I must admit that in general, I am not enthralled by most cars made in the late 1970s.
However, at an auction in Buena Vista, Colorado, the beauty of this 1978 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz came through with
an exclamation point. Its large body. It's unique personality as a fun and luxurius Cadillac. And the interior.
I don't think I've ever seen such soft and cushy seats in my life!
The 1978 Cadillac Eldorado ... large, powerful and charming.
I do not know many details, but this car was being auctioned after the owner for 30+ years passed away.
It apparently was a normal everyday driving kind of car. I do not know the exact mileage when these photos were taken, but
I have some reason to believe it was over 100,000 miles.
The backside, including the long and thin tail lights.
Unique to the Biarritz version of the 1978 Eldorardo was a metal
streak that began at the front of the hood and went all the way to the door handle.
An attractive dashboard and steering wheel that was considered very modern for its time. I love it!
The front seats were worn, as seen in the left photo.
However, the back right seat was in excellent condition. I'd think not many have been passengers back there.
I pushed down on the seating and was very enthralled by the quality interior of Cadillac.
The 1978 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz has nothing to be ashamed of when compared to its contemporaries in the luxury car field.
Classy wheel covers that matched the color of the car.
Aside from being an unrestored and everyday driving car, there was one other major blemish to this Eldorado. After doing some research,
it appears a soft vinyl top went with all '78 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz models.
Upon closer look, it does seem the soft vinyl cover was taken off this car,
as the hard top looks awkward and rough, especially around the back seat passenger window.
