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.

**** Vehicle serial numbers and owner names will not be published ! ****




BDY# 1350, Trim #10, Top #2, ACC-EH. In Sweden as of 2015.
The owner writes: The car has been in Sweden since the late 80"s. It went through a restoration and took to the roads in April 1990. It went through another more thorough restoration (not frame off) in 1997-1998. The paint job is from 1997. The grille and other ornaments were sent to the US for gold plating. It is the car I use each summer, so actually rolls quite a lot. I bought the car a couple of years ago from a friend.
