1990 Cadillac Allante Base Convertible 2-DoorJust received my new title yesterday. I Picked this classic car up for my daughter, but she doesn't want it. What I saw as a classic, my daughter viewed as an, "old mans car."Spoiled brat!Just hoping to get back what I put into it.
I have always loved these cars; so unusual for an American Automaker. They have a great story. A brief history on the Cadillac Allante.
Heading into the mid-1980s, Cadillac had to create something new if it wanted to remain competitive in the luxury car market; it needed an automobile that captivated the masses and that people could aspire to--a truly world-class car. Cadillac wanted to harness the prestige of European design and the skill of a renownedcoachbuilderin order to compete with Mercedes and Jaguar.
Originally created under the code name "Callisto," theAllantéwas designed and built in Turin, Italy, by notedcoachbuilderPininfarina. It was a true Italian-American offspring, because below its sleekly styled Italian bodywork rested an American V-8 engine and transmission, as well as other reliable mechanical systems. In all respects, theAllantérepresented the best of both countries, a car imbued with an impeccable pedigree of style.
TheAllantéproved popular in Hollywood. J.R. Ewing (LarryHagman) drove a silverAllantéin the later years of the hit TV show Dallas; Sylvester Stallone drove one in Tango and Cash, and anAllantéwas driven by JoePesciin one of the Lethal Weapon movies.
The 1987-'88Allantésused the HT 4100 4.1-liter V-8, an underpowered 170hp engine that suffered from weak intake manifold gaskets, which, in part, could lead to internal engine failure. From 1989 through 1992, a far better 200hp 4.5-liter V-8 was used, with reports of numerous 4.5 engines lasting more than 200,000 miles. "One 4.5 engine that we know of has gone 300,000 miles," saidAllantéexpert DickHussey, who specializes inAllantéparts in Florida.
