1972 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible Pristine 79k Miles
The Cadillac Eldorado has always been a trend setter. The Personal Luxury Car market segment that Cadillac created with the Eldorado was growing. The front-wheel drive version was going through its very first redesign with the 1971-1972 models. It was a completely new Fleetwood Eldorado not only in design but also in spirit. The 1971-1972 Fleetwood Eldorado was available as a coupe and a luxury convertible replacing the DeVille convertible series. The Eldorado regained the iconic fender skirts.... The "Standard of the World" was still the luxury leader. The Fleetwood Eldorado was still unmistakably Cadillac. The spirited seventies were no more graciously expressed than with the 1971-1972 Fleetwood Eldorado. Their spirited performance came from the 8.2 litre 16-valve 500 CID OHV V8 engine. It was the largest engine to power a passenger production car in the world. For the 1972 model year, the 8.2 litre V8 produced 235 hp @ 3,800 rpm with 522 Nm of peak torque @ 2,400 rpm. As far as performance, the 1972 went from 0-60 mph in 9.7 seconds, 0-100 mph in 29.3 seconds, with a top speed of 117 mph. It did the Â¼ mile @ 81 mph in 17.3 seconds. The 1971-1972 Fleetwood Eldorado convertibles were equally as elegant as the coupes but added a youthful and glamorous touch. The ingenious fully automatic inward folding roof provided full width rear seating for three passengers comfortably. The 1972 model year introduced a new two-piece fiberglass parade boot which was reminiscent of the original 1953 Eldorado. Soft pliable Sierra grain leather was standard. Only the Cadillac Fleetwood Eldorado combined tasteful individuality and youthful sportiness in one Personal Luxury convertible. The silhouette of this magnificent drop top looked even longer and more elegant than the coupe. It was the only luxury convertible built-in America. The 1971-1972 Cadillac Fleetwood Eldorados were the Standard of the World in open grand tourers. For more information on our Cadillac or to make an offer, give Dan a call at 863-370-6712.
