Hi Robert,

Beautiful car.

Why are you putting the car for sale? I would never!

These cars do not belong to Robert. He is just alerting us to them. Hey Robert : what cars do you have ?  Nina, do you have any interesting cars over there in Latvia ? Daniel has some very good cars. Sometimes he tells me he has too many. I know I have too many, but I feel fortunate to have 1924 and 1927 Cadillacs.   -    Carl

The ebay ad incorrectly lists the engine as a 331ci

That engine was used from 1949 through 1955, and was superceded in 1956.

Either the owner/seller has the wrong engine installed, or does not know his/her car, or ????

 

Is this a broker listing the car?

Looks like maybe a consigner is handling the car. I wonder how long it's been sitting in a museum.  '56 Caddy experts, how does the interior look?

Looks like the engine compartment has been touched up with black spray paint also that isnt the correct interior.  The engine was a 331 (5.4 L)  Models from 1949-1956

Chris, the 331 ci engine was used only through 1955 model year as I understand the spec sheets and the Cadillac registry.

The 1956 model received the new 365 CI Engine:

1956

Facts: 8-cylinder, 90° V8, 4 x 3.63" b&s, 365 ci, overhead valves, push rod actuated, 9.75:1 compression ratio, Carter two-stage four-barrel carburetor (or Rochester 4 bbl on Eldorado), 285 BHP @ 4600 rpm,
