Manchester Township, New Jersey, United States

Up for auction is my 1976 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible, in Cotillion White with white interior and white convertible top. It has been garage kept since I purchased it in 2008, driven sparingly in season and never driven during winter. All original mileage (76,000+) and factory-installed standard equipment; I believe the paint to be 1x repainted in factory original Cotillion White with red pinstripes.

 

The car has been driven sparingly with care, and has a clean title/history. It has not been recently detailed and has been mostly sitting in a garage. Please contact seller if you would like to exchange phone numbers or see additional pictures Ė I will try to post more during the week. The car can be seen in Manchester Township, NJ if you are in the area.

 

Read on for detailed specifications and terms of sale, payment and shipping. Thank you for looking.

 

The exterior of the car I believe to have been redone in its original cotillion white. When I purchased the car in 2008, I also acquired a full set of replacement body fillers and painted them to match the factory Cadillac color. I only got around to installing the front right fender filler, which had the most immediate need. The rest can be seen in the photos of additional parts that will be included with purchase. The paint on this car has some sun fade but overall looks good. There is a noticeable scratch on the driverís side rear quarter panel. This car has never sustained any collision damage and has one small area of rust repair beneath the passenger door. I never even noticed it myself until the car was up on a lift. The white convertible top is worn and could use replacing. It was like this when I purchased the car. I originally intended to do some work to it make it show quality, but time and money (or lack thereof) got in the way and it stayed the good looking casual driver it is today. With the work that I never accomplished, she would be a gem. The car is complete with all of its stainless and chrome trim except for the hood ornament, which someone helped themselves to while I was out in it one night. The car sits on older but decent tread tires and red painted era-correct hubcaps that match the dash, carpet and parade boot (a nice touch). Youíll see in the pictures I have a brand new set of chrome plated hubcaps that I am including with purchase.


The interior is white leather. The driverís side seat shows wear and the vinyl armrest on the driverís door is torn. The rest of the seats and doors are quite clean; the back seat is immaculate. The dash is good for itís age with some dirt and fading and two small stress cracks to the driver side upper dash that are very small. Full working power on all four windows and seats are dual 6-way power. The power to the top does not work. It was in that condition when I bought it and I donít know what the cause is. It could be the top motor or as simple as a relay. I have been raising and lowering the top manually, but not often as I really donít ever drive the car unless it is top down weather. The red parade boot can be seen in the photos and is included. The driverís side view mirror glass is a bit loose inside the casing, and there is a crack in the windshield.


Heater/blower works but is noisy at times and A/C does not blow cold. It has the original Cadillac AM/FM 8 track radio, though it does not play 8 tracks. Power steering, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, front and rear seat belts, full size spare and jack in the trunk. Carpet is faded and worn in spots, but better than average for an almost 40 year old car.


The original 8.2L 500 CID engine starts and runs every time but could use a going through and probably a tune up. It does have a newly installed water pump. It also has a complete new exhaust and runs very quiet. The suspension is sitting a little low in the rear and could probably stand to be replaced. The transmission shifts nicely through all gears and the brakes work well with a recently replaced power brake booster.

Cadillac LTS flagship to bow at NY Auto Show

Wed, 06 Aug 2014 15:31:00 EST

There is widespread agreement across the industry that Cadillac needs a proper, rear-drive flagship sedan that completes legitimately with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Audi A8 and BMW 7 Series.
Fortunately, the same view is held within the company, and just such a car - possibly dubbed LTS - is under development. According to a high-level source at Cadillac, the new four-door, which is said to incorporate design cues from the marque's celebrated Elmiraj coupe concept, will debut at the New York Auto Show next April.
If the car needs a cheerleader, surely incoming president Johan de Nysschen is just such a person. De Nysschen doesn't arrive at Cadillac until late in the month, but certainly he will want a proper flagship to do battle with his old foes at Mercedes-Benz and BMW and old friends at Audi and Infiniti.

Cadillac ATS Coupe headed for Detroit reveal

Mon, 25 Nov 2013 13:01:00 EST

Cadillac wouldn't be Cadillac without its two-door models. But the XLR has been discontinued for over four years now, the Elmiraj concept may never see production and the future of the CTS Coupe is still up in the air. That leaves just the ELR, which may not be conventional enough for traditional Cadillac coupe buyers. Fortunately a new coupe is coming along to fill the void.
According to Edmunds, Cadillac will reveal the new ATS coupe just a couple of months from now at the Detroit Auto Show. Expected to mechanically mirror the existing ATS sedan, the new coupe will also more conventionally resemble its four-door counterpart than the CTS, whose coupe version was distinguished by a rakishly sloping roofline.
Expect the same choice of engines to carry over, with a 2.5-liter four serving as the base engine, and both a 2.0-liter turbo four and a 3.6-liter V6 offering more power for those looking for that extra bit of oomph. Following the Detroit reveal, sources anticipate the ATS coupe to go on sale next summer.

2014 Cadillac CTS starts $7k higher than last model at $46,025*

Thu, 13 Jun 2013 14:58:00 EST

The redesigned 2014 Cadillac CTS will be more powerful, stylish and luxurious than its predecessor, but it will also be much more expensive. With a new starting price of $46,025 (*including $925 for destination), the 2014 CTS represents a price increase of more than $7,000 compared to the 2013 model, but it should be more appropriately sized and equipped to take on rivals like the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which start at $47,800 and $51,900, respectively.
Available trim levels - referred to as Collections - include Luxury, Performance and Premium, offering either a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder or a 3.6-liter V6 and the choice of either rear- or all-wheel-drive configurations. For more performance, the all-new CTS Vsport model will have an asking price of $59,995. This 420-horsepower model is more powerful than both the BMW 550i and Mercedes E550 and about $2,000 less expensive than both.
There's still no word on what Cadillac has in store for a next-gen CTS-V sedan, but we're guessing power and price will both rise considerably. Scroll down for more info on the 2014 CTS that is set to go on sale this fall.
