Blue · 425 CID V8 · 35,490 miles
With only 35,490 original miles on this cool 1977 Cadillac Eldorado. She has recently been painted and repaired. With a new dash and new tires. This is a fantastic fifth generation Cadillac. Powered by a 425 V8, backed by a smooth shifting automatic. The Cadillac Eldorado is a personal luxury car that was manufactured and marketed by Cadillac from 1953 to 2002 over ten generations. The Eldorado was at or near the top of the Cadillac line during early model years. The original 1953 Eldorado convertible and the Eldorado Brougham models of 1957 1960 were the most expensive models that Cadillac offered those years, and the Eldorado was never less than second in price after the Cadillac Series 75 until 1966. Eldorados carried the Fleetwood designation from 1965 through 1972, and was a modern revival of the pre-war Cadillac V-12 and Cadillac V16 roadsters and convertibles. In 1977 the Eldorado received a new grille with a finer crosshatch pattern. The convertible was dropped (although Custom Coach of Lima, Ohio converted a few new 1977 and 1978s Eldorados into coach convertibles using salvaged parts from earlier models). The 8.2L V8 of 1970 76 gave way to a new 7L V8 with 180 HP. For the first time in 1977 all GM E-body cars were front-wheel drive, as the Riviera underwent a two-year hiatus before joining them in 1979. 1977 was Cadillacs 75th Anniversary, and would be one of the biggest years for change in the divisions history. Every single standard car was redesigned, restyled, and reconfigured to meet the demands of the time. Consumers were looking for smaller, more fuel-efficient cars, but didnt want to give up any of the interior room, luxuries, or amenities to which they were accustomed. And Cadillac met those needs. When compared to the 1976 models, the new 1977 Cadillacs were eight to 12 inches shorter overall, and the new bodies were 3.5 inches narrower, but sacrificed virtually nothing when it came to interior space. The average weight reduction per car came in at more than 950 pounds. Computers were used to create designs that would reduce weight while maintaining a strong body, and new lightweight materials were substituted wherever possible.
