1966 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible

68k Miles, Restored as Needed, Beautiful

Winning Bid: $44,000

Harry's Thoughts

I love Cadillacs from the 1960s and believe they are the next in line for significant appreciation. They drive well, are bulletproof and have classic styling. This is a great example of Cadillacs top-of-the-line Eldorado.

THE ESSENTIALS

We are pleased to offer this beautiful low-mileage 1966 Cadillac Eldorado that has been sympathetically restored as needed.  With 68,900 miles since new and well optioned, it is nice enough for regional car shows and would be a fantastic tour car.

This is one of the 2,250 Eldorados made in 1966 and the very last year of the rear-drive Eldorado convertible series. This is a very nice rust-free example that was said to have lived its life in the Southwest.  About ten years ago it was treated to an excellent repaint, all new and correct leather, refinished wood and much more.  The quality of the work performed and materials is excellent.

We love the beautiful and rare Florentine Firemist (Paint Code 97) that is an older repaint which looks excellent now with a recent touch up and polishing.  The paint is in overall excellent condition with only a 1/2 inch scratch near the engine compartment and a tiny chip near the drivers side fender marker light.  The body panels are nearly perfect all around, very straight with very excellent alignment.  The power convertible top looks new and is in its Sandalwood stayfast vinyl (Trim Code 6).  The optional wire wheels look terrific but show some white oxidation on the inside of the rim between the spokes.

The exterior chrome and stainless are in very nice to excellent condition.  There is one small dent at the bottom of the passenger side front bumper that you’ll see in the photo gallery.  It is very low and therefore very difficult to see.  The pot metal chrome is devoid of the common pitting that you often see.  This has obviously been loved and cared for its entire life.

The newer leather interior is in beautiful condition in a complimentary Sandalwood leather that appears be in the all the correct patterns and correct blend of perforated and smooth materials.  The wood has also been beautifully refinished and was obviously in nice original condition to begin with. The carpeting is also all newer and in excellent condition.  The dash is correct, original and in excellent condition with no cracks or issues.  The steering wheel is also original and in great condition.  The center Sandalwood horn trim could be refinished at some point.  It appears to have been dyed and has light cracking in the finish material.

The engine compartment is beautifully detailed and ready for show.  It is in stunning condition and detailed correctly.  It is obvious that this Eldorado has always been garaged as the engine compartment and chassis are devoid of the light surface rust that is so commonly seen.  The original 429 CID V8 starts easily when cold and is smooth and powerful.

The trunk is also fully redone and looks great.  The jack, tire iron and spare are in the trunk and also in very nice condition.  The spare is matching and well presented with the matching cover for the wheel.  This Eldorado comes complete with a shop manual, owner’s manual, top operations guide, service manual and more.

The Eldorado has received its 158-point inspection and it was found to be in excellent overall condition.  It confirms that this is a rust-free example with no signs of accidents or issues.  The chassis photos are included in the photo gallery and show this to be a well-cared for and low mileage original car.  The air-conditioning works well and has been converted to 134a Freon, the options include chrome wire wheels, cruise control, tilt and telescoping steering wheel, power seats, power convertible top, electric windows (the drivers side rear window is fully operational from the back switch and partially from the drivers door), AM/FM radio with power antenna, and more.

For more information and details, call or text Harry Clark at +1.602.245.7200 or email us at harry@classicpromenade.com.  The Eldorado is available for viewing at our Phoenix showroom.

Interesting Fact: The Cadillac Eldorado had twelve generations spanning five decades and was consistently at the top of the Cadillac line. Production on the vehicle occurred from 1952 to 2002 but carried the Cadillac Fleetwood designation from 1965 to 1972. With the first generation, the Cadillac Eldorado features a two-door convertible body style that uses a 5.4-liter V8 engine with a four-speed Hydra-Matic transmission. This vehicle originally went for sale at an expensive $7,750 which was equivalent to $75,000 today. Perhaps due to this price tag, or the power under the hood, the Eldorado only made up .5% of Cadillac’s sales in 1953. The design of the Eldorado changed greatly by the 12th generation, and the convertible style was dropped for a simple hard top. In the end, the vehicle was succeeded by the Cadillac CTS Coupe, but the Cadillac Eldorado still stands as a classic car with an extensive history over the many years of its existence!
