Cadillac Fleetwood Eldorado Coupe
On October 6, 1966, a totally new kind of Cadillac hit dealer showrooms. The all-new 1967 Eldorado, with its razor-edged coupe styling, front-wheel drive and brisk handling, marked it as a major departure from Cadillac tradition.
An instant hit with buyers, who snapped up every one of the 17,930 examples produced through 1967, the Eldorado attracted great media attention as well. A 429-cubic inch V-8 delivered 340 bhp and 480 ft-lbs of torque, enough to propel the 4,590-pound car from 0-to-60 in 10 seconds – not insignificant for such a large car. Front-wheel drive, variable-ratio power steering and automatic rear level control gave it exceptional road-holding.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in January of 2011 at the Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa, Phoenix, Arizona.
340 bhp, 429 cu. in. V-8 engine, single Rochester Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor, front-wheel drive, three-speed Turbo-Hydramatic automatic transmission, independent front suspension with unequal-length A-arms, coil springs and anti-sway bar, rigid rear axle with single-leaf springs, traction dampers and air leveling, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 120"
