Cadillac Biarritz Convertible Daddy’s Caddy - Buy a Print Now
The 1956 Cadillac Biarritz Convertible pictured here is known as Daddy’s Caddy in our neck of the nape. That nape being the Texas Hill Country and surrounding counties. Heck! We don’t leave anyone out when it comes to good looking rides – even flat-landers! And let’s face it. This ’56 is spectacular to say the least. Doesn’t everybody hear the strains of “Moonglow” sung by Michael Bublé whilst gawking at this bewdy of a Caddy? ~:0)
Couldn’t find ol’ Michael Buble singing Moonglow. But here’s a tribute to the movie Picnic that featured Moonglow and the Theme from Picnic. Listen while you explore this beautiful Cadillac Biarritz Convertible we like to call Daddy’s Caddy. Source: BadZKarma99
All Out At Sea ~:0)
Way out on the sea aptly describes the ride in this Cadillac Biarritz Convertible. The road spreads out before the car as in submission to its weight and elegance. Cadillac has always known the secrets of the top down rods. Their convertibles are substantial and perform to perfection. Well – until they break – like anything else. But I must share I’ve yet to come across one that was slack. Willing would be a word I would use to describe Daddy’s Caddy top down. Top Up I would have to add – Imperial – private – cozy – to the list of complementary terms for this Cadillac.
1956 Cadillac Biarritz Convertible – Eldorado That Is
“I thought you might like a look at this very impressive 1956 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible. This car has undergone an extensive frame-off restoration and once you are up close, it’s easy to tell. Under the hood, you will find the numbers matching 365 V8, factory rated at 305 HP. The suspension consists of independent coil springs in the front with a live rear axle and 4-wheel power drum brakes. Other options include: AM Radio, Auto-Convertible Top, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Power Locks, Power Seats, Power Windows, Leather Interior, and Wide White Walls Tires. This car is not only highly desirable, but also rare. They made just 2,150 in 1956. The paint, chrome, and interior are in showroom condition.” Source: RamblinAround
Back to Our Candy Maroon Daddy’s Caddy
How ’bout that paint! It’s deep! It’s candy sweet! It is Lush. Sorta ties the whole image together. The craftsmen at the paint-shop must have polished the Cadillac til they could see my house in it. U know – ’56 was the first year in long yonks of time that saw the engine size increased. Noticeably more oomph on the trail in this Cadillac Biarritz Convertible than in earlier iterations of the ride. ~:0)

What If ~:0)
Ever wonder what might happen if the folks that made this ’56 Cadillac Biarritz Convertible would resurrect it for today’s market. I’m not talking about just bringing back a name b/c that’s certainly still around. I’m talking about making a car that is as visually stimulating as Daddy’s Caddy as a contemporary ride. It would be fantastic. Big Understatement yeh! ~:0)

Imagine Contemporary Mechanicals under a Classic Body
Nice rack-n-pinion steering with modern suspension would advance the roadability. And even though Cadillac updated the Hydro-matic used in the 1956 models – can’t help but know that a nice six-speed automatic transmission would do no harm to the drivability of a revamped ’56 styled Caddy. Mmmm – can almost taste it – or smell it – or whatever the visceral response to some intelligent re-think on the slab-sided clones plying the roads today. ~:0)
