THE CADILLAC ELDORADO

When Cadillac announced that 1976 would be the last year of the Convertible Cadillacs, there was an instant increase in demand, and production went up by 156% compared to the year before. The Convertible was reintroduced in 1984 but it never became the same automotive powerhouse as the final year of the original Eldorado Convertibles.

The perfect long-hood/short deck proportions belie the Eldorado's 224-inch length, and under the car's massive hood is an equally-massive 500ci V-8 that powers the last year Cadillac Convertibles. GM's innovative front-wheel drive system, which paired a classic Hydra-Matic TH400 transmission with a planetary gearbox, turned out to be sturdy enough to drive the 12,500lb GMC Motorhome of 1973-1978.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

An iconic '70s design combined with a massive power plant, the Cadillac offered here is a very original example of the final year of the Eldorado Convertible. Produced at the Detroit-based Cadillac plant, the car was presented in a lovely livery of the classic Cotillion White with a dark blue-green convertible top. The interior was specified with the desirable, antique dark Firethorn leather, and a plethora of extra equipment was fitted to ensure comfortable driving for the lucky owner.

Treated with six-way adjustable comfort seats, this Cadillac can arguably be considered to be one of the smoothest rides around. Documented by the car's cowl tag, it can also be confirmed that this Eldorado Convertible had the cruise control option as well as Guide-matic headlight control installed. Undoubtedly, this is an excellent chance to acquire one of the most iconic American cars from the 1970s.
