1975 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible
500V8, SAME OWNER 25 YEARS, ORIGINAL INTERIOR, GREAT CRUISER!
HIGHLIGHTS: Same owner since the 1990s! Offered for sale for the first time in the 21st century! Believed to be 64k actual miles! Original interior! Great cruiser!
BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this 1975 Cadillac Eldorado is in amazing condition! This car was completely repainted in 1997 with a new convertible top at a cost of over $10,000—in 1997! As expected after such a bill, the body is looking great with very minimal defects.
PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: The quality of the paint job really shows, as looking at this car up close it is hard to believe that the paint is nearly 25 years old, which makes sense given the cost of the paint job mentioned above. With age comes some defects, and while they are few and far between, there are some minor chips and scratches to be found. After all, this car has covered almost 40,000 miles with this paint on it!
INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The interior appears to be the original white leather, and it looks great! The seats are soft, squishy, and appear to have been cared for as one would expect for a car that has had the same owner this long. The only signs of use are normal creasing. The dash plastic is in nice condition, as are all of the other interior plastic items. Everything that normally cracks or fades in the sun is in nice shape, again evidence of the care this car has received. The seats could use a good deep cleaning, but are otherwise in good condition. The steering wheel has a cover on it, and the resin inlay does appear to be peeling under that cover.
MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: The legendary Cadillac 500V8 fires up easily, and runs just as smooth as a Cadillac should. And why shouldn't it? It was professionally rebuilt in 2003 when the mileage on the car was 54,248 at a cost of nearly $6,000. The transmission seems to shift smoothly, and was rebuilt in 2007 at mileage 56,076 by Jasper via Arnold Palmer Cadillac. That's right–this car was taken for transmission service at the dealer in 2007!
WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: How well-maintained it has been, and the overall current condition.
WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: This car has seen some seriously good care over the years, but due to there still being a lot of nice original parts on it, it isn't quite a show car.
DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? Although the A/C compressor was replaced within the last 10,000 miles, and seems to be working, the A/C is not cold. Additionally, the shift indicator is stuck on park (though the shifter works fine).
WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Anyone looking for a great example of a classic Eldorado!

If marked "Numbers Matching" or "Original Mileage", the consignor(current owner) states this vehicle as such.

We can assist you in delivery through our network of private and commercial carriers most of which can deliver the vehicle to your driveway. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody.

A dealer documentation fee of $250 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale.
