For Sale: 1963 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz in Sugar Hill, Georgia

Vehicle Description

Cadillac only built 1,825 of the exclusive, luxurious Eldorado Biarritz convertibles in 1963. With a completely redesigned V8 engine, it was smaller and lighter than its 1962 predecessor and still displaced 390 cubic inches. It was rated at 325 horsepower at a modest 4800 RPM. It is a surpassingly rare automobile, even contrasted with the Series 62 convertible, which is rare enough with only 17,600 built.

While other Cadillac’s in 1963 had chrome body side trim, the Biarritz flaunted its exclusivity with its minimal chrome embellishments. If “minimal” can be used to describe a car with fins, an intricate chrome grill, matching chrome deck lid trim and generous bumpers, then this one is it.

At $6,609 before options, it was Cadillac's most expensive 1963 offering apart from the extended wheelbase Fleetwood 75s. Conveniences were standard, like power vent windows, 6-way power front bench seat, automatic transmission, power brakes, power steering and a power top. This 1963 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz convertible is even better equipped including factory air conditioning and Autronic Eye headlight dimmer. Even the top boot cover is white leather matching the sumptuous white leather upholstery, white vinyl top and black carpets. The exterior is bright blue.

This is a handsome, straight car with an older restoration that still shows exceptional condition. It drives as well as it looks. The bodywork (and there is plenty of it) is dead straight, just as impressive now as it was when restored two decades ago. It is ready to be enjoyed with pride and confidence in the beautiful summer and fall driving months.
