For Sale: 1971 Cadillac Eldorado in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

This 1971 Cadillac Fleetwood Eldorado convertible inspires you to get in and drive. It has a cruiser-ready look, and the cold-blowing A/C, spacious interior, and big numbers-matching V8 make this feel like the effortless cruiser you know a classic Caddy should be.

A long white caddy with a white convertible top has an instant premium appeal. And this one likes to look quite complete with details like the fender skirts, turbine-style wheel covers, and ornate hood ornament leading the way. The big and bright chrome bumpers have the right degree of Cadillac style. Plus, the upgraded crystal-clear headlights add shine during the day and let you see better at night. This is a nice value price that lets you budget for anything you want to restore/upgrade on the paint and body. But the way it looks today gives you that ideal mix of a complete package in a very driver-friendly style. So it's a true, easy cruiser.

Part of the easy cruiser attitude also means a comfy interior. The full black package looks quite attractive, and when you take the top down, the black and white combo has all the appeal of formalwear. Part of this impressiveness has to do with the details. Later in life, there looks to have been investments in the upholstery, dash, carpeting, and wood-like trim. It means this spacious interior is also quite inviting. The attraction is also because you're loaded with the best features like a power seat, power windows, the stock AM/FM stereo, and a convertible power top. There's a vintage and preserved style right down to the working courtesy lights. There are a few well-integrated upgrades, like a clean wood-rimmed steering wheel that fits the premium style of the Eldorado (a stock unit also comes with the sale.) And the factory air conditioning is now blowing cold with modern R134 refrigerant to keep the top-down drives comfortable.

The 500 cubic-inch V8 four-barrel carburetor on top is the big Caddy motor everyone wants, and this is the numbers-matching unit. It has a clean and tidy style that tells you there has been some good maintenance here. You'll even spot nice details like the newer hoses and alternator. It makes for a strong runner and an attractive cruiser. The three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, front discs, and cruise control all help emphasize this mission of a truly easy-driving classic.

The sale comes complete with a service manual and maintenance receipts. It's impressive you can get such a feature-filled drop-top classic Caddy for such an affordable price. So don't let this deal slip away. Call now!
