  1976

 


Seven Hills Motorcars is extremely proud to offer this rare 1976 Cadillac Eldorado convertible
for sale.  This car has no problems, needs nothing, and is essentially "turn key" and ready for its new owner.  The Cadillac comes with documentation and ownership history back to new.  According to the most previous owner, this car was not sold new by the dealership in Pennsylvania until 1980.  It was used as a demo and dealer car until then when it was purchased by its first registered owner Harvey Brodsky.  Mr. Brodsky owned the car for 28 years when he sold it to a gentleman in Cleveland, OH.  He owned the car until earlier this year when I purchased it from him.  Copies of the original Ohio title from 1980 are pictured below and included with the car.

Cadillac's marketing department called the 1976 Eldorado, "The last of a magnificent Breed,"  with the distinction of being the final American convertible of its era.  The high build costs of creating these large specialized convertibles was becoming a large financial drain on Cadillac.  Weighing in at a staggering 5,153 pounds and sporting a 500 cubic inch engine on its massive 224.1 inch frame, it was one of the largest production cars ever offered.

 

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.

 vehicle condition

 
 

Exterior

The Cotillion White exterior paint is in great condition.  The car enjoyed a full professional new paint job in September of last year and as one can see from the photos, it looks gorgeous now.  The finish has suburb gloss and a smooth glass-like finish.  The fiberglass fillers between the bumper and body are notoriously bad on this era of Cadillac, luckily this car received all new fillers when the car was painted.  There are no major scratches, scrapes, or blemishes in the paint that have been excluded from the photos.  There are some spots in the paint that around the car were too small to show in in photos, but nothing that is really noticeable from 5 feet away.  The body has no real dents or dings and is very straight.  The chrome, stainless, and other bright work on the car is in very nice shape with no rust or notable pitting.  The convertible top works well and is in nice shape for being original.  Please note that the car still has the correct convertible top glass with defroster.  It has not been replaced with a cheaper plastic window.

This car looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.

Window Date Codes

Windshield: CI - The "C" denotes November and "I" 1975 so the windshield was made in November of 1975.

Driver's Front: CI - The "C" denotes November and "I" 1975 so the front driver's side window was made in November of 1975.

Driver's Rear: YI - The "Y" denotes December and "I" 1975 so the rear driver's side window was made in December of 1975.

Passenger's Front: VI - The "V" denotes October and "I" 1975 so the front passenger's side window was made in October of 1975.

Passenger's Rear: YI - The "Y" denotes December and "I" 1975 so the rear passenger's side window was made in December of 1975.

All of the glass on this car is original and correct as all pieces predate the car's body build date of January 1976. Original glass is a great indication that this car has no major accident history.
 

Interior

The Firethorn Red interior of the Cadillac is in very nice condition for being original.  The seats look in person just as they do in the photos.  They do have some cracking, but do not show excessive wear or abuse.  Please note that these are the original seat covers, not some cheap after market replacement.  The carpet is in excellent condition throughout the car as well with no holes or stains.  The dash is not split or sun faded at all.  Vintage convertible interiors are not known to wear well and the excellent condition of this original interior is a testament to the meticulous care this car has received throughout it's life.  Even very detailed items such as the power seat back releases that operate when a door is opened are functional on this car.
 

Mechanical

This car is in terrific 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 driveline was recently serviced with a transmission flush and brand new front drive axles.  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 a/c blows cold.  The only items on the car that do not work are the cruise control and the power antenna.  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 wonderful condition.  The pictures reflect how the car really looks in person.  Convertible Cadillac’s are highly collectible and make excellent cars to drive.  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.    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 or concerns please email or call.

 

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