Classic Car Overview

1976 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible The Cadillac Eldorado has always been a trend setter. The personal luxury car market segment that Cadillac created with the Eldorado was growing. The front-wheel drive version was going through its very first redesign with the 1971-1972 models. It was a completely new Fleetwood Eldorado not only in design but also in spirit. The Fleetwood Eldorado was available as a coupe and a luxury convertible replacing the DeVille convertible series. The Standard of the World was still the luxury leader. The Fleetwood Eldorado was still unmistakably Cadillac. The last Eldorado Convertible rolled off the line on April 22nd 1976, the end of the drop top era for a few bleak years. For consignment, a sizable, luxurious, convenience smattered, long smooth cruiser piece of massive Detroit iron in this 1976 Eldorado Model. Nicknamed Eleanor, this luxury cruiser was only driven by our caring consignor on sunny days and the top stayed down from May until early October, now thats a pampered 27 years of ownership! All service records and receipts from 1994 until today come with the car as well as service manuals, the original owners manual and even a 1976 Cadillac dealership brochure. Exterior Gas crisis? We dont need no stinking gas crisis, we will build it even bigger, and allow it to drive on regular gas!!! And this straight steel slabbed sided car which pays very close attention to its gaps and pampers its chrome trimmings is definitely going to be the belle of the ball. A V shaped massive grille with matching hood atop, dual headlights on either side and cathedral turn signal and cornering lights at the front and rear edges, you are driving around in a 3 bedroom apartment on wheels. Trimming for the wheel well surrounds, rockers, and a fine trim spear in mid-section with exceedingly long rear quarter and deck. This car bleeds class. A white canvas convertible top with a rear glass window, allows for your potential famous passengers to remain in total comfort while they are whisked down the superhighways and byways of the country. Crystal Blue Firemist in beautiful condition covers all these steel panels, and it is miles deep and very nicely applied, even the prone to cracking filler panels are in great shape. The only frown on the body is that there is some rust bubbling starting on the passengers side rear quarter panel. Badging all looks great, as does chrome which remains in like new condition throughout, and standard issue Cadillac wheel covers adron the steel wheels and are wrapped in wide whites on all 4 corners. Interior A swing of the door and its a lot like opening a well-balanced safe door! Heavy, but easy to do. On the doors are power controls, chromed panels, white stitched leather, vinyl, and blue carpeted lowers for the doors. A peppering of wood appliqu is also seen on these door panels. Inside dual ultra-wide white leather buckets, showing some creases, slight soiling, and a tear on the drivers upper section, sport plenty of power adjustments, and are large enough to accommodate a 3rd front row passenger. In the back, a wide bench matching the front in design setup stretches from side to side. The standard square and rectangle dash courtesy GM is in front and has the trappings of a high optioned car in the form of auto dimming headlights, cruise control, climate control, AM/FM/Stereo with an 8-track player, A/C, power steering, power brakes, and all very clean. The original 3 spoke steering wheel with a faux leather wrap fronts this original looking dash. Blue carpet floods the floors and shows some fading and staining, especially at the entry points. Drivetrain A 500ci V8 engine fits nicely into the large engine bay with a little patina present. A 4bbl carburetor feeds the massive engine its mixture of fossils and air and a TH425 automatic transmission is on back. 2.73 are the gears for the final drive ratio. All receipts and detailed information are available for your inspection and date back to 1994. Undercarriage Unrestored but solid is the presentation for the undercarriage. The frame is sound and sturdy as are the floor pans which are showing some minor surface rust in a few places but nothing remarkable. Independent torsion bars for the front suspension, and a 4 link with coil springs are on back. Power disc brakes are on all 4 corners to bring this car to a halt with ease. Single exhaust sends spent gasses out the back of the car and we note that the catalytic is showing some heavy rust to its outer shell. Drive-Ability She started with a turn of the key and ran beautifully. A smooooooth cruise, good tight steering and straight braking. With the 500 cubes it does not take too much time to get to cruising speed, and the transmission shifts smoothly on the way there. All functions were working beautifully save for radio, cruise control, and A/C. We did note some extra wind noise when driving with the top up as there are a few missing window seals otherwise all was good. A large and in charge example of the mid 1970s idea of luxury. Damn the torpedoes when it comes to any gas crisis, because we will take a 500ci engine, and bolt massive steel panels around it, and pepper it with luxury and conveniences, and you can be on your way...to the top... only in Cadillac style.
