On October 6, 1966, the revolutionary front-drive Eldorado hit dealer showrooms, the product of GM design studies beginning with the 1962 XP-727. Featuring breathtaking razor-edged, formal coupe styling with a long hood and short deck, the original 1967-69 Eldorado remains a design benchmark today. Equipped with an innovative front-drive powertrain, the Eldorado delivered excellent roadholding and outstanding performance with Cadillac's proprietary V-8 engine, upsized from 429 cubes for 1967 to 472 cubic inches for 1968-69 with 375 horsepower, followed by another bump to 500 cubes and 400 horsepower for 1970s. Variable-ratio power steering and automatic rear level control heightened the Eldorado's premium, GT-style experience. Eldorado fit and finish was outstanding, interiors plush, and a veritable multitude of color combinations was available. An instant hit, the new front-drive Eldorado enjoyed high demand with eager buyers accepting long wait times and snapping up 17,930 examples in 1967, followed by 24,528 for 1968, 23,333 for 1969, and 28,842 for 1970.
Offered in spectacular, very well-maintained original condition, this 1969 Cadillac Fleetwood Eldorado clearly benefits from single ownership and care from new until just recently. Under 47,200 original miles are accumulated from new. The 472 CI Cadillac V-8 engine sends its 375 factory-rated horsepower output to the road via a 3-speed Turbo-Hydramatic 400 automatic transmission and Cadillac's innovative front-wheel drive system. As expected, standard amenities and factory options are numerous, including power brakes (disc front), power steering, air conditioning, the original AM radio, power door locks, power windows, tilt steering, a driver's side remote mirror, and a wide array of internal and external lights. Refinished in its Body Tag-correct Code 46 Cordovan (Brown) Metallic paint approximately 10 years ago, the Eldorado's unforgettable body style is enhanced by a new-for-1969 Code M Light Flax "halo" style vinyl roof covering. The original Code 446 Cordovan interior is in excellent as-new condition, trimmed in Dubonnet Cloth and vinyl upholstery and includes a generous two-way power front bench seat with central armrest. The trunk compartment includes a spare wheel/tire and roadside jack.
Freshly detailed and serviced, this exceptionally original 1969 Cadillac Fleetwood Eldorado represents the landmark first series for Cadillac's first front-drive model and one of the first such cars produced in America since the Cord 810/812 of the mid-1930s. Offered in outstanding condition throughout, this 1969 Cadillac Fleetwood Eldorado is accompanied by a copy of the original Idaho title document, issued March 11, 1969, plus the original owner's manual and Protect-O-Plate.
