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.

Seven Hills Motorcars is very glad to offer this gorgeous 1976
Cadillac Eldorado convertible
This car is looks great and is a nice driver.
We purchased the car from a gentleman in Louisville, KY who
was in his 90's and had owned the car for decades.
We believe that the car has been in the Louisville area its entire
very attractive and desirable color scheme of Calumet Cream, which
was a brand new color for 1976, over
Antique Light Buckskin is
original to the car. This is verified by the codes on the trim
tag, which is pictured below.
This Cadillac rolled off the assembly line during the second week of
January 1976 loaded with options such as tilt and telescopic
steering wheel, a/c, dual comfort 50/50 divided front seats, cruise control, remote
control right mirror, and also the highly desirable parade boot for
the convertible top. Please peruse all of the photos below to
get a true sense of nice and clean this Eldorado really is.
also note that this Cadillac is "number's matching."
The last six digits of the VIN, 202986, are stamped on the
engine block indicated that this engine is correct and
original to this particular Eldorado.
The Calumet Cream exterior is in excellent
driver condition. As
one can see in the photos
the paint has dazzling gloss, deep
shine, and nice finish. The body is straight with no
notable dents, wrinkles, or dings.
This Cadillac basically looks in person just as it does in the

but nothing that is really stands out from five or ten feet
is one hairline crack on the left front filler; there is a
specific photo of the area below to show how unnoticeable it is.
The chrome, stainless, and other
bright work on the car is in nice shape with no major rust or
There is a small dent in the stainless trim in front of the
right window and a specific photo of the area below. The
convertible top is in very good condition overall. Please
note that the rear window is
the correct glass and has not been replaced with a cheaper
plastic window. This era Eldorado convertible is notorious
for problems with the power top mechanism, however the power top
on this Eldorado works pretty well and has not been an issue.
The Light Buckskin interior of this Cadillac looks
The seats are in nice shape
overall and look in person just as they do in the photos.
They are not overly worn, but there is one spot on the driver's
seat where the driver gets in and out; there is also a specific
photo of that area below. The
rear seats are in excellent condition and look like new. The carpet looks good overall
with no major stains, tears, or holes; it appears as if it has
been recently replaced. The door panels are in excellent shape and unlike
many cars of this age, they fit very well and tight to the door.
The arm pads on the door panels are not cracked or split, which
is a very common problem on this era Cadillac, especially the
convertibles. The power seat motor runs and the seat works in some
directions. The dash does have a few small cracks and
there are photos of them below. This car has been smoked in and has no aroma
of cigarette smoke.
This car seems to be is in good
mechanical condition. There are no immediate issues with
the drivability of this Cadillac that I am aware of.
The car starts right away every time, runs
well, and idles well. There is no smoke when starting or
driving the car.
The car is a nice driver; it is
smooth on the road and at highway speeds.
shifts well throughout the power band; there is some slack in
the shifter as with most all FWD Eldorados we have owed from this era. The
horn, lights, turn signals, wipers, radio, speedometer,
odometer, fuel gauge, and the power locks still work,
which is another common problem on these cars.
Even the power antenna
All of the
windows work well and go up and down, but the left rear window
only goes down from its switch in the rear arm rest.
There are some items on the car that do not work such as
the a/c, which most likely needs to be recharged as all
of the components are present and the compressor is not
locked up, the cruise control, and remote trunk release.
As with literally every driver quality FWD Eldorado we
have owned, this car has a slight noise of an exhaust leak. The car would also probably benefit from a basic tune
Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to
drive this car, especially with top down on a beautiful sunny
This Cadillac is very
nice driver and priced to sell. It gets A TON of attention
going down the road.
The pictures reflect how the car really looks in person.
Convertible Cadillac‚€™s are highly collectible, make excellent
cars to drive, and are wise investments. 1976 was a very
special year for Cadillac as it was the last convertible of the
era and the bicentennial year.
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.
