MY 1978 CADILLAC ELDORADO BIARRITZ
Under Construction - check back soon!I will have to use a lot of superlatives to describe this car!
It's the most stunning and perfect 1978 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz I have ever seen and that I know of!
It was collector owned since new and has only 11k miles on the clock. It was even featured in a Cadillac book and I have all the professional photographs that were taken of this car for the book.
It has all the documents and service records from new.
Condition wise this car is the best car I have ever owned and I doubt that I can ever find another one like this.
The original “colonial yellow“ paint is extremely nice and I spent 2 weeks polishing and detailing it to perfect condition. There are only very few tiny stone chips, which are hard to find if you do not know where to look for them.
All the bright work is like new. No scratches or oxidation anywhere.
The car was always garaged, never driven in rain and came from Texas - so there is no rust to be found anywhere.
The opulent yellow interior looks like straight from the show room as you can see from the pictures. These are the softest leather seats you can sit it.
The original floor mats are still there without any wear. The carpet is like new as well of course.
There was never anything inside the trunk. It looks completely new.
The engine and engine bay are show quality as well.
The vinyl roof is extremely nice as well - no rust underneath of course.
Everything on this car works like it left the factory.
This Biarritz was ordered with most of the available options except the sun/astroroof. Everything else you could order in 1978 for the Eldorado is there and works as it should.
I recently replaced and repaired the complete brakes front and rear with all new parts, as they had suffered from storage. The parking brake which is a little complicated did no longer work as well.
I went through all the mechanical stuff, repaired the AC, the radio, installed a correct, original and very hard to find CB antenna, fixed some other smaller stuff, and would now drive the car anywhere.
The previous owner installed brand new Vogue tires, which look great on this car in my opinion.
The easiest and most fitting way to describe this time capsule would be to imagine its 1978, and you have a chance to buy a very well cared for dealer demonstration car, which is only a couple of months old.
The Eldorado comes with the smooth 425 engine which purrs like a kitten and a perfectly shifting transmission.
