The first Cadillac Eldorado was a Harley Earl designed 2-door convertible launched in 1953 that was meant to be driven with the top down by rich folks. By 1956 Cadillac started using the designation Biarritz to designate the convertible version (and Seville for hardtop) and in 1959 they had an Eldorado Brougham version that was coach built in Italy by Pininfarina. Today’s example comes from the 10th generation of Eldorado production and was the final generation to offer a convertible. The world had changed considerably in the 30 years since the original Eldo, but I don’t think the buyers had changed…aside from the addition of wrinkles and greys.
