Previous Owner Stated: I had the motor and transmission rebuilt. Rebuilt the engine and tranny and has less than 1,000 miles on them. I started the restoration by tackling the biggest problems first. I had the original Eldorado
engine completely torn down and rebuilt with all new parts. I likewise had the transmission completely rebuilt. The car drove when I bought it, but I was informed that it had a up-shift problem. I also determined a slight knock in the engine, so I had them both rebuilt. Included in that rebuilding and continuing to this day, I have installed a new starter motor, water pump, Alternator, rebuilt carburetor, power steering pump, new master cylinder, shocks, wires, rotor and plugs, new AC compressor, dual exhausts, and Stereo. Had the driver and passenger power windows repaired, and numerous other things I have probably forgotten. I spent $550.00 just to have the stainless steel wheel covers restored like new, and $80 for four new Cadillac insignias. I spent $40 plus shipping for that front five inch piece of hood ornament. There are lots of such little things that cost me a fortune. I had new weather stripping installed on both doors ($175). The undercarriage seems solid. What is left to do is relatively minor compared to what I have done. I just can't keep up with it any longer in my condition. The interior has no tears, the headliner, dash and carpeting is in good shape. The trunk is very clean. I have spent about $15,000 in restoration since buying this car. It's a real head-turner. I will be happy to answer any and all questions that you might have. Whoever buys this car is basically getting $10,000 of free restoration thrown in with the asking price. New Paint job in original Cadillac color. New exhaust system, New wide white tires. Polished chrome and original wheel covers .
Very nice Eldorado, new mechanicals and new paint !!
Description of car and appraisal
This 1968 Cadillac Eldorado is in very good Driver Quality Condition, the reason I say that is that it is in need of some cosmetic issues. The interior looks to be in good shape but there are still some areas requiring attention. The rear seat looks to be reupholstered and is in better shape than the front but there are no visible rips or tears.
The carpet has been replaced and looks great with a very nice gold “ELDORADO” insignia. The paint is in good shape showing some signs of age and blemishes. The engine looks to be rebuilt and painted nicely with original style emblems and decals, the engine runs smooth and the air conditioning blows Ice Cold. there has been an
aftermarket Stereo installed and seems to work as it should. The aftermarket center console adds a nice convenience of storage and cup holders. These Cadillac’s in Excellent shape bring upwards of $35,000, that being said I find through extensive research and numerous websites and Dealers, this 1968 Cadillac Eldorado has a fair
market value of $15,500.
