This 1969 Cadillac Eldorado is an elegantly all-black coupe. So when you have a big V8, driver-oriented interior, and awesome cruiser style - and it's all offered for an affordable price - you know this is quite an attractive deal.
The Eldorado was one of the most expensive Cadillacs when new, and so an Eldorado was reserved for executive-level big shots. And this one loves to show off that kind of style on a glossy presentation of its factory-correct black. This timeless elegance is a great way to feature the clean body lines, imposing front end, and sporty proportioned long hood design. There are even cool details, like the way the wheel covers coordinate with the whitewalls, and the rear bumper seems to mimic the trunk's design. You will find detail areas for improvement if you're looking to go beyond a cruiser-ready style, but the value price is there for a reason. It's a great car for enjoying today, and it leaves room in your budget for making personal updates/upgrades down the road if you wish.
The interior is a special set up for the Eldorado. The front-wheel-drive layout allowed for a flat floor to make this even more comfortable for all your passengers. As a true Caddy, there's plenty of room for everyone to spread out, and the reupholstered seats add to the comfort. But a car like this is very much centered around the driver. There's a large fold-down center armrest, tilt steering column, and a full driver-oriented dash. So it's an easy reach to features like power locks and cruise control. And the power windows let you take down all the windows on this hardtop without leaving the driver's seat. There are even provisions for factory air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) And you'll love all the vintage details, including the smooth wood-like trim and the lights of the doors panels and c-pillar still greet you when you hop inside.
The 472 cubic-inch motor fills the engine bay. There is an honest style and this V8 keeps its original spirit right down to the Rochester four-barrel carburetor. It's a torque-filled powerhouse that confidently and swiftly allows this coupe to pull away - and ahead - from every stoplight. In fact, the front-wheel-drive setup is great for all-around driving by keeping the weight of the motor up with the driving wheels. This coupe's cruising attitude is heightened by a smooth-shifting three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with front discs.
The sale comes complete with the maintenance records and a service manual. This is executive-level classic elegance for a price that lets you give it your own personal touch. Call today!!!
