Cadillac Eldorado Convertible 1976 - World Of Classic Cars -

Cadillac Eldorado Convertible 1976

The automobile that seemingly coined the phrase “a car with its own zip code,” the Cadillac Eldorado defined American automotive luxury for 50 years. For a price seemingly as large as its footprint, the Eldorado offered everything that one could ever want in an automobile.
This particular 1976 Cadillac boasts a fascinating ownership history. Purchased new from Kerr Cadillac Pontiac Buick Ltd. in Oakville, Ontario, on February 20, 1976, the car was listed as a former demo for the dealership. Outfitted in Cotillion White over White Sierra Grain Leather, the car was further equipped with a power trunk lock, door guards, cruise control, carpet mats front and rear, and a license plate frame. It was purchased by Mr. Keith C. Woodword under the name of his company, Fairview Fittings & Manufacturing, Ltd., for $15,358.22, a princely sum at the time.

Interestingly enough, Mr. Woodward purchased six other Eldorados at the time as investments, as the 1976 Eldorado was believed to be the last year for the Cadillac convertible. The Eldorado remained in his family’s ownership until very recently, when it was purchased by the current owner, allegedly being one of the few cars occasionally driven by Woodward. Since then, the car has been fully mechanically refurbished to ensure it is perfectly sorted to be driven and enjoyed, should its next owner so desire.
Inside and out, this Eldorado convertible appears as if it just rolled off the showroom floor. Clearly having been very well maintained by Mr. Woodword throughout his ownership, it has been perfectly preserved for future generations. Hardly showing a single sign of wear, this would be the perfect car for the individual looking to own a nearly-new piece of 1970s Americana.
