Known History

 

Everything about this instant classic screams for attention...from its football field-like 224-inch length, to the gigantic 500 cubic inch V-8 under the hood, to the impeccably installed white leather interior, to the incredibly sophisticated $6,000 audio and video system---including a DVD screen in the rear view mirror---you won't be able to drive this 1976 Cadillac Eldorado convertible down any street without being noticed.

 

 

 

Proclaimed at the time to be the "last of its breeed", Cadillac (and GM) wanted to exit the convertible business in grandiose fashion, and the result is this beauty. At the time, in fact, the Eldorado was the only American-built convertible on the market, and with waning sales due to an increased popularity of hardtop models and air conditioning use, it was decided by GM's top brass that they would leave the drop top production for good.

 

 

 

This particular car has had but three owners in its life, with our current consigner having had the car for 10 years.  Its transmission was rebulit approximately 5k miles ago, and overall the drivetrain starts up effortless and moves down the road without issue.  The interior was redone two years ago, along with the convertible top, and both are in excellent condition.  And of course it is equipped with the aforementioned audio-visual system, estimated to have cost more than $6k by the current owner, and it includes a Pioneer DVD and CD plyer, three 12" Alpine subwoofers, four additional 6x9 Alpine speakers, an Alpine V12 amplifier and yes, the DVD can be viewed  through a screen on the rear view mirror!

 

 

 

Hopefully, though, you will only test that feature out while parked with the top down and the stars ablaze above you.
