1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible
Priced at $7,401 in 1959 (the same price as the Eldorado Seville coupe), the Eldorado Biarritz runs a 345-horsepower 390-cubic-inch V8 engine and 3-speed Hydra-Matic transmission. This car can cruise at speeds from 120 to 130 miles per hour. Due to low production numbers (just 1,320), the 1959 Eldorado Biarritz Convertible is a highly prized and collectible vehicle today, with fine examples running anywhere from $150,000 to $200,000.

  1. Great rendition — especially of the Cadillacs. When will we ever see another Cadillac to rival those shown here? We need a new icon without worrying about fuel efficiency and “organic” greenness.

  2. A bright red Cadillac convertible was my ideal car when I was a kid and it still is. They don’t make such gorgeous cars any longer.
