Unlike the Cadillac Sixty Special and De Ville, Eldorado did not have a unique luxury package to provide it with a title change (such as the “d’Elegance” package). This was rectified in mid-year 1976 with the Biarritz package. A unique trim feature of Biarritz, a name that had not been used since the 1964 model year was a brushed stainless steel roof covering the front passenger compartment for model years 1979-1985. This was a styling cue reminiscent of the 1957/58 Eldorado Brougham. The rear half of the roof was covered with a heavily padded landau vinyl top accented with large “opera” lights. The interior featured “pillowed”-style, “tufted” velour or leather seating, with contrasting piping, along with an array of other options available.
A great example of the more expensive and luxury edition Cadillac, this Biarritz styled Eldorado with Astroroof, is mostly original and has only 64,000 recorded miles. Finished in an appealing Regency Gold and luxuriously upholstered with warm brown leather, this car will surely attract a lot of attention. Once inside this iconic automobile you notice it has plenty of character, with justifiably aged leather lining each seat and the pleasant addition of a sky-light, one feels very comfortable and at home.
