1960 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible in Red & Engine Sound on My Car Story with Lou Costabile
On "My Car Story" we're in the Suburbs of Chicago on 10-1-16. We're looking at a 1960 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Series 64 Convertible in Pompeian Red Paint ( the paint color looks like Burgundy ) and a Pearlescent Ivory stripe. The car has a V8 390 CI engine, and the Eldorado Biarritz has the triple two-barrel carburetors rather than the standard four barrel carburetor. In 1960 Cadillac produced only 1285 Eldorado Biarritz Convertibles. The car's Owners is Jim Rudnick. Jim shares he was interested in car as long as he can remember, and started drawing cars at the age of 9 and one of his drawings made a car magazine. In 1960 at the age of 21, he stopped by a Cadillac Dealership showroom and there spinning on a turn table was a 1960 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible and Jim shares, “it was jaw dropping” and he loved that model car. Jim finally found and purchased his 1960 in 1985. ENJOY!

For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/9fo6jyb 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 trophies. 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 tips. 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 corners. 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.
