This is the cool survivor-grade convertible that can carry all your friends or family in style. The 1976 Cadillac Eldorado was the end of a legend, and so it's great to find such a complete example that's a rolling shrine to the big classic American droptop.
1976 shut the door on the traditional American convertible that was big, roomy, and floated over the road in complete comfort. The consignor states the car has been under the care of the same family since new, and so you have a survivor-style convertible that has been given the right respect. Georgian Silver is a terrific factory original-color and this has signs of originality. Yes, it's no longer in top condition, but the value price helps for those who want to go from survivor-grade to show-level. And you can do that because of how complete the body is, right down to the plastic panels that fill the area between the metal body and the front and rear marker lights. Plus, this look is excellent with the turbine-style wheel covers and folding roof both finished in a darker gray. It gives a hint of a sophisticated two-tone that this classic Caddy earns.
Take down the power folding roof, and the silvery-gray attitude continues inside. So this one has great coordinating tones with the top up or down. The leather interior has a very original feeling, right down to the stylized wood-like inserts on the door panels. The three-spoke wheel gives you a commanding view of the dash and all its '70s-cool wood paneling. The interior has the kind of luxury that made these Cadillacs so special when new, and these are the features that you would even want on a brand new car. It includes power front seat, power locks, cruise control, tilt/telescope steering wheel, and an upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo. Plus, with the air conditioning blowing cold, you can stay cool with the top down long into the summer.
Just as this was promoted as the last American convertible, 1976 was also the last year for the monstrous 500 cubic-inch V8 motor. So it's great to have the numbers-matching powerplant still under the hood. The four-barrel carburetor even received recent work to keep it running well. Emissions regulations of that era had taken out some of the horsepower, but this Caddy has no trouble moving because it still makes about as much torque as a modern V8 Chevy truck! The cruising attitude is heightened by a smooth-shifting three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with discs at all four corners the first and only year for this feature on Eldorado convertibles. The suspension in this car must be experienced. You would think Cadillacs from this era are referred to as boats because of their size, but after you drive it, you'll swear it's because how it floats down the road.
This legend is big on space, big on torque, and big on luxury. The only thing small about this Caddy is the price. Call today!!!
