Classic Car Overview

ORIGINAL BLUE EXTERIOR PAINT & MATCHING LEATHER INTERIOR425 CI CADILLAC V-8/AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONLOADED WITH FEATURES & OPTIONS INCLUDING A/CORIGINAL ORDER FORM, WINDOW STICKER, OWNERS MANUALINCLUDES ORIGINAL WARRANTY BOOKLETRECENT MAJOR SERVICE AND NEW COKER TIRES As one of the final expressions of Bill Mitchells time as head of GMs styling studios, a position he held since he was Harley Earls handpicked successor in 1958, the final big Cadillac Fleetwood Eldorado of the 1970s never fails to draw admirers today. Continuing the basic styling theme introduced for 1971 but updated with blade-type front fenders, quad rectangular headlamps, and other revisions, the Eldorado was a huge sales success and stands as a landmark of GM design. Given its top-of-the-line stature, the Eldorados mechanical specifications were sophisticated, including a high-torque Cadillac V-8 engine 425 CI for 1977-78, front-wheel drive (introduced for 1967), 4-wheel disc brakes. Luxury features were many and most were standard. Priced more than $11,000 when new, the 1978 Eldorado truly marks the end of an era for American automobiles, which were rapidly downsized at the time.This 1978 Cadillac Eldorado coupe is a very attractive example from the last model year for these American icons. It was ordered in Virginia by the original owner in December 1977 with a long list of features and options specified, including Columbia Blue paint, a white vinyl rear roof covering, Light Blue leather upholstery, air conditioning, and much more. As offered for sale, the Eldorado is a highly attractive, original car that retains nearly all of its factory-original paint finish and interior. Recent attention includes a major service, chassis alignment, and installation of a new set of correct style Coker tires. Documents are excellent and include the original buyers order form completed at the selling dealer, the original Cadillac window sticker, and a copy of the original title, plus the factory-issued owners manual, and warranty and consumer information booklets. Offered in highly attractive condition, this 1978 Cadillac Eldorado is an enjoyable example of the last full-size models. Call us today to see it for yourself and get ready for touring enjoyment!
