1973 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible
Convertible Car for sale in Novato, California 94949
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.
Classic Car Overview
Overall good shape, runs well. 53,000 miles on odometer (bought it from someone who didn't know if the odometer had turned or not).
All new: suspension, front drive train, tires, assembly
Near-new: convertible top, leather upholstery
Needs attention: Slow transmission fluid leak. Though it doesn't affect driveability, you'll want to look into it for peace of mind.
Path to "perfect": Minor body work, minor mechanical fixes (e.g. dashboard clock), a good paint job and a love of restoration.
I bought this car because it was a piece of Americana that would make driving more fun and coax out my inner mechanic. The car has, indeed been fun to drive, especially on the gently curving roads in the surrounding countryside (My wife calls it "the rolling couch").
Alas, after putting thousands into basic soundness, I realized that I didn't have the heart (or resources) to turn this into the Eldo of my dreams. You might be that person, but If you just want to enjoy the thrill of a smooth ride on a beautiful day with the top down, this is the perfect ride.
