1984 Cadillac Eldorado
1984 Ads proclaim “Ever since that summer job, you've dreamed of having your own Eldorado. And now you do, a very special Cadillac Eldorado. With style all its own and a special way of moving you like no other car. You were right all along. Eldorado is the car that dreams are made of.
For consignment the 1984 version the Cadillac Eldorado. Imagine yourself behind the wheel of this classic that is an all original car which was only handled by a mere 2 owners, garage kept, and a mere 89,000 miles that are original, just like this wonderful luxury car.
Woodland Haze, much like a glass of fine champagne, is on the surface of the straight steel panels which are minding their gaps. Mid 80's square and rectangle design can be seen throughout this car, particularly on the front with the headlight and turn signal light cluster setup which flanks an egg crate outward V styled grille. A nice shiny bumper below is the bottom frame, and from the edge of this as it wraps around the front quarter, a stainless rocker trim bands the remainder of this car. We do note that the filler panels are coming apart and, in some cases, missing, a common malady for this era Eldorado. Trim and badging look excellent with no fading or dimpling. and the outward rake of the taillights add a nice touch to the back of this buttoned up example. Standard Caddy wheel covers are seen on all 4 corners…A TOAST!
Brown tufted and buttoned velour broadcloth covers the dual front recliner-esque front wide buckets. The wood appliqué sash presents itself very nicely, and again utilizing their square motif for the gauges and various panels on the dash. A rear bench showing like a living room couch also utilizes the tufted and button pattern but sports an embroidered headrest area panel atop. Clean brown carpet floods the floors, and a nice tight headliner floats above. Lots of power options attached to the doors and some more broadcloth velour, wood appliqué and lower carpet frames everything in the passenger compartment nicely…I wonder how the other half lives?!
Peering into an original unrestored engine bay, we some surface rust, some dulling and some patina surrounding an HT4100 V8 DFI original engine. The DFI stands for Digital Fuel Injection and it is a throttle body delivery system as opposed to the EFI which utilizes ports. On back is a TH325-4L 4-speed automatic transmission. Plenty of bubbly “kick” with this mill.
Some surface rust and plenty of black patina surfaces are seen underneath. No structural problems are noted. Independent coil sprung rear suspension, and coli springs on front are seen underneath, as are power disc brakes all around.
I just cannot get enough of these buttoned tufted broadcloth velour seats. There is something warm and fuzzy as opposed to leather, although once leather is broken in, it is durable...but…I digress and this car started right up, ran flawlessly, and is a wonderful comfortable cruiser with a kick.
A luxury classic that runs well, looks great, and has room for bringing around some extra friends. I can imagine a night at the club, laughing at each other's success stories, and then riding home in pure comfort…mmmmmmmm delicious!
