Hemmings Find of the Day – 1976 Cadillac Eldorado coupe

Published in

From the seller’s description:

1976 Cadillac Eldorado Coupe Superb Florentine Gold Firemist With 37,736 Miles.

The Eldorado was built in June, 1976. The car was purchased used from Bianco Cadillac in Corta Madera, just north of San Francisco, in 1979, with 9,109 miles. The car was used for vacations to Los Angeles and Seattle and presently has just over 37,000 miles…that’s an average of less than 1000 miles per year. The Eldorado was always garaged and never taken out in the rain. It sports the original factory metallic gold paint in pristine condition. No dents, dings, scrapes, and certainly zero rust. The tan half vinyl roof is in perfect condition. The chrome and stainless exterior trim are in perfect condition, as well. There is a quarter size dent in the gray rubber rear bumper impact strip by the left side tail light. The interior has the original tan leather that is still factory soft. Door panels and the headliner are perfect. The radio receives AM and FM, and as a bonus, the 8 track player works. The fender mounted electric antenna does not raise. The Eldorado is equipped with Automatic Climate Control which blows hot air on the floor when set to heat, and ice cold air from the dash vents when set to cold. The Power Windows and Power Door Locks work well. The car also has Power Seats, Cruise Control, and Twilight Sentinel. This is a non-smoking car, as the pictures show the ashtray and lighter have never been used. The Eldorado is equipped with the 500 cubic inch engine with the Quadrajet carburetor fuel system, hydraulic assist Power Brakes, Power Steering and front wheel drive. The engine starts right up, has lots of power, the transmission shifts smoothly and the four wheel disc brakes provide quick, sure stops. At 37,000 miles the engine has had the water pump replaced, the rear brake calipers were replaced, and the AC serviced recently. Oil was changed every 1500 miles.

All original, unmolested 37,000 mile, squeaky clean, 40 year old cars don’t come up too often. This 1976 Cadillac Eldorado in the optional extra cost factory Florentine Gold Firemist paint, set off with the tan vinyl roof and tan leather interior is a fine example of a desirable car built in a time when Cadillac was king of the road.
