The Eldorado was radically redesigned in 1967. Intended for the burgeoning personal luxury car market, it was a “personal” Cadillac sharing the E-body with the second-generation Buick Riviera and the Oldsmobile Toronado, which had been introduced the previous year. Cadillac adopted the Toronado’s Unified Powerplant Package and front-wheel drive. Despite sharing underpinnings with the Riviera and Toronado, the Eldorado’s crisp styling, initiated by GM styling chief Bill Mitchell, was distinctive and unique, appearing more angular than the rounded Riviera and Toronado. Roadability and handling were highly praised by contemporary reviews, and its sales, 17,930 units, nearly three times the previous record.

Anyway, the asking price for this Cadillac is $8,400, which seems to be OK, but there is no indication as to how many miles are on the car, but it all seems to be in good shape. What do you guys think of it? See the listing here, and let me know…
