RealRides of WNY - 1972 Eldorado

Unless you’re driving a black car (and what are the odds, Lol) it’s not likely that the interior color of your daily driver comes close to matching its exterior’s paint job. Back when this 1972 Cadillac Eldorado was new however, it wasn’t all that unusual to see. Still Cadillac’s only front-drive model, the Eldorado was powered by an 8.7L V8, which Cadillac boasted was “…the world’s largest production passenger car engine.” This fact was omitted as the years went on amid the OPEC-induced gas crisis. But, in 1972 Cadillac was still able to brag that the Eldorado was “…the only luxury convertible built in America.” Saw this one last summer at a weekly cruise night in the parking lot of the New York Beer Project in Lockport.
