Description:

1985 Cadillac Eldorado

No Reserve.....1985 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible. Clear title in hand, ready to be transferred. No liens. This car is a deteriorated restoration. The car has a amateur candy paint job that was done several years ago. The prep work was not done well, and the paint was not put on thick enough, nor was any clear sprayed on. The car has no rust on the body, and a small bit of surface rust underneath. The seats were recovered several years ago and are still in really nice condition. The seats have clear plastic covers. The rest of the interior appears to be from the factory and is in good condition. I'm going to list the good and bad of this car. I bought it to restore but I just don't have the funds or time to do it so it must go. The car was leaking coolant when I first bought it and I replaced the water pump and there have been no leaks since. I also replaced the thermostat, radiator cap and upper radiator hose. I also did a coolant flush and put fresh coolant in. I have also changed the oil in it twice since I've had it with Valvoline Synpower 10W30 and AC Delco oil filters.NADA low retail is 5925.00. More pics can be sent upon request. Please note, just so there is no confusion, the car has 101,660 miles and had 102,000 when I bought it. The title states that is has 120,000 miles which is not accurate, it was entered wrong at the clerk's office when I transferred it.
