1976 Cadillac Eldorado ConvertibleThis 1976 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible is the product of exceptional care, the right investments, and an overall commitment to the last true American drop-top cruiser. So as you look over everything from the ultra-sleek finish to the A/C interior, you realize this is the one that sets the example for all others.
Commodore Blue Metallic is a terrific factory color. There's a deep tone that instantly conveys sophistication. It only gets better on an example like this where there was a solid investment to make sure it gets the right balance of a refined style while also having plenty of metallic that radiates in the sunlight. The color is rarely seen on these Eldorados, because it was only offered for a few years, and 1976 was the last Caddy convertible for nearly a decade. So this makes for quite a significant car where the appeal has history to go with its stature. This convertible's charm is also in its total presentation. The sheetmetal has an outstanding level of preservation, and there's such good chrome on the bumpers that you can see the reflection of the intricate grille. You really do have the best in details, right down to the white pinstriping. It highlights the chic lines of the hood, and at the same time, it coordinates with the crisp white convertible top.
As much as we like the look of this car with the roof in place, it gets even better with the top down. The factory-correct Firethorn red is one of the most distinctive and premium colors you can even have. Plus, with the white convertible boot in place, this car full displays a red, white, and blue patriotic attitude - so it's a true way to celebrate America's bicentennial in 1976. The ultra-low odometer is believed to represent this car's total actual mileage, which means this whole interior has barely seen any use. The leather has a smooth and supple look across its plush pleated design, and so you can see you're in for a luxurious experience even before you sit down. This has plenty of space for family and friends to spread out, but a car like this is all about the driver. That's why you have an individual armrest and your seat power adjusts to the ideal position. There's a tilt steering wheel, and all your controls are within easy reach. This includes the power locks, cruise control, and a retro-style AM/FM radio that looks like stock but offers modern Bluetooth. The power windows and power convertible top mean you never have to leave the driver's seat to go from enclosed comfort to a wind-in-your-hair experience. And the factory air conditioning is blowing cold with modern R134a refrigerant to make sure those top-down sunny days remain feeling cool.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 500 cubic-inch V8. This was the last year for this big powerhouse, and so this example makes sure its original motor is ready to be shown off. The smooth blue on the valve covers, matching block color, good hoses, factory decals, and overall tidiness makes the largest of Caddy motors also look elegant. The commitment to quality under the hood is also why the V8 fires up and runs with the kind of smoothness you really want in Caddy. Topped with a four-barrel carburetor, this V8 makes plenty of torque to keep it an easy cruiser. This also has a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and Cadillac's legendary supple ride. And don't forget this was also the year that these Eldorados were upgraded to four-wheel power disc brakes.
Complete with owner's manual and service manuals, this Eldorado convertible has the history, features, and luxury to be your favorite classic. So if you want to be outstanding in the best ways, call today!
