1982 Cadillac Eldorado BIARRITZ1982 ELDORADO BIARRITZSTAINLESS STEEL ROOFALL ORIGINAL 'SURVIVOR'RUST FREE SO. CAL CARORIGINAL BLUE PLATESONE OWNERONLY 20K ORIGINAL MILES
If you are looking for a classic Eldorado, ook no further. This is a no excuses, riginal California 'Blue Plate' car that has had just one owner and is an absolute 'survivor', o it is not perfect but it is as we can tell 'original'. The car has just 20k miles and you will receive a clean, nbranded Arizona title with "BOX-A" original mileage reported. The car looks to be complete and it has the Biarritz package with the half landau top and chrome trim that extends from the rear sides all the way to the tip of the front fenders. The car is extra clean and was not smoked in, ou will not find a nicer interior anywhere, t's amazing. Please take time to read the lengthly description and look over the 85+ photos that show how nice this car is inside and out, ven the undercarriage is in great shape.
The body of the car is straight with no major dings or dents, he paint has held up as this car was obviously garage kept, here are no spots where the paint has 'failed', t is all there. There are a few blemishes in the finish like a very small chip and one or two very, ery small door dings (quite insignificant, o paint damage)here or there but nothing that takes away from the striking looks of the car. All trim is intact, t is missing a 12" piece of molding on the passenger side behind the door but complete otherwise. Stainless steel roof is in excellent shape with no weathering or damage, he landau top is also original and shows minimal aging. All chrome is original and shows the appropriate amount of aging but no severe pitting or corrosion. Tires have great tread remaining however show some dryness as you will see and they are nice white-walled Michelin's. I realize that we all have different taste in tires so I figured I would let the next owner select what they would like on the car, would have replaced them with the same Michelin white walls but I'll leave that up to you. Glass is excellent, bsolutely crystal clear with no scraping on the side windows from the window regulator, mazing. Also, he power antenna is in perfect working order as is the 'soft-close' on the trunk lid.
The interior is impeccable, he wear (or lack of wear) is consistent with the mileage. The dash pad is mint with no cracks or warping, oor panels are excellent, arpets are plush and include the original floor mats. Headliner is perfect, isors and vanity mirrors are intact and the lights in them are in working order. Seats are supple and soft with no wear, ven on the outside bolster on the driver's side, t looks amazing. Steering wheel shows just a minimal amount of aging, t's all intact. The car has never been smoked in, t smells fresh and very close to even having nearly a 'new car smell', o musty or tobacco odors at all and no burns anywhere in the upholstery. I have another radio bezel along with a CD player that plugs directly in to the existing radio harness if you are planning to do any driving in the car and wish to update the audio a bit, his will be included with the sale of the car along with one set of keys, ll floor mats, pare tire equipment and a full service manual. There are a few things that need attention on the car, irst, he passenger power window is 'slow', t goes down great but the regulator is sort of weak so it takes a bit to get it all the way back to the upright position. The A/C blows warm, t DOES work as we recharged it and it blew cold but after sitting for a few months it has lost it's charge. I have had several and normally it is an 'Orfice Tube' or a seal on the back of the compressor but that is minor, he components do actually work properly. Thirdly, he cruise control does not engage, t turns on in the dash but the 'servo' under the hood has a broken vacuum seal and the way to tell is that the rubber face that holds the linkage is just flopping around, new servo is about a 150.00 fix (installed). Aside from that, verything else is in good working order, ll gauges, ights (including the 'fiber-optic' indicators inside above the rear window and the fender mounted 'low-high beam and signals appear to work as well), ower door locks, ower seats, ven the power mirrors and power antenna are functioning properly.
Mechanically the car is what you would expect from a vintage Caddy with low miles. It starts up quickly and smoothly with the fuel injection. Exhaust sounds really quiet, t does appear to have a new muffler installed so that is not going to need any attention. Transmission shifts properly and the car holds the road well. It tracks straight down the freeway, rakes are good and the car is a real pleasure to drive, qually as nice to be seen in as it is quite a conversation piece when you pull into a gas station or park it in a busy place.
In all, his will be a great buy on a classic Cadillac, have watched these for a while and there are not many available in original condition with this low of mileage, clean southern history and almost never with the original CA blue plates! At only $11,900 I already have the car priced cheaper than I have seen lesser cars sell for but I realize half the fun of buying a classic car is trying to get the best deal for yourself therefore I am allowing a "Best Offer' option for SERIOUS buyers who wish to submit a reasonable offer.
