When you realize that the word Eldorado is translated from Spanish
as "the gilded or golden one" there is no question why it was
applied to 12 generations of Cadillac spanning all the way back to
1952. Cadillac was known for luxury and these high end automobiles
incorporated all the latest and greatest of their time. No only
were they high tech luxury cars but they drove like them as well,
smoothly gliding down the road. They had significantly downsized
and abandoned their fins by the 9th generation, which this 89
belongs to, but they still contained the same level of high end
luxury. This 89 is a very clean car that not only has been well
cared for but also just was gone through and refreshed to insure it
is able to cruise the streets for many years to come. It is done in
a Black on Black combination that suits the body style perfectly.
The paint on it is very clean and still wears it's original
stainless trim, Gold pinstriping, and Gold emblems. This one even
wears the unique "Cadillac Motor Division Heritage of Ownership"
medallion on its grill and although they are fading came with 2
sets of Gold keys. It is clear looking over this car that it has
been very well cared for its entire life. It rides on a set of the
original wheels with spoke hubcaps and Cooper Trendsetter SE thin
white wall tires which are new.
You usually think luxury when it comes to Cadillac but the
performance isn't forgotten either. This car rolls down the road
thanks to the original 4.5L V8 motor that runs great. It was just
gone through and received a new battery, alternator, pulley, and
belts. It also just had the fluid changed out and any other issues
addressed. The converted R134 AC system was recharged and blows
cold. It also had the brakes gone through to insure it needs
nothing. The really runs and drives like new. The current owner has
owned many Cadillac's over the years of this vintage and all of
them are very high quality.
The interior of the car is done in a matching Black and very clean.
The upholstery looks good and there are no rips or tears. The door
panels, carpet, headliner, everything looks good. The dash has all
the original features and wears its original woodgrain accents all
of which look good. The gauges are all working properly with no
issues. On the center dash is the original Gold Series Delco Bose
stereo which works well. It even has its original Audiovox mobile
phone mounted to the center console which is a pretty neat vintage
feature to see in place. In the trunk you will find plenty of
storage space and the carpet is all clean as well.
This is a very clean classic Cadillac that has just had a lot
invested to make it even nicer. It needs nothing and is ready to
