I have been exchanging emails with Reg from Australia who has a sweet 1956 Cadillac that I am sure our members would love to see. Below is our emails and some pictures of this great Cadillac.
I think I might qualify as one of your most distant members all the way from Perth Western Australia. The car below I brought from Lee Wolf of Vintage Motor Cars in Ohio, yes on the internet, sight unseen and a eight week wait. But it turned out to be exactly what Lee said it would be. They were so good to do business with and I felt safe and sure dealing with them every step of the way.
I was surprised when contacted by the Cadillac Survivors Club that there are only 84 of the 1956 EBs on there list an 50 of them are located outside of America. Also did you know that Australians are importing over 11,000 classic cars from the US each year. Most common is the Mustang.
This is my first Cadillac and I love it so does everyone I pass along the way. From young children to old grandmars , bikies and everybody else. It is great to drive so smooth and quite. Just great on a warm summers night with family and friends.
Keep up the great work and let me know if you would like a few more photos.
I have attached a few more photos not sure what size image you wanted so if you want full size just let me know.The car in the last photo is a 1935 Bentley Derby I drove this car from Beijing to Paris in the Peking to Paris Rally October 2010. This is what got me hooked on old cars, the trip was 10,000 miles and the old Bentley never missed a beat.
Not one breakdown in the whole trip.
This is the link to my Ten Thousand Miles In ten minutes video on YouTube.
This is the chassis number for my car 5662009752 I can track it back to a RM Auction 13 March 2010. I would love to hear from anyone who knows anything about this cars history,
Does it get any better than this?
That is exactly what I have been think since Reg started sending me the pictures. I love convertibles and that color is amazing.
I’m the keeper of the 1956 Eldorado Biarritz Survivor roster. This car is listed on the roster and can be found here
Feel free to look around the site.
Thanks for the link, I am sure it will help Reg out. I sent it to him in an email also, just in case he misses this post.
