AUCTION RESULTS: Lot 113 - Sold at a price of $68,750

335 bhp, 365 cu. in. V8 engine, three two-barrel carburetors, four-speed Hydra-Matic automatic transmission, independent front and four-link rear suspension with coil springs, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 129.5"

An excellent and mostly original survivor with less than 100,000 miles, this Eldorado Biarritz Convertible is one of just 815 examples produced for 1958. It was purchased new in Arizona, remaining there with its original owner until she reached her early nineties and moved to Oregon with the car to be with her son, who became the next owner of the car.

Today, it retains a straight body, the original black leather upholstery, the original brightwork and the original parade boot, as well as some of the original black paint finish, which remains quite presentable from having been touched up and partially refinished as required over the years. The current owner recently installed a new white convertible top and restored both front and rear bumpers, which accumulated some scrapes as both the car and owner aged over the years. The engine bay and its 335-horsepower, 365 cubic inch V8 are remarkably clean and presentable, complete with the correct air cleaner and triple-carburetor induction system. Although the original but problematic air suspension was replaced in favor of conventional springs, these original components do remain with the car today.

A recent road test reveals that the Eldorado drives, rides and runs very well, retaining the irreplaceable feel of a well-maintained original car. Riding on "Sabre-Spoke" wheels with whitewall tires and equipped with the optional Autronic-Eye headlight dimmer in addition to over 30 standard features, this rare and well preserved Eldorado Biarritz can be driven, enjoyed and shown anywhere with pride.
