“With a starting price as large as its personality, the Eldorado provided everything that one could ever desire in an automobile.” -OPUMO, U.K. design site, December 2015

The people at Hagerty Media captured the late-seventies Eldorado zeitgeist: “Yes, 1976 was a grand year for Cadillac, with giant lux yachts roaming the earth. Each of these fantastic, plush, open-topped conveyances turned in a curb weight of 5153 pounds and an overall length of a smidge over 224 inches. And all 1976 Eldorados… sported an impressive 8.2-liter, 500-cubic-inch V-8. Most breathed through a four-barrel Quadrajet carburetor.” The 1976 Eldorado was to be the “last year of the General Motors convertible” as Edward C. Kennard, Cadillac's general manager proclaimed in a press release on April 21, 1976.

While Cadillac would later reverse its decision, and to this day has introduced any number of drop-tops, there would never be another convertible as grand as the '76 Eldorado. In that sense, this is very much a historic automobile. The stunning red over white leather Eldorado convertible with white fabric, power-operated top offered here perfectly represents this iconic American-luxury model. With just 42,676 miles on its odometer—fewer than 1,000 miles per-year on average since new—the car's condition is absolutely pristine.

The Firethorn Metallic (code 36) red exterior paint retains very good gloss, not least of all on the long expanse of hood over which the driver enjoys a commanding view of the road. The convertible top stores beneath a power-operated “boot.” White double-line pinstriping extends from the front fender, across the doors, and onto the rear deck where the stripes from both sides meet. (To best assess the quality of the paint and chrome finish, be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) All factory exterior badging is in place, properly mounted, and in excellent condition. Chrome bumpers, front grille, windshield surround, Cadillac-branded mirrors (incorporating both shiny chrome and brushed surfaces), and door handles are all in excellent, well-maintained condition. Lighting lenses are clear and free of cracks. Whitewall tires and original full factory wheel covers are mounted.

Inside, the tufted white-leather displays a like-new appearance and feel, free of damage or even much evidence of regular-use wear. Front and rear seat passengers enjoy the same luxurious standard. (Front seats are power-adjustable.) In similar fashion, the condition of the door trim—which incorporates white leather, red carpeting, styled woodgrain trim, and woodgrain pull-handles—is excellent. Cabin floor covering is rich, dark-red, cut-pile premium carpeting protected by Cadillac-logo matching carpet mats. The expansive red vinyl padded dashboard includes four air-conditioning vents; a full-width textured-woodgrain trim piece enhances the lower dash. Power-top controls are mounted on the dash and the factory AM-FM stereo radio remains mounted. A red steering wheel with handsome parquet-woodgrain trim and Cadillac-logo center frames both a 100-mph speedometer and the automatic-transmission gear indicator.

Under that expansive hood, the massive 500-cubic-inch V8 powerplant (with dark-blue-painted valve covers and stock black air-cleaner) commands an engine compartment which is complete and clean but not excessively detailed. Expected, very light surface rust is present on some metal. All auxiliary equipment is properly mounted. The car's undercarriage shows no evidence of damage.

While the more than 155 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this '76 Eldorado in detail from every angle, including from below, we expect and encourage in-person inspections at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. Please call to arrange an appointment in advance as our showroom is not open to the public. And feel free to get in touch anytime by phone or email if you have questions.

Hemmings noted: “Today these ('76 Eldorado convertibles) are prized among Cadillac fans….” That's no wonder. It's not hard to imagine the intoxicating sensation of piloting this automobile with heads turning to see it pass. And it's probably not too much of an exaggeration to see oneself as royalty amidst all this Seventies Cadillac luxury. Feeling like a king—or maybe even like THE King—behind the wheel must deliver a true natural high.
