The Cadillac Eldorado was originally built as a convertible halo car on the
Series 62 platform in 1953, but became its own unique model in 1967 when
it was transferred to a front-drive platform and designated a personal luxury coupe where it survived until 2002. The big front drive beast won’t have good handling characteristics, but anything full sized from the same era is such a turd in the turns that you won’t be able to tell the difference. Rear-wheel-drive, front-wheel-drive, squid-wheel-drive (which is when you have a car that rides on live giant squid instead of tires)…you probably won’t be able to tell the difference. Find this 1969 Cadillac Eldorado offered for $11,000 via craigslist, located in the SF Bay Area. Tip from Kaibeezy.
This Eldorado is powered by a 472 cubic inch V8 that produces 375 horsepower and 525 ft-lbs of tire smoking torque. The engine is mounted longitudinal and is mated to a 3-speed automatic transaxle (turbo hydramatic 425) via a planetary gear-set and some kind of crazy chain drive setup.
The interior isn’t in particularly good shape in this car, the frankly the asking price is a bit high, especially when you consider this 1969 Cadillac Eldorado (with ’68 hidden grill treatment) that just finished bidding on ebay at $5,200. Use this sort of data as a bargaining technique and see what you can do?
