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.

Two More Overseas & One in the Air!

Hi All,

We have two new additions to the roster in this update, 

First up is this Emerald green example located in Sweden. It is body #175, one of the earliest built cars on the roster. The tag confirms that this one left the factory in the color shown. Hopefully this Biarritz will return to it's former glory very soon.

More pics and info about this car can be found on the emerald green page of the roster.

   Our second new car to the roster is this beautiful black Biarritz located in Holland. It's for sale and the owner claims that this one is mostly original with a new paint job.

Sitting high atop a California junk yard for many years is this 1956 Eldorado. A closer look reveals that this is not a Biarritz but a Seville with the roof cut off. 


As you can see in these pictures. This old Cadillac has become a target for gun enthusiasts. It has also turned into quite the home for the local bird population!


  A couple of views from the backside of the car reveal that very little was removed from this car before it became sign art. 


A closer look and you can see the engine is still in the car and the all elusive rear wheel moldings are still there. The quarter panels although dented look to be rust free. The aluminum rear bumper ends look to be in good shape too! 



    If you have ever bought or sold parts for one of these Eldorados. I'm sure you have already added up the value of this car in the sky. Thats one expensive piece of sign art! 
**********
     A big THANK YOU to all of the contributors in this update.  From California to Sweden & Holland, the global interest is remarkable. Please keep the pics and info coming!!!
