For Sale: 1955 Cadillac Eldorado in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Atlanta is proud to present this 1955 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible. To refer to the Cadillac Eldorado as a classic car is not sufficient. Even the term prestigious car doesn't fully embrace what this legendary car has meant for its generations of owners. In 1955, stylish, high and slender tailfins were added to the rear end, which distinguished the El Dorado from the standard line. Other car brands had bulky fins, but Eldorado's were sleek and new. Also included in the production Eldorado convertible were monogram plates on the doors, wire wheels, and custom interior trimmings with the Cadillac crest embossed on the seat bolsters. This 1955 Eldorado went through an extensive restoration in the early 2000's with many receipts for all the work that was completed during the restoration process. This Cadillac is painted Black with a Black and White Leather interior. Powering this Cadillac is a 5.4 Liter 331 Cubic Inch V8 making 250 Horsepower from the factory. Power is sent to the wheels is a 4-Speed Hydra-Matic Automatic Transmission. Owner has provided receipts for the engine and transmission rebuild, contact the sales staff today and we can scan some receipts over to you. The interior was completely refinished from carpet to seats with the receipts to back it up. This vehicle is a 3-owner vehicle, the current owner got the vehicle from his father who was the second owner and has been in the family since the 80's. Options on this 1955 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible include: AM/FM Radio, Power Convertible Top, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Power Windows, and Clock. Though the Eldorado hasn't been in production since 2002, there are hundreds of classic car clubs that feature the vehicle in its various generations. Some owners belong to clubs that are generation specific, while others are part of Cadillac clubs and forums that keep in touch so that they continue to have access to information about car club rides, and the all-important search for replacement parts as these cars age. Eldorado fans are a breed unto themselves, because they not only are authorities on the cars they own, but they are also history buffs with plenty of first hand experiences to share. Some grew up with the original cars and still own them. With the odometer showing 26,242 miles this Cadillac has many more years for enjoyment cruising the roads with your friends or grandchildren.
