  • The genius of GM Chief Designer Harley Earl, the Eldorado Biarritz Convertible, was the top of the line model for 1957, with a base price of $7,286 with plenty of room for factory options. From the curved windshield to the softer curved sections of the body, placed on a new X-frame chassis, the 1957 model became a truly all-new car. Power was derived from the 6.0 liter/365ci V8 fitted with dual-quad carburetors, resulting in a staggering 325hp! Special two-tone leather combinations were offered on the interior while the exterior featured gold Sabre-spoke wheels finished in gold to match the scripts and grille on the car. Such luxury was only available to the extremely affluent, and only 1,800 examples were completed for 1957. As such, the 1957 Eldorado Biarritz Convertible remains one of the most highly sought-after models by collectors today!

     

    The exceptional 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible featured here is finished in the stunning color combination of Black over gorgeous red and white leather interior and complimenting white power-folding convertible top. This example has been exquisitely restored with incredible attention to detail and has just been released from a respected private collection of prominent film producer Richard Donner of Los Angeles. Mr. Donner purchased this Eldorado Biarritz in 1999 from John P Esposato of Beverly Hills and has remained in Southern California since new.

    The numbers matching 365ci “dual quad” V8 engine is still in place while a mere 68100 actual miles are present on the odometer! An incredible assortment of power features, amenities, and factory options adorn this Cadillac today, including leather seats, chrome Sabre wheels, 3-piece parade boot, air conditioning and more! Simply put, this is one of the best examples we have ever offered, and this example is sure to bring many years of enjoyment to its future caretaker. We are especially proud to offer this exceptional 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible to the most astute collector or investor who appreciates this particular level of performance, luxury, and detail that helped to make Cadillac “the standard of the world.”

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months
