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.

Sixty Years Ago This Week, '56 Cadillac's Hit the Showroom. An Eldo and Lion! A Special Biarritz Found.

Hi All,

Sixty years ago this week the 1956 Cadillac lineup hit the showroom floors all across America. Big year for Cadillac with the introduction of two new models, the Sedan deville and the Eldorado Seville. Here's some ad's and pictures from the launch.

  What a year for Cadillac.

A Texas man, a 1956 Eldorado Biarritz and a Lion ???

Only in Texas folks :)  Back in 1955 Charlie Hipp adopted a Lion cub from the Dallas zoo. The name of this lion was Blondie and Charlie kept Blondie as a pet in the house. He took the lion everywhere. He also owned a 1956 Eldorado Biarritz which lead to this fantastic picture. Enjoy!
