For fans of the smaller Cadillac Eldorado, we have a sweet example here at MotoeXotica Classic Cars, a 1989 Biarritz!
This is basically a one-owner car; its original owner took loving care of it for 32 years! This example is one of 7,174 Biarritz examples made in 1989 and one of 27,807 total Eldorados assembled for 1989. It has travelled only 25,xxx from new and was always garaged. Sold on an actual mileage title.
Made in October 1988 at General Motors' Hamtramck, Michigan .....
assembly plant, this example was bought new at Belle Plaine Buick-Chevrolet in Belle Plaine, Iowa. It spent time in Iowa, Missouri and New Mexico.
Finished in black (code 41), the car's paint and trim are in overall excellent order, reflective of the car the previous owner gave it. It has the optional quarter-vinyl roof and includes a dealer-installed Continental Kit out back and a chrome grille cap. The car's chrome and body-color bumpers fit tightly to the body, the engine bay is very tidy and trunk is in good, original order.
This Caddy rolls on Hercules Touring radials, size 205/70R14 at every corner; there's a full-size spare tire with body-color cover in the rear kit. Each tire is mounted to a steel wheel topped with a wire wheel cover. The spare tire has its own wire wheel cover. The wheels and tires are all in very good order.
Under the hood is a 4.5L V-8 OHV engine with throttle-body fuel injection. Linked to the motor is a Turbo Hydramatic four-speed automatic transmission (code THM440-T4). Driver convenience features include air-conditioning, power rack-and-pinion steering, power four-wheel disc brakes, cruise control, power windows, power locks, power sideview mirrors, power front seats, power antenna, tilt steering column and intermittent wipers.
Inside, the car's gray leather interior makes a good counterpoint to the exterior color. The front bucket seats look great., as does the matching gray carpet and complementing headliner. A two-spoke steering wheel looks great while the dashboard and inner door panels look fine. High-gloss Birdseye Maple trim (replaced the satin-finished American walnut used from 1986 to 1988) on the instrument panel and console was standard on Eldorado Biarritz in 1989. The center console shifter and a Delco-Bose AM/FM stereo with cassette deck and five-band graphic equalizer help complete the interior.
New standard items included an express-down module for the driver's window, electronic oil-life indicator, a more powerful Delco Freedom II battery, a revised factory warranty and GM's PASS (Passive Automotive Security System) KEY theft-deterrent system, which activated the fuel system based upon a coded pellet within the ignition key.
Previously optional items that were now added as standard equipment included a cassette player with graphic equalizer, remote fuel filler door release and a front license plate mounting. To deplete existing warehouse stock, the brushed chrome lower bodyside accent molding, optional through last year, was added as standard equipment for 1989.
The dip in sales was partly due to competition from GM's own Buick Riviera, which grew 11 inches this year in a dramatic restyle and had a production increase from 8,625 units in 1988 to 21,189 in 1989.
Documentation includes the original owner's manual and original warranty and owner assistance guide.
Competition to this Eldorado in 1989 included Acura's Legend Coupe, BMW's 635CSi, Buick's LeSabre Coupe and Riviera, Cadillac's own Coupe de Ville, Excalibur's Series V Royale Phaeton, Mercedes-Benz's 300 CE, Oldsmobile's Delta 88 Coupe and Toronado and Saab's 900 Turbo.
If you want a classic American luxury coupe, you would be hard pressed to find a better candidate from the late 1980s than this Cadillac at MotoeXotica Classic Cars. Stop by today to check out this survivor from a time when Paula Abdul and Was (Not Was) hit the music charts and the Dark Knight returned to the Silver Screen.
This car is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer shows 25,878 miles. It is sold as is, where is, on a clean and clear, actual mileage title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
