Up for sale is a 1978 Cadillac Eldorado Custom Biarritz Coup! This is an incredible find with only 28,000 original miles since new. This Cadillac has had one prior owner since new and has been garaged in California its entire life. Look closely at the detailed photos to see how clean this car is.

This Eldorado is loaded with factory options. We love the factory AM/FM 8-track tape with the optional installed Clarion cassette player! Seen in this car, are signature interior features, which include sumptuous button-tufted contoured pillow-style seating with glove-soft red leather and 50/50 dual comfort front seats.
The factory dark carmine red exterior is equally as distinctive. The exclusive Cabriolet Roof is tailored in a richly textured red elk grain vinyl with French seams. The heavy padding is designed to change the lines of the car; it changes the shape and size of the rear quarter windows. It has a stylish limousine-esque rear window treatment. Special accent striping, stainless-steel moldings, color-keyed wheel discs and Biarritz scripts affixed to the rear sail panels distinctly mark it as a Cadillac special edition. The Custom Biarritz is unique, even among other Cadillacs.

The present owner has spent considerable monies making this road worthy. It is ready for the next owner to enjoy.

In 1978, this car had a base price of $11,921.00 and once it was equipped with the Custom Biarritz package, a further $1,865.00 would have been added to the sticker price. The optional Astroroof would have cost an extra $2,946.00 for a grand total of $16,732.00 when this car was new.

This 78 Eldorado is a magnificently equipped luxury coup. Standard equipment includes: Automatic Climate Control with economy setting, power windows and door locks, six-way power seat, Soft-Ray tinted safety glass, AM/FM Signal-Seeking Stereo Radio with power antenna, quartz digital clock, and lamp monitors.
This El-Dog is powered by Cadillacs 7.0 litre 16-valve, 425 CID V8 engine equipped with a Rochester 4-bbl downdraft Quadrajet carburetor. This engine produced a whopping 180 hp @ 4,000 rpm with 434 Nm (320 ft-lbs) of peak torque @ 2,000 rpm. It uses GMs Turbo Hydra-Matic THM-425 3-speed automatic transmission driving the front wheels.
In its day, acceleration was rated as: 0-60 mph at a blistering 13.4 seconds, 0-100 mph in 47.1 seconds with a top speed in the 112mph range. It could do the mile @ 74 mph in 19.6 seconds. It is safe to say that an Eldorado is not built for speed, but these figures are excellent for an automobile as large and solidly built as the 1978 Eldorados.

Eldorados are specifically tuned to be more powerful than standard Cadillac models.
The Eldorado Custom Biarritz is one of the most refined Cadillacs in the history of the brand --- virtually the definition of extravagance.
A Bit of History
The Cadillac Eldorado is a personal luxury car that was manufactured and marketed by Cadillac from 1952 - 2002 over ten generations.
The title Eldorado was actually chosen through an internal competition to find a name for a 1952 concept vehicle which was made to commemorate Cadillac's golden anniversary. Eldorado was proposed by Mary-Ann Marini (ne Zukosky), a secretary in Cadillac's merchandising department and was subsequently adopted for a limited-edition convertible for model year 1953.
The nameplate Eldorado is a contraction of two Spanish words that translate as "the gilded (i.e., golden) one" and also refers to El Dorado, the mythical South American "Lost City of Gold" that fascinated Spanish explorers so many years ago.
Cadillac began using the nameplates "Eldorado Seville" and "Eldorado Biarritz" to distinguish between the hardtop and convertible models (respectively) while both were offered, from 1956 through 1960 inclusively. The "Seville" name was dropped when the hardtop was initially discontinued (in 1961), but the Biarritz name continued through 1964. Beginning in 1965, the Eldorado became the 'Fleetwood Eldorado'.
