1968 Cadillac Eldorado Coupe
In 1967 Cadillac transformed the Eldorado into a
whole new “Personal Luxury” automobile. The all new Eldorado Coupe shared the
Oldsmobile Toronado’s United Power Plant Package and front wheel drive set up.
The redesigned Eldorado was a very crisp and distinct model that gave the brand
a very modern and competitive edge in the luxury marketplace. The Eldorado was
an instant success and for model year 1968 disc brakes became standard along
with new safety features and by 1968.
I am pleased to offer this very rare and desirable
1968 Cadillac Eldorado Coupe presented in lovely Monterey Green Firemist
Metallic over White leather and black interior. This Eldorado has had a repaint
in its original Monterey Green Firemist some time ago and still looks very nice
retaining an excellent shine. The original leather interior is great with absolutely
no tears or fading. The driver door arm rest does show some cracking and wear. The
original black carpets are still intact along with the cars original dashboard
and vinyl headliner. The car still retains its original Cadillac wheels,
steering wheel, radio, and all of its original interior and exterior trim. This
Eldorado starts right up and runs very well, it idles very nicely and the
transmission shifts smoothly without any issues. The brakes feel great, the
suspension feels nice and is free from any rattles or squeaks. The chrome on
the exterior looks nice but does show a little pitting on the lower and a
couple bubble spots on the lower area. The body is very straight and accident
and dent free. There are a couple spots that are bubbling under the paint, one
on the lower left hood and a couple small spots in the trunk area. The
headlights are powered by vacuum assist and work well, all of the lights work.
All of the exterior lights are working, the reverse lights, side marker lights
and headlights are all working. Interior lights work, the power windows are in
working order and even the power seats are in working order. Original spare
tire in in truck. This Cadillac is a very nice original low-mile car that had become
increasingly hard to find over the past few years. If you are looking for a
very nice, well maintained and rare original early Eldorado Coupe this is it, an
extremely handsome and nice example.

To luxury automakers, long-wheelbase sedans are to China that crossovers and SUVs are to the US, so it isn't all that surprising any more when the latest sedan gets an extra couple of inches between the wheels to improve rear-seat comfort. According to Car News China, the next sedan to get the stretch will be the Cadillac ATS, which will increase the wheelbase by 10 centimeters (about four inches) to become the ATS-L.

Designed to go up against rivals like the BMW 335Li and the added-length Mercedes C-Class, the ATS-L will reportedly be built locally in China with an engine list that will grow as well. Currently, only the 2.0-liter turbo engine is offered in the ATS in China, but the ATS-L will get the full spectrum of ATS engines including the base 2.5-liter and the peppier 3.6-liter V6. This isn't the first time Cadillac has offered a China-specific stretched sedan either as the SLS dates back to 2006.
Our first drive of the 2014 Cadillac CTS was just published today... we really liked the Vsport version. And Consumer Reports has some even stronger words of praise for the all-new luxury sedan. We already knew that Cadillac had stepped up its game with the third-gen CTS, but CR bluntly states that the sedan drives better than its German luxury counterparts.

While CR shows plenty of love for the new CTS, the outlet still takes issue with some of the in-car technology including the CUE infotainment system - no surprise there. The testers' offer all manner of positive comments where the impressive handling capabilities of the sedan are concerned, with lots of drifting around CR's private test facility in evidence to bear them out. Scroll down to watch the CTS get put through its paces.
Cadillac will unveil the next Escalade in October, at an event in New York City. It will be the sole member of GM's large SUV family to not get a debut at the Texas State Fair, which we don't think is all that surprising, considering the kind of clientele attracted by the big Caddy.
The new truck, from the few teaser images and spy shots we've seen, has evolved with the rest of the Cadillac range. We've got a glimpse of its tall, thin headlights, which look like an evolution of what's on the current truck. Expect some kind of egg-crate grille, reminiscent of the new CTS and ATS, while Cadillac's CUE system should feature heavily in what we hope is a thoroughly revised cabin.
The event takes place on October 7, so check back then for more info on the all-new Escalade.
