Details

This 1955 Cadillac El Dorado Biarritz is an extremely rare Cadillac featuring a rebuilt, period-correct V8 paired with a desirable Hydromatic automatic transmission that, according to the consignor, run flawlessly together. A classic 1950s luxury convertible, this El Dorado shows well and has a recently refurbished exterior in Mandan Red with a clear coat that shines beautifully. The power convertible top and pump/motor are brand new. It includes its original chassis, floors, and rockers, as well as factory options such as dual quad carburetors with a bat wing air cleaner, a Wonderbar radio, and power brakes, steering and windows. The consignor believes that the nicely appointed and very sharp interior is original, and the entire vehicle is very clean and runs and drives exactly as it should. Recent servicing includes an oil change, chassis lube, and a general tune up. Sold with a title.

*Sale prices are inclusive of the buyers premium.
