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.

Three more on the list and Updates on Four more!

Hi All,

We have three new Eldorados to add to the roster and updates on four other roster cars. 
********

First up is Body #1287. This Alpine White example is nearing the completion of a body off restoration. Same owner since 1987!

********

Next up is this special order Biarritz. This one turned up on eBay. Body #1070 was ordered in Cobalt blue paint which was not a standard Eldorado color. It was also ordered with solid white leather trim. A very attractive and rare color combination.

                                         ********
Last but not least is this Bahama Blue beauty. Body # 2100 is the highest known body number on the roster to date. With only 2150 built, this car is one of the last built.

UPDATES: (cars currently on the roster)

Body # 417 is for sale in Germany for $89,000 euro. It is unknown if this car found a new home yet. 

 **********

Body #1079 is coming along nicely. Restoration work continues at the hands of the owner Down Under. 


**********

Body # 1623 showed up on eBay again. Looks to be a little more complete than the first time we saw the car. Auction ended early. Hopefully a new owner was found. 

*******
and the last one is from Hawaii and has been on the roster for a long time. It is now just about finished. This Eldorado is powered by a LS3 Chevy Big Block. 




Well, that's all folks! Another year has passed, a few more cars have been found. I thank you all for supporting this roster. It is truly a global effort.
