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.

Roster Update #14

Hi All,

Three new additions to the roster in this update.

First up is Eldorado from Colorado.  This one, body #1593 was on ebay in Sept. According to the listing, this car was pulled from a shop in pieces after things went wrong. Engine and transmission were rebuilt but as you can see, not much happened with the body. This one left the factory in emerald green with a green and white interior. Obviously, things are different today...
This one sold and is on it's way to Sweden! 
Next is this Mandan red car from Winnipeg. In the hands of the same owner for nearly 28 years. Has some rust issues and needs some mechanical TLC. It's a good start for a restoration. 

 
 and last but not least is this fully restored example. This picture was taken in New Jersey in the early 1990's and comes to us from Eric over at the 1961-62 Cadillac Group. It was sold at auction short after this picture and current whereabouts are unknown. Please contact me if you know of this car!


As always, go to the appropriate color page to learn more about the cars in this update. 

That's all for this update. Thanks for all of the recent contributions! Please keep the info coming!
