Evolve Motors & Chicago Car Club are pleased to present this 1974 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible
This '74 Eldo has covered just 25,480 miles over the course of its 44 year life. As expected from such a low mileage car, it is in absolutely tremendous condition. This car has been owned by a friend of ours, the second owner, here in Chicago for twenty years, and stored in a heated garage right in the heart of downtown Chicago. It has been serviced and detailed here at our shop, Albany Auto, for quite a few years now. The car has actually been in the Chicago area since new, having been delivered new to Park Ridge, IL. No worries though, this car has always been garaged and the condition of the undercarriage is extremely impressive. Having picked the car up on a sunny day and driven it for the first time through downtown and along Lake Shore Drive, the first time behind the wheel of this car was a memorable one. I've driven many, many interesting cars from all different corners of the automotive universe and nothing, and I mean nothing, garners attention, smiles, and photos quite like a bright yellow and white drop-top Eldorado. With the top down and a good polishing, this car is nothing short of a spotlight on wheels
Considering the time-capsule-like state of the unrestored interior and the rust-free undercarriage, it's clear that this car has been extremely well-taken-care-of throughout those 44 years. We've been having an absolute blast with the car and have been driving it routinely. There's really nothing to knock on this car; it runs and drives phenomenally well, the mint-condition interior is as comfortable as could be, and the car looks fantastic from every angle
First off, paint. The car was repainted in the correct Apollo Yellow here at our shop, Albany Auto Chicago, ten years ago. Paint was done to an extremely high standard; Albany Auto is Chicago's #1 body shop according to Yelp, and does absolutely tremendous paintwork. Although paint was done ten years ago, it truly looks as though it was painted yesterday. There is not a single chip on this car and we mean it. Not at the lowest corners of the skirts, not on the under “lip” of the hood, not a single chip, scratch, or blemish. You could pick this car up and drive it straight to a show. Chrome is equally as mint, and really makes this car a head-turner. Chrome is mirror-like everywhere – bumpers, trim, logos, etc. White convertible top is in excellent shape, with no stains, tears, or discoloring. The body is also in excellent shape, with no dings whatsoever. All doors and body panels open and close with ease. Glass and light lenses are all clear and crack-free throughout. Wheels are excellent, with no damage or curb rash. Tires are American Classic whitewalls, with the DOT number indicating they're from 2014. Tread depth is 11/32” at all four corners, which is extremely close to new, as new tires tend to be 12/32
Much like the rest of the car, the interior is time-capsule-quality. White Sierra Grain leather is excellent throughout and the quality of the interior materials is very evident. Seats are in great shape, with no cracks, tears, burst seams, or scuffs. Door panels are excellent, with no kicked-open markings, no armrest discoloration, and no signs of wear really. There is absolutely no fading or damage throughout the interior. Wooden dash panels with engraved designs show as-new, as does the bla
