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 had 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.
Finished in Firethorn Metallic over a Red interior, this 1976 Cadillac Eldorado has traveled just over 13,800 miles and had 4 owners since new .The body of the car is in excellent condition and has benefited from lifelong garage storage and fair-weather driving. There has never been any active rust on the car so the panels remain free from unsightly repairs due to corrosion. The Eldorado has all original glass which is in wonderful condition and the front windshield has very few marks from road debris. The chrome on the Eldorado is original and has been well kept and the trim is excellent as well. The top on the car is the original convertible top and its high quality speaks to how well this Cadillac has been kept throughout the years.
The car has been upgraded with Texas wire wheels, and big white walls from Coker Classics. It also has a high end Stereo with Audison components speakers, a Kenwood head unit in the glove box with remote, and a sub-woofer and amplifier in the back.
Open the doors of the Eldorado and it’s like stepping back in time. The leather is still soft and supple and the often damaged door panels are crack free. The dash does not have any sun damage and the controls exhibit very little wear. The back seat looks like it has never been used and the steering wheel is free of cracks.
The car has just been fully serviced with all fresh fluids, cold A/C and is ready to cruise.
For the collector looking for a wonderfully cared for Eldorado finished in the most desirable of color combinations, this Eldo has your name on it.
