BF Classified: 1968 Cadillac Eldorado

Asking Price: $7,500
Location: Northbrook, IL
Mileage: 120,000
Title Status: Clean

Seller’s Description: Up for sale is my 1968 Eldorado. It features a 472 V8 with the 4 barrel carburetor and a Turbo-Hydramatic 325 3-speed automatic transmission with front-wheel drive.

Background: I purchased the car around 1982 and as far as I know I’m the 2nd owner. it has 120,000 miles on it. The engine and transmission were rebuilt in the early 1990s and have about 20k miles on them.

Condition: The vehicle was mothballed in the late 1990s and has been under cover ever since. The body is sound but has a lot of surface rust on it. It would make for a great restoration project.

Body: The frame is sound and the body panels are all pretty solid. The vinyl top is trashed and there’s a bunch of surface rust. All the chrome/trim is in good shape and the fragile parking and tail lights are all perfect. Hubcaps are original and in good shape as well.

Interior: The interior is in good shape – door panels and dashboard are fine, but the wood veneer paneling needs replacement. The leather seats are in good shape as is the carpeting/headliner. All the electrical stuff was working when it was mothballed (power windows etc…)

Engine: It has its original motor and transmission. They were rebuilt in the early 1990s and have about 20k miles on them. It was running fine when I put it up, but have not started it since. The engine will rotate by hand and is not seized up. The Master cylinder and all 4 calipers were also rebuilt around the time the engine was done. I may have my notes/documents from then, but am not sure.

The vehicle is located in the suburbs of Chicago. Buyer will need to arrange for shipping.
