This 1968 Cadillac Eldorado has a big V8, hidden headlights, a spacious cabin, and darning angular styling. And what was once the top luxury vehicle for the 1960s is now a vintage cruiser with all the right flair. So when this distinct Caddy is also so affordable, it's time to take notice.
The design lines of this generation Eldorado are ones of legend. It's a true statement of personal luxury with flowing details. The extra-long hood starts with a sharp middle point and begins a crease line that runs uninterrupted into the doors. And the same line emphasizes the sporty kick-up on the rear quarter panels. And the super-sleek rear end was there to let you know that any hint of tailfin would only be space-age cool. Also, 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 it's brightwork you like, the front bumper shines just as brilliantly. This really has the best of the 1960s everywhere from the hidden headlights (a two-year only feature) to the black vinyl roof. But the appeal here is more than just vintage. The Orange Metallic paint is a more modern respray that likes to glow in the sunshine. And everything from the painted Cadillac scripts to the later 17-inch alloys gives this a cool sense of custom/modern style.
The interior reminds you of what made these Cadillacs so special. It's a pillarless hardtop coupe with plenty of room for everyone to go for a ride. And the upholstery looks particularly nice with the button-top presentation and the houndstooth cloth stylishly breaking up the full dark atmosphere. Many of the original pieces are still here for display, like the AM/FM radio, power locks, and air conditioning (they will just need servicing to work again.) Plus, there are some features you'll love that you don't get on other classics, like the power windows and cruise control. You sit behind the original Caddy three-spoke steering wheel and gaze at a clear gauge package. And all the controls are centered around you because this is built to be a personal luxury machine. There's even a fold-down front seat armrest for a bucket-like level of individuality. But on those days when you want to share the comfort with family and friends, the flat floor of the Eldorado means it really does offer relaxed seating for up to six total.
The 472 cubic-inch motor fills the engine bay. There is an honest style and this V8 keeps its original spirit right down to the Rochester four-barrel carburetor. It's a torque-filled powerhouse built before emissions regulations had robbed Detroit of muscle, and that makes it easy to tune for some proper power. The unique front-wheel-drive setup puts the motor's weight over the driving wheels, and it also allows for that flat floor inside. So it makes for a solid driver. This coupe's cruising attitude is heightened by a smooth-shifting three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with front discs.
A true classic with the right colors and plenty of luxury. This is a great Caddy at a value price. So you know a deal like this will be moving soon. Call today!!!
