For Sale: 1978 Cadillac Eldorado in West Babylon, New York

$24,900  

Vehicle Description

Unlike the Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham and De Ville, which both boasted the opulent d'Elegance luxury package, Eldorado did not offer a similar plush option. This was rectified late in the 1976 model year with the Biarritz (a name last used for the 1964 Eldorado convertible) package. The car featured unique exterior trim and the rear half of the cabriolet roof was covered with a heavily padded landau vinyl top accented with large "opera" lights. Body colored wheel covers were also featured. The 1977-1978 interior featured "pillowed"-style, "tufted" leather seating, while the 1976 interior did not. As with other Cadillac models, special order contrasting upholstery piping and exterior colors were available.

The 1978 Biarritz option packages consisted of the Eldorado Custom Biarritz ($1,865.00); with Astroroof ($2,946.00); with sunroof ($2,746.00) and Eldorado Custom Biarritz Classic ($2,466.00); with Astroroof ($3,547.00); with sunroof ($3,347.00).

2000 Eldorado Custom Biarritz Classics were produced for 1978 only, in two-tone Arizona beige/demitasse brown consisting of 1,499 with no Astroroofs or no sunroofs; 475 with Astroroofs; 25 with sunroofs and one was produced with a power sliding T-top.53 #fn53 Only nine of the latter are known to have been retrofitted by the American Sunroof Company under the direction of General Motors' Cadillac Motor Car Division.[citation needed]

The Biarritz option was available on the Eldorado through the 1991 model year and was replaced with the touring coupe (ETC) option for 1992.54 #fn54 Some of the original Biarritz styling cues vanished after 1985, such as the brushed stainless steel roofing (1979-85) and the plush "pillowed" interior seating designs, but the Biarritz remained unique.
