This is the ultimate American large convertible, the Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz is the quenticential automobile of American Heritage. Wearing the signature design of Dave Holls, in an era where no design was too wild, the nineteen-foot-long Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible you see before you is a more reserved version created for 1960. Powered by a 390 cubic inch, 345 horsepower V8, wearing three carburetors, and riding on a 130-inch wheelbase and chock full of power equipment, this is the ultimate American convertible, Cadillac style. Cadillac assembled 1,285 Eldorado Biarritz convertibles in 1960. Costing $7,400 (two-and-half-times the average new car price), the car came very well equipped. Equipment which includes air suspension, a fiberglass parade boot, fog lights, autronic eye, electric trunk pull down, power vent windows, vacuum door locks and Florentine leather. The car touts a new taillight design with thin red lenses replacing the bullet style lenses used earlier, but retained much of the 'finfully' over-the-top styling that debuted in 1959. Cadillac introduced the Eldorado convertible in 1953 and it was known as a status symbol around the world throughout the 1950's, 60's, and beyond. Car Life magazine selected the 1960 Cadillac as its 'Best buy in the luxury field.' The Biarritz sold for the same $7401 list price. 1,282 Eldorado Biarritz convertibles were produced for the 1960 model year. 1960 was the year that marked the division's last use of triple two-barrel carburetion. According to contemporary road tests, gas economy rating for 1960 Cadillac's were approximately 14 miles per US gallon at a steady 60 miles per hour. This car has been restored 4-5 years ago and is in excellent condition, the car never had and major rust and if it had it was repaired the proper way because I can not see any mistakes or major replacement at all. This is a perfect very nice driver that will give someoe many years of enjoyment. This color combination is spectacular and never really looks dirty even if it has some road dust on it. I am installing a new white convertible top at this time and of course it wil come complete with the car. Call today these cars do not last long in inventory.
