The Cadillac Eldorado is an all-American classic with a storied history first starting in the 1950s. With multiple of the 10 generations becoming instant hits and eventually classics, Eldorado is a household name for many car enthusiasts. Having hopped on the front-wheel-drive train early on with the sixth-generation Eldorado in 1967, the FWD layout continued until the Eldorado nameplate reached its end in 2002.
This 1985 is the final year for the eighth-generation Eldorado, and is a wonderfully preserved example of how Cadillacs were during that time period. By this time a relatively small car, this Eldorado till feels just like a Cadillac should! This example is a three-owner, one-family vehicle that is unrestored and in well-maintained, preserved condition. The exterior is in great overall condition, and period-appropriate upgrades include a simulated convertible top and a faux continental kit. The white paint and wire wheel covers are the quintessential Cadillac combination. Having covered just 50,000 miles since new, it is no wonder this car is in such great condition.
The interior is perhaps the most impressive part of this car. For how small it is compared to previous generations of the Eldorado, Cadillac managed to maintain plenty of interior space and lots of comfort options. The dark blue leather is a perfect match for the white exterior, and the seats are so comfortable they really do show the Cadillac difference. The legroom for front seat passengers is almost unbelievable, and the lack of a transmission hump due to the FWD layout is a huge bonus. The seats and all wear items are in excellently preserved condition showing extremely minimal wear; exactly what you would expect in a 50,000 mile vehicle.
Under the hood is the original 4.1L Cadillac V8. This car purrs quietly at idle and accelerates gracefully, as any true Cadillac should. The 4.1 is very adequate power for this car and the ease of driving makes this a perfect cruiser. Given the low mileage, this car handles like its 20 years younger, and rides like you're sitting on a cloud! Again, exactly what you would expect in a Cadillac and we just can't get enough of it.
This little Cadillac is clean from top to bottom, inside and out. If you're in the market for a low-mileage, well-maintained cruiser, this may just be the car for you! This is a turn-key weekend car that needs nothing and is ready for a new loving home.
