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.

Hi All,

Here's a Biarritz for sale in Slovenia. Looks to be painted in candy apple red and has a few other modifications as well. Currently listed on the Custom-biarritz page. No body tag info was given and my request for it in english went unanswered. I believe German is the native tongue of the seller. Can someone help? Contact info at the link below.. Thanks

Asking price is 175,000 euro. See more pics and info at this link,

This new to the roster mandan red Biarritz is for sale in Norway. Again, no body tag info given and request for the info has gone unanswered. Priced at 299,000kr which is roughly $53,000 USD seems to be reasonably priced base on the pictures.

Here is the link to the ad. Lots of pictures and contact info at the link. http://www.finn.no/finn/car/used/object?finnkode=35567721
