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 dealers frustrated over Escalade production snarls

Wed, 20 Aug 2014 13:29:00 EST

Lincoln went through it during the launch of the MKZ last year, Jeep went through something similar with its Cherokee launch, and now the 2015 Cadillac Escalade has apparently caught the bug: dealer delivery delays because of quality control checks. Automotive News reports that Cadillac dealers have been waiting three times longer than usual - a month or more - from the time an Escalade leaves the assembly line to when it gets delivered. Worse, dealers are saying they don't always know where their vehicles are in transit, or when they are set to arrive. The situation has upset customers who have put down deposits and things have gotten so bad that some dealers have reportedly stopped taking pre-orders.
Cadillac says it has the delay, called "dwell time," down to two weeks, and it expects to cut that to a week by the beginning of September. The company said "a lengthy quality-assurance process on some interior parts" has caused the lag, the report citing additional issues with figuring out which vehicles should be delivered first. A spokesman said that more trucks have been put in the distribution system to work through the backlog, but it's clear it's still going to take some time to set things right, with one dealer telling AN that cars ordered in February and March still haven't arrived.
Brand chief Kurt McNeil said additional personnel are at the Escalade's Arlington, Texas factory to speed up the checks, and spreadsheets tracking every order have been distributed to field staff. Even with the snafu, though, the Escalade is Cadillac's best seller through July.

GM recalling Cadillac ATS, XTS, Chevy Impala over faulty brake lamps

Thu, 06 Jun 2013 08:44:00 EST

General Motors has issued a recall covering 1,627 sedans over faulty brake lamps. Both the 2013 Cadillac ATS and XTS are affected by this problem, as is the 2014 Chevrolet Impala.
According to an official National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report, "the brake lamps may intermittently flash without the brakes being applied and the cruise control may disengage" on these vehicles. The report does not state that the brakes themselves are faulty, but rather that "if the brake lamps flash when the vehicle is not slowing, a following driver may not adjust vehicle speed when the vehicle is in fact braking."
This marks the first recall for the 2013 Cadillac ATS, as well as the recently introduced 2014 Chevy Impala. In late 2012, over 12,000 Cadillac XTS models were recalled due to a head restraint issue.

Cadillac Elmiraj Concept brings big coupe style to Pebble Beach [w/videos]

Thu, 15 Aug 2013 22:15:00 EST

Two years ago, Cadillac absolutely floored us with the debut of its gorgeous Ciel concept at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. And since that droptop four-door's debut, we've seen plenty of its design language worked into the latest Cadillac products. Now, we're seriously hoping that history will repeat itself with this stunning new Elmiraj coupe concept, which makes its first public appearance in Monterey this week.
Cadillac states that the Elmiraj concept simply showcases the next step forward for the brand's Art & Science design DNA, and doesn't necessarily preview an upcoming model. But if you told us the Elmiraj was a conceptual look at the next-generation CTS Coupe, or a smaller, two-door version of a new flagship, we'd believe you. At 207 inches long, 76 inches wide and 55 inches tall, its dimensions are only slightly larger than the current two-door CTS.
Regardless of what the Elmiraj does or does not become, it's certainly a fantastic modern interpretation of the classic GT formula with its short front overhang, long hood, rakish roofline and petite rear deck. The strong character lines running along the sides and exaggerated 22-inch wheels round out the beautiful coupe, and Cadillac's signature vertical LED lighting elements are found at the front and rear. Also take note: the badge on the grille is a crest without a wreath, basically confirming our earlier report.
