1984 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 second to last year of the 8th 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, drive-ability, and meeting the EPA emission standards.
Cadillac Sable Black with stainless steel roof, and Sable Black landau top, envelope this nice edition of this 1984 Biarritz.
This meticulously cared for car displays a good exterior, showing some minor faults, but overall very straight and good gaps. The Biarritz edition features a brushed stainless-steel roof covering the front passenger compartment... A styling cue taken from the 1957/58 Eldorado Brougham. Looking at the rear half of the roof is covered with a Sable Black heavily padded landau vinyl top, accented with “opera” lights. An Interior matching red pin stripe runs from bow to stern adding a nice accent of color. Chrome and brite work are in good corrosion free condition, and they couple nicely with Cadillac chrome spoked wheel covers add to the overall “bling” of the vehicle.
The interior features “pillowed” style “tufted” leather seating in wonderful red finish. Cadillac embossed logos show at the top of each seat, given we see a split front bench and a spacious back bench. All seating shows very slight wear for age. Dash and instrumentation are original, and no chips or cracks are evident on the plentiful veneered dash. Some digital displays are noted along with the usual analog. The matching red steering wheel is in good condition, and adjustable up and down. Headliner is free of any blemishes, and in good condition with no fading or tears. The car is equipped with power steering, power brakes, power driver seat, digital climate control, cruise control, power windows, power mirrors, and an aftermarket AM/FM/CD player. The plush red carpeting throughout, is generally clean and shows some staining. All power options are operational. A shout out to the trunk which is covered in plush red carpeting material and barely has a mark on it!
A 4.1-liter V8 powers fed by digital fuel injection powers a 4-speed plus electronic overdrive transmission, that offers accelerating power as well as maintaining fuel efficiency on long trips.
An underside view shows drivetrain to have some minor leaking and a few signs of surface rusting. Otherwise the frame and floorpans/toe boards are structurally sound.
A good looker, a good runner, and a luxurious interior, what more could you ask for…alright it will not be free!
