1976 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible
The 1976 Cadillac Convertibles were considered instant collector's items as 1976 was the last year for a production convertible, and speculators soon drove prices sky high. Once factory production ended and dealer supply was depleted, prices jumped to two or three times the manufacturer's suggested retail price of $11,049. Quite a few cars were purchased and put into storage immediately. One dealer reported a customer had their new car loaded onto a flatbed right there on the car lot and was carefully covered to be transported to a heated, air conditioned, and humidity-controlled garage for long-term storage. More than just a few people did this, so low mileage original examples were quite plentiful, which brought prices down dramatically after just a few years. For rarity, the 1975 model convertibles are scarcer, but they don't have that "final convertible" mystique surrounding them.
Offered is a project 1976 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible. The former owner passed away while the restoration was in progress. Painted in white with white leather interior and blue trim and matching blue convertible top, the Eldorado shows 68,359 miles on the odometer. It appears that most of the original parts are present. Comes with a parade boot and tonneau cover. It does run and drive. Although rough in its current state, the car can be purchased at a price below what a parts car would warrant.
