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.

Fun Facts #5 & Roster Update

Hi All,
Attention owners and enthusiasts, body numbers are needed! Sometimes a great deal of history can be obtained from the tag information. Example; A very special Biarritz was built at the end of May 1956. The body number will be in the 2000 range. If you have a car or know of a car in this range, please contact me. 
The body number is on the body tag and can be found under the hood on the firewall. See example below, 


UPDATES;
We learned of Body #1762 this week. This Bahama blue Eldorado is fully restored with a continental kit. Here's a shot from the rear of the car. See more pics on the Bahama Blue page. 

Yet another factory air conditioned car has been uncovered. This one is in Switzerland. It's body #1606 and is finished in Alpine white. More on this car at the Alpine White page. 

*** Be sure to review each page of the roster from time to time. Many of the cars have new pictures added.  *** 


Fun Facts;

  • We now have 10* confirmed air conditioned cars on the roster. *waiting to confirm an 11th car.
  • 17 cars on the roster are confirmed to have the power trunk option
  • 6 Eldorados are confirmed to have every possible factory option.
