If you're looking for a rare, classic drop-top Caddy, look no further. This 1961 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz 2-Door Convertible is one of only 1,450 produced. It has just come out of local collection and remains in amazing original condition. The car is finished in factory original Olympic White (code 12) with a white soft top (code 1) over an original Blue trim (code 13) interior. And the 6367 code on the cowl tag indicates this Series 62 Cadillac is a true, limited production Eldorado Biarritz. This car retailed at $7,401 in 1961. In comparison, the fastest production car of the era was the 1966 Corvette, and that sold for only $4,084. Basically, a Cadillac in those days was equivalent to a Bentley today.
This fourth generation Eldorado is powered by Cadillac's 390ci/325hp 4bbl V8 mated to a 4-Speed Hydramatic transmission with rear wheel drive. The car fires on command, runs well, and shifts smooth - great car for a weekend cruise or a summer drive-in. Plus, for $7,500 in 1961, you got plenty of amenities: six power windows, power convertible top, power brakes, power steering, air conditioning, power locks, power seats, power trunk release and even a headlight dimmer on the dashboard. These cars were loaded with luxury, which is why they were priced higher than the fast cars of that era.
This is an awesome Cadillac with very few still on the road. You can't replicate the classic body lines and huge back fins. Take the family out in style.
