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.

Junk Biarritz's

Body #1128, PNT #90, Trim #10, Top #1, Acc- EH. Offered for sale on Ebay. Very rough condition. No tag info or serial number. Seller noted that if the car did not sell he would cut it up for parts. It did not sell. So the car is listed here in the junk section. This car is not counted as a survivor. EBay auction March 2015. On eBay again, September 2015.



Identified as a convertible by the top bow and as an Eldorado by third horn(later type non trumpet style) and starlight silver Eldorado color. 

These two were photographed in the late 1970's near Tacoma WA. Someone started to work on the red one but gave up. Did they survive??
