Please call Matt directly at 513-708-1468 with any questions about this car.

Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this absolutely spectacular 1956 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible. This Eldorado was recently treated to an extremely high quality restoration. The car has a brand new stunning white paintjob, brilliantly refinished chrome, and a brand new beautiful tan interior and top. It features excellent fit and finish, it runs great, and is a pleasure to drive.

Please note that this Cadillac is "numbers matching," the engine number listed on the tag in the driver's door jam, 5662073179, is also stamped on the engine block and pictured in this ad. This same number is also correctly stamped on the right frame rail.

This is an excellent opportunity to own a very rare and highly desirable classic Cadillac. Only 2,150 Eldorado Biarritz's were made for 1956. The market on 1950's Cadillac convertible is very hot right now, especially for premium examples like this car. One could easily buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase price in years to come. There is no way someone could purchase a similar Cadillac and restore it to this level of quality for anything near our asking price. Please peruse all of the photos, video, and other information below to get a true sense of how exceptionally nice this Cadillac really is.

As a side note, this Eldorado is not a dealer auction vehicle. We hand pick each car after careful inspection. Our Classics come from owners who expect their cars to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did. We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize each picture. We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase. If you have a question about the Cadillac, just give us a call.

Exterior

The white exterior is in beautiful condition. As one can see in the photos the finish has dazzling gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish. The wheels and center caps are in excellent condition with a nice finish and no curb rash. The Coker Classic wide whitewall tires are brand new with less than 20 miles on them. The chrome looks great and has a brilliant finish. The soft-top is in brand new condition with no stain, rips, holes, or frayed edges. The top itself operates well and power top functions smoothly. The entire operation of the power top going up and down can be viewed in the video. Please note that this Eldorado features a hard parade boot to cover the top while it is down. As one can see in the many photos of the underside, this Cadillac is totally solid with absolutely no rust; the bottom of the car is very clean.

This Eldorado looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.

Interior

The tan interior of the Cadillac looks utterly splendid. The quality of the workmanship and materials is top-notch. The seats are in like new condition with no wear. The carpet is also in "like new" condition with no major stains, rips, or holes. The dash is in terrific condition with no cracks, fading, or sun damage. The interior chrome and bright work is in great shape. The original AM radio sounds good and even the power antenna works as one can see in the video. The door panels look excellent. This car has not been smoked in; there are obviously no burn marks or aroma of cigarettes what-so-ever.

The trunk is very clean, highly detailed and trimmed in the same tan carpet, and complete with the matching full size spare tire, matching rim, jack, jack handle, jack base, and bumper hook.

The interior looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.

Mechanical

This Cadillac Eldorado seems to be in good mechanical condition. The numbers matching 365ci V8 engine starts every time, runs well, and idles smooth. The car drives nicely and just floats down the road. In the video below one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, braking to stoplight, and going through some curves. Please note that there are no vibrations and the car performs quite well overall. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. The transmission shifts smoothly throughout the power band. The horn works as do all the exterior lights, interior lights, power top, and even the power antenna. There are a few items not functional such as the blower for the heater, temp gauge, wipers, and clock. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this Cadillac, especially with the top down on a beautiful day.

Also, the engine compartment is beautifully clean, detailed, and correct as one can see in the photos with the dual-quad carburetor setup and the correct original air cleaner and valve covers. Both Carter WCFB carburetors are also correct and each still has the original triangular metal ID tag attached to it. The front carburetor shows the correct 2373S part number with a "B6" date code. The "B" indicates February and the "6" is the last digit of the calendar year, 1956. The rear carburetor shows the correct 2372S part number with an "A6" date code. "A" is January so the rear carburetor is dated from January of 1956.

Overall Condition

Overall, this 1956 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz is in marvelous condition. This is truly an investment grade classic. As stated above, there is absolutely no way someone could restore a Cadillac to anywhere near this level for any amount near our asking price.

The excellent restoration, the great attention to detail, and the beautiful color combination make this car especially important and difficult to duplicate. This Cadillac always gets a ton of attention driving down the road. It is very apparent that the vehicle has been well taken care of by its previous owners. One could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal effort.

Thank you for looking and please email or call with any questions.
