The 1976 Cadillac Eldorado was the end of a legend, and this one has been kept to deliver all the best vintage style and V8 power for an affordable price.
1976 shut the door on the traditional American convertible that was big, roomy, and floated over the road in complete comfort. That legacy is why a Caddy like this is still in such complete condition even as it's approaching its 45th birthday. The lower fenders on these classics are notorious for falling victim to unseen curbs, but this one still has all the straight lines and firm creases that it was given at the Detroit factory. Take a look at the plastic panels that fill the area between the metal body and the front and rear marker lights. These wouldn't have survived nearly four decades without a loving caretaker. The Innsbruck Blue is a great factory color for a car like this. It has the delicate look you want in a luxury machine, and it still has a good gloss in the sunshine. Plus, white full pinstriping package goes with the whitewall tires and white rub strips. And it all coordinates with the bright white convertible top for a very thought total presentation.
With the flip of a switch the top powers down to reveal a full sea of blue inside. This combines with the exterior blue to remind you that the best classics love good color coordination. The extra wide benches have seatbelts for six people, and while some of this has shown some use over the years, it's complete and comfy presentation keeps this a quality cruiser. Plus, the interior has the kind of luxury that keeps them exceptionally desirable today. These are the features that you would even want on a brand new car, such as power windows, power locks, power seat, cruise control, tilt steering wheel, a power seat, and factory air condition (will need servicing before blowing ideally cold again.) And with everything from the working courtesy lights, to the smooth dash with wood-like trim are all show that this Caddy has been treated with respect over the years.
Cadillac promoted this as the last American convertible. They did eventually return the ragtops, but they would never get a big V8 like the monstrous 500 cubic-inch motor that's under the hood. Emissions regulations of that era had taken out some of the horsepower, but this Caddy has no trouble moving because it still makes about as much torque as a modern V8 Chevy truck! The cruising attitude is heightened by a smooth-shifting three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with discs at all four corners - the first and only year for this feature on Eldorado convertibles. The suspension in this car must be experienced. You would think Cadillacs from this era are referred to as boats because of their size, but after you drive it, you'll swear it's because how it floats down the road.
Complete with owner's manual, this legend is big on space, big on torque, and big on luxury. The only thing small about this Caddy is the price. Call now!
