While other companies kept models in mostly identical form over several years, Cadillac was able to restyle their products annually during the late 1950s and early 1960s. For the 1960 model year, Cadillac’s stylists shrank the rear fins, restrained the use of chrome and generally created a more elegant shape. The 1960 model is a favorite among enthusiasts and collectors alike. With a low production number and a price of over $7,000 when new, the Eldorado Biarritz convertible was Cadillac’s most desirable offering in 1960.
One of just under 1,300 Eldorado Biarritz convertibles built by Cadillac in 1960, this beautiful car with red paint over a white leather interior is a rare piece of American luxury car royalty. Like all Eldorados, it is loaded with standard features that would be options on lesser automobiles including a fiberglass parade boot, Autronic Eye headlight dimmer, power windows, including the front door vent windows, and power trunk latch. It also includes a power top, power bench seat, factory radio, R134 air conditioning and cruise control. With chrome wire wheels and whitewall tires, this regal Eldorado Biarritz lives up to the promise of its elegant name. A very nice car with strong cosmetics, it it is equally usable in parades, weekend jaunts to the beach, or even long trips, all the while exuding that dazzling sense of expensive Americana that only a Cadillac of this era can provide.
