1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz
|Body||2 Door Convertible|
American luxury at its finest.
The influence of aviation on GM styling began in the late 1940’s with the appearance of P-38 tail fins on the 1948 Cadillacs. By 1959, airplanes had been replaced by rockets and their influence is clearly seen in this Cadillac Eldorado Biaritz convertible, boasting the tallest tail fin ever seen on a production vehicle, standing 45 inches tall.
Powered by a modified version of the 390 CID V-8 found in all Cadillac’s of the time, the Eldorado got a boost in power from three-two-barrel carburetors to deliver 345 horsepower. This kind of power would propel these 5,000 pound land rockets to a comfortable 130 mph top speed.
Equipped with a long list of standard equipment not available as options on other cars, the Biaritz delivered luxury features such as air suspension, power vent windows, antenna and more to make this car the center of attention wherever it would go.
