Eldorado
Vehicle Model

A luxury car produced by Cadillac.

A 1974 Eldorado convertible (red body, white interior) was used as the main vehicle in the 2004 road trip film Route 66:  An American (bad)Dream.

On April 21, 1976 the last Eldorado convertible for generations of Eldorados was produced.  The final 200 convertibles were a special "BiCentennial Cadillac" edition, white cars with white tops, white wheel covers and white leather upholstery and red and blue trim.  The convertible would return, however, in model year 1984.

Awards and acknowledgements include:
1973 Indianapolis 500 Pace Car
A Complete Guide to Used Cars (1995 Edition) Best Late-Model Bet in the Luxury Car category (model years 1988-1994)
