The 1967 Cadillac Eldorado is a benchmark classic that set a new standard. That's why it's terrific to find an example that has a very vintage presentation, right down to the big V8 under the hood. It makes for the right kind of distinction on a grand Caddy coupe.
The Eldorado had always been reserved for premium distinction, and that took on a whole new dimension for 1967. Available only as a coupe, it was more expensive than even a DeVille convertible, and that's why it's rarer. It placed Cadillac firmly in the epicenter of the late 1960s by giving a muscle car kind of look... still while not losing its premium values. It had a bold front end with hidden headlights, even sleeker lines than its jet-age predecessors, and an imposing width that wanted to own the road. The red has a cool style with the white vinyl top and matching pinstripe, and the bumpers made sure to hug the sharp angles of the car's form. That's how you know this is rolling opulence. So while you may decide to do a respray or other improvements, there's something fundamentally attractive when something this significant is also complete and correct - right down to the wheel covers.
The interior continues the uniquely attractive style and muscle car flair. After all, we tend to think houndstooth interiors were inside the best power cars, and the Camaro wouldn't even get the option until '68. But when it's used here it just adds to the distinction and the cloth inserts in the seats and doors harmonize with the black and brightwork that surrounds it. This is a roomy hardtop that can carry plenty of family and friends. But an executive-level car like this is also about personal driver comfort. That's why you have a fold-down front armrest, a tilt/telescoping steering column, and all the features are within easy reach. This includes the classic AM/FM/radio, power locks, and power windows that let you take down all the glass on this pillarless hardtop.
The 429 cubic-inch motor fills the engine bay. There is an honest style and this V8 keeps its original spirit right down to the correct-style four-barrel carburetor. It's a torque-filled powerhouse built before emissions regulations, and so it lives up to its muscle car kind of style. But this is not a bruiser; it's a cruiser. The unique front-wheel-drive setup puts the motor's weight over the driving wheels, and it also allows for that flat floor inside where everyone can spread out. And you have a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with front discs to make sure driving this classic still gives you Caddy-style comfort.
Complete with owner's manual, this is a true hallmark classic. So while you may look to give it a respray or update the A/C system, there's also something pretty cool that this car represents from day one. You have a premium cruiser that set a new bar not only for Cadillac, but also for premium and powerful luxury across the whole market. It's The Standard of the World, and so you don't want to miss this Eldorado. Call today!!!
