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.

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.

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.
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.
