The Eldorado has always been known as a good looking, nice driving, personal luxury car. This car continues that tradition in style. But this particular car must have been a special occasion and sunny day car for someone, because it only has 30,441 miles on it! Check it out.
Cameo Cream is a nice soft shade of yellow. Its pleasing and calming when you see it, maybe in part because you know that when you get in it and drive it down the road, it will be a pleasing and calming experience. At the front of that long hood is a Cadillac hood ornament and below it is a broad chrome grill that peaks in the center flanked by quad rectangular headlights. A substantial chrome bumper wraps around the edges with extra guards framing the license plate. The steep rake of the windshield has a sporty look to it and a thin pinstripe runs front to rear along the tops of the fenders and doors. The back of the car has vertical taillights and clean styling with a trunk that is plenty big enough for multiple sets of golf clubs or luggage for a family vacation. Chrome wire wheel covers with a Cadillac crest in the center complete the look of this car nicely.
Open the door and you will be welcomed into the lap of Cadillac luxury. The door panel has a long comfortable armrest for easy cruising on road trips and is trimmed out with nice wood grain panels. Switches for the power windows and locks as well as the power seat are right at your fingertips. Slide on into that power operated, leather trimmed seat, and get it adjusted just right for yourself. But be warned, it's so comfortable that you may not want to get back out of it! A two-spoke steering wheel with a Cadillac crest in the center is mounted on a column that both tilts and telescopes with the shifter for the automatic transmission as well as cruise control mounted on it. The dash is a perfect contrast to the tan leather with a rich wood grained finish. The odometer will show the very low actual miles on this car, so the super sharp and clean look of everything including the ventilation and stereo controls is not really surprising.
Pop the hood and you will find a 4.1-liter V8 motor nestled down in the neat and clean engine bay. There are signs of good regular maintenance, and with just over 30,000 miles on it, it's barely through the break in period! The black air filter advertises Digital Fuel Injection and polished valve covers add a splash of flash to the engine bay. Being a front wheel drive car means no driveshafts heading back eating up interior and trunk space. It also means that it has good drivability in the rain and the snow, neither one of which this car has seen much of. The three-speed automatic transmission works through a front suspension with a-arms and torsion bars. The rear suspension is a trailing arm setup with coils springs that offers a great combination of handling and ride. Power front disc brakes provide good stopping power and the rubber meets the road through 205/75R15s mounted on steel wheels with those chrome wire wheel covers completing the picture.
Cadillac's personal luxury car, the Eldorado. Come on down and check out this fine, low mileage example of what that means.
