Beginning in 1979, the Eighth Generation of Cadillac Eldorado was introduced and carried through the 1985 model year. It was a smaller, slimmer vehicle with several drivetrain variants used along the way in an effort to meet stricter Federal emission and fuel economy requirements from year to year. To help maintain interior and trunk space, Cadillac also introduced an independent rear suspension system. They shared the same E-body chassis platform as the Buick Riviera and Oldsmobile Toronado with front-wheel-drive. Bearing the name Biarritz meant a Cadillac was equipped with the top tier package that included a brushed stainless-steel roof that covered the front passenger compartment with the rear half being covered with a padded landau vinyl top. The interior showcases "pillowed" style velour or leather seating with contrasting piping, along with many other options.
We are very pleased to offer this 1983 Cadillac Eldorado Coupe Biarritz finished in Cadillac Sand Gray with a very comfortable Dark Carmine leather interior. Under the hood is a 4.1 Liter V8 digital fuel injected engine that produces 135 horsepower and 200 lbs.-ft of torque and is mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission with electric overdrive. This Eldorado Biarritz features the special stainless-steel and padded landau top, pinstripe, Cadillac embroidered leather interior, self-leveling air suspension, electronic climate control air conditioning system, power windows & door locks, cruise control, AM/FM cassette player with power antenna, power trunk release with power pull down, tilt/ telescopic steering wheel, digital dash information centers, digital fuel economy read out, power adjustable front seating, remote adjustable driver & passenger side mirrors, and rare 15" 24-slot aluminum alloy wheels wrapped in brand new Ironman tires measuring 215/75R15 just installed in September 2023.
Having sold new to its first North Carolina owner in August 1983 from Coral Cadillac of Pompano, Beach, Florida, it would trade hands only one time in July 1985 with 16,052 miles on the odometer to a residence of Deerfield Beach, FL. Today, it shows only 40,170 miles! It has remained garage-kept and exceptionally well cared for by this former owner/collector for the past 39 years. It was moved from Florida to Missouri in 1991 and parked in a climate-controlled collection when not in use, adding miles to the odometer on the fairest weather days. Since its arrival at our museum, we have continued to care for this beautiful Eldorado in preparation for sale with new whitewall tires, alternator, muffler, drive belts, lower ball joint, transmission bushing, shift shaft bushing, antenna cable, submersible fuel line, fuel filter, air filter, engine oil change with filter, and the air conditioning was retrofitted to accept R134a refrigerant. This Cadillac comes with an extra set of keys, all factory owner's manuals, original spare tire & tools, and a clean CarFax report.
