1976 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible The Cadillac Eldorado has always been a trend setter. The personal luxury car market segment that Cadillac created with the Eldorado was growing. The front-wheel drive version was going through its very first redesign with the 1971-1972 models. It was a completely new Fleetwood Eldorado not only in design but also in spirit. The Fleetwood Eldorado was available as a coupe and a luxury convertible replacing the DeVille convertible series. The Standard of the World was still the luxury leader and the Fleetwood Eldorado was still unmistakably Cadillac. The last Eldorado convertible rolled off the line on April 22nd 1976, the end of the drop top era for a few bleak years. For consignment, a sizable, luxurious, convenience smattered, long smooth cruiser piece of massive Detroit iron in this 1976 Eldorado model. Front wheel drive, (look ma!!... no hump!), sharp angled design, nice chrome trimmings, near perfect chrome bumpers, and a leather interior all draped in an ivory/gold interior leather ready for a night out on the town, or a cruise up to the clubhouse ready to turn heads in classic style from 1976. A few faults are noted and our consignor states that some recent brake work was performed and is now ready to part with this classic. ***Due to varying emissions control devices being removed, please check with your state, county, local or provincial motor vehicle department to verify the ability to legally register this vehicle in your area*** Exterior Gas crisis? We don\'t need no stinking gas crisis, we will build it even bigger, and allow it to drive on regular gas!!! And this straight steel slabbed sided car which pays very close attention to its gaps and pampers its chrome trimmings is definitely going to be the belle of the ball. A V shaped massive grille with matching hood atop, dual headlights on either side and cathedral turn signal and cornering lights at the front and rear edges, you are driving around in a 3 bedroom apartment on wheels. Trimming for the wheel well surrounds, rockers, and a fine trim spear in mid-section with exceedingly long rear quarter and deck. This car bleeds class. A white canvas convertible top, with a rear glass window, allows for your potential famous passengers to remain in total comfort while they are whisked down the superhighways and byways of the country. Phonecian Ivory, in good condition covers all these steel panels, and it is very nicely applied but does present with some panel mismatch, and even the prone to cracking filler panels are in great shape. The badging all looks great, as does chrome which remains in like new condition throughout, and standard issue Cadillac wheel covers adron the steel wheels and are wrapped in medium whites on all 4 corners. Interior A swing of the door and it\'s a lot like opening a well-balanced safe door! Heavy, but easy to do. On the doors are power controls, chromed panels, ivory gold stitched leather and vinyl, and gold carpeted lowers for the doors. A peppering of wood appliqué is also seen on these door panels. Inside an ultra-wide ivory gold leather split bench with a fold down armrest is showing some creases, slight soiling, sports plenty of power adjustments, and is large enough to accommodate a 3rd front row passenger. In the back, a wide bench matching the front in design setup stretches from side to side. The standard square and rectangle dash courtesy GM is in front and has the trappings of a high optioned car in the form of auto dimming headlights, cruise control, climate control, a modern AM/FM digital stereo, A/C, power steering, power brakes, and all very clean. The original 3 spoke steering wheel with wood applique inserted into the rim wrap fronts this original looking dash. Gold carpet floods the floors and shows some light fading and staining, especially at the entry points. Drivetrain A 500ci V8 engine fits nicely into the large engine bay with a little
