This Sonic Blue 1956 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz with a two-tone white on blue interior and white convertible top is the ultimate boulevard cruiser during summer and a well-designed beauty penned by Harley Earl.

1956 was the final year of production for the second-generation Cadillac Eldorado which was introduced in 1954. The Eldorado was designed by Harley Earl and was assembled in Detroit, Michigan. During its three-year production run, the Caddy was available as a two-door hardtop coupe and a convertible.

The Eldorado was powered by either a 331 cubic-inch, 5.4-liter or a 365 cubic-inch, 6.0-liter OHV V8. Regardless of the engine choice, all Eldorado models came equipped with a four-speed Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. Cadillac sold a total of 6050 copies of the Eldorado in 1956.
