1970 Cadillac El Dorado $5,000 - $8,000

COUNTRY LIVING

Cadillac’s El Dorado demonstrates the finely honed body styling of the Cadillac idiom. Except for the tail-finned late 1950s, no era has defined Cadillac as well as did the excess and opulence of the 1970s. This was a time in which the luxury auto-maker continued to build bigger and bigger cars with ever-increasing engine capacities, despite rising fuel prices and

tightening regulations. Although the Eldorado was almost Cadillac’s downfall at the time, decades later we can sit back and appreciate the results of that typical American unwillingness to back down. This example has seen more New Zealand farm action than boulevard with the previous owner fettling it for luxury paddock transport across their own El Dorado.
