1985 Cadillac Eldorado Additional Info:

Hello Ebayer's and welcome to my Auction of my beloved 1985 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible that still has great bones, but is now a project car that has been sitting for over a year waiting for me and my son to work on her and bring her back to pristine condition. The problem is the property where I keep this car at, and the garage where I was working on the car, has been sold, and I cannot relocate the car due to other logistical conflicts so my loss is your gain. This Classic Cadillac is being relisted because the last ebayer could not fund the transaction so please make sure you have fundsin place and are ready to BUY this vehicleif you are the winning bidder in this NO RESERVE AUCTION!
I acquired this car from one of the leading Cadillac Repair Facilities in Brooklyn and the owner of the car before me owned this car shoppe and he was my neighbor and wanted the car to get a good home, so he offered it to me for a good price, and understand this car was completely restored in 1999 with a frame off restoration. The complete power train, body and all the guts of the car were completely overhauled, and I also have pictures of the car during this overhaul and restoral process, and will give them to the new owner with the car. That is why at present the car's power train is still phenomenal and runs and drives great but need a little fine tuning because after running for about 5 to 15 minutes she will stall out and it takes time to get her restarted. My mechanic has stated its a fuel flow issue and it could be a simple fix, or more involved but that will be up to the new owner to figure out. I will tell you that fuel lines are relatively new, and the fuel pump is only 2500 miles old. The car will also need a new battery. The suspension and brake lines are all relatively new and the brakes also have been recently serviced.
The car's interior is very clean but a good cleaning and detail will bring back the plush leather interior that looks so incredibly 80's and amazing, with no rips or tears. The convertible top works flawless and automatically but as you can tell from the pictures, even though the top for the most part is is excellent condition, because of temperature changes and lack of upkeep, the one are will need a patch or replacement of the entire skin. I asked around the Island at convertible top places and they indicated the top can be fixed, and patched for around $150.00 but you will notice the repair area but it will work flawlessly and look pretty good. The convertible real glass back is in perfect condition as is all of the glass on the entire car and everything matches and closes perfectly, with the windows lining up exactly to the convertible top and door jams, and summarily this car is very very straight! Incredibly the front and rear bumpers have no rust or dents and are in pristine condition for being 35 years old, with only slight rubber coming off at the edge on the rear and the front and could easily be glued back on.
I have a new set of excellent condition used wheels as seen in the trunk and brand new white wall tires worth over $500.00 that I was planning on putting on the vehicle this spring,, but due to the sale of the property they will go to the new owner!The former owner had boxes and boxes of spareparts that will go along with the car including extra doorpanels switches and wire wheel covers that alone are worth hundreds and maybe even thousandsin parts alone.
What's amazing is that even though the body fillers are compromised and will need replacement the entire body is rust free and will shine nicely if the right buff out and detail by a professional will be done. Additionally, you will see in the pictures that the hood and the trunk are slightly open and that was done to charge the battery and open the truck easier as all the doors close properly and line up perfectly as does the hood and the trunk. All the electronics work and the mileage is really 52k, because I remember the former owner had this car from 1989 when it only had 20k on it and I remember distinctly what he did to the car and the mileage it had at every juncture in time. Additionally extra rear tail lights and some of the insignia's will also be included in the parts box that will go along with the car.
For the new owner, you will be getting a very rare car at a no Reserve price as the highest bidder will win her. I would consider this car a project car that has an excellent power train and body, but will need to be gone through, thoroughly to work out all the running issues with the fuel lines and to address all the cosmetic issues as listed to make her shine and run to her original brilliance that was the 1985 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible.
These cars are going here on ebay for anywhere between $6500 to $20,000 in good to excellent condition and with the right owner buying her and making the improvements, the car will once again drive and look like the Beautiful Car she once was. Please don't expect to turn the key and drive her away, as this car will need to be towed and worked on with love and attention to detail to make her pristine again, but with care everything will come back to life pretty cheaply and easily as it will be an effort of time and love.
The good news is the power train is exemplary minus the fuel delivery issue. This car has a CLEAN AND CLEAR NY State title and can registered without issue anywhere in the USA or abroad. This is a NO Reserve Auction and will go to the highest bidder, and I only require a $100.00 Nonrefundable Deposit within 24 hours of the auction close and the balance paid for within 3 days. Happy Bidding and please call me or text me if you have any questions at 631-671-9067. Ron is my name. The car is sold as is and we reserve the right to end the auction at anytime and entertain any offers from local buyers.
