This a really pretty Cadillac Eldorado convertible out-fitted in Firemist Crystal blue, pastel blue vinyl convertible top, with light blue leather interior and blue carpets & dash. The overall combination presents very elegantly indeed. This particular Cadillac was delivered new in California, spent the last 15 years in Arizona, went to Missouri before coming to Illinois less than 2 years ago. The body on this car is quite straight. Looking under the hood and trunk is evident of its originality. The car has been repainted at some stage (same colour) and presents well for driver quality and use. There are some minor marks, blemishes and chips here and there from normal use but overall presents shiny and clean. To make it clear, it is not of any show quality standard but presents well being consistent overall. The vinyl convertible top is brand new from 2018 and so is in excellent condition without fading or sun-damage. The interior of the car is in great condition, even though the leather does show some signs of age, it presents with an acceptable level of patina and not coming across as "too perfect". The door arm-rests have the usual splits in the vinyl covering which is a shame (check with us if you would like us to replace) and the faux wood panel inserts are excellent in the centre of the doors but faded on the outer sections. Carpet is excellent, headliner good and the dash is perfect without any cracks. The dash fascia and instrument panel are in good shape with nice chrome and switch gear. The steering wheel appears very nice but I have never removed the rim cover in fear that it might be cracked. Interior features and functions are operational including electrics – windows (4 side window option), seat, gauges, lights etc. The A/C needs attention as it is not blowing cold. The clock keeps its own time. Everything is generally clean and crisp. All the knobs, centre switches, radio and surrounding bright-work finishers are in good shape. It is only a shame the factory radio was replaced at some stage. Exterior chrome and bright work finishes are all good and present generally well except for the left front fender nose chrome finisher that is ill-fitting. The grill is clean and straight. Exterior lights and their lenses are all good. The car comes with its "parade" roof cover. Mechanically, the car is good condition and the clean and original presentation under the bonnet clearly shows that. The engine runs strong and the trans changes smooth. The front-end feels tight (with new shocks 2019) and power steering light and smooth (new hi-pressure hose 2018). Exhaust is good (new muffler in 2018) and wide whitewall tyres fitted in 2019. A new master cylinder and brakes serviced also in 2018. The + or - 70,000 miles is not verifiable but everything about the car certainly supports it to be a low mileage example. This is an 8 out of 10 driver example that would make for a gorgeous “weekender” - one that you could take to your next Cadillac meet with joy. There are not many left available in this condition. I drove this car regularly over the 2018 and 2019 summer and she has been a real blast, enormous fun and with surprisingly, great reliability with various jaunts to swimming lakes in Wisconsin. Please take the time to look at the photo link below to many additional photos where I have endeavored to capture how pretty this car is.
