1966 Cadillac Eldorado
Car for sale by Specialty Sales Classics in Fairfield, California 94533
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.

Sensational 1966 Cadillac Eldorado 2 Door Convertible
The next amazing classic up for grabs in our Fairfield showroom is this gorgeous 1966 Cadillac Eldorado 2 Door Convertible with a beautiful Cape Ivory exterior paint and a matching Ivory leather interior. The current owner informs us that you’ll find the factory 429 cid V-8 engine under the hood with the correct automatic transmission, and this survivor is fully factory loaded with power steering, power brakes, dual backup lights, dual speed wipers, power windows and a power top, factory air conditioning and the original AM/FM radio. This one is in fantastic overall condition as well and it is ready to be enjoyed immediately with what is believed to be an original 81,000 lifetime miles.
Highly Original, Highly Optioned & Driven 81,856 Lifetime Miles
Serious collectors know that 1966 was the final year of production for the Fleetwood Eldorado Convertible with only 2,250 total produced. This example in Cape Ivory (code 40-1) was one of the rarest colors available and looks fantastic with the factory Ivory leather interior. Given that this classic is also fully loaded from top to bottom, this is a sensationally rare Edorado with only a handful of comparable investment-grade examples in existence.
The current owner informs us that this 1966 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible has been with four lifetime owners with a large part of its life spent in the warm Nevada desert. It was fully restored once decades ago to a very high level and it still shows far above the typical driver quality, with sleek body lines and the correct factory-color paint with only minor imperfections. The interior is also gorgeous with very nicely kept interior seating and very clean carpeting, dashboard and consoles- it almost feels like a step back in time.
Additionally, this 1966 Cadillac Eldorado Roadster is a true joy to drive on the open road with smooth handling and very nice acceleration. The factory suspension is perhaps the most impressive because this classic luxury roadster simple glides down the road at highway speeds. It is a very impressive original example with exactly the right types of high-end refinement serious collectors look for.
One of a Handful Produced in the Desirable 1966 Model Year
Overall, this 1966 Cadillac Eldorado 2 Door Convertible is a rare and highly desirable roadster that has been beautifully cared for over the last 50+ years. Given its outstanding condition with most of the original factory parts and accessories still in place, the asking price is likely too conservative for such a sought-after collectible.
