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.

Body #889, Trim #10, Top #2, ACC- EHS, the current owner writes... Was alerted to it's existence by a friend. Went to see it. Talked to the owner, Nice man. 12 years of going by to see him and the car. Nov 2000 he calls & agrees to sell me the car(rather than the 5 or 6 others). He had become ill & knew he wouldn't need the car (he died). Now, 12 years later I still own the car with intention of restoration or refurbishing. Love this car! UPDATE 12/2012, car was sold to new owner in North Carolina. UPDATE 9/2013 , car was sold again to a new owner from Detroit. Owner writes, 

Car number 889 a pink bombshell long past her prime is about to get a new lease on life. This car was a hares breath away from living out her days in Brazil. But thanks to her previous owner commitment to keeping her stateside, she will remain in the USA. This masterpiece of Detroit engineering caught the eye of a private collector whose museum like showroom is ironically less than 5 miles from the assembly line where this beauty was born. Her makeover however begins in South Louisiana in the shop of renowned car builder and master restorer Ray Dellumo. After a complete nuts and bolt frame off rotisserie restoration she will be on full display along with other masterpieces of the glory days of Detroit. Within the confines of the Vault Classic Car collection  (which by the way houses only convertibles) will also be no less than four 1954 Buick Skylarks, two 1957 fuel injected Pontiac Bonnevilles, 1957 D,E and F code Thunderbirds, and if that's not enough to blow your skirt up one of the two 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz's has serial number 00001!! The vault is a climate controlled showroom perfectly designed to preserve these American jewels and the history they represent for generations to come.
