* This year(1976) brought no drastic changes, but some styling refinements.

* The "Cadillac" script signature was now on the hood (driver's side) rather than the grille itself.

* Though similar to the 1975 version, this year's crosshatch grille was dominated by vertical bars.

* The gille was peaked forward at the center.

* The grille reached a bit higher than the quad rectangular headlamps.

* New amber-lensed parking lamps rested down in the bumper; horizontal amber-lensed cornering lamps sat back on front fenders.

* Massive vertical extensions of the outboard bumper protrusions stood at front fender tips.

* Eldorado script was on rear fenders and decklid.

* Wide, simple new taillamps were continuous red slots within wide bezel frames, below the decklid and above the bumper.

* Backup lights were on each side of the license plate.

* Additional red lenses, facing both side and rear, sat in the massive vertical chrome fender extensions.

* Distinctively-shaped opera windows sloped down and forward at the base, following the dip in the quarter panel.

* Other styling highlights included dual accent stripes next to upper and lower crease lines of the hood's beveled edges.

* Upper stripes ended at the hood's rear edge; lower stripes extended all the way to rear edge of door.


This Eldorado is all original. It has had a new top, tires and a professional repaint in its original "firethorn red".
