Classic American Beauty in Phoenician Ivory

You're golden in this 1976 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible, the only convertible built in America at the time, and the last factory production Cadillac convertible. You're lucky you don't have to scout the jungles of South America to find this El Dorado, we have it here at Art & Speed in Collierville, TN!

This car is big and beautiful, nearly nineteen feet long, and wears its original colors of Phoenician Ivory over black leather. The car benefitted from a light respray, not having needed any body work. Although not a competitive show car, this rare color combination presents beautifully on the Eldorado.

Slide behind the wheel and settle into luxurious black leather seats fit for a king. Take note of the standard comfort and convenience features: Six-way power seats, power windows and door locks, automatic climate control, AM/FM signal seeking radio with automatic power antenna, three-speed wipers, and a quartz digital clock. The interior is in very good condition, from the seats to the carpets to the door panels and dash, including gauges and knobs.

Look through the windshield over the gargantuan hood and ponder the massive 8.2-liter/500 cubic inch V8 engine lurking beneath. Sure, emissions regulations hampered power, but the motor develops surprising torque, and the engineering remains impressive. The engine casting is high in nickel, and is only slightly heavier than a Chevy 350. The front-wheel-drive configuration with, internally—a THM-400 transmission, was compact and eliminated torque steer, an accomplishment still eluding newer vehicles. If you really need more horsepower, the engine hungrily responds to a relatively straightforward aftermarket EFI conversion and the addition of headers, work that the Art & Speed Garage conveniently performs.

Put the automatic transmission in gear and experience standard Cadillac Eldorado drivability features: Automatic parking brake release, automatic level control, variable ratio power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and steel belted radial ply tires. The 1976 Cadillac Eldorado floats like a cloud.

While not actually “the last American convertible,” as touted by GM in 1976, we'll probably never see ragtop land yachts like the Eldorado convertible produced again, making them the grand finale of a bygone era. The last of an illustrious breed of the American luxury convertible, it doesn't have to be the end of the line for you. Call Art & Speed today at (901) 850-0507.
