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.

Another 56 Biarritz for the list

Hi All,

Body number 2114 just turned up on Youtube. This is the highest body number on the list so far. Here's the video with all of the details.



Plus this picture was sent in of a Starlight Silver Biarritz. Looks to be from the 1960's. It's a long shot but if anyone has info on this car please let me know.




That's all for now folks. Thank you for the support.

Two Cars Crossed the Auction Block Yesterday


Hi All,

1956 Eldorado Biarritzes did very well yesterday at the Auctions America auction held in Fort Lauderdale. This Bahama blue Biarritz sold for $240k and that is before commission!



Equally impressive auction results were realized for this factory a/c Alpine White example. At the same auction, this car sold for $212,500 plus commission. Not bad for a 14 year old restoration.   



Wanted

The Eyes On Design car show is looking for a 1956 Biarritz. If you are in the Michigan area and would like to attend, please read the details below. 
The 29th annual EyesOn Design will take place on Father's Day, June 19, 2016 on the beautiful grounds of the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Pointe Shores, Michigan. This automotive design exhibition is the major fund-raiser for the Detroit Institute of Ophthalmology, and the only car show in the country that is dedicated to design. 
 For more information, check out the website: www.eyesondesigncarshow.com
The show's overall theme will be "Powered by Design", and one of several featured categories will be Cadillac Eldorado 1953-1966. We seek stock-appearing, pristine examples for this closed-hood event. Admission is free for the exhibitor and a guest ($60 value), and includes complimentary breakfast and lunch, the official program, event poster, and a commemorative license plate with attached cloissonne badge. The Edsel and Eleanor Ford House, located on the shore of Lake St. Clair, will be open for free tours on the day of the show. 
We are planning on having 14 Eldorado convertibles (if possible) in the display, one from each year 1953-1966. As the owner of a 1956 Eldorado Biarritz, it would be greatly appreciated if you would give this event your consideration. 
Sincerely,
Don Renkert
Vehicle Selection Committee
