Cadillac fans know the significance of this car. The 1984 Eldorado Biarritz convertible represented the return of ragtop Caddys. And more than just history, this loaded V8 range-topping rolling elegance still knows how to impress today.
The short run of specialty Eldorado Biarritz convertibles is the car that ended the drop-top drought at Cadillac, and we know exactly why. These are the iconic lines of the last of the great cruising Caddys, and so it deserves an iconic convertible. The Biarritz drop-top was the most expensive car you could get from the dealer at the time - even limos cost less! So they made sure these cars lived up to the highest standard. This has just the right amount of chrome that cascades down the waterfall grille, and then naturally flows to the front bumpers, spreads to the lower valances and pools on the rear bumper. And the extra brightwork streak in the door line will always confirm to others this is a range-topping Biarritz. The good complement to this luxury is the Winter White paint. The factory-correct color has a nice gloss and shine to give this Cadillac the look of porcelain. Plus, this one also still has all its great original Cadillac styling cues from clear lenses in front, to the wire wheels with Caddy's crest logo.
While a white car with a white convertible top is impressive, it gets even better when you flip a switch and fold it down. The white leather interior harmonizes with the exterior white. Plus, the blue convertible boot cover coordinates with the exterior pinstripe and the interior carpeting and trim. The result is a thoughtful package that flows between the interior and exterior for a true premium appearance. The pillow-top seating rivals the best living rooms for comfort. Everybody has their own individual space, and the front wheel drive layout means a flat floor for limo-worthy legroom. This is loaded with the best features, like a power convertible top, cruise control, a tilt steering wheel, and an upgraded Alpine AM/FM/cassette stereo. It's especially cool to have the digital gauge package and a driver information center that goes well with Cadillac's "High Technology" engine. There are some features that need servicing, like the driver's seat, rear power window, and air conditioning (it's already upgraded to R134a.) The idea here is a complete and clean significant classic you can take home today, and the value price leaves money in your budget for any improvements you want to make down the road.
Cadillac's 4.1-liter V8 was cutting edge for its time. It utilized lightweight aluminum construction and fuel injection to give it the kind of brisk acceleration that keeps this car worthy of its Eldorado heritage. These cars are designed for all-day comfort even on the highway, and so the motor is mated to a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. The feeling on the road is that incomparable Cadillac cloud, thanks to an all-independent suspension and power steering. Four-wheel disc brakes were also standard equipment on the Eldorado, so it has better capabilities than you'd expect in a convertible with such a cushy ride.
