1942 Mercury

This is another early picture of Glen with a Mercury. This is 1942 Mercury. I am assuming Glen is 17 in this picture, give or take a year. I also believe this was taken in New Mexico.

Glen Campbell and a 1953 Mercury Monterey

I found this picture of Glen and the caption reads that he is 16 years old and this is his first car. Glen was born in 36, so he would have been 16 in 1952. To the best of my recollection, the big three always released the new models in the fall. So....Glen could be 16 and stand in front of a 53 Merc. I doubt very seriously it was his first car. I would believe the 1942 Mercury would have been Glen's car at 16.
