1985 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible
1985 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible
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.
For the first time since the famed '76 Eldorado ragtop, Cadillac offered a convertible: the new and posh Biarritz. Its rear side windows raised and lowered automatically with the power top, and it contained a glass back window. Convertible bodies came in three colors: Cotillion White, Hatteras Blue, and Autumn Maple Firemist. Each had a white diamond-grain vinyl top, glass rear window, and color-coordinated headliner. Reinforced frame rails and crossmember braces and a bolstered body structure added the necessary strength and rigidity.
Cotillion White drapes this steel paneled car and presents in good condition. A white top with little to no markings to speak of, adorns the top, and can be automatically lowered at the touch of a button for instant sunshine and wind in your hair. Fit and finish are fair, and body is solid. A stainless trim piece stretches the length of the car along the rockers and Cadillac spoked wheel covers add to the overall “bling” of the vehicle.
The interior features “pillowed” style “tufted” leather seating in wonderful red finish. Cadillac embossed logos show at the top of each seat, given we see a split front bench and a spacious back bench. All seating shows very slight wear for age. Dash and instrumentation is original, and no chips or cracks are evident on the plentiful veneered dash. Some digital displays are noted along with the usual analog. The matching red steering wheel is in good 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, digital climate control, cruise control, power windows, power mirrors, and a factory AM/FM/Cassette Symphony Sound player. The plush red carpeting throughout, is 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.
Slight surface rust is noted where undercoating has flaked off, but otherwise the undercarriage is very stable. Underside of doors show slight rust invasion as well, but otherwise unremarkable.
