Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this 1965 Cadillac Eldorado convertible
for sale.  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 twilight sentinel.

 

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.

Exterior

The 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.

Window Date Codes

Driver's Front: GJ - The "G" denotes April and "J" 1965 so the front driver's side window was made in April of 1965.

Driver's Rear: LJ - The "L" denotes March and "J" 1965 so the rear driver's side window was made in March of 1965.

Driver's Vent: JJ - The first "J" denotes May and the second "J" 1965 so the driver's side vent window was made in May of 1965.

Passenger's Front: GJ - The "G" denotes April and "J" 1965 so the front passenger's side window was made in April of 1965.

Passenger's Rear: XJ - The "X" denotes February and "J" 1965 so the rear passenger's side window was made in February of 1965.

Passenger's Vent: IJ - The "I" denotes June and "J" 1965 so the driver's side vent window was made in June of 1965.

Rear Convertible Top: JJ - The first "J" denotes May and the second "J" 1965 so the convertible top window was made in May of 1965.

All of the side glass on this car is original and correct as all pieces predate the car's body build date of June 1965.   Amazingly, this even includes the convertible top glass and power vent windows.  Original glass is a good indication that the car has not been in a major accident and never sustained significant damage. 
 

Interior

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.


Mechanical

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.


Overall
Condition

 

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.  Convertible Cadillac’s are highly collectible and make excellent cars to drive.  One could enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than your purchase price.  You can fit your entire family in the vehicle to take them out for the day or evening.    We, as always, would encourage you to take the time to view the car in person if possible.  We have nothing to hide, that is why we include so many photos.  If there is anything unclear or if you have any questions please feel free email or call.

 

Thank you for looking and please email or call with any questions.
