DESCRIPTION

1972 Cadillac Eldorado



The Cadillac Eldorado has always been a trend setter. The Personal Luxury Car market segment that Cadillac created with the Eldorado was growing. The front-wheel drive version was going through its very first redesign with the 1971-1972 models. It was a completely new Fleetwood Eldorado not only in design but also in spirit. The 1971-1972 Fleetwood Eldorado was available as a coupe and a luxury convertible replacing the DeVille convertible series. The Eldorado regained the iconic fender skirts. The "Standard of the World" was still the luxury leader. The Fleetwood Eldorado was still unmistakably Cadillac.



For consignment a sizable, luxurious, convenience smattered, long smooth cruiser piece of massive Detroit iron in this 1972 Eldorado Model. Front wheel drive (look ma!!... no hump!) sharp angled design, nice chrome trimmings, near perfect chrome bumpers, fender skirts, leather interior, all draped in black ready for a night out on the town, or a cruise up to the clubhouse ready to turn heads in classic style from 1972.



Exterior

Gas crisis? We don't need no stinking gas crisis, we will build it even bigger, and allow it to drive on regular gas!!! And this straight steel slabbed sided car which pays very close attention to its gaps and pampers its chrome trimmings is definitely going to be the belle of the ball. A V shaped massive grille with matching hood atop, dual headlights on either side and cathedral turn signal and cornering lights at the front and rear edges, you are driving around in a 3 bedroom apartment on wheels. Trimmings for the wheel well surrounds, rockers and a fine trim spear in mid section with faux vent on bumped out rear quarter, this car bleeds class. A black padded vinyl top with a rectangular coach window on the B pillar, tinted allows your famous passengers to remain anonymous while they are whisked down the superhighways and byways of the country. Sable Black in beautiful condition covers all these steel panels, and it is miles deep and very nicely applied. Badging all looks great, and big dish wheel covers cover thin whites all around.



Interior

A swing of the door and it's a lot like opening a well-balanced safe door! Heavy, but easy to do. On the doors are power controls, wiper switches, chromed panels, black vinyl black carpet and trimmed wood appliqu panels. Inside dual wide black leather buckets, showing some creases as finely aged leather tends to do, sport plenty of power adjustments, and have a fold down center armrest which can accommodate a 3rd front passenger if needed. In back, a wide bench matching the front setup stretches from side to side. The standard square and rectangle dash courtesy GM is in front, and has the trappings of a high optioned car in the form of auto dimming headlights, cruise control, climate control, AM/FM/Stereo, A/C, power steering, power brakes, and all very clean. Black carpet floods the floors, m and a tight black headliner is above all this pampering.



Drivetrain

A 500ci V8, not original but period correct for the year engine, fits nicely into the large engine bay. A little patina but a 4-barrel carburetor feeds it and a TH425 automatic transmission is on back. 3.07 are the gears for the final drive ratio.



Undercarriage

Like new underneath with pristine black surfaces and absolutely no rust. It looks like it was a frame off restoration; it is that well detailed. Independent coil springs for the front suspension, and 4 link with coil springs are on back. Power disc brakes for the front end and power drums for the back.



Drive-Ability

She started with a turn of the key and ran beautifully. A smooooooth cruise, good tight steering and straight braking. With the 500 cubes it does not take too much time to get to cruising speed, and the transmission shifts smoothly on the way there. All functions were working beautifully.



Like a freshly dry-cleaned Tuxedo, this black beauty example of steel luxury and styling from 1972 when cars were built for status and it was measured by the inch. Great shape all over, a nice example of big car style, all buttoned up under the laurel wreath and crest sprung hood ornament.
