Very nice 1979 Eldorado Biarritz on ebay right now. Love that black paint and porno red leather, one of my favorite color combos:drool:

The stainless roof and alloy wheels really make a statement in the era of full vinyl tops and wire wheel hubcaps.

She's a beauty. I always liked the looks of those cars but I was always turned off by the fwd. Now that I have a 92 Deville, it doesn't really feel like fwd to me compared to other fwd's that I have driven, so I wouldn't be so turned off on the fwd now. It is a very stylish Caddy and it looks immaculate. I doubt you would be disappointed.

Beautiful. Even has the rare stainless steel roof! I would take one of these but most of them that I find have the HT-4100 motor in them. :(

Someone also took out the awesome factory radio (amber display screen) and replaced it with garbage.

That's what I love about this one, 350 olds, fuel injected. Same motor that was in the 76-79 Seville.

I thought ALL hardtop Biarritz of that era had the ss roof. In other words. that's what made it a Biarritz.

The 79-85 Eldorado, is without a doubt, one of the best designs Cadillac ever had. Simply beautiful from all angles, almost proportionally perfect and so timeless....love it. I'd love to have an '81 Eldorado Biarritz, just because it was the 2nd year for the totally digital climate control, it still had the 6.0L V8 (just disable the 8-6-4) and in my opinion, the 1981's grille was the best.

What's w/the Speed Racer/Spy Hunter center hub caps on the alloys....the alloys look stock, but those spiral things don't.

I agree on the stereo. I'd find a stock radio and switch it back. Put in a new amp and speakers...and an Ipod or Sat Rad...

Hot car though....I LOVE the Touring Coupe version of that Eldo w/the saddle leather...

Sold for $4900. I thought it would've fetched between 6-8k.
