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.

2014 Cadillac ELR is making green sexy in Detroit

Tue, 15 Jan 2013 00:01:00 EST


In terms of styling, inside and out, the ELR hits the ball out of the park.
Cadillac has pulled the wraps off of its newest family member, the long-rumored, Voltec-powered, eye-catching extended range hybrid coupe called the ELR. The car makes use of the same basic architecture as the Chevrolet Volt, but has been thoroughly layered on with design, technology and performance tuning - with the goal of being a properly situated product for the Cadillac brand.

Lutz dishes dirt on GM in latest Autoline Detroit

Bob Lutz sits down for Autoline Detroit - Click above to watch video after the jump
Autoline Detroit recently played host to Bob Lutz, and, as is always the case, the former General Motors vice chairman dished out some great commentary. Lutz was promoting his new book Car Guys vs. Bean Counters: The Battle for the Soul of American Business, and talk quickly turned to his role as it related to product development and high-level decision making at GM. While on the topic of brand management, Lutz revealed a few rather interesting tidbits about his former employer:
All Chevrolet vehicles were required to have five-spoke aluminum wheels and a chrome band up front, as part of the Bowtie brand's overall image.

2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe favors cleanliness over radical lines

Tue, 14 Jan 2014 00:02:00 EST

Though you might not know it from looking at vehicles like the XTS and Escalade, if you take a broader look at history, you'll see that Cadillac models have gotten a lot smaller from the tail-finned highway cruisers of old. At least when it comes to coupes, anyway. The Eldorado, in particular, kept getting smaller until it disappeared, its place taken in recent years by decidedly more compact XLR, CTS Coupe and ELR hybrid. What you see here, however, is Cadillac's smallest coupe yet.
Revealed today at the Detroit Auto Show is the new 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe, the brand's first compact two-door coupe, and the first production car to wear the brand's all-new crest. It shares the same platform and wheelbase as the existing ATS sedan, but packs a wider track and unique bodywork that's decidedly more conservative and less unique in its angular styling than the CTS Coupe that it's likely to ultimately displace in the Cadillac lineup. Styling aside, the all-American luxury marque has engineered the ATS Coupe with a focus on reducing weight to the benefit of both performance and fuel economy, giving it near 50/50 weight balance front to rear with underbody aerodynamic elements helping it cheat the wind.
Buyers will be able to choose between two engines: a 2.0-liter turbo four and a 3.6-liter V6.
