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.

Following a stop-delivery order for its new midsize trucks and a rash of recent recalls, General Motors is issuing three more campaigns covering 60,575 vehicles in North America with 57,182 of them in the US. As of October 1, the automaker has issued a total of 74 recalls (see the ridiculously long chart to the right) this year covering 26,495,070 units in the US.
Tue, 14 Jan 2014 12:58:00 EST
The largest campaign covers 46,873 examples in the US of the 2008-2009 Pontiac G8 and 2011-2013 Chevrolet Caprice Police Patrol Vehicle imported from Australia. It's possible for the driver's knee to hit the key and make it move from the "Run" to "ACC" position while driving. GM says its Holden division is developing a fixed-blade key that's supposed to fix the problem by only allowing it to rotate toward the "On" position. There has been one crash caused by this fault but no injuries or fatalities.
The second recall is for 10,005 units of the 2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V and 2006-2007 Cadillac STS-V because "the fuel pump module electrical terminal may overheat." This can cause a flange to melt and allow the pump to leak fuel. GM specifies that the remedy for the CTS-V is replacing the fuel module and fuel tank jumper harness, but it doesn't specify how the STS-V is being repaired.
Cadillac introduced its new ATS Coupe at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show today, bringing customers an alternative to the growing range of sport luxury coupes typified by the BMW 4 Series, Audi A5 and Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe.

The ATS Coupe, as a slightly more premium offering, ditches the wheezy 2.5-liter engine found in the basic ATS Sedan, but retains the four-door's 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder and 3.6-liter V6. That four-pot turbo benefits from a fettling that has increased torque from 260 pound-feet to 295, although its peak is only available from 3,000 rpm to 4,600 rpm, unlike in the sedan, where peak twist arrives at just 1,700 rpm and sticks around until 5,500 rpm.
Power can be channeled to either the rear or all four wheels by the owner's choice of a Tremec six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. According to Cadillac, the new Coupe can get to 60 in 5.6 seconds when fitted with the 2.0-liter turbo.
Details about the hotly anticipated 2016 Cadillac ATS-V are tumbling out, and they look to be everything we could ask for in a high-performance Caddy coupe.
According to Road & Track, the ATS-V will use a version of the twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V6 from the CTS Vsport, but the wick will be turned up to 450 horsepower and 445 pound-feet of torque. In glorious news for driving enthusiasts everywhere, that potent mill will be available with either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic.
According to R&T, the engine has a heap of high-performance tech to let it make the extra ponies, including titanium connecting rods, two water-to-air intercoolers, titanium turbines for the turbos and an additional radiator dedicated to cooling the gearbox and electronically locking differential. Keeping it all planted are a set of Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, and a suspension with 50 percent more roll stiffness.
