Another day, another ’70s cabin cruiser. As is often the case, this one, a ’77 Eldo on Seattle Craigslist (Re: the location? No comment) was posted on Finding Future Classic Cars on FB.
I’ve always loved the 1970s Cadillac Fleetwood Eldorados. They were so huge, so opulent, so unnecessary. And yet, so compelling. While my ultimate Eldo is, depending on the day, a silver-blue ’71 convertible or triple yellow ’78 Biarritz coupe.
This one is available for immediate sale in Tacoma. With 63,000 miles and a $7900 ask, it seems very Klockau-tastic.
True, there’s a sheetmetal owie behind the driver’s door, but that’s a mere quibble.
But it does, unfortunately, have the optional fuel injection. In a nutshell, the standard carburetor was much more reliable.
But, damn, it’s so pretty! Check out that green-tinted Astroroof. The Brougham Aquatic With Steve Zissou…
And the green leather is heavenly.
I really, really like green interiors. With the Cotillion White paint, it’s a great combo.
Just look at it. Awooga!
Just a pleasant change from the boring gray and black interiors on today’s supposed lux-cars.
This was the next to the last year for the truly giant, large and in charge rolling parade float Eldos.
I did wonder why 90% of the photos had the trunk hanging open.
Maybe Paulie was taking Louie the Nose for a ride, and Louie jimmies the trunk and escaped, and Paulie gave chase. Then some dude took these pics because he likes ’70s Caddys, ha ha.
Anyway. A nice giant Caddy coupe, ifin you’re so inclined, and can deal with the nonexistent fuel injection parts!
