Seller’s Description:
The Cadillac Eldorado is an instantly recognizable classic. Since its introduction in 1952, the Eldorado has always been associated with style, glamour and prosperity. By the mid 1960s the Eldorado has evolved, and in 1965 it was in its seventh iteration, which included a major re-design. Longer and lower sharp slab sides replaced the dated rounded lines, and made it clear that this was the beginning of a new era. The headlights were now stacked, while the rear featured re-styled fins and tail lights, with a more squared off trunk lid. A larger displacement 300hp V8 429 cubic inch V8 introduced one year earlier was used, and 1965 and 66 models would be the last to feature rear wheel drive.
This 1965 Eldorado is an extremely solid example, retaining many of its original features, including original air conditioning. The car runs and drives well, and plainly said… is an awful lot of fun. Done in tasteful colors (Grey over Black) it's a classy color combination, but will benefit from a good buffing. There are some minor defects shown in the pictures as well as the occasional touchup. Most importantly, this car is a very solid Eldorado. Many examples on the market have been sadly neglected over the years, and often poorly repaired with excessive body filler. We went over this car thoroughly with a magnet and were very pleased with the results.
Inside, the interior is very tidy with no cracks in the dashboard. Front and rear seats are in great condition, with a CD player mounted beneath the passenger side dashboard. This Eldorado will show better with a through detailing. Original owners/service manuals are included, as is the jack and spare tire in the trunk. Glass is good all around, including the soft top rear window, and the top material is in excellent condition. The top does require some help to get it moving in the upright position, however you can hear the electric motor running. The trunk features the original floor mat, as well as inner fender panels. There are no signs of rust in the trunk or rear inner fenders.
Overall, this is a very usable example with the potential to be taken to the next level. The wide white wall tires add a classic touch, reminding occupants that while it runs and drives like a modern automobile… it is a collectable Cadillac!
