1989 Cadillac Allante Hardtop ConvertibleThis is a clean and original 1989 Cadillac Allante Hardtop Convertible. This was the first year of the 4.5 liter V8. This Allante is all original from the paint to the interior, and it has been well cared for over the last 3 decades. The body was built in Italy at the Pininfarina factory and then sent to Detroit to complete the assembly. Aluminum removable hardtop with a mint condition soft top as well. The seats are 10 way leather Recaro seats which were downgraded in the later models. The interior is in great condition overall as shown with no cracks in the dash and the headliner and door panels are mint.
I have a large catalog of records for the maintenance since it was new. It has been garage parked and spent its life here in Southern California away from the ocean so there is no rust at all anywhere. It is driven regularly and has no reliability issues. I take it on a long trips and it is always a pleasure to drive even at higher speeds on the freeway. Newer tires on factory Cadillac optional chrome wheels.
The original paint is in fantastic condition as shown. No accidents. Current registration here in California until December 2017 and no warning lights. Newer catalytic converter and it passes smog with no issues. Brakes have been redone and they work better than most new cars. This Cadillac only weighs 3600 lbs and it feels very sporty. Surprisingly modern technology was put into the production and engineering of this model and they only made a couple thousand of them per year during their short production run. I would keep it but with 3 children and 2 seats it is just not practical enough for me to keep even as a second car. I rather pass it on to someone who can use it more.
It stays cool, truly has no mechanical issues. So the new buyer has no surprises, the A/C blows cold but not very strong. The driver window is finicky but I have not looked into sorting it. The only paint fade on the whole car is on the very top of the rear bumper and it is slight and hard to notice from most angles. The Bose stereo sounds great but the tape player has been known to act up. Other than these issues there is nothing to do but enjoy this Allante.
Located in San Diego, CA not far from the airport. It is ready to drive away with no issues at all or I will deal with your shipper. International buyers accepted.
