1982 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz
The Eldorado also refers to El Dorado, the mythical South American "Lost City of Gold" that fascinated Spanish explorers. This was the fourth year of the 6th edition of the Cadillac Eldorado. Powered by a fuel injected 4.1 Liter V8 coupled to a 4-speed automatic transmission with electronic overdrive provided power, as well as economy. Luxury was no longer defined by sheer size, but comfort, drivability, and meeting the EPA emission standards.
Stunning, spectacular, unbelievable are just some of the adjectives that describe this 1982 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz. A 2018 AACA Grand National Senior Winner says it all. To reach this level of award with the AACA, a car must appear completely stock, all original and “as new” condition. That is what this car represents.
Painted in white with white landau roof and stainless-steel top, finding a flaw is like finding a needle in a haystack. Everything is correct with this exterior right down to the wire wheel covers. Doors close with that quality “thud”, and gaps are factory.
The padded red leather seats and carpets appear new. Every option on the car is operational and working as the day it left the factory. A wood grained dash with quintessential early 80's square design, graces the front of the dash, and appears perfect. Digital readouts abound and provide enough information to keep a commercial airline pilot occupied. All original, all showroom condition.
A GM HT-4100 V8 fuel injected engine sits at 249ci in an immaculately detailed engine bay. Attached is a GM Turbo Hydramatic Overdrive THM 325-4L which shifts smoothly under low RPM or when being pushed a bit.
You know you are dealing with an exceptional car when you can view the underside and see virtually no surface rust even on the exhaust system. Underneath the passenger side door, slight rust can be seen, but otherwise one has to look really hard to find another fault.
It appears inconceivable that this car has been driven 91,000 miles and has just won AACA's exclusive award. The detail of the engine bay decries that this car has ever been driven.
