Vehicle Description

1972 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible - White with Red Interior - 500ci V8 - Power Convertible Top - Classic Caddy Cruiser (Please note: If you happen to be viewing this 1972 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible on a website other than our Garage Kept Motors site, it's possible that you've only seen some of our many photographs of the car due to third-party website limitations. To be sure you access all the more than 145 photographs, as well as a short start-up and walk-around video, please go to our main website: Garage Kept Motors.) If ever there were a thoroughbred of cars... this is it. �€" 1972 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible magazine advertisement headline The copywriters continued below a photo of the Eldorado parked at a racehorse-auction: Eldorado Convertible by Cadillac. It has the lines. The dash. The spirit. And something more. Because this one is unique--even among thoroughbreds. It is the only luxury convertible built in America. The only luxury car with front-wheel drive, Automatic Level Control, and an 8.2-litre engine. You may specify American-made steel-belted radial tires, a Dual Comfort front seat and Track Master skid control.... It is the world's most elegant personal car. Offered here in white over red leather (under a white fabric top) is a 1972 Cadillac Eldorado that demonstrates exactly what Cadillac's slogan Standard of the World meant: large, luxurious, and 100% unapologetic. Showing 103,620 miles on the odometer, or fewer than 2,700 miles per-year on average since new, this is a cruise-worthy example in excellent overall condition. The car's exterior white finish is uniformly shiny across the entire, expansive body. Panel-fit lines are excellent, and body sheet-metal is free of damage. The bespoke chrome Cadillac grille--with quad rectangular headlights incorporated-shines beautifully; it is an impressive sight viewed head-on. Other brightwork-including windshield trim, Cadillac-branded side mirrors, body-side trim, door handles, and rear bumper--exhibits the same condition with only minor indications of patina from age (for example, on the door handles). Cabin glass is clear and undamaged; the white fabric, power-operated convertible top is similarly free of imperfections. All badging and emblems are present in their factory-affixed locations. Brushed-metal full wheel covers (with Cadillac logos) and thin-stripe whitewall tires are mounted. Inside, the car is an intriguing mix of men's club gentility and rock-star excess. The tufted, square-panel design leather upholstery is free of wear indications or damage; its promise of almost decadent comfort positively beckons. The car's expansive padded red dashboard is framed by the red steering wheel with the Cadillac logo on a 3-part woodgrain background in its center; wood trim (showing some fading and patina) extends across the dashboard to the passenger side. HVAC climate-controls are located left of the steering wheel; the power-convertible-top actuating control is to the right. The face of the instrument cluster and related trim shows light wear; the headlight-control knob is missing. The automatic-transmission shifter is column-mounted. A JVC® audio head unit has been added in the factory-radio location. The car's trunk is clean with the original jack and a mounted spare tire. Under the hood, the massive 500 cubic-inch (8.2-liter) V8 fills a clean, well-maintained engine bay. Surfaces here are original with no added chrome or other modifications. All components are properly mounted. Viewed from below, the front-wheel-drive car's chassis is complete and undamaged, with surface rust consistent with the car's age and mileage present on untreated metal. The Eldorado's factory-mounted build and identification tags remain in place. The car comes with its original owner's manual. While the more than 145 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this '72
