The Cadillac Eldorado is an Iconic name that begun in 1953 and spanned ten generations until 2002. Giving way to many variations is was always one of the top of line models and always considered the most sporting variant. From the large fins of its early days to the radical styling of the late 60’s then again in the 70’s, it was constantly redesigning its theme and gave personal luxury touches in the later years. The Cadillac Eldorado is admired by all and desired by many. Its power plants through the ages typically gave strong competition to other automakers whose line up of Luxury was just that “Luxury” and did not nearly have the performance of a Cadillac. Much like cars today personal luxury and incredible performance was a huge selling point and Cadillac always proved to be one of the finest.
In its 8th Generation this 1979 was all the rave, they were sporting luxurious interiors a more fuel effect and effective 5.7L that replaced the monstrous 500 and 425ci engines. This was a one year only offering in 1980 the throttle body injection took over but many people feel the Electronic Fuel Injected engine that used an on-board computer for spark selection was the best and most reliable application, and the last of the great ones. 1980’s Cadillac fell victim godly body styles detuned engines and much Faux Luxury options. The 1979 was world class in its Design and Luxury.

Its engine is properly detailed and correct with proper show worthy components, clamps hoses etc even the Metric Bolts originally painted blue by the factory have been redone to emphasize its show worthy originally.
The interior is beautiful, Paint is fantastic, chrome glass and trim are highly impressive. The car is fully loaded with all power options, Air Blows Cold, its automatic leveling system works as it should etc etc etc There are no disappointments with this 1979 Cadillac if you can fault it you must have seen something the AACA judges didn’t.
