Super Rare 1975 Cadillac Eldorado Station Wagon

Update 7/24/19 – This rare Cadillac wagon has resurfaced here on eBay. We aren’t sure if it changed hands, but it’s still in New York. It’ll be interesting to see what it gets bid up to.

From 1/1/19 – Owning a Cadillac Eldorado imparts an air of exclusivity and luxury to those lucky enough to purchase one. It is possible to gain membership into an even more exclusive club by owning a car like this Eldorado Station Wagon. If you want to own a classic that will truly ensure that you stand out from the crowd, then this might be the car for you. Located in Farmingdale, New York, you will find this luxurious station wagon listed for sale here on eBay.

The Eldorado is essentially a hand-made car. A standard Eldorado was plucked from the production line and sent to an approved customizing company for conversion. In this case, the cars went to a company called Wisco, who undertook the conversion. The owner claims that only two cars were converted during the 1975 model year, and after a pretty exhaustive search, I’ve been able to locate one other ’75 Station Wagon that was built by Wisco, and it is finished in metallic green with a white vinyl top. There is also one featured in the Wisco catalog that you will find below, and it appears to be slightly different to our feature car, so there may actually have been three built, not two as the owner claims. This particular car presents really nicely, and the owner says that it has never had a hit. Everything on the outside of the car presents really well, and the vinyl top is also in good condition.

It’s a Cadillac, so naturally, it wants for nothing. Power windows, power seats, an 8-track player that still works, leather upholstery, power locks, and air conditioning that has recently been converted to R134, and works perfectly. Everything is in really good condition, and the wagon even features a rear-facing third row, making this a true seven-seater.

Unfortunately, there are no shots of the engine, but we do know that it is the 500ci V8 which is hooked to an automatic transmission and sends drive via the front wheels. Of course, power steering and power brakes are par for the course, and the tires and brakes have only recently been replaced. The owner says that the car runs and drives really well.

This is another one of those cars that come along now and then and asks the question about what price you are willing to pay for exclusivity. There are certainly not many ’75 Eldorado Station Wagons in existence, so this is a car that is guaranteed to attract attention wherever it goes. It is almost impossible to place a value on this car, simply because it is so different. The owner has placed a value on it. He has set the price at $25,000. It’s not cheap, but I’d be willing to bet that if you parked this in your driveway, your neighbor isn’t going to have an identical one in his driveway.

    Actually it doesn’t look that bad. Balanced. Better colors would do a world of good. Loose the ‘puffy’ top.

    From the side it looks like a customized camper shell was installed on a flower car. Different, that’s for sure. GLWTS.

    A ghastly hodgepodge of period GM parts. Those look like Coupe deVille mid-side windows and midsize wagon rear side windows. Note that the car pictured in the catalog has a different c-pillar treatment that’s far less awkward than the mashup of angles and curves on this car.

      I agree, the rear top looks like it was cut from a Malibu or Buick wagon

      Thanks but no.

      @CCFisher The one from the catalog is EXACTLY the same. :) ?? Could be the same car even, if the vinyl been changed over the years. I agree this is one awkward wagon, not as nice as some of the full size DeVille’s we’ve seen before on Barn Finds.

    I like the 4 door conversions better.

    Leather?
    I can’t help but think that the seat material looks more like vinyl….

    As has been discussed here before, rarity does not necessarily equate to a high level of desirability. To me, this is one of those vehicles. I’d so much rather have the Imperial!

    The Dad of a friend of mine in high school drove an Eldorado wagon for a period of time and I don’t remember it having the “puffy top” this one has. I told people about it for years and everyone said there was no such thing as a Cadillac SW that was not a Hearse. This one does not look nearly as good as that one.

    This has to be one of the ugliest and most ungainly vehicles I have ever seen. And thank God there are only two.

    I love it. Why not do doughnuts in the winter with this thing? Imagine the whip from that rear end?

      It’s FWD, so you’d have to do them in reverse.

    Didn’t John Wayne have one of these? I kind of like it..

    Brian K, This is front wheel drive. The best fun is reverse donuts! Crank the steering wheel full lock select reveres and stand on the throttle! Great fun! Also try a little parking brake and see how short the turn around can be. I had a guy block me in and thought he was funny. Not only was I able to “Spin” the car (Series I Honda Civic) out of the spot, but also pelt him very badly with snow! Again, Great fun!

    It is different. Almost looks like they were trying to make it like a Vista Cruiser but without the glass. It would be a conversation piece at a minimum.

      So Ted… Can we say “you’ll be thinking about a bid here?

    I’m going to have to agree with the naysayers on this one. Different for the sake of difference alone, is not enough. It’s an ugly hodge-podge of parts. Bad proportions, very unsightly roofline. Of all the badly-done Cadillac and Corvette wagons we see here on BF, this is not one of the better looking ones.

    This is going to be a first for the Cadillac Diva because I never met a Cadillac I didn’t like, but this one is butt ugly. The proportions are all wrong. I’ve seen several Eldorado wagon conversions, and none of them look very good. Leave the Eldorados alone and stick with the Fleetwoods for conversion wagons.

    An Eldorado had an affair with one of the house staff, a Malibu Wagon. This was the result 😆

    Well I love it …😁
