Sold STRICTLY AS IS - it has NOT been inspected / MD INSPECTION NOT NEEDED IF HISTORIC TAGS are used !!!---------------------------NADA "Low RETAIL Value" for this car is $4125.00 - as of 07 22 2016 -------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I purchased this car in 1991, and at ten years of age, it STILL looked like NEW back then. It had 119k on the speedometer and the ‘overall appearance’ looked MORE as though it was ONLYnineteen thousand miles !!! I owned SEVERAL OTHER VEHICLES at the time, so this car was just ‘bought as a toy’ – NOT as an ‘everyday driver’. It WAS driven on a ‘semi-regular’ basis for the first few years, and has ever since (unfortunately) sat outside in the elements, barely ever driven - and it definitely shows. Since these photos were taken, a bit more of the 'plastic filler panels' between the sheet metal and the bumpers has disintegrated even further. It NOW has only 132,245 on it, but HAS deteriorated quite a bit - due to being SELDOM DRIVEN (and not garaged)for all these past 25 years. It still starts, runs, and drives,but, should have (in my opinion) a complete restoration. It has only ever been driven in snow/ saltTHREE TIMESsince June of 1991 - and has very little rust that I’m aware of (there IS some rust-through under the trunk lid in the area near where the vinyl roof meets the body and corrosion on the INSIDE bottoms of both doors). In the late 90’s, The ORIGINAL headliner was still in ‘nearly perfect condition’, but starting to sag a bit, so I had it replaced. Turns out, the ‘new’ headliner was a ‘TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY' - and has now, TOTALLY disintegrated !!!! – I still have the ‘original’ cloth that was removed - and it still looks like new –compared to the one ‘now in place’. When I purchased this car, I would have had absolutely NO reservations about driving it ‘cross-country’from here in Maryland ALL THE WAY to California, but now, even though it IS currently TAGGED and driven 'occasionally', I can make - ASOLUTELYNO GARAUNTEE -as to it's roadworthiness now. I know it will eventually need a new heater core (it was leaking and I just had my mechanic by-pass it), it may also need a radiator repair / and / or new hoses ‘in the near future. The tread on the tires (which WERE new and driven VERY few miles) are almost perfect, but they ARE older Kelly Springfield(Goodyear) NAVIGATOR 'GOLD' Radials - and one of them kept losing air, so I replaced it with a good (non-matching) 'usedtire' – the forth 'navigator' is now in the trunk – I don’t think the spare has ever been used. IT DOES have a 'serious' exhaust leak (separation of pipe / muffler at / under the passenger door area).
I have all of the service records since 1991 - and also some that came with the car when I purchased it. The body is decent and ‘overall’ pretty much 'dent n nick free', but unfortunately the car spent several months parked on the street one winter, and where the salt truck threw salt on the hood, trunk and roof – there are now tiny surface rust spots. The dash has also cracked. The rest of the interior is pretty nice for it’s age, with the exception of the drivers seat.
It’s ‘fully loaded’, with the exception of a sun roof. The RARE 'factory Cadillac' alloy 'mag wheels’ are also in pretty decent shape. I absolutely despised the fake ‘wire caps’ that came as standard equipment on these cars, since they tended to 'rattle' In myopinion.. I know the HVAC needs attention, the cruise has NEVER worked since I’ve owned the car, and factory AM / FM radio works ‘sporadically’(as does the electric drivers window)- italso has a factory8 track tape player. This would be a FANTASTIC ‘driveable’ PARTS CAR, – OR – probably a decent ‘beater / daily driver’ - - -IF you are 'mechanically inclined', OR willing to spend a few dollars to make it truly ‘road worthy’. I think the 1979 to 1985 is one of theMOST ATTRACTIVEbody styles that the Eldorado's ever had - I’d previously owned a 1980 Victoria Plum Firemist (burgundy) Biarritz with white leather - that was an absolute BEAUTY, and also a 1981 triple SHEFFIELD GRAY sunroof coupe. THEY were both driven daily and FANTASTIC ‘snow cars’.---The car is located in Cumberland, Maryland (US route 40) - about 37 miles south of Bedford / US 220(Bedford Exit off the Pennsylvania turnpike) or Berlin / MeyersdalePa. (160 or 219). It’s about midway between I-81 and I-79 (about 65 mileswest ofHagerstown MD via I-70 / I-68, and approximately 70 mileseast ofMorgantown WV) just off I-68. ----------------------------------------------------------------- ONCE AGAIN, THIS CADILLAC IS BEING SOLD “STRICTLY AS IS / WHERE IS”– WITH ‘ABSOLUTELY NO GUARANTEE’ OR ‘WARRANTY OF ANY KIND’----------------------------------------------------------------- A DEPOSIT of $250.00 REQUIRED FROM THE WINNING BIDDER WITHIN 48 HOURS VIA PayPal - - - FULL PAYMENT / Balance due is required within 7 days of auction's close.– NO CHECKS ACCEPTED (personal or cashier) UPON PICK-UP. - - - OR, if you choose to ‘have it shipped’ - your payment (in the form of a CASHIER or BANKCHECK - ‘MUST CLEAR MY BANK’ - before titleAND car will be released for transportation.
