1977 Cadillac Eldorado 425 7.0 litre from North America
A car I will own the rest of my life
Passenger side trans axle, has become very loose and has needed replacement.
The car has a leak from the oil pan, a small one.. but a leak nonetheless.
The leather in the seats has cracked.
The passenger side mirror is hard to keep in alignment with the bumps of the road.
I bought this car from its 3rd owner recently. The man who owned it before me gave me a truckload of spare parts to go with the vehicle, so I have everything under the sun to keep this car going for years.
She sits low to the ground, driving her is like driving a couch, we are talking about serious comfort!
All of the internal components work - power windows, the cruise control, the antenna auto up and down, the original quartz clock still works and has never missed a minute, the air conditioning blows out crisp cool air, and in the cold months the car heats up within five minutes. Even out in the snow you will feel the need to remove your jacket.
The cabin is very easy on the eyes, for a car that is over 30 years old there are no cracks in the dashboard or any other vinyl component.
However the seats have seen better days, but still hold a very unique comfort.
When you drive this car down the road, with her fine lines and near mint chrome and paint, people stop and stare.. it's a badge of honor to drive this car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
