King Leopold III car accident: On 21 July 1957 the King's 1954 Cadillac cabriolet by Pinin Farina went off the road on "Route SS51", approx. 9 km north of Cortina d'Ampezzo in Italy. Another car driven by Italian racing driver, Giuseppe Farina, nephew of Pinin Farina, was following the Cadillac and came to the rescue of the royal couple. Their car was badly damaged but neither the King nor his 2nd wife, Liliane de Réthy, were hurt. The couple had come to the town to dedicate a bronze bust to the late King Albert I, Leopold's father, who had been a keen mountain climber in the Dolomites. A photo of the overturned Cadillac appeared in the archives of the Antwerp Gazette at the time but the incident was not broadcast in the press (perhaps because of an earlier, fatal car crash on August 25, 1935, in which Leopold’s first wife, Queen Astrid, lost her life.) Who can tell me more about the incident and about the special Cadillac the King was driving on that fateful day? Does anyone know where and when had he acquired the car. What happened to it?
