1976 Cadillac Eldorado
Originally advertised as the "only convertible built in America," the Cadillac Eldorado was sold as a legend-to-be and remains one today. Lifelong Cadillac owners lined up to buy the boat sized convertible cruiser and in fact, Cadillac never built a Cadillac convertible of this size and most likely will never build one again. Cars have since shrunk in size and the idea of rolling down the street in a living-room-equipped vehicle outfitted with a 500 CI motor became a thing of the past. In terms of cruisers, there are not many comparables available today, sans a few Bentley or Rolls-Royce convertibles.
This 1976 Cadillac Eldorado Fuel Injected convertible is a one owner car that has covered just 5,800 miles since new. It was originally purchased in Hackensack, NJ where is was used as a very occasional cruiser and remained there until the owner moved to California, where the car has since resided for over 25 years. The car is beautiful and has been maintained as a collector piece since new by its one particular owner, always serviced by Cadillac and always garage kept. Accompanying the car are all the original documents that the vehicle was delivered with when the car was new, including all of the operational manuals, the original dealer invoice, the original window sticker, two letters from the sale person to the owner, etc... The original salesman, by the name of Bob Potter, was famous for his customer service and upon customer request would be happy to "Potterize" your Cadillac - a process which involved driving your car for a two week period, critiquing the car, and then running it through the service shop again before final delivery to the customer.
Finished in Innsbruck Blue over a beautifully kept interior, the car is in fine cosmetic condition and features an interior that has been cared for to a point where it almost appears to be new. The leather in soft, the trim and door panels are in excellent condition, the carpeting shows very little wear, and even the top is original to the vehicle. There is one tiny tear on the passenger side, but the top is so nice, it would be a shame to replace. The steering wheel is totally crack free as is the dash, and the pedals have clearly seen little use. The engine compartment has never been touched and stands in very nice condition. It probably doesn't look much different than and engine compartment that is just few years old. In the trunk sits the original spare, tire tools and the parade boots.
The vehicle is in excellent running and driving condition and is in need of nothing but a working clock. To find a 1976 Cadillac in this condition and mileage is a rare occurrence, but to find a fuel injected model is even rarer.
