The Spectacular Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz

In the two years since the Eldorado was first introduced by Cadillac, it has won itself a unique place in the hearts of motorist everywhere. Though the Eldorado name originally designated only the convertible model, it will include for 1956 both an open and closed car. The first of these- the spectacular Biarritz- is a true achievement in advanced design and engineering. Its high-sweeping fender lines... its beautiful grille and rear bumper assembly ... its unique "disappearing top" ... its special "Sabre - Spoke" wheels ... its special hood ornament ... its chrome ribbed saddle molding ... and it's many special color options ... give it a beauty all its own. To add still greater glamour, the Biarritz is available with gold wheels and a gold grille. And the Biarritz is powered by a special 305- h.p. Cadillac engine, and offers Cadillac's most advanced features of engineering throughout. In every way, it is a true masterpiece of Cadillac craftsmanship.

New One added from the West Coast!

Hi All,

Body #1108 is now part of the roster.  Our current count of survivors is now at 185 cars worldwide. Checkout the statistics page for the breakdown. Body #1108 gives us our second set of sisters if you will. Body #1109 is also on the roster, has been for a long time. The interesting part is both are Bahama Blue and both are in Oregon! What's the odds of that happening?? 

See more of Body #1108 on the Bahama blue page.

We also have an update on body #282. This factory air conditioned car was sold and is now part of a private collection in Wisconsin. 

News on Body #1128. This rusty old girl was sold to a gentleman in Florida and is now for sale again. This time offered with a 56 Seville for $25k on Craigslist. Here's to hoping this car finds a new owner willing to take on this monumental task. 

And last but not least....... here is a great old picture of boxing great Floyd Patterson on May 12th 1956 with his 1956 Eldorado complete with vanity plates. 

As always, click on the pictures to enlarge and go to the appropriate Biarritz roster page for more info and pictures on all the cars mentioned above.
