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.

In Memory of Stephen Nadon

If you own a 1956 Eldorado Biarritz, chances are you have been contacted by Stephen and have enjoyed his enthusiastic phone calls and genuine kindness. More than likely you probably learned of this roster from him. He was a great admirer of all of the 50's Eldorado's and he loved this roster. The Cadillac world lost Stephen on May 29th, unexpectedly, he was only 53. Way too soon! I thought it would be appropriate to share a few of Stephens drawings and a picture of him on the roster he helped build and enjoyed so much. 


R.I.P Stephen.
