The 1956 Cadillac Fleetwood 60 Special had a different body style to other 1956 Cadillac models like the Eldorado, DeVille and other Fleetwood models.
There is a second video below of a 56 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible, is well worth a look too.
A good description of the Fleetwood is explained in the first video, and how to determine the body style and year.
This 1956 Cadillac Fleetwood 60 Special to use its official factory description is a truly beautiful car in top original condition.
I am picking there would be very few around in condition like this.
The mileage shows 27976 and looking closely at the condition of the drivers seat is possibly 127976, but regardless this is a car that has been exceptionally well looked after, and it shows.
To finish this video come for a short drive on the road and appreciate a car from a different era to today.
Something people my age get a thrill out of as we were just getting into owning cars at about this time buying mostly late 30’s and 40’s models, and would drool over the new cars of the late 50’s as they came into the showrooms.
Would love to have this beauty parked in my garage.
Special thank you to Rodney Racer, photos are video screen shots.
If I could have this one too I would be quite happy to build the garage bigger for it.
Thank you to Ramblin Around for spying this beauty.
As a comparison with another 1956 Cadillac, this Eldorado Biarritz Convertible is in equally beautiful condition have had an off frame restoration done to a very high standard, as you will see.
The Biarritz Convertible is quite rare as only 2150 of these were made in 1956, so full marks to the owner for putting in the time and the dollars in restoring this car to its original glory.
Moving the clock forward say 40 or 50 years I often wonder where will cars like these two Cadillacs be?
Will more auto museums be set up, will it be owned by a collector and perhaps never be on the road or seen at a show.
Worse still will gas as we know it still be available, and at what price so it can be driven on the road?
If a car iscontours condition then it may be restricted to being trailered, not driven but still be seen.
