Classic Car Overview

1978 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Originally derived from El Hombre Dorado meaning man in gold, this kings coronation included him being covered in gold dust, then submerged into a sacred river. The story then changed to Lost City of Gold which fascinated the Spanish explorers for centuries, although all to no avail. Finally in the early 1900s, after many attempts, the story was realized as myth, and trying to find the Kings lost civilization or his city were given up on. We present a 1978 Eldorado Biarritz for consignment. This car shows up in our hallways with some extra pimpin added on with a stainless trim, red pin striping, and plenty of lavish amenities that a car of this stature would have installed by the factory. Exterior Leading the way forward is the massive grille in a V shape with flanking rectangular headlights on the side and a bumper below featuring some vertical all chrome guards. Even the sides of the front of the car are adorned with vertical chrome with winged badges in black. Noted are the neoprene section between the bumper and the steel is showing some cracking, discoloration and smudging. The long, long hood has some stainless trim on the sides of the bump ups which continue to the windscreen, then around the A pillar and rearward on the sills and B pillars. Red pin striping is put on just below this trimming and a small trim spear runs from mid front wheel well to the rear well. A white landau padded vinyl top shows wear and smudging and has a vertical opera window with a vertical running light next to the window and a Biarritz badge. On the back the long trunk deck forms more vertical spaces for the taillights which have wide chrome bezels that meet up with the rear bumper. More damage to this neoprene between the bumper and the bodywork. Speaking of which all steel panels have a coating of Cotillion White paint which is showing some age with dulling. The beginning of invasive rust is seen on the seam of the landau top and bodywork for the roof. Otherwise, the car appears rust free for the remainder of the body. Large dish style wheel coverings with a white center are wrapped by medium white walls on all 4 corners. Interior Opening these well-balanced massive doors which have white vinyl mixed with some wood appliqu and a strip of red carpeting below. The armrest and sill show cracking of the vinyl and are smudged throughout. Wonderful overstuffed and square buttoned tufted leather chairs are throughout the cockpit and are fairly clean and tear free. The front seats are power adjustable. Contrasting deep red carpeting is below and it is in good condition. A sleek red plastic and wood paneled dash swoops across the front, and shows all original fixins. Including an 8 track player and a built in CB radio. A white headliner is above and shows in a slightly smudged condition. Drivetrain A big 425ci V8 with a single 4-barrel carburetor is on top. A TH425 3-speed automatic is on the back and 2.73 final drive ratio puts the power to the ground. This is a front wheel drive car so look MA! NO HUMP!! Undercarriage Some surface rust peppers various areas of the framing and suspension, but it is overall very light. Patina undercoating is the norm with engines showing oiling on the bottom end. Torsion bar front suspension, and 4 link with coil springs for the back provides the ride, and power disc brakes are all around for the stopping. Drive-Ability A quick starter, nice driver and a great comfy ride. All functions were good, although I noticed the power antenna goes up but the flops over. All else was good. Quite the white spectacle on this very large rendition of the last year for the big Caddy. This one needs some TLC for the bumper neoprene, and interior drivers door. Otherwise, its an all-functional high end large luxury land yacht ripe for the picking.
