Cadillac Eldorado Models & History 1962

The ’62 Biarritz was somewhat more distinctive, thanks to its thin upper bodyside moldings, but it was far from striking or individual. Production remained at 1450 units, exactly the same as the year before, while the division’s overall production rose substantially.
