This 1984 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz convertible is one of only 3300 manufactured that year, the first Cadillac convertible since the 1976 Eldorado. With a staggering price tag of $31,286, which was nearly three times the cost of a '76 Eldo convertible and nearly $11 grand more than the base Eldorado coupe, it was truly the top of the line. But it was much more than a coupe with the roof chopped off. Standard features included a glass rear window, rear quarter windows that powered down with the top, a finished headliner, as well as custom button-tufted interior, as well as heavy reinforcements on the chassis to compensate for the missing roof structure. Today, their values are starting to creep upwards as Cadillac enthusiasts realize that these are not only very nice cars to drive, but definitely worthy of collecting thanks to their quality and rarity. This particular '84 Eldorado convertible is an extremely clean southern car that remains in highly original condition. It shows just 67,225 miles, which is about 2500 miles a year, and the care it has received all its life is obvious. The Cotillion White paint, which is one of three available colors in 1984, is as the factory applied it, which should give you a good idea of how nicely preserved this car really is. Still shiny, it shows evidence of regular washing and waxing, and has apparently never seen salt or snow. Despite the soft top, the doors open and close nicely and fit well, suggesting that the chassis reinforcements were properly designed. Features unique to the Biarritz convertibles include the wide bright accent trim that stretches from the convertible top well to the tip of the front fenders, deck lid accent striping, and, of course, the Biarritz nameplates. The white convertible top features a glass rear window, and remains in very good condition, folding into its well with the touch of a button. And unlike many aftermarket convertible conversions, the profile of the top in the upright position nearly matches that of the hardtop. The Biarritz convertible also received special multi-button tufted leather seats, which remain in excellent condition. The seats show minimal wear with no splits or tears, and the slight difference in color between the seating surfaces and the rest of the seat is due to Cadillac using genuine leather only for the seating surfaces and vinyl for the rest-obviously the two materials age differently. Deep pile carpets add a luxury feel, and remain in good condition, protected by a set of matching floor mats from new. A leather-wrapped steering wheel was part of the Biarritz package as well, and unlike many convertibles from sunny climates, it remains supple and unblemished. Gauges are all functional (including the trip computer), the electronic climate control works as it should, and the original stereo system has been replaced with a modern JVC AM/FM/CD system that enhances the open-air driving experience. Power is delivered to the front wheels by an aluminum 4.1 liter V8 with digital fuel injection. It delivers a reasonable 135 horsepower and 200 pounds of torque, which, thanks to a snappy 4-speed automatic transmission, makes it a comfortable cruiser that will happily eat up the miles and still delivers good fuel economy. The engine bay is extremely clean, showing proper maintenance and that someone really cared about this car throughout its life. The chassis is similarly clean, with no rust issues and a recent single exhaust system that hushes the engine to appropriate Cadillac levels. The Eldorado also features a smooth-riding all-independent suspension with automatic load leveling in back, and 4-wheel disc brakes. Wire wheel covers were standard on the Biarritz, and it rides on a recent set of 225/70/15 Sigma Shadow whitewall radials. These really are nice cars to drive, with big car comfort and ride and good V8 torque. Unlike the older Eldorados, the ride is controlled and not floaty, and the body structure is vastly more solid. These cars are becoming increasingly difficult to find in good condition, and this highly original example is the result of careful maintenance and a lifetime of being a fair-weather toy. Welcomed at any Cadillac or AACA event, these are fine collectibles that are loaded with creature comforts and can be driven daily.
