The Cadillac Eldorado is a personal luxury that was manufactured and marketed by Cadillac from 1953 to 2002 over ten generations. The Eldorado was at or near the top of the Cadillac line during early model years. The original 1953 Eldorado convertible and Eldorado Brougham models of 1957-1960 were the most expensive models that Cadillac offered those years.

This is the very first 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz convertible built (serial number 5762000-001). It has been documented as such through the Cadillac Historical Services, which provided a copy of both the build sheet and the original title.

This car was found in Illinois through an internet ad. It took two trailers to transport the car and all of the parts to Minnesota, where a complete restoration was undertaken. During the restoration, it was discovered that many areas of the car were stamped “sample.” Both the fiberglass heater box and rear bumper extensions were handmade parts. This “first off” Eldorado Biarritz is a factory triple green car, painted in the original Elysian Green.
