1956 Cadillac Series 62

For 1956 the Cadillac Series 62 was restyled, with changes appearing throughout the vehicle. A new grille could now be found in the front, and repositioned bumper lights now resting in the bumper. The Eldorado series of the Model 62 line-up consisted of a two-door Hardtop Coupe Seville and a Coupe Biarritz. Both had two doors and seating for six. Their base price was well above the regular Series 62, costing a hefty $6,500. The base Series 62, in comparison, cost $4150. A total of 3,900 buyers selected the Eldorado Hardtop Coupe Seville and 2150 purchased the Eldorado Convertible Biarritz. The most popular bodystyle in the Series 62 lineup was the four-door Sedan DeVille which saw 41,732 examples produced.
