In 1957 Dwight Eisenhower was in the White House, Sputnik orbited planet Earth and Elvis Presley appeared on the Ed Sullivan show for the third and what would be last time. Presley also owned a new 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz, the car that marked the pinnacle of automotive ownership for many Americans. At over $7,000, it was achievable for the individual who had attained personal success. Someone like Elvis, climbing their way up the ladder and had the desire to reward themselves with the best that money could buy. It spoke to that success with vast amounts of chrome, impressive highway-devouring performance, and styling that only Harley Earl's studio could have dreamt up.
