Few automakers represent the remembered glitz and glamour of the 1950s
quite like Cadillac. With an original drivetrain, all original sheet metal
and extensive documentation this Biarritz is fully functional investment
grade Cadillac worthy of any show field.
From the graceful cut of the wheel arches to the dramatic tailfins atop the
downswept rear fender line, absolutely every piece of this car was designed
to appear in motion at all times. The flowing bodywork is covered in a
smooth coat of Alpine White that enhances the cars luxury demeanor. The
paintwork shows well in even the harshest of lighting and provides a
constant reminder of one of the reasons this Caddy has collected so many
From the full length grille to the tail fins, every piece of chrome has
been fully refurbished to showroom condition. Out back, a three-piece
parade boot covers the white convertible top.
Under that long hood lives the original 365 cubic inch V8. In its day, this
was a top of the line motor utilizing a comfortable 10.25:1 compression
ratio to produce an enviable 335hp and 405lb. ft. or torque. At the top of
the bay, three Rochester two-barrel carburetors bolted to the original
intake manifold are hidden by the gold-colored two-snorkel air cleaner
cover. The block, cast iron heads and intake wear their correct shade of
blue well with the Cadillac name scribed across the valve covers.. To the
sides, cast iron manifolds channel Exhaust gases out through a stainless steel dual
Exhaust system with angled chrome
Behind that V8 is a Hydra-Matic three speed automatic transmission well
suited to casual cruising. It channels power to the live rear axle which in
turn spins those polished Sabre wheels wrapped in white-wall tires. The
chassis has been rebuilt to factory specifications with a fully independent
suspension up front and a four link with coil springs keeping the back end
in place. . Braking comes courtesy of large drum brakes at all four
Documentation for this car is a treasure trove of Cadillac history. There
are typical items such as receipts and an album full of detailed
restoration pictures. An original owner's manual and separate booklets
detailing how to operate the jack and power top are also included. From
there, things go to the next level with two primary shop manuals as well as
secondary manuals that cover additional information. A large three ring
binder contains an original copy of the Master Parts List that details
every square inch of this car in amazing detail.
While it's difficult to point to any classic Cadillac as the defining
Cadillac of its era, this '58 certainly has all the hallmarks. With miles
of sleek lines, clean paint, brilliant brightwork, and an interior fit for
royalty, luxury doesn't get much better. Call, click or visit
