Cadillac made the Eldorado its own series in 1973, and by 1974 found sales soaring with their newly redesigned model! To meet Federal 5mph bumper requirements, the rear bumper was new for 1974 and featured horizontal taillights underneath the trunk lid. It would be the last year to feature round headlights up front surrounded by a fine mesh grill with the 'Cadillac' script discreetly shown to the right of the hood trim, as well as feature rear fender skirts providing that classic long and .....
low styling characteristic. Inside the cabin, a “space age” instrumentation display added an upper tier with special warning lights, fuel gauge, and quartz digital clock. Today, the 1974 Eldorado is arguably one of the most beautiful of the ninth generation and highly prized when found in this condition!

This wonderfully cared for Eldorado Convertible spent its early years in Florida with the first two owners each maintaining possession for two years. In 1978, it would sell to Brown Brothers Cadillac in Louisville, Kentucky and stay in their collection until 2010! Their dealership had been in the same location since 1946 with an onsite 3-story building. It was said that they reserved space on the upper two stories to house their private Cadillac collection. Each car would reside in a climate-controlled environment and receive premium care whenever servicing was necessary. After leaving their collection in 2010, it would join a collection in New York and not trade hands again until earlier this year and making its way to our showroom.
With exception to the driver side front fender having has some prior paint correction, the balance of the entire car retains all original paint! The leather interior and convertible top are also original and appear in very good to excellent condition! The odometer reads just 32,756 miles today and it continues to run and operate like a new car! It is a terrific example that you will be proud to show and drive! We do advertise our vehicles on various forums and encourage all prospective buyers to call with questions or to schedule a chance to review this in person! Thanks for looking!
