1985 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz
The Eldorado also refers to El Dorado, the mythical South American "Lost City of Gold" that fascinated Spanish explorers. This was the last year of the 8th edition of the Cadillac Eldorado. Powered by a fuel injected 4.1-liter V8 coupled to a 4-speed automatic transmission with electronic overdrive, this drivetrain provided power, as well as economy. Luxury was no longer defined by sheer size, but comfort, drivability, and meeting the EPA emission standards.
In October of 1985 this car was purchased new from Titus Cadillac, Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. Since this time only 48,760 miles were clocked.
This meticulously cared for car displays a beautiful exterior finish, Dark Sandstone Metallic. Minimal scratching or marring is seen. This Biarritz edition features a brushed stainless-steel roof covering the front passenger compartment... A styling cue taken from the 1957/58 Eldorado Brougham. The rear half of the roof is covered with a Dark Sandstone heavily padded landau vinyl top, accented with “opera” lights. Fit and finish is straight and true. Cadillac spoked wheel covers add to the overall “glitz” of the vehicle.
The interior features “pillowed” style “tufted” leather seating in tan finish. All seating shows normal wear for age. Dash and instrumentation is original, and no chips or cracks are evident on dash. The steering wheel is in good condition, and adjustable up and down. Headliner is free of any blemishes, and in very good condition with no fading or tears. The car is equipped with power steering, power brakes, power driver seat, climate control, cruise control, power windows, power mirrors, and an AM/FM Cassette player. The plush beige carpeting throughout, is in generally clean and unstained condition. All power options are operational.
A 4.1-liter V8 powers a 4-speed plus electronic overdrive transmission, that offers accelerating power as well as maintaining fuel efficiency on long trips. An underside view shows drivetrain to be leak free, and no signs of rusting.
Documentation and Extra Items
The vehicle documentation includes the original build sheet, service and owner's manuals, Gold Key cassette, and member card. A spare tire and jack are neatly camouflaged in the trunk with custom carpet overlays. A fine example of a retro 80's styling, combined with a Luxury theme.
Stop by to give this a look, and you can pop in your Flock of Seagulls cassette, and cruise in “gnarly” style!
