Up for bid 1978 Cadillac Eldorado Custom Biarritz Classic in two tone Arizona Beige and Demitasse Metallic Brown. This was previously owned by a 92 year old gentleman who loved and owned the car for about 31 years. This Caddy has 66k original miles and it shows well. This luxury car is rare that only 2,000 of this model were built and out of those low numbers, there were only 475 built with power AstroRoof. This is 1 of those 475 built and those number can still go lower with the other optional equipment for this Caddy. This was the top of the line luxurious model they made for 1978 and the last of the big bodied land yacht. It is a pleasure to drive. It starts right up and runs and drives good.

Interior is my favorite part and the two-tone plush seats are to die for. They are so comfortable like you are in a lazy boy while driving. Carpets are good, still have original mats, dash is good, door panels are in great shape, driver side seat has some scratches from getting in and out, rear seats are beautiful, passenger is in great shape, AC works good, heater works good, trumpet horn works good, some crack in horn plastic, trunk looks good and is power lock. Power antenna doesn't work, clock works, wiper works, cruise works. It has the sought after power Astroroof the works well. This Cadillac is loaded with many options. It has pretty much everything except the exterior temp gauge and CB radio. It has lots of power options, like power seats, power windows, power door locks, power rear trunk, power steering, power brakes, tilt steering, AC, power roof, power antenna, and much more.

Paint is still decent and has its fair share of imperfections. The hood has eggshell cracking just in the Brown part as shown in the pics, the rest still shines good. Some minor scuff in the hubcaps and a couple of hairline crack in the rear bumper plastic. Still a great cruiser that turns heads and loves the drive. Lovingly owned with pride and has always been garaged. Body is in great shape, no rust worries. Underchassis looks really clean.

Engine runs good, and starts right up. Tranny shifts good. We removed the valve covers and underneath looks amazing like it came from factory, clean with no carbon deposits. Always has been maintained properly. Engine bay looks really clean. Drive this amazing and iconic Caddy a true American Luxury car and bring back those good 'ol mem'ries!
