1985 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz
Originally derived from “El Hombre Dorado” meaning man in gold, this king's coronation included him being covered in gold dust, then submerged into a sacred river. The story then changed to “Lost City of Gold” which fascinated the Spanish explorers for centuries, although all to no avail. Finally in the early 1900's, after many attempts, the story was realized as myth, and trying to find the King's lost civilization or his city were given up on.
Cadillac yellow beige with stainless steel roof, and yellow beige landau top, envelope this pristine edition of this 1985 Biarritz. 90,985 original miles on this prize winning AACA car, it has been cared for, and pampered.
This meticulously cared for car displays a good exterior, showing some scratching and marring can be 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 yellow beige heavily padded landau vinyl top, accented with “opera” lights. Fit and finish are fair, and body is solid. Cadillac spoked wheel covers add to the overall “bling “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 fair condition, and adjustable up and down. Headliner is free of any blemishes, and in 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 shows some staining. 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 have some minor leaking and a few signs of surface rusting.
