The 390 CI V-8 powering the division’s offerings was, apart from increased displacement and more sophisticated breathing, essentially unchanged from the 331 CI version designed by engineers Ed Cole and Harry Barr for the 1949 Cadillac. Cole and Barr, who also teamed up to design the legendary small-block V-8 for Chevrolet, had devised what one writer called “the soundest and most far-sighted concept in Cadillac history.” Rebuilt as part of the car’s restoration, that milestone V-8 engine powers this 1962 Eldorado Biarritz Convertible in concert with another enduring Cadillac engineering achievement, the Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. It features rebuilt air conditioning, power steering, brakes and windows, new glass, Autronic Eye headlight dimmer and original-style dual-stripe whitewall tires. A remote CD player provides passenger entertainment, but this classic Biarritz can also announce its presence with a choice of either its Chrysler “ahooga” air horn or the Federal Q “Firechief” Coaster siren beneath the hood.
