1979 Cadillac Eldorado Base Coupe 2-door 5.7l on 2040-cars
Jasper, Georgia, United States
Selling my '79 Eldorado FWD with 350 V8 (this is the Oldsmobile engine you want with this body style.)
This car belonged to a local Georgia sports figure's mother, who has since passed. Rides like a dream. Low miles 86,XXX. I do drive this car, so mileage will change. Very dependable. I routinely drive it 50+ miles down to Atlanta. Just a few
surface minor rust spots, but not in the wheel wells or problem areas.
Headliner is sagging & needs re-glued. A/C does not work.
VERY clean interior. AM/FM Cassette with CB. WORKS, but some of the digits don't show up perfectly. I don't know if the CB works though. The power antenna has a mind of its own. Sometimes it goes up, sometimes it doesn't. The speakers are original & very "tinny" sounding. I recommend swapping them out. Sunroof. Power windows. Great, matching near-new Firestone tires.
This car was kept in a carport it's life & the sun hit the trunk area. There were cracks in the trunk paint & paint had faded to the metal. To prevent further rust, the trunk was sanded and painted with standard white paint, but will need a professional sanding and painting to look proper. This was done only to prevent further damage. The vinyl roof is in average/good condition, free of cracks.
I have a clean Georgia title in my name. Also have original manuals, window sticker & many maintenance documents.
This classic Cadillac is available for sale locally & I reserve the right to end the listing early in the event of a local offer. If you'd like this car, use the "Buy it Now" feature or email your reasonable offer.
Please don't contact me unless you're a cash
buyer serious to buy. I will not end this auction outside of the terms of ebay.
I am only selling to fund the restoration of a convertible project I picked up recently.
10% of the sales price will be donated to my local Civil Air Patrol Squadron for cadet programs & emergency services training.

The big news when it comes to the Cadillac ATS for 2015 is surely the addition of the new coupe model, but that doesn't mean that Cadillac has forgotten about the sedan as well. In fact GM's luxury brand has rolled out a few choice enhancements for the four-door to bring it more in line with the new coupe.

Among those changes that we spotted a couple of weeks ago is a new front fascia that incorporates the brand's new wreath-less emblem, and a sleeker front bumper. The interior has been upgraded as well with new trim options as well as some new tech including Siri Eyes Free functionality, dictated text messaging and optional inductive smartphone charging.
Though the ATS Coupe does away with the base engine, sedan buyers can still opt for the 2.0-liter four with 202 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque. The 3.6-liter V6 carries over unchanged at 321 hp and 275 lb-ft, but the 2.0-liter turbo four gets the upgraded torque rating of 295 lb-ft (the highest in the range) to go with its 272 hp. Some new color choices are also among the upgrades you can read more about in the press release below.
With recent news that the Secret Service has begun soliciting proposals for a new armored limousine, we've been wondering what the next presidential limo might look like. The current machine, nicknamed "The Beast", has a design based on a car that's no longer sold: the Cadillac DTS. If General Motors gets the job again, which wouldn't be a surprise considering the government still owns a chunk of the company, the next limo's shape would likely resemble the new XTS (below, left). But Cadillac hasn't always been the go-to car company for presidential whips.

Lincoln has actually provided far more presidential limousines throughout history than Cadillac. In fact, the first car modified for Commander-in-Chief-carrying duty was a 1939 Lincoln K-Series called "Sunshine Special" used by Franklin D. Roosevelt, and the last Lincoln used by a president was a 1989 Town Car ordered for George H.W. Bush. If President Obama wanted a Lincoln today, it would likely be an amalgam of the MKS sedan and MKT crossover, as illustrated above.
And what about Chrysler? The only record we could find of a President favoring the Pentastar is Nixon, who reportedly ordered two limos from the company during his administration in the '70s, and then another one, known today as the "K-Car limo," in the '80s after he left office. Obama, however, has a personal - if modest - connection to Chryslers, having owned a 300 himself before he took office. A 300-based Beast (above, right) would certainly earn the U.S. some style points.
President Obama has used the same armored limo since his inauguration in 2008. Known by many as The Beast, the Presidential Limo was provided by Cadillac and earned its nickname in large part because of its massive size, which isn't surprising considering that its Caddy-shaped bodywork is said to sit atop a heavy-duty truck chassis.
It seems the Secret Service may be in the market for a Beast replacement, having issued a request for proposals for a new armored limo. According to Motor Trend, Obama's backup limo is a leftover from the Bush Administration, so it will be interesting to see if this new machine will serve as a replacement for The Beast or for its backup. The contract is to be awarded by September 29, 2013.
The boys from MT contacted Cadillac, Lincoln and Chrysler, and Chrysler is the only one that would confirm that it is not pursuing the contract. Cadillac may have the inside track, as it has provided Presidential limos since 1993, but Lincoln also has a long and storied history of chauffeuring the President.
