If you are an Eldorado fanatic like me then chances are you already know what this is and you may have noticed there are two more already on eBay so this is your chance at a real NO RESERVE auction. Once the bidding starts I WILL NOT pull the ad for any reason. All I ask is that you please don't bidunless you intend to buy. eBaycharges me every time I have tore-list so if anyone ruins this auction for anyone else I will not be paying tore-list so this is it. I am not listing again. In the event that someone does try another cashier check scam on me, please save my phone number and call me directly after the auction or message me through eBay. You will find I am very easy to deal with and if any bidders are local, I am happy to show you the car in person. After years of selling cars on eBay, I can't believe I still have to say this but READING is very important. I am very upfront and will hide no issues at all from you. If you did READ and if there is anything you did still hadquestions about regarding condition or shipping arrangements, just ask. I'm not the kind of guy who will be very secretive until the end of the auction. I buy cars on eBaymyself from all over the country so I stress the importance of READING and ASKING questions. To most of you thissounds simple but you'd be amazed at how many peopledon't get it. Now for the fun stuff, shipping and paying for the car. I prefer cash upfront or direct transfer to my Wells Fargo but I will discuss other payment options with you. Shipping is the buyer's responsibility. I am inPhoenix, AZ so Ihighly recommend you find out the cost of shipping to wherever you are and do the math before you start bidding. I do have a few shippingcompanies I have worked with and depending on where you are located I would be willing to drive the car to you as long and you payenough tocover my gas and flight back home. We do have some options here and I'm happy to discuss them with you. You can reach me directly byphone at 602 710-3419 or send me amessage here oneBay. If you have any questions please just ask before the auction ends. I can also provide videos of the car running if you text or call me. Ialso have a video of the humming coming from the dash that I mention later in my listing.

Runs amazing. Doesn't smoke, knock or overheat. Will take through Arizona emissions if you like.Engine and transmission are near perfect mechanically.
Absolutely zero leaks fromastro roofwhen going through carwashwhich is a common problemZero rust underneath or inquarters. No salt rust anywhere in body. Arizona car

The bad:
Does need some TLC. I would consider it a running project.As I mentioned, I would trust to drive it out of state if need to transport but the hood should be fixed first. It's a hassle to lift with the bad hinges
-plastic fender extensions need to be replaced. For those of you who never owned an Eldo, that's why you see the gap between the fenders and bumpers.
-Hood will not close properly. Need new hood hinges. (bad hood hinges do NOT mean you have to replace the hood).
-Needs windshield. Already priced at $170 to replace. I can arrange to replace before shipping.
-front seats have typically Arizona heat damage. Dry but still comfortable and lots of softcushion still. Back seats still feel like new-cracks in top part of dash. You can change just the top on these without removing the entire dash
-Typically rust spots along the vinyl top but no bubbling and no holes in the metal from the rust. It's only surface and has not appeared to weaken the metal at all. Not salt rust. This is from moisture buildup that accumulates underneath the vinyl top. Zero rust underneath and in quarters. As far as I am aware, this was always an Arizona car.-Sunroof not working but I haven't checked fuses yet. I will give an update soon. -Worst is some annoyinghummingcoming from under the dash. I have avideo of it. sometime it goes away. I have no idea what causes this. The AC/heat is OFF when this occurs.

Arizona title is notarized and ready to go! As for as I know I have the only one for sale in the whole state.
Why am I selling? I am selling this Eldorado because I already have three more Eldorados; a 68, 74 convertible, and 78 T-top. I sadly don't have the time to give this car the attention it deserves.
