The first generation of front-wheel drive Eldorados were the true kings of spacious cruising, and a 1970 Cadillac Eldorado like this is the one to have. After all, it was the only year for the big 500ci V8 in the 6th generation Eldorado. Plus, this one is presented so nicely with a super shine on the outside and comfortable A/C in the original leather interior. So when a premium cruising coupe is at such a value price, it might not be here long enough for you to read all the details.
The design lines of this generation Eldorado are ones of legend. It's a true statement of personal luxury with the extra long hood that begins a crease line that runs uninterrupted through the doors, until it reaches the sporty rear kick-up. And the super-slick rear end was there to let you know the excess of the tailfin era was over - but this Cadillac still knew how to pay homage to its history. While you're checking out the rear, take a look at the bumper. That chrome king is integrated into the design better than you can even get on a modern Cadillac. And if its brightwork you like, the front bumper shines just as brilliantly. You can see all of these details so well because of the level of care that has gone into this Caddy. The sheetmetal looks amazing, and the doors still shut with authority. And on top of this straight body is a more modern shade of dark red that has the kind of gloss to highlight every crease so this Eldorado looks like a finely pressed suit. The original brown vinyl top is a premium touch that coordinates nicely with the new red, and it even gives you a preview of the interior.
Inside, you'll be amazed at the level of preservation in the original brown leather interior. Everything from the wood paneling on the door panels to the plushness of the carpets have defied the decades. The driver's seat has been worn in a bit, but quite frankly, you probably wish you were this complete as you approach nearly half a century on this earth. Plus, you get the kind of luxury that made these Cadillacs so special in 1970, and the kind of options that you would expect in a brand new car today. This includes power seats, power windows, power locks, tilt steering wheel, and the original AM/FM stereo. You sit behind the original Caddy three-spoke steering wheel and gaze at a clear gauge package. But it's not just comfortable for you. The flat floor of the Eldorado means it really does offer relaxed seating for six. And no matted how many family or friends are along for the ride, you're going to love being able to roll down all the windows with the touch of a button, and still remain cool thanks to the upgrade to R134a air conditioning.
1970 was the first year for the monstrous 500 cubic-inch V8 motor. And since the generation changed in '71, this makes for a unique and very desirable powerplant in this car. Because the presentation has been about authenticity so much already, it should be no surprise that this is a numbers matching car that's running what is likely its original Rochester four-barrel carburetor. Best of all, emissions regulations had not yet robbed Detroit of horsepower, so you've got an abundance of muscle to move this luxury machine with ease. There has been plenty of maintenance over the years, which means this one fires up and drives like a good Caddy should. The cruising attitude is heightened by a smooth-shifting three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes.
Complete with owner's manual, this is complete vintage luxury at an affordable price. Don't let this special Caddy slip away, call today!
