1978 Cadillac Eldorado Custom Biarritz Special Edition

1978 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz

Sun Roof, Original Owner, Low Miles


One thing American cars from Detroit were known for was to be big, bold and powerful. Nothing represents this ideology more than the 1978 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz. This is a car that weighed close to 5,000 pounds and rolled out every bump and ripple in the road to make your ride as smooth as silk. It was powered by one of the largest V8 engines that Detroit has ever made. The Cadillac engine was teamed up with Cadillac’s unique front wheel drive.

The features didn’t stop there as the outside featured the Biarritz trim and the inside had the most plush of interiors to carry on the luxury theme. These Cadillac Eldorados have become a favorite for many collectors and the prices have reflected this by moving up very solidly.

The Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Classic was announced to the dealers in April 1978. It is said that the Classic was a limited production Biarritz model with only two-thousand units produced between May to July of 1978 and Sun Roofs on only 500. The Classic included the following options which were basically offered on the Custom Biarritz. There was the two-tone exterior paint, which combined the Arizona beige and Demitasse brown which was on the front hood and the roof surface. There were additional options that were offered unique to the Classic Eldorado Biarritz including the two-tone interior in light beige and dark saddle, leather wrapped steering wheel rim, gold plated Biarritz script on the exterior sail panels and the trunk lid, and dark brown accent stripping.

Custom Biarritz (also called the Special Edition). The "special edition" Biarritz package was easily recognized by its unique padded vinyl roof, wide body moldings, opera lamps, distinctive Biarritz script, special accent stripes, and color coordinated wheel disks. The Biarritz interior highlights plush appointments with 50/50 pillow type leather/vinyl seating.

Extremely rare - only 1 of 2000 examples produced in this last year of production. Again, it is said that this car is one of only 500 cars to have the Sun Roof.

This particular vehicle has always been garaged.This car has always been garaged since new in California. The 23,478 miles shows on the odometer and is believed to be correct.

The original engine is strong and powerful! Interestingly enough these cars are very quick off the line and can cruise all day at above traffic speeds.

If you are looking for something BIG, BOLD and POWERFUL that drives down the road so smooth and the seats feel more comfortable than most plush living room couches…than this could be the car that you are looking for! Keep in mind that the color scheme and design of the interior are most desirable for this model. Additional photos available to serious bidders.
