1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible

  • Chassis Number: 59E060153
The Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz of 1959 was powered by an enlarged Q-code 390 cubic-inch V8 engine that breathed through three two-barrel Rochester carburetors. It provided 345 horsepower which was sent to the rear wheels via a three-speed Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. A 2.94:1 was the standard rear-end gear ratio, while the optional 3.21:1 gears were a necessity for cars equipped with air conditioning.

This particular example was awarded an AACA Senior National First Prize in 1992. Since new, it has been treated to a complete body-off-frame restoration and well preserved since that time. It has traveled a mere 527 miles since the restoration and is finished in Persian Sand with a white power-operated convertible top. The interior is white leather upholstery with dark red carpeting.

In 2008 this 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible was brought to RM Auctions' Vintage Motor Cars of Meadow Brook. It was estimated to sell for $180,000-$230,000. A high bid of $231,000 including the buyer's premium was enough to secure new ownership. The lot was sold.
