ONLY 20K ORIGINAL MILES

If you are looking for a classic Eldorado, look no further. This is a no excuses, original California car that has had just one owner and is an absolute 'survivor', so it is not perfect but it is as we can tell 'original'. The car has just 20k miles and you will receive a clean, unbranded Arizona title with "BOX-A" original mileage reported. The car looks to be complete and it has the Biarritz package with the half landau top and chrome trim that extends from the rear sides all the way to the tip of the front fenders. The car is extra clean and was not smoked in, you will not find a nicer interior anywhere, it's amazing. Please take time to read the lengthly description and look over the 85+ photos that show how nice this car is inside and out, even the undercarriage is in great shape.

The body of the car is straight with no major dings or dents, the paint has held up as this car was obviously garage kept, there are no spots where the paint has 'failed', it is all there. There are a few blemishes in the finish like a very small chip and one or two very, very small door dings (quite insignificant, no paint damage)here or there but nothing that takes away from the striking looks of the car. All trim is intact, it is missing a 12" piece of molding on the passenger side behind the door but complete otherwise. Stainless steel roof is in excellent shape with no weathering or damage, the landau top is also original and shows minimal aging. All chrome is original and shows the appropriate amount of aging but no severe pitting or corrosion. Tires have great tread remaining however show some dryness as you will see and they are nice white-walled Michelin's. I realize that we all have different taste in tires so I figured I would let the next owner select what they would like on the car, I would have replaced them with the same Michelin white walls but I'll leave that up to you. Glass is excellent, absolutely crystal clear with no scraping on the side windows from the window regulator, amazing. Also, the power antenna is in perfect working order as is the 'soft-close' on the trunk lid.

The interior is impeccable, the wear (or lack of wear) is consistent with the mileage. The dash pad is mint with no cracks or warping, door panels are excellent, carpets are plush and include the original floor mats. Headliner is perfect, visors and vanity mirrors are intact and the lights in them are in working order. Seats are supple and soft with no wear, even on the outside bolster on the driver's side, it looks amazing. Steering wheel shows just a minimal amount of aging, it's all intact. The car has never been smoked in, it smells fresh and very close to even having nearly a 'new car smell', no musty or tobacco odors at all and no burns anywhere in the upholstery. I have another radio bezel along with a CD player that plugs directly in to the existing radio harness if you are planning to do any driving in the car and wish to update the audio a bit, this will be included with the sale of the car along with one set of keys, all floor mats, spare tire equipment and a full service manual. There are a few things that need attention on the car, first, the passenger power window is 'slow', it goes down great but the regulator is sort of weak so it takes a bit to get it all the way back to the upright position. The A/C blows warm, it DOES work as we recharged it and it blew cold but after sitting for a few months it has lost it's charge. I have had several and normally it is an 'Orfice Tube' or a seal on the back of the compressor but that is minor, the components do actually work properly. Thirdly, the cruise control does not engage, it turns on in the dash but the 'servo' under the hood has a broken vacuum seal and the way to tell is that the rubber face that holds the linkage is just flopping around, a new servo is about a 150.00 fix (installed). Aside from that, everything else is in good working order, all gauges, lights (including the 'fiber-optic' indicators inside above the rear window and the fender mounted 'low-high beam and signals appear to work as well), power door locks, power seats, even the power mirrors and power antenna are functioning properly.

Mechanically, the car does run and drive, it will need some tuning as it has sat for a long time but the fuel injection works and the car starts right up, transmission shifts and it holds the road fine. Exhaust sounds really quiet, it does appear to have a new muffler installed so that is not going to need any attention.

In all, this will be a great buy on a classic Cadillac, I have watched these for a while and there are not many available in original condition with this low of mileage and a clean southern history.At NO RESERVE, the highest bidder after 7 days will be an owner, please do not bid unless you are capable and willing to fulfil your obligation.
