The Cadillac Eldorado was redesigned for 1971 to be a longer and larger car. The idea was to make sure everyone knew this was the top-dog Caddy that owned the road. Today that feeling continues in this example because its bright paint, clean lines, loaded interior, and big V8 continue to command authority everywhere it arrives.

This is the car that can earn you the white glove treatment, and so it's great to see a triple-white exterior. It starts with the factory-correct Cotillion .....
White paint. It has been resprayed later in life to make sure the good gloss shows off the quality sheet metal. This joins the taut white vinyl roof and whitewall tires for an awesome premium cruiser vibe. The clean white style also lets the brightwork tell its story. The front bumper dips down low like it's bowing to the waterfall grille. The rear bumper reminds us that the early 1970s still let these chrome kings hug the car's form. Plus, one of the coolest design touches is the trim behind the rear door. It was inspired by the first Eldorado many decades prior, and it combines with the rear fender skirt to give the rear an amazingly crisp line all the way to the tail light. It's this level of detail when new that makes it so important to find such a well-kept example like this today.

Another reason why we like the all-white style on the outside is that it makes the red interior almost look like it's radiating from within. Not only does this look bold, but there is a time capsule level of preservation here. So it feels like a true premium classic with nice leather upholstery, plush carpeting, smooth wood-like trim, and plenty of space to spread out. And there are even nice details, like the full courtesy lighting package. While this new Eldorado was larger than the previous generation, it still kept the personal luxury car attitude. The fold-down armrest, power seat, tilt steering column, and wraparound dash made sure the driver always feels like the priority. So it's an easy reach to factory features like the power windows, power locks, cruise control, AM/FM stereo, and automatic A/C climate control.

The 500 cubic-inch V8 with a four-barrel carburetor on top is the big Caddy motor everyone wanted... but it was exclusive to the Eldorado in 1971. That's why these are always such desirable cruisers. This powerhouse has an ultra-tidy style that tells you there has been some careful maintenance, and the way it fires up reaffirms the feeling of good care. We believe this to be original to the car based on a partial vin stamp we found on the rear of the engine block. The three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, front discs, and cruise control are all about making sure this true classic remains a true cruiser.

This is the kind of Cadillac charm that never goes out of style. So if you're looking for vintage elegance, this one delivers it from day one. Call today!!!
