It’s what every Cadillac Enthusiast dreams of And is a Great Investment As Well!!!

If you know the early Eldorado’s Restored to High Standards, you know a few important key points… They are Very Hot, Very Collectable, Very RARE, looks great and drives like a Cadillac! Especially when you have a true 57k Mile No-Hit body and the quintessential Convertible with power everything and documentation back to new.

One of my all-time favorites, I love the feel and sound of this car and would not be afraid to take it anywhere! The engine has the perfect blend of torque, smoothness. Power the top down, hit the key, let the Signal Seeking Radio find a cool station and take off…it’s that simple. This is a car for shows (any level), cruise-ins, or investment grade for a museum or collection.

The history of this car makes it a very special Cadillac as well… Only 2 years old when the 2nd owner traded their 48’ Cadillac Convertible in on it. They kept it 30 years when the 3rd owner (A Cadillac Dealership Owner) purchased it keeping it another 30 years. I am officially the 4th owner of this special motor vehicle as it was referred to back then. We bought it as an investment and now space issues motivates us to sell.

Things work as they should including but not limited to Headlights, fog lights, Taillights, back-up lights, Signals, Interior Dash, Gauges, Heat, Speedometer, Wipers, Horn, Courtesy Lights, start-up choke, Clock, Power Top, Power Seat, Power Windows, Power Locks, Signal Seeking Radio, etc.…

Is this Caddy perfect? No and none of them are… I consider myself very particular and am usually much more critical of the cars in my collection than anyone else but try to be very forth-coming with details. The windshield has a couple of light wiper smudges (could probably be buffed out), The original Carb was exchanged with an Edelbrock system but the original carb comes with the sell, the master window switch intermittingly operates the passenger side door glass (The passenger switch works flawlessly). That is about all that I can think to pick on the car.

Why am I selling it: It is simply a space issue… The car will be sold for much less than it books and appraises for!

I reserve the right to end this ad early due to having it for sale locally...
