Biarritz Convertible
Designer: Dave Holls
Although the 1959 Cadillacs may be the most recognized, the 1960 models are certainly among the most beautiful. At the top of the lineup is the Eldorado Biarritz. With a smoother and more subdued look, it is among the most desirable Personal Luxury cars of the era. The elimination of the 1959's pointed grill guards and the lowered rear fins that flowed with the body lines made the 1960 models considerably more conservative, but certainly not boring.

The Eldorado Biarritz Convertible, with a mere 1,285 produced, marks the final year that Cadillac used air suspension, a wraparound windshield and tri-power carburetion. The 390 cubic inch engine produces 345 horsepower and provided plenty of power to move its hefty 5060 pound curb weight.

This prime example of The Standard of the World joins us from the Ed Meurer collection. It features a long list of standard and optional equipment, including leather upholstery, the Autotronic automatic eye lighting system, an AM-FM transistor radio and much more.

When purchased in 1990, the current owner drove this car home over 700 miles with no incidents. Several years later, it was treated to a full body-off restoration which included new paint, refinished chrome and stainless trim, a new top and a fully rebuilt all-original drive-train.

This Eldorado is a fine example of what 'Car Life' magazine called 'The best buy in the luxury field' for 1960. It is splendid in its original shade, Carrera Green.
