This immaculate 1985 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz only has 32k miles.


This would be the last year for this Eldorado body which made it's debut in the fall of 1978(1979-1985). If ever there was a car that automotive enthusiasts and non-automotive enthusiasts alike will come together on, the Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz is the one. Most will agree that this is one of the best looking cars ever created. It get's approving comments whenever it is driven from the young, old, male, and female alike about how great looking it is. That makes a strong statement about the future collectability of these Eldorados.


 These Eldorados continue to get better looking as the years go by as well. A unique ensemble of Cadillac tradition in design with it's limo style rear window and the rear of the car having definite styling cues from the 67-70 Eldorados. The Biarritz package raised the bar considerably with it's stainless steel roof which was a nod back to the 57 and 58 Eldorado Broughams. The Biarritz also included a wide chrome strip perfectly placed across the roof and then sweeping down the tops of the doors on down to the end of the front fenders. Tufted leather or velour interiors were much more plush than the non-Biarritz Eldorado. Padded landau vinyl roofs were standard on the Biarritz as well.


    The demand for this body amongst collectors has never been higher. Cadillac aficionados are snapping the best examples up for their collections. Most prefer to own the last year of a body style and 1985 was the very last year for this incredible body style and from a design standpoint was GM at it's finest hour. These Eldorados were the last of a classic style era which will never be produced again.


This immaculate example is finished in a very classic color combination of Cotilian White with Carmine Red leather interior. Hard loaded with the astro-roof, memory seats, auto-dimming lights, twilight sentinel, extremely rare factory alloy touring wheels and the list goes on.


The essence of "personal luxury" this Biarritz drives like a dream.

I have had the privilege of owning quite a few of these Eldorados in my 20+ years of Cadillac collecting, and this particular example is hands down in the best condition of them all. This particular Eldorado was a one-owner car and has always been collector owned and garage kept.  With only 32k miles, this Cadillac needs no excuses and stands well to be a very lucrative long term investment. The best resale colors for these are white, red, blue and black.

The bumper rub strips are like new with no scrapes.

All lenses are clear and free of cracks.

Very rare factory touring wheels. There is an extra touring wheel in the trunk mounted on a matching Michelin tire.

 This Cadillac was ordered with a generous list of options, with a sticker price of almost $29k whereas a base Eldorado stickered for $21,319. Some of these options include; Touring wheels($429), Memory Drivers Seat($225), Leather Seating Area($680), Twilight Sentinel($85), Guidematic Head lamp Control($128), Astro Roof($1,225) Power Passenger seat recliner w/six-way power seat($380),  Electric Remote-control Outside Mirrors($101), Symphony Sound AM/FM Cassette ($299), Illuminated Vanity Mirrors Driver and Passenger($140), Illuminated Entry System($80), Rear Window Defogger including Heated Outside Mirrors($220), and the list goes on.

32k miles. Perfect carfax on this Eldorado.

This is the icing on the cake to not only have the ultra rare touring wheels but to also have a perfect extra in the trunk!

Above is from the factory brochure showing the two wheel choices. Wire wheel hubcaps or the more expensive alluminum Touring Wheel. The real wire wheels you see on some eldorados are not factory original equipment. They were dealer added. White walls were also made smaller for 1985 whereas the 84 and older had 1.5 inch wide white wall tires.

This car runs very smooth and shifts excellent. Such a pleasure to drive.
