Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this 1965 Cadillac
This car is in nice driver condition,
rides like a dream, and needs nothing at all to be enjoyed. It
is in its very attractive and desirable original color scheme of
Sheffield Firemist over black leather with a black top. This
is verified by the codes on the trim tag, which is pictured below.
This car rolled off the assembly line during the first fist week of
June in 1965 absolutely loaded with options such as "Comfort
Control" air conditioning, cruise control, power door locks, "Soft
Ray" glass, "Guide Matic" headlamp control, leather upholstery,
AM/FM Radio, power seat, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, power
windows and power vent windows, remote control truck lock, and
As a side note, this Eldorado is not a dealer auction vehicle.
We hand pick each car after careful inspection. Our cars
come from owners who expect their cars to go to someone that will
give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did. We
invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the
car inspected. Please take the time to examine each picture.
We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel
confident about your purchase. If you have a question about
the Cadillac, just give us a call.

about our dealership
Seven Hills Motorcars is
Cincinnati's premier Corvette and Cadillac specialist and a licensed
and registered auto dealer by the State of Ohio. With many
years of focused experience I specialize in 1963 to 2004 Corvettes and
1953 to 1976 Cadillacs. There is no other dealership that can
better meet your needs if you would like to buy, sell, or just find out
more information about your Corvette or Cadillac. This is simply a
one man operation, and this is not my full time employment. I do
it because I enjoy it. I am a collector and enthusiast and
therefore look for cars that excite me. I do not purchase at
dealer auctions; each car is hand picked by me because it is special or
rare to me and because I like it.

Sheffield Firemist exterior is in decent driver great condition.
The body has no major dents or dings. The chrome,
stainless, and other bright work is in presentable condition
with no rust or major pitting with the exception of the right
front bumper end with one flaw that is visible in the photos.
The paint has a
smooth finish and a nice gloss. There are some blemishes
and touch ups in the paint around the car that were too faint to
show up in the photos, but nothing that really stands out from
10 feet away.
The power convertible top works very well with no strain or
binding in the mechanism and appears to be original. There
are some crude patches in the top visible in the photos.
Please note that the car still has the correct convertible top
glass. It has not been replaced with a cheaper plastic
window. The convertible
top boot is included. This Cadillac does appear to have
had some rust repair in the past. Also, the underside of
the car, frame, and body, have serious rust issues.

The Black Leather interior of this
Eldorado is in superb condition.
The seats look great and show no
excessive wear or cracking. Please note that these
appear to be the original leather seats, not some cheap
after market replacement. The carpet is in nice
condition as well with no holes or rips. The door
panels are in very nice condition with no cracks and unlike
many cars of this age, they fit very well and tight to the
door. All of the original wood grain still looks very
nice. The dash is not split or sun faded at all.
The power seat clicks, but does not move. The 8-Track
player visible in the photos still works as does the
original radio. The power antenna works and goes up
all the way, but does not fully retract.
This car is in nice mechanical
condition. There are no issues at all with the drivability
of this Cadillac.
The car starts right away every time, runs well, and idles well.
There is no smoke when starting or driving the car.
The car drives great with no
strange noises or vibrations. The car is smooth on the
road and highway. The transmission shifts well throughout
the power band.
The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the
other. All of the interior and exterior lights work, the horn
works, the power door locks, even the original cruise control
and power vent windows still work.
The only item that does not work is the blower. Not
enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive
this car, especially with top down on a nice day.
This Cadillac is in great condition. With
only 2,125 Eldorado Convertibles made in 1965 this is an
excellent opportunity to purchase a very rare car.

years and sell it for more than your purchase price.

the vehicle to take them out for the day or evening.
