For Sale: 1957 Cadillac Eldorado in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

Rare, powerful, and elegant - this 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz convertible is opulence on wheels. But what really strikes you about this one is how it's been given a comprehensive pink upgrade that would make Elvis Presley proud. And as you see everything from the dual-quad V8 to the power options, you start to realize that this vibrant Caddy also remains a great luxury cruiser.

It's hard not to make Elvis comparisons when looking at the bold pink finish. It was done a few years ago, and it continues to have the gloss to show off the car's curves. And that's at the heart of this drop-top's appeal. It's from a time when designers were in charge at the car companies. The Eldorado Biarritz took the Series 62 styling to a new level with a unique rear end that was arguably sleeker and more artful than any other car of its era. They were also expensive, which led to only 1,800 built in '57. So, it was hard to find a pricier and rare Cadillac without being named Eisenhower. We know you are looking at all the detailed pictures to make sure all that intricate chrome trim is in place. And we're happy to tell you this car is complete and bright from the Dagmar caps all the way down to the trim in the unique tailfins. Speaking of the rear section, no one did it better than Cadillac in the '50s. With the split bumper and integrated exhaust, this is pure sculpture on wheels.

The gray convertible top adds a tasteful look against the bright pink, and beneath it is a sharp-looking interior that continues to combine the two colors. The seating with Cadillac crest brightwork is factory-correct and reminds us all that true class has a timeless elegance. The rest of the interior is nothing but a great coordinating festival of gray, pink, and chrome. You see this on everything from the door panels, to the carpeting, to the steering wheel. The dash is original equipment, and the dazzling chrome instrument panel will most definitely remind you of a Wurlitzer jukebox. You'll also appreciate details like the classic tissue box and AM/FM radio upgrade hidden in the glovebox. And more than just elegant, this has rare options for its time like air conditioning, power seats, and the Autronic Eye that automatically dims the headlights. These features will need servicing to fully function again, but you'll still love showing them all off. And the power top and power windows remain working well. So it only takes the touch of a few switches to go from enclosed luxury to a wind-in-your-hair experience - you don't even have to leave the driver's seat!

Cadillac's 365 cubic-inch motor fills this engine bay properly with big V8 power. This looks fantastically stock with the blue block and valve covers hiding under the golden triangle air topper. Those who know the Biarritz get excited about this feature. Because beneath it is a dual set of four-barrel carburetors. This extra kick of horsepower completed a package that delivered a sleeker, desirable, and more powerful car for true distinction - exactly why the Biarritz is seen as the most collectible Caddy of the era. And while this one had muscle-car level figures, its delivery was far more civilized. It could cruise the boulevards with confidence, and the dual exhaust has a nice rumble that reminds you of a classic American V8 without jeopardizing the Cadillac's luxury atmosphere. Add in the Hydramatic automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes, and this makes for an effortless vintage cruiser.

The Biarritz convertibles remain in high demand and short supply. So you're likely not to find one this bold, complete, or affordable again. Call now!
