1966 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible
80K original Miles
Here's a YouTube clip of this Eldo in action!
The condition of this car has stayed true to the "originality" of a new
Cadillac purchased in 1966. There are no major modifications and the
car presents true to the original brochure/options which only adds to
the provenance of a true collectible Cadillac. I've seen many Cadillac
vehicles out there that have been "modified" or customized with new
"non-stock" parts and they just don't have the same "feel/look" as the true
originals. Not to mention, the value plummets once they're tricked out!
This Eldorado has a new chocolate top. The top frame was also
removed, media blasted and re-finished in a black satin. The power
top works perfectly including the latches that are in great shape.
The padding/headliner is also new. This top also has a new back
They made 2,250 examples of the Eldorado in 1966
compared to the 15,000+ DeVille series. The Eldorado also has
unique body-side trim with the stainless trim below which was
not offered on the DeVille. One nice feature on the Eldorado is the
"clean lines" of the body sides. The door bumper guard is mounted
much lower than the DeVille's only enhancing the sharp and clean
look! The Eldorado also had exclusive interior appointments like
the Walnut Wood Door Panels and the specific badges/wreath and
crest emblems and many more options.
The stainless trim around the windshield (in and out)
shines like new. The door sill-plates are also in shiny/gorgeous
condition. The stainless trim around the exterior is also like new.
This Eldorado still has the original perforated "cream" leather interior
and it has been meticulously maintained. The champagne carpeting
is new and the floor mats are also new which include the Cadillac
crests. The door panels also have new matching carpeting. The
exterior color is champagne/gold metallic.
A lot of attention has been focused on the condition of the dash.
The chocolate dashboard is perfect and the metal accents shine
beautifully! The sensor grille on the dash is also perfect. Most of these
sensor grilles have since deteriorated and/or completely crumbled
over the years and they are VERY HARD to find in this condition. The
gauges etc. are all intact (like new) with perfect chrome and the paint
is fantastic throughout the dash/clock/knobs/gauges etc. The original
clock works great and the clock motor has been rebuilt to keep
quartz-accurate time with the "old-school" sweeping hand movement.
This Cadillac has power EVERYTHING! Power seats, windows, vent
windows, door locks, trunk release and top. The vacuum system that
controls the door locks/trunk release has no leaks and works great.
This also has the original (crack-free) tilt steering wheel with the
optional "telescoping" feature which is nice. Btw, the color combination
on this car really turns heads!
This Eldorado has the very rare Bucket Seat option with the included
locking center console. The console is handy (like an extra glove box)
and the latch/locking mechanism is intact. This also has a light inside
and another that shines from the back console grille to help light the floor
for the back passengers while exiting/entering. This is exclusive to
the bucket seat option.
This Eldorado also has the original genuine Walnut Wood Panels on the
doors. This wood was meticulously sanded/stained/restored to like-new
condition and the wood is gorgeous!
The engine bay has been meticulously detailed with newer paint on the
valve covers and more. There is a newer hood pad and many hoses/fittings
were replaced with NOS (New Old Stock) originals. This engine runs
like new and has tons of power! It is very smooth and a ton of money
was invested into the engine/bay.
