1970 Cadillac Eldorado Additional Info:

Vehicle Overview The 1970 Cadillac Eldorado marked the end of perhaps the most storied periods in the history of GM. The innovative designs and unrestrained power of the 60's would grind to a halt as the bloated excess of the 70's and the suffocating burdens of pollution control choked the life out of Detroit's most athletic and design-forward cars of that era.
Behind its devilishly good looks, the 1970 Eldorado's high-compression 400 horse power engine generated a heart-stopping 550 foot pounds of torque that would catapult this 4,630 pound bad-boy-in-a-tuxedo from 0-60 in 7.8 seconds. Having shed a few hundred pounds from its 67-69 predecessors, the 1970 Eldorado was faster than a stock Corvette off the line. And, in spite of its huge power and weight displacement on the front-wheel drivetrain, you could smoke the tires from a dead stop and squeak them through first and second gear. Cadillac's gentlemen's rocket ship was said to "have the quiet manners of a country club gentleman with the soul of a rock star."
There is debate about which of the 1967-1970 models was the fairest of them all, but my vote goes to the last of the breed. It's clean front grill and exposed headlamps gave it a crispness and fresh design that perfectly framed the car's angular design and was the perfect exclamation point nearing the end of Bill Mitchell's venerable career and indelible impression on the automotive world.
This car is unique in many ways. With 23,842 produced in 1970, only a handful were produced with the special vinyl top delete. And although the "halo top" was an option, very few opted out and GM made the vinyl top pretty much standard fare on the Eldorado's final year of the H-body.
This car doubles down on it's clean, crisp good looks and unique lines with a special order Medium Blue leather interior (#420). Most black cars had predictably red or black interiors, but in blue this one simply jumps out at you when you see it, and the overall impression is just dazzling. When you step up to this car, your eyes are glued to the unique combination and the shimmering good looks of it's beautifully buffed black finish.
Finished in all original paint, with exception of some nearly indiscernible touch-up spots, you know the unmistakable depth and beauty of a true lacquer paint finish at first glance. The German's and Japanese produce some very fine paint work in the modern era, but nothing beats the look of lacquer from the factory. Then, when you open the door, you are surrounded by the unique and unduplicatable leather seating. Never dyed, never cracked or improperly stored, the leather is beyond compare. The process that the leather of the 1960's (and 1970) Cadillac's underwent was painstaking and truly an art. The objective was to make the seats looked seasoned and inviting, which required multiple steps of finishing and true artisans who stitched to a precise tautness that creates the look which is something to behold.
The chrome is gleaming and untouched from the factory, without pitting or hazing-both inside and out. One of the telltale signs of a true original is the chroming around the instrument clusters. Notice how precise and fresh each outline looks, which is a tell of how correctly the car has been stored and the true originality of an 18,000 mile car. The mirrors, door handles and switches are pristine and the power options work precisely as they should. The lamps are fresh, bright and the rearview mirror break indicator lights work as well. No dimples in the bumpers or creases anywhere creates a car that honestly looks like what you might have found on a Cadillac certified pre-owned lot in 1971 or 1972.
This car is a no-excuses, impossible to replace car, and is perhaps the lowest mile all-original example in existence today. It starts with a single click, roars to life and absolutely screams when you push it or floats when you ask it. It is a magnet for onlookers, young and old alike and will push any Phantom or Ferrari out of position one at the valet stand.
Priced at a fraction of what it would cost to restore a car to this level, this all-original and spectacularly preserved Eldorado is a value at any number, but at $29,895 you will never have another opportunity to replace this car.
