1976 Cadillac Eldorado
1976 Cadillac Eldorado
One Cadillac model came equipped with whiskey glasses—in true Cadillac luxury fashion. The 1957 Eldorado Brougham represented the American Lifestyle. It came with memory power seats, automatic locks, low profile tires, aluminum wheels, a makeup kit, and a set of magnetic whiskey glasses. It should be expected then considering the Cadillac cost double what normal cars did back then. It was the perk that came with the price, but more importantly, it was the lifestyle that was the biggest sell. The same sentiment would continue through other subsequent models, but the whiskey glasses will no longer be available.
For consignment a Caddy Eldorado, but sans whiskey glasses! Although all the luxury you would expect and technology you could have in 1976. This car presents in good condition, and has been well kept, and maintained.
Calumet Cream respray covers the massive panels on this long and wide car. Large and in charge your arrival is noted upfront with a massive bumper which forms an outward V and is topped by an egg crate style matching V grille, in chrome, this is flanked by dual rectangular (a motif iconic of the mid 70's early 80's) headlights, and vertical parking lighting, all framed in chrome surrounding trim. Turn signals are buried within the lower bumper as well as a bit of the grille which extends below the bumper. The massive hood works its way back to the passenger compartment which is covered with a Chesterfield Brown vinyl landau style roof. Standard Cadillac wheels with pristine covers are seen on all 4 corners.
A swing of the ultra-wide door reveals carved panels in wood, multiple controls (power windows, mirrors, and locks) embedded in a stainless panel above the interior door handle. Feast your eyes on the recliner like split 60/40 buckets, in Buckskin color, with tufts and padding fit for a king, and all in very nice unblemished condition. The seats are power adjustable, and are fronted by an original dash, with all the controls within the driver's easy reach. Note no hump, because of the very forward mounted engine and transverse mounted transmission. Miles of gold carpeting cover the floor and a beautiful headliner tops off the compartment. Noted in back are 2 more very comfortable back seats, which are essentially 2 large buckets within a bench which stretches from door to door.
A big 500ci V8 which produces 190hp along with the 3-speed automatic transversely mounted to avoid a hump, which shifts very smoothly and provides enough power to have you rolling comfortably down the highway.
With rustproofing sprayed on in multiple coats it's hard to know what's underneath, but assuming it was as cared for as the upper panels, it would be in good condition. Power disc brakes are upfront, and power drum on the rear are seen.
A large and in charge example of the mid 1970's idea of luxury. Damn the torpedoes when it came to any gas crisis, because we will take a 500ci engine, and bolt massive steel panels around it, and pepper it with luxury and conveniences, and you can be on your way…to the top… only in Cadillac style.
