As noted by its accompanying window sticker, this outstanding and well-preserved 1978 Cadillac Eldorado Coupe was delivered new to Kinman Cadillac of Grand Island, Nebraska on 8 December 1977. With beautiful Mulberry Metallic paintwork over two-tone Antique Medium/Dark Mulberry Sierra Grain leather upholstery and a matching Mullberry Landau vinyl top, this Cadillac looks like little else on the road. Power is offered by a 425-cubic-inch V8 engine, routed to the front wheels by a smooth-shifting Turbo Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. Driving this car is a statement, with its occupants enjoying some of the finest amenities money could buy in its era.

In addition to its remarkable state of originality and preservation, this Eldorado, which also comes with its original dealer sheet and statement of origin, was specified from new with an incredible twenty-three factory-installed options, including a telescoping steering wheel, Twilight Sentinel auto-dimming headlamps, cruise control, Guidematic headlight control, automatic door locks, AM/FM stereo with cassette player and CB radio, rear window defogger, and power front seats. As to be expected from a top-of-the-range Cadillac, significant luxury features such as automatic climate control, power steering, and color-coded chrome disc wheels wrapped in whitewall tires came standard. I personally believe the investment potential of this iconic American classic will grow beyond your imagination and is offered to the most demanding collector, investor, or enthusiast who desires to own one of the very best!

Model History:
A nameplate typically reserved for models at or near the pinnacle of Cadillacs lineup, the Eldorado, which entered its ninth generation in 1971, continued to set the tone for General Motors finest automobiles with its immense size and exceptional luxury. As with the preceeding generation (1967-1970), the 1971 Eldorados were front wheel drive to increase interior space, eliminating the traditional driveshaft/transmission hump of a traditional rear wheel drive vehicle. This, combined with the massive V8 (originally a 500 cubic inch before being downsized in 1977 to 425ci), necessitated a long hood, evoking proportions of pre-war Cadillacs.

As per usual, the Eldorados received a slew of standard features and, with numerous additional optional features allowing buyers to tailor their cars precisely their way. Luxurious that have since become commonplace such as automatic climate control and automatic high-beam assist were available on earlier Cadillacs and were naturally on hand once again. By 1978, the writing was on the wall for the ultra-large vehicles the brand produced, the tenth generation Eldorados released the next year were nearly twenty inches shorter and featuring much smaller engines to meet ever-stricter emissions standards.
