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.

Videos!

Hi All,

I hope everyone had a great summer! Here are some recent videos of four different 1956 Eldorado Biarritzes that turned up on youtube. Enjoy! 

First up is Body #841 from Peru. This Black custom quad headlight car is rumored to have driven Nixon around during his visit to Peru as VP.

Next we have Body #632. Freshly restored and having fun around town.

Another custom quad headlight video! This video turned up along with the ebay auction for this custom quad headlight auction. Nice car without the prototype claim.  Click here to see what this car has in common with a 1958 Rambler.

This Bahama Blue Biarritz video was taken at a show in California, May 2012. The video starts off with a 1953 Eldorado and finishes with this '56 Eldo. 
Stay tuned for updates now that the summer is coming to a close.  Please contact me if anyone has updated vehicle info for this roster. Thanks!
