1959 CADILLAC ELDORADO BIARRITZ

99273 original Miles

Persian Sand was one of the 5 exclusive paint colors! (paint code is: 98)

 

This 1959, Cadillac's Eldorado sub-series included the Seville hardtop and the Biarritz convertible, along with the Brougham four-door hardtop. Standard Eldorado features included all the items available on the Series 62 DeVille line and beyond, including a heater, fog lamps, air suspension, a radio with a rear-mounted speaker, power windows, a six-way power seat, electric door locks, and whitewall tires.

Only four options were available: air conditioning, cruise control, the Autronic Eye automatic headlight dimmer, and E-Z Eye glass.

The 1959 Eldorado Biarritz offered here was formerly displayed at the Sarasota Classic Car Museum, and it continues to benefit from a beautiful and thorough restoration that was completed in 2003.


This nicely preserved Eldorado remains stunning in its overall presentation, and shows 99,275 actual miles. Displaying an attractive Persian Sand exterior finish, the Eldorado is complemented by a burgundy power-operated convertible top, a body-color fiberglass parade boot, and impressively restored brightwork.


Fittingly, this Eldorado rides on a set of period-style wide whitewall tires, along with a handsome set of chrome-plated Kelsey-Hayes 40-spoke wire wheels.

Under the hood, the engine bay is period-correct in presentation, and features a 390 cubic inch V8 that is correctly finished in Cadillac blue, and topped by a gold-finished air cleaner

The Eldorado featured the ultimate Cadillac engine for 1959, the enlarged “Q”-code 390 cubic inch V8, which was topped by three two-barrel Rochester carburetors.
This power plant produced 345 horsepower, and was mated with a three-speed Hydra-Matic automatic transmission as standard equipment.

No other car of the era, or since, can surpass the timeless style, beauty and grace of the 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz.

This Cadillac can be shown by appointment only. Please direct all questions regarding this car to me personally at Chris@LagunaClassics.com
