The brochure called the 1972 Cadillac Eldorado the world’s most elegant personal car. What made it so? For starters (again, from the brochure)things like a massive new grille, the fact that it was the only luxury car to come standard with both front-wheel-drive and an 8.2-litre V-8 engine (the world’s largest production engine, Cadillac reminded us), and something called lamp monitors. One thing which many of us wouldn’t mind seeing come back, are the myriad color choices, both inside and out. You never see names like Balmoral Green, Palomino Firemist, or St. Moritz Blue anymore. And the Eldo’s optional leather interior surfaces/carpet set was available in twelve different color combinations! Saw this nicely kept example, painted in Willow with a Covert Green vinyl top, a short time ago in Pendleton.
