1989 Cadillac Allante
1989 Cadillac Allante convertible with matching hard top. The car has a little over 64k well kept miles. It was just recently serviced by Allante Source of West Palm Beach at a cost of over $2000.00. The car drives like a dream and is always a head turner. Recently detailed. Great condition with no rips or tears. Top looks new. Body is in exceptional shape. Great paint.
The Allanté is noted for an unusual production arrangement, where completed bodies — designed and manufactured in Italy by Pininfarina — were shipped 4,600mi (7,400km) from Italy in specially equipped Boeing 747s, 56 at a time, to Cadillac's Detroit/Hamtramck Assembly plant where they were mated with domestically manufactured chassis and engine assemblies. Bodies had to be flown from the Turin International Airport in Italy to Detroit's Coleman A. Young International Airport, Power was up in 1989 with the new 4.5 L HT-4500 V8 which produced 200 hp (149 kW) at 4300 rpm and 270 ft·lbf (366 N·m) at 3200 rpm. The 1989 Allanté also received a new speed-sensitive damper system called Speed Dependent Damping Control, or SD²C. This system firmed up the suspension at 25 mph (40 km/h) and again at 60 mph (97 km/h). The firmest setting was also used when starting from a standstill until 5 mph (8 km/h). Another change was a variable-assist steering system. The chassis of the Allanté was made in Detroit, then was loaded onto specially equipped jets and shipped to Italy where the body (which was designed by Pininfarina of Ferrari fame) was mounted to the chassis. Afterwards, the cars were loaded back on the jetliners and shipped back to the Detroit/Hamtramck Assembly plant in Michigan for completion. This led to a few interesting nicknames, such as "The Flying Italian Cadillac" and "the world's longest assembly line."
I would drive this car anywhere.
If you're looking for a midsize classy auto, this is it.
