1973 Cadillac Eldorado

One look at this all-original 1973 Eldorado convertible, nd it's easy to imagine it hauling across the Texas landscape at 100 MPH, op down, ith a fellow wearing a big cowboy hat behind the wheel. For a car that's more than forty years old, his one looks amazing. The big Eldo's curves and angles have aged pretty well, nd it's a distinctive ride that is getting a lot of respect from the collector community. Bright Dynasty Red paint with white pinstripes is a classic look that will never go out of fashion like some colors from the era. Straight body panels that have never been hit or repainted give it an honest patina, nd there's nothing on this car that looks too new or worn out. There's plenty of chrome (this is a Cadillac, fter all), nd it all remains in very good condition. Even the plastic fender fillers that frame the taillights are intact, nd these are always the first parts to deteriorate and crack with age. Fender skirts were still very much in style in 1973 and they make the 18-foot-long Eldo look even bigger than it is, nd there are no signs of trouble in the usual areas just above the skirts themselves.The red leather interior is shockingly good, oth for the age and for a convertible, ecause their interiors usually get baked by the sun. Not so here, here the hides remain supple, here are no splits or tears, nd the back seat looks practically unused. There's room for six aboard the Eldorado, nd thanks to the front-wheel-drive, here is no transmission hump, o legroom is expansive. Door panels are good, ith only the driver's arm rest showing some cracking where you'd rest your elbow, nd the carpets are still protected by the original floor mats. Every power accessory was standard on the Eldorado, nd this one also includes options like dual power seats, wilight Sentinal, rear defroster, nd automatic climate control, ll of which are fully functional. There's also a cool hidden sound system with a remote amplifier and CD changer, o you can cruise all day. The unique "scissor" power top folds easily into the well where it's hidden by a rare fiberglass parade boot and the trunk is still outfitted with its original rubber mat, real rarity.Until recently, he 500 cubic inch V8 under the hood was the largest mass-produced engine ever built. Designed for effortless torque and smooth operation, t's a willing companion to the Eldorado's luxury mission. It starts easily, uns on pump gas, nd delivers decent performance despite the convertible's 5200-pound curb weight. The engine has never been out of the car, nd the engine bay is 100% original, howing careful maintenance and clean living throughout, ith the only visible upgrades being a new master cylinder and R134a refrigerant in the A/C system. The chassis is just as solid and just as clean as the engine bay, nd the TH425 3-speed automatic transmission and CV joints are all in great shape. A correct single exhaust still uses a resonator out back, o it has the right sound: muscular but subtle. Unique wheel covers are in great condition and ride inside a set of 235/75/15 whitewall radials.Big cars like this remain an experience to drive, ith a smooth ride and absolute isolation from the road that has never been duplicated. This Eldorado represents the last of the great luxury convertibles. Call today!
