The historical documentation for this Cadillac is excellent. This Cadillac was originally sold at a cost of $7,288.34 We have multiple bills of sale, a letter from the dealership the car sold at in Tucson, Arizona, along with much more documentation.
1956 would be another banner year for Cadillac sales, moving them up a full position to number 9 in the American automobile marketplace. Despite an all-new Lincoln, and Imperial, Cadillac remained America's luxury sales leader by far.
This beautiful Cadillac showcases its original colors of Emerald Green & Alpine White.
The 1956 Cadillac boasted a fresh new grille design, this car featuring the optional gold-plated grille assembly with Cadillac script.
Behind the grille resides the powerful 365 cubic inch V8. This engine was bolstered for '56 with increased displacement. You are looking at the optional, top horsepower engine, normally found in the Eldorado. This 356 was fitted with dual Carter 4bbl. carburetors for an increase in horsepower to 305 @ 4700rpm (up from 285HP @ 4600rpm in the standard engine).
These dual 4bbl. Carter carburetors are accompanied by the very rare factory batwing air cleaner assembly, intact throughout.
