Classic American car owners know that Farland Classic Restoration is the name when it comes to iconic restorations. After all, Jack’s Father owned a Chrysler Dealership in downtown Denver throughout the 1950s and 60s.
Throughout the 1950s Cadillac would develop their cars from year to year, making many unique one-year-only cars. This is exactly that, a 1958 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible, one of only 1,800 produced for the 1958 model year. Key features to 1958 include the four in-line headlights and smaller fins when compared with a 59’. This one was recently purchased by the current owner, who found a few areas that needed some attention. When it first came in, the Cadillac had modified gauges and some dashboard issues. Keith quickly cleaned the wiring issues and got the refitted gauges pulled back out. Now we’ve begun to pull the massive chrome rear wheel covers and found a bit of rust hiding out underneath. We’ve meticulously removed the small chrome trim pieces from around the area as we continue to work on the rear quarter panel and the last few pieces to this Cadillac.
