A product of the legendary GM Motorama shows, from its introduction in 1953 the Cadillac Eldorado established itself as a luxurious and impressive flagship for the brand, the pinnacle of achievement and the aspirational dream of every GM car buyer.  The Eldorados forecast style ideas which would later filter down to lesser models and guaranteed exclusivity for its owners with a lofty price tag.

With the launch of the 1957 Cadillac line came a new “X” frame which did away with side rails and provided added structural strength, contributing to an even quieter, smoother ride than before as well as allowing a lower body placement for reduced overall height.  This suited the elegant style of the Eldorado, both the Seville hardtop and the Biarritz convertible.  While Cadillac’s style went on to a flamboyant climax toward the end of the decade, the simple, clean elegance and restrained modernism of the 1957 Eldorado remains the preference for many. 

This beautiful example was reportedly purchased as an original, rust-free example four years ago, and it is now a showroom fresh, completely restored example.  Cadillac specialist Jenkins Restoration of North Wilkesboro, North Carolina recently completed the work and, as might be expected of this respected shop, employed materials which are stated to be correct and to original factory standards.

Presented in its original, period correct exterior finish of Starlight Silver Metallic with a brilliant Red Leather interior and black vinyl soft top, this Eldorado has hardly been driven since leaving the Jenkins shop, with only test and sorting mileage covered.  The distinctive finned Turbine wheels have been freshly refinished, and all the exterior chrome and bright trim has been restored or refinished to a high level.  The interior is new, with expertly done upholstery and the extensive bright trim finished to a high level.  Under the hood the distinctive “bat wing” air cleaner, underneath which sit dual four-barrel carburetors, dominates the view.  Both the engine and transmission, original to the car, have been rebuilt, and a new exhaust system has been fitted.

This 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible was recently awarded "Best in Class" at the 2012 Concours d' Elegance of Texas and "1st in Class" at the 2012 Classy Chassis Concours d' Elegance at Reliant Stadium.

For the connoisseur who knows and appreciates the great 1950s American convertibles, the opportunity to purchase one of the pinnacles of style, quality, and exclusivity is one which is to be carefully considered.  There is a reason Cadillac lived up to its slogan “The Standard of The World” in this period, and this Eldorado Bearritz gives ample proof.
