1970 Cadillac Eldorado Coupe
1970 Cadillac Eldorado Coupe
Let's look into the loving lumbering sign of success on the big Cadillac Eldorado, and some of its interesting facts….1: The Cadillac Eldorado was the first American car with quad headlamps, 2: It was once one of the most expensive and opulent cars in the world…even costing more than the comparable year Rolls Royce, 3: It was the only American convertible available for 8 years, 4: It had the largest ever production V8 engine, a displacement of 500ci! And it was front wheel drive...so successful as a matter of fact that Hotwheels even included a custom Eldorado in their first year lineup.
For consignment, a low mileage (32,262 original miles) California car which was lovingly owned and cared for by a collector the past 40 years. You are viewing an all original car, with consignor stated original paint, drivetrain, interior, and paperwork to go along just to prove all of it. There are 4 new American Classic tires, but all else is factory original.
Gas crisis? We don't need no stinking gas crisis, we will build it even bigger, and allow it to drive on regular gas!!! This straight steel slabbed sided car, which pays very close attention to its gaps and pampers its chrome trimmings is definitely going to be the belle of the ball. A V shaped massive grille with matching hood atop, dual headlights on either side and cathedral turn signal and cornering lights at the front and rear edges, you are driving around in a 3 bedroom apartment on wheels. Trimmings for the wheel well surrounds, rockers and a fine trim spear in mid section with bumped out rear quarter, this car bleeds class. A pristine white padded vinyl top covering the B pillar, allows your famous passengers to remain anonymous while they are whisked down the superhighways and byways of the country. Nottingham Green Firemist in beautiful factory condition covers all these steel panels, and it is miles deep and factory applied….in 1970! Badging all looks great, and big dish wheel covers cover thin whites all around. Bringing up the rear are sleek sloped thin vertical taillights, which are cradled below by a curving upward bumper, and more parking lighten within this bumper. Just beautiful.
A swing of the door and it's a lot like opening a well balanced safe door! Heavy, but easy to do. On the doors are power controls, wiper switches, chromed panels, white molded vinyl, deep green carpet and trimmed wood appliqué panels. Inside dual wide white leather benches, the front being split and rear solid, showing very slightly detectable wear, tuck and roll inserts, finely aged leather looking fab. These sport plenty of power adjustments and have a fold down center armrest. The standard square and rectangle dash courtesy of GM is in front and it utilizes black and wood appliqué intermixing for its finishes. Said dash has the trappings of a high optioned car in the form of climate control, AM/FM/stereo, A/C, power steering, power brakes, and all very clean. Green pristine carpet floods the floors, and a tight white headliner is above all this pampering.
A 500ci V8, which is original to the car, is very clean and neatly slipped into a full on original condition engine bay. It's topped with a 4-barrel carburetor and backed up by a TH425 3-speed automatic transmission. On front is a 3.07 drive axle configuration. All is very well maintained and looks nearly showroom.
Some slight patina underneath, but mostly straight rust free steel structure for the floorpans, toe kicks and rockers as well as the framework. With front wheel drive, it's really very simple, clean, never ending panels due to no driveshaft interruptions. Torsion bar front suspension, and leaf spring rear suspension provide the beautiful smooth ride, and for stopping this car utilizes power disc brakes for the front, and power drums for the back.
She started with a turn of the key and ran beautifully. A smooooooth cruise, good tight steering, and straight braking. With the 500 cubes it does not take too much time to get to cruising speed, and the transmission shifts smoothly on the way there. All functions were working beautifully save for the clock.
Like a new shiny Jade ring this example of steel luxury and styling from 1970 when cars were built for status and it was measured by the inch. Great shape all over, a nice example of big car style, all buttoned up under the laurel wreath and crest sprung hood ornament.
