This 1978 Cadillac Eldorado has a terrific sense of true vintage style, right down to its big numbers-matching V8. So take some time to look over this triple-black true midnight premium cruiser.
The design lines of this generation Eldorado are ones of a legend. It's a true statement of personal luxury with the extra-long hood that begins a crease line that runs uninterrupted through the doors and flows into the sporty rear kick-up. The Sable Black paint is the factory-correct color, and it shows all the right signs of being the factory application. For many of us, a survivor-style like this with a good gloss is quite desirable, but even if that's not for you, the value price leaves room in your budget to get this shining like onyx. After all, this one also has a terrific look with well-fitting panels. In fact, the red pinstripe really highlights the car's crisp lines. Bright chrome bumpers, a complete and intricate grille, black half-vinyl roof, color-matched turbine-style wheel covers, and classic whitewalls are all part of this overall correct and stylish package.
The black interior sets this coupe apart. After all, when combined with the paint and vinyl top, it's an ultra-desirable triple-black car. This has the kind of luxury that made these Cadillacs so special when new, and it keeps them exceptionally desirable today. So you get power windows, power locks, cruise control, a tilt steering column, AM/FM stereo, and provisions for air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) There are even the cool period-correct pieces on display like the Cadillac-branded CB radio. A comfortable car like this has plenty of space for family and friends to spread out across the leather upholstery. But with an individual armrest and power front seats, the driver really gets to dial-in an individual level of comfort.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 425 cubic-inch V8 topped with a four-barrel carburetor. While it's nice to have the original powerhouse, it's even better to know that the 9,400 miles on the odometer represents the mileage since this motor and its three-speed automatic transmission were rebuilt. It makes for a strong power package that gets delivered smoothly. This driving attitude is heightened by the classic Caddy supple ride, power steering, and the confidence of power disc brakes at all four corners.
This is a triple-black Cadillac that was made to cruise. Don't let this much vintage luxury slip away, call today!
