Lot #1238 - The 1962 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz convertible was top of the line and desirable. This particular Cadillac is one of only 1,450 produced in 1962. This is a spectacular example of Cadillac's Flagship Biarritz as it is factory correct and mostly original. The straight body is finished in Heather and appears to have benefitted from a paint job in the recent past. The chrome is in beautiful shape as well and retains as spectacular gleam. The car looks fantastic. The glass is the factory correct Soft Ray glass. The correct white convertible top appears to be newer and comes down effortlessly at the flip of a switch. The iconic bullet grille is a great detail of this Cadillac and compliments the straight body and nostalgic tail fins. The car sits elegantly on four Cadillac wheels with color matched inlays wrapped in P225/75R15 tires. The interior is finished in the correct white leather that is believed to be original in the rear. The front has been re-upholstered in leatherette. The seats are in beautiful condition and show no major signs of wear or tear. The door panels and carpet are all in good condition. The dashboard and gauges appear to be original and in excellent shape. There is minimal cracking to the dashboard due to age. The dash also houses a Wonderbar AM radio. Overall, the interior shows very well and is lovely. It has many power options such as power top, power windows, power locks, power vents and a 6-way power seat. Under the hood, the massive 390cid Cadillac V8 engine power the Biarritz. The engine is mated with a 4-speed Hydramatic automatic transmission. The car is equipped with power steering, power brakes and factory air conditioning. Mileage currently shows 55,897. Title reads exempt.
