1978 Cadillac Eldorado

1978 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz

Biarritz. / ('b??r?ts, b??'r?ts, French bjarits) / noun. a town in SW France, on the Bay of Biscay: famous resort, patronized by Napoleon III and by Queen Victoria and Edward VII of Great Britain and Ireland.

1978 was the last breaths of the 'big\" Eldorado, and this one's bathed body in Sterling Blue and shows well. It still shines and I would call this large piece of Detroit iron \"super fly\"! Nicely preserved, blue leather interior with more comforts of home than...well, home, and except for its inability to drive itself, (which cars of today actually do), you'll be plenty comfy in this land yacht.

Exterior
Straight rust free large and in charge steel panels adorn this car. They dance very nicely with big chrome reserved for the grille, dual square headlight bezels, bumper, and trimmings. A fully padded landau vinyl padded top sports a vertical opera window and the rear quarters make the sides for the NYC 2-bedroom apartment sized trunk. On the back are vertical cathedral style taillights surrounded by chrome and these surrounds form the rear bumper seamlessly. Big dog dish wheel coverings with blue accenting and a Cadillac crest in their centers highlight medium wide white wall tires with plenty of tread. This car is a real old fashioned BIG car and there is a lot to love.

Interior
Yards of blue leather cover the \"pillow\" style seats all complete with their personal armrests and window toggles on the adjacent doors as well as the obligatory ashtrays...smoke em if ya got em! Square buttons also abound and accentuate the pillow tufting going on with these personal recliners. Plenty of wood grain applique mix with blue leather and lighter blue carpet to make one think they are spending a night at the Ritz circa 1978. Options abound such as cruise control, power antenna, power locks, windows and mirrors, and the power seats as well as rear window defogger. All this is neatly packaged into the blue vinyl and wood applique dash. A new factory Delco stereo with speakers and cassette capabilities is installed with yellow LED readouts. Also, a factory CB radio microphone is hanging from the dash and is all operated from this handset. Bone up on your 10-code talk.

Drivetrain
A big 425ci V8 with a single 4-barrel carburetor is on top. A TH425 3-speed automatic is on the back and 2.73 final drive ratio puts the power to the ground. This is a front wheel drive car so look MA! NO HUMP!!

Undercarriage
All good with plenty of undercoating, solid steel and straight rust-free floor pans. A slight bit of corrosion is noted on some suspension parts, but front axles, rubber seals and upper and lower ball joints are appearing in good condition. Power disc brakes bring this massive luxury liner to a stop.

Drive-Ability
Started right up and idled smoothly, and of course has a cloud like ride. That suspension combined with the pillowy leather seats, and you barely know you are moving. It has good acceleration, and the brakes work great. All power conveniences also work as they should.

Driving and owning this rare and initially very expensive car, one can only dream of the original owner and what they did. When in this all original beauty, you are truly large and in charge. Even the name Biarritz evokes high cotton.
