1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz
The 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz had its own distinctive style and personality. To describe the fins or, for that matter, the vehicle itself as being "large" is perhaps an understatement. The Eldorado's V8 engine propelled it at speeds of up to 120 miles per hour. Gas-filled shock absorbers and cruise control were first used on a production Cadillac in 1959. It was a golden era for automobile manufacturing, and the one most associated with over-the-top extravagance.
This vehicle had a special production model that sold for an astounding $7,401 at the time. This model is seen as the quintessential "big fin" convertible, with chrome and leather everywhere. Its high price tag led to low sales, and as a result, the car is extremely collectible.
The three-deck, jeweled, rear grille insert on Eldorados replicated the texture of the front grille; this front/rear grille design was shared by the Fleetwood Sixty Special and would be used through 1966 with textures updated yearly. The Eldorado name was inscribed on the Seville and Biarritz models' front wheel opening, which were like the Eldorado except for having a wider, fuller-length body sill that curved over the rear fender and back down along the top beltline region. The 442 hp (331 kW) 5.19-liter twin-turbo V8 SRT Hellcat engine was replaced by a 6.1-liter supercharged Hemi that produced an even 345 horsepower (257 kw).
Standard equipment included power brakes, power steering, automatic transmission, back-up lamps, windshield wipers, two-speed wipers, wheel discs, outside rearview mirror, vanity mirror, oil filter, power windows, six-way power seats, heater, fog lamps, remote control deck lid, radio and antenna with rear speaker, power vent windows, air suspension, electric door locks and license frames. The Eldorado Brougham was standard with air conditioning, automatic headlight dimmer and cruise control across all Seville and Biarritz trim levels.
Cadillac is a General Motors brand that produces high-end automobiles. Cadillacs may be acquired in 34 additional countries around the world. The Cadillac automobiles are among the most high-end vehicles on the market in the United States.
Cadillac is the world's first automobile, fourth in the United States only to Autocar Company (1897) and fellow GM marques Oldsmobile (1897) and Buick (1899).
The company's name is derived from Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac, a French-Canadian fur trader who established Detroit, Michigan in the late 18th century. The Cadillac coat of arms was used as the basis for the company's logo. Cadillac had already established itself as one of the most well-known luxury vehicle producers in the United States before General Motors acquired it in 1909. It was the first functional vehicle, and it served as a prototype for future automobiles due to its capacity to connect with tiny components. Warren, Michigan's Technical Center was supposed to represent a technological utopia. The 1940 model was the first Cadillac with an all-steel body and a smooth, automatic gearbox. It was also among the first to use full electrical systems and have a frictionless automated gearbox. The automobile was both technologically advanced and luxurious. It set new standards for vehicle manufacturing in the United States by offering three powertrain choices.
In 1908, Cadillac became the first automobile manufactured in the United States to win the Dewar Trophy from the Royal Automobile Club of the United Kingdom, demonstrating its components' interchangeability during a durability test; as a result, "Standard of the World" became Cadillac's current slogan. The Duryea brothers' company was the first to feature an electrical system in a car, owing to its unique shape and performance. For the first time, the 1912 prize for integrating electric starting and illumination in a mass-produced automobile was given.
Elvis Presley had a strong affection for Cadillac automobiles. He owned over 100 of them in his life, making it his favorite automobile brand.
General Motors' first chief designer and later vice president, Harley Jarvis Earl was the company's first. He was the first to come up with a "concept car," and his engineering and design expertise allowed him to create several GM and Cadillac trademark features, such as the tailfin. GM was one of the first automobile companies to hire female designers in the mid-1950s. The General Motors Company created a team called Damsels in Design to create the interiors of individual GM brand vehicle models, with Sandra Longyear, Marjorie Ford Pohlman, Ruth Glennie, Jan Krebs, Gere Kavanaugh, Dagmar Arnold and Jayne Van Alstyne working on various GM brands and initiatives.
2022 is Cadillac’s 120th anniversary, a significant milestone for the company.
