1991 Cadillac Eldorado Touring Coupe
The origins of El Dorado lie deep in South America. And like all enduring legends, the tale of El Dorado contains some scraps of truth. When Spanish explorers reached South America in the early 16th century, they heard stories about a tribe of natives high in the Andes mountains in what is now Colombia. When a new chieftain rose to power, his rule began with a ceremony at Lake Guatavita. Accounts of the ceremony vary, but they consistently say the new ruler was covered with gold dust, and that gold and precious jewels were thrown into the lake to appease a god that lived underwater.
Seen in our hallowed halls of Classic Auto Mall we have a 1991 Eldorado with a mere 13,982 original miles. WIth all the trappings associated with a Caddy, conveniences abound, and luxury is paramount in the materials that go into this car. The best technology available can be seen in the blue LCD readouts, a steering wheel airbag, and all pushbutton controls.
Beautiful pristine laser straight steel panels come together to form the square design exterior of this luxury automobile. These are all bathed in Bright Red and are highlighted by a below the belt line trim rail, which extends around and into the body matching neoprene bumpers. A clean egg crate style grille is up front and is flanked on either side by dual rectangular headlights. The power sunroof (Astro-roof) is seen on top, and dual thin rectangular chromed exhaust tips hang below the bumper. 15-inch Cadillac badged wheels are noted on all 4 corners.
Beechwood would be your contrasting interior color, and it is in the form of luxurious leather covered wide dual front bucket seats with a padded center armrest in between, and a couch like rear bench. Both driver and passenger seats are power, and with wide side bolsters tend to grab you when you sit down. Continuing up to the square and rectangle design dash we see a shift lever in a sea of wood appliqué. This continues on the dash front which houses and all digital gauge cluster, and various and sundry controls. The dash is excellent, very clean and well cared for as is the gold carpeting that floods the floors. A clean tight cloth headliner frames the Astro-roof.
Within a well preserved and slightly patina engine bay is the 4.9 Liter V8 power plant. This has electronic fuel injection, and a 4T60E 4-speed automatic transmission, with a 2.93 axle.
Slipping underneath, we notice a solid frame, floorpans and rockers environment, with just a touch of some surface rust. Floorpans still have some of the factory overspray of the exterior red on them. Since the car is front wheel drive, there is a lack of a drive shaft making its way rearward. Independent coil springs suspension for the front, and the rear is air suspension. Power disc brakes are all around, and this completes our tour of the underneath.
With the low mileage one would expect this car to start right up, and it did. We would also expect everything to work, and it did. It ran beautifully, provided a smooth ride, and had good acceleration and cruising. Only one thing it did not, and that is disappoint on the luxury end.
Low miles, beautiful paint, and a plethora of conveniences and we are skating with the haves, and if I power the windows closed, and crank up the Delco Bose sound system, it's very easy to forget about the have nots.
