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.

South American Treasures

Hi All,

We have 3 new cars to add to the roster in this update. All three are from South America!  
Two are from Brazil and one from Venezuela. 


Click on all pictures to enlarge.

      Brazil now has 5 Eldorado Biarritzes on the roster. The fascinating part is all five cars were restored by the same restoration company in Brazil called Phoenix Studio This shop specializes in American Classics especially Cadillacs. The owner shared many pictures with me for the roster. Thanks Marcus!

The first new Brazilian addition to the roster is this very nice Chantilly Marroon example. See more pics of this car at the bottom of the Chantilly Maroon page.

Not to be out done is this Beautiful Emerald Green Biarritz also from Brazil. See more pics of this car at the bottom of the Emerald Green page.

This Alpine White example from Venezuela is our third new car to the roster for this update. Notice the '55 Eldorado script on the trunk. See more pics of this car at the bottom of the Alpine White page.

Check out this great video of body #1762 put together by Griot's Garage. Congrats to the owner Tom and his son Mike. Both have been great supporters of this roster.

They say pictures are worth 1000 words. 
Perhaps this one only needs two, 
First Class! 


Hopefully the Solid Gold Cadillac story will be ready for the next update. Stay tuned and thanks for all of the contributions and support!
