Well here’s a vehicle you don’t see regularly, the sumptuous 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz. It’s an uncommon vehicle which is not really astonishing as they were over the top expensive when they were new (and still are clearly) and not that many were made. On the off chance that you had one back, you had truly made it!

Authoritatively part of the Series 62 vehicles, the Eldorado came in two adaptations. The Seville, a 2-entryway hardtop and Biarritz, the name given to the convertible. Both expense precisely something very similar and were essentially more costly than the same standard models.

The Eldorado has comparative front finishes yet didn’t convey hood decorations. Where they varied the most was at the back that adjusted downwards and the enormous shark balances that ruled the plan.

In the engine is the Cadillac 365 cubic inch V8 motor combined with a Hydra-Matic programmed transmission. Double carburetors gave another 25 strength than their customary vehicles, giving an all out yield of 325 hp. Weighing almost 5,000 lbs the Eldorado could in any case stay aware of the best of the opposition. Be that as it may, they were exceptionally parched and costly to work. We can’t envision however that the first proprietors, that followed through on an exceptional cost for these vehicles, were especially stressed over this.

Costing $7,286 the Eldorado Biarritz was around 40% more expensive than the standard Series 62 convertible and just 1,800 were made. This and the 1958 were the last of the truly distinctive Eldorados and are highly collectible.

To put the original price in perspective, this Caddy convertible cost almost as much as THREE 1957 Chevy Bel Air Convertibles.
