For sale in our Chicago showroom is a rare 1984 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible. Cadillac made an "open" vehicle either without or top or convertible top ever since the company was formed in 1902 but sadly the convertible was discontinued from the American auto market in 1976 and some thought that owning a new Cadillac Convertible would never be a possibility. By the early 1980's some noteworthy conversion companies such as American Sunroof Company, Custom Coach and Hess and Eisenhardt began converting the Eldorado into a convertible. This classy example was done by Hess and Eisenhardt which produced armored cars and limousines to royalty, dignitaries and celebrities such as Mamie Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy and Elvis Presley.
Upon first inspection you will see that this vehicle has led a privileged life having only 2 owners and spending most of its life in sunny Titus Alabama and driven on nice days. In addition to years of TLC this car has had the engine and transmission recently rebuilt and this car runs and shifts like a new car and is very smooth and comfortable to drive. The Air-Conditioning is nice and cold, those flimsy bumper fillers were replaced with high quality reproductions and the convertible top mechanism was replaced with genuine Hess and Eisenhardt parts. The glove-soft leather interior is original and looks amazing in contrast to the dark exterior.
This car was the epitome of 1980's luxury and included such options as a digital odometer, digital fuel information center, digital climate control, twilight sentinel, AM/FM Cassette player with Symphony Sound, power windows, power locks, power driver and passenger seat with drivers memory control, power convertible top with rear defroster, remote trunk opener and power pull down, convertible boot and tonneau cover and true spoke wheels. This car was fully optioned and was one of the most expensive cars of the era.
Under the hood is the original HT-4100 V8 that starts right up and runs very nice and smooth. The rebuild was done within 1,500 miles and this car really does perform like a new vehicle. If you have been looking for a clean and comfortable driver that is ready for the open road and enjoy all of those power options this beauty is ready for you.
