1978 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Coupe

Why This Car Is Special

We have a 1978 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Coupe here at Skyway Classics that is a stunning "Survivor" car that is an unrestored original car delivered in the fall of 1977. It has the original paint and Interior with only 45,000 original miles.

In 1978, Edward C. Kennard, general manager of the Cadillac Motor Division and vice president of General Motors, offered a "special edition" Biarritz package in five colors and easily recognized by its unique, padded vinyl roof, wide body moldings, opera lamps, distinctive Biarritz script, special accent stripes, color coordinated wheel disks and plush interior appointments with 50/50 pillow type leather seating. It had a list price of over $13,000 when appropriately optioned.


1978 was the last year for the large, front-wheel drive Eldorado and was truly the end of an iconic automotive era, when bigger was always better.

The engine is a cast iron block and head V-8 with displacement of 425 cubic inches developing 180 smooth horsepower at 4,000 RPM backed by an automatic transmission with no known significant engine or transmission repairs needed since new and is loaded with all the power options that could be had back then.

The engine compartment also maintains the original factory appearance with components only replaced or repaired as needed and the air conditioning blows cold (was so reliable from new that it was converted to A134 only recently).


The beautiful Desirable Biarritz package deluxe pillow seat interior of white leather twin bucket seats is completely original including the factory plush red carpet. The trunk area is complete with the space-saving spare, jack, tools and felt-style liners. No description here will tell you what you need to come see, but I will sum it up in one word....exquisite!


Our survivor Cadillac retains the original Paint and was a One Owner up until 2005, and the same owner since then. It has the original most desirable color combinations "Triple White" with red interior trim offered for the 1978 model year and the white vInyl top in superb overall condition.

It rides on the factory steel wheels with bright chrome Cadillac factory hub caps and white wall tires.


The 1978 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Coupe time capsule car here at Skyway Classics is extraordinarily well cared for and still maintains the factory showroom appearance.

You simply must come see this investment grade automobile up close and in person, as the photos do not do justice to what it really looks like.

Preserved Cadillacs in this condition simply do not come to the market very often. Here is your opportunity to own one of the finest 1978 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz's in the country.
