This 1976 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible is the product of exceptional care, the right investments, and an overall commitment to the last true American drop-top cruiser. So as you look over everything from the awesome color combo to the A/C interior, you realize this is the one that sets the example for all others.
This car has averaged under 650 miles annually, and that means you’ve had weekend road trips that went further than this one usually does in a year! It sets the tone for the kind of cut-above car that has been treated with top-quality care. So not only is the Sable Black paint factory correct, but it also shows all the right signs of being factory original. It appears just as glossy in real life as it does in the pictures, and so it’s quite impressive for a car approaching the half-century mark. The reason for this level of preservation is because this car came out of a collection in 2020 that’s known for choosing prime cars and maintaining them to the highest standards. The sheet metal has an outstanding level of preservation, and there’s such good chrome on the bumpers that you can see the reflection of the intricate grille. You really do have the best in details, right down to the red pinstriping. It highlights the chic lines of the hood, and at the same time, gives you a preview of the bold interior.
The black roof looks clean and crisp on this Caddy, and the experience gets even better with the top down. The factory-correct Firethorn red is one of the most distinctive and premium colors you can even have. The ultra-low odometer and top care mean this whole interior is a time capsule. The leather has a smooth and supple look across its plush pleated design, and so you can see you’re in for a luxurious experience even before you sit down. This has plenty of space for family and friends to spread out, but a car like this is all about the driver. That’s why you have an individual armrest and your seat power adjusts to the ideal position. There’s a tilt/telescopic steering column, and all your controls are within easy reach. This includes the power locks, cruise control, power antenna, rear defogger, and AM/FM radio. The power windows and power convertible top mean you never have to leave the driver’s seat to go from enclosed comfort to a wind-in-your-hair experience. And the factory air conditioning is blowing cold with modern R134a refrigerant to make sure those top-down sunny days remain feeling cool.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 500 cubic-inch V8. This was the last year for this big powerhouse, and so this example makes sure its original motor is ready to be shown off. The bright blue on the valve covers, good hoses, upgraded aluminum radiator, and overall tidiness make the largest of Caddy motors also look elegant. The commitment to quality under the hood is also why the V8 fires up and runs with the kind of smoothness you really want in a Caddy. Topped with a four-barrel carburetor, this V8 makes plenty of torque to keep it an easy cruiser. This also has a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and Cadillac’s legendary supple ride. And don’t forget this was also the year that these Eldorados were upgraded to four-wheel power disc brakes.
This is the kind of classic that can lead parades, and so there’s also a hard convertible boot that comes with the sale in case a beauty queen needs to sit on top. So if you want to be outstanding in the best ways, call today!
