We’ve featured a few Eldorado El Caminos in the past, but none with DIAMOND PLATE bedsides before. And as the ancient mariners used to say in their morning routine: Diamond plate plus El Camino will conquer the world. Let’s conquer something things.

I believe that Jefferson Davis “Boss” Hogg was never given a fair chance. The camera always painted him as the villain…but was he really anything more than a misunderstood servant of the people? He was constantly fat shamed for his appetite for raw liver (with coffee) and he was surrounded by entirely incompetent law enforcement […]
The ninth generation of Cadillac’s Eldorado (1986-1991) was a downsized E-Body luxury cruiser that shared its front drive chassis with the Buick Riviera and Oldsmobile Toronado. The product planners at Cadillac decided that building a convertible version wasn’t worth the tooling costs, ironic considering that the Eldorado name was first applied to convertible version of […]
The twelfth generation (let that sink in for a moment) Cadillac Eldorado was a continuation of the E-body GM chassis that put two feet forward with front-wheel-drive and an emphasis on comfort over sportiness. With the demise of the Pontiac brand, it seems that the speed freaks have moved over to Cadillac product planning where […]
The first Cadillac Eldorado was a Harley Earl designed 2-door convertible launched in 1953 that was meant to be driven with the top down by rich folks. By 1956 Cadillac started using the designation Biarritz to designate the convertible version (and Seville for hardtop) and in 1959 they had an Eldorado Brougham version that was […]
der of this next car had a moment of clarity when he put down the blow torch and said; you know what most custom El Camino conversions are missing…a landau top and windows to see into the bed. He likely when took another sip from his moonshine jug and got back to fabricating one of the best looking Eldoradaminos I’ve ever seen.

I know that an ’85 Eldorado is going to be a largely horrible car to drive around from a handling perspective, and performance from the 4.1 “High Technology” V6 is going to be painful, but I still am enamored by the idea of daily driving one of these. And this one has only 37638 miles on the odometer and is finished in a fantastic shade of prosthetic limb tan.

Folks into trucks are always arguing about which kind of drive system is better — many say 4-wheel-drive trucks are the best because you can drive through anything, while others say the basic rear-drive pickup is the best because you get to fish tail in the dirt…but, naturally, they are both wrong. The best kind of pickup is the front-wheel-drive pickup, particularly one built on a Cadillac chassis. Find this 1974 Cadillac Eldorado Pickup offered for $9995 in Edgewater, FL via craigslist.

Let’s take a quick trip down memory lane and explore why the DT inbox is currently flooded with examples of cheap classic Cadillacs, particularly the remarkable Eldorado personal luxury coupe. First, I made the statement that I felt like a geezer because I’m oddly attracted to a ’98 example the 12th generation Eldorado. Next, Jeff tipped us for a stunning example of the 8th generation ’67 Eldo, followed by Rock On’s submission of a ’90 Seville, and finally we found this eggplant ’85 Eldorado Biarritz from the 10th generation. Exhausting, yes? But at least we now know how we got to this 9th generation Eldorado Biarritz. Find this 1978 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz offered for $9,850 in Melborne Beach, FL via craigslist.

Tipper Rock On sent in a nice 11th generation Eldorado for $15k so that we could continue collecting our set of Eldos (’98 here, ’67 here) , but that is expensive and I wanted something closer to…I dunno…$3k. So I found a 10th generation Eldorado, which is only a few years older, but looks way ancient because of the non-painted/integrated bumpers and wire wheel covers. But, the price is right and the paint is a sweet shade of pan fried livermush or scrapple. I love it! Find this 1985 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz offered for $2,999 in Duluth, MN via craigslist.
