If you miss the Cadillac Eldorado, you’ll want to check out this particular one. That’s because this is a 1999 Cadillac Eldorado that’s traveled just 5,000 miles from new — meaning it’s been perfectly preserved like a new car. And now it’s for sale, so you can take home a nearly-new Eldorado to fill the void left in Cadillac’s lineup (and our hearts) since the Eldorado went away.
A little overview, here: the Cadillac Eldorado was sold from the 1950s all the way through 2002, spanning 10 distinct generations. But by the end, non-performance luxury coupes just weren’t selling — so Cadillac pulled the plug on the Eldorado after the 2002 model year. This is a good example of an Eldorado from the final generation, and it’s the “ETC” model, which had 295 horsepower compared to the standard model’s 270.
Obviously, the most interesting thing here is this Eldorado’s mileage, as it was driven just 5,000 miles in 20 years — far less than most high-dollar exotic cars that people knowingly try to drive as little as possible to preserve resale value. The ad notes “you will not find one with lower mileage,” and, indeed, that must be true — save for something at the Cadillac museum, perhaps.
This Eldorado is offered by a private seller in Ambridge, Pennsylvania, just northwest of Pittsburgh, and it’s finished in white with a light beige leather interior and the cleanest-looking Northstar V8 I’ve ever seen. It’s offered for $25,000, which is big money for an old Eldorado — but then again, this is probably the nicest one in existence.
