1956 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz To Rise Again At Phoenix Auction

One of just 2,150 produced in 1956 the Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz convertible was the pinnacle of luxury and performance at the time and today a fine example of automotive excellence past.

The car has been fully restored and features a gleaming Emerald Green with matching boot. The interior matches the exterior with green leather and white accents to break up the sea of green which covers the car from trunk to hood. Under the hood, and car for that matter, is where things get real fun with the, “365 CI V-8 was factory equipped with a dual-element Batwing air cleaner, dual Carter 4-barrel carburetors and dual exhaust with through-bumper exits for turbine-smooth propulsion through the Hydra-Matic dual-range automatic transmission.”

The elegance of yesteryear is further displayed in the cars gold Sabre wheels wrapped in whitewall tires. This classic is being presented at Mecum’s Phoenix, AZ auction March 14-16th. Auctions as recently as last year have seen similar ’56 Eldorado Biarritz convertibles go for as much as $125,000 and there is no indication that this one won’t command a similar price when it hammers in Arizona and just under two months.
