Quoting Automotive Mileposts:
The 1969 Cadillac Fleetwood Eldorado was refined in styling for 1969. Perhaps Cadillac felt that the 1967 and 1968 models were just a bit too sporty looking for its conservative clientele. The retractable headlamp covers were replaced by fixed dual headlamps for 1969. The grille was now finely textured. loosing the larger texture previously featured. This gave the Eldorado a frontal appearance that was more in keeping with the other Cadillac models. The racy slotted wheel covers were also toned down. a more elegant appearance accomplished by eliminating the slots. and giving them a simpler design. This wheel cover would be the sole offering on Eldorado automobiles through 1971.
At the back. the dual backup lights. previously housed in the bumper on either side of the license plate. were replaced by two red reflectors. A new single backup light moved up to the fuel filler door. providing improved illumination.
Inside. a new instrument panel was introduced for 1969 (left). which placed all controls near the driver. At its center. the instrument panel jutted out towards the passenger compartment. its padded surface providing improved protection to front seat passengers in the event of a mishap. A new steering wheel allowed the driver to sound the horn by squeezing the inner side of any part of the wheel. A new theft-deterrent ignition. steering and transmission lock made it more difficult to "borrow" someone else's car. and moved the ignition key to the steering column.
The windshield wiper and washer controls were mounted on the driver's door panel. which appeared to be a part of the instrument panel with the door closed. Controls for cruise control. rear defogger. seat heater. headlights. and Climate Control were to the left of the steering column. and the clock and radio were to the right. Directly in front of the driver. was the speedometer. below which warning lights were placed. A very tidy and functional design that took a bit of getting used to. since everything was condensed into a rather tight space.
The Eldorado was GM's first personal luxury car to abandon the retractable headlamp covers. Apparently the Eldorado started a trend. since the Toronado. Riviera. and Thunderbird all ditched the concealed headlamp feature for 1970. Cadillac introduced its "halo" vinyl roof in 1969. and the Eldo looked especially fetching with the color-keyed rear window trim. and the color break around the edge of the vinyl roof moldings. This was especially apparent when contrasting body and vinyl roof colors were combined.
Cadillac mentioned Eldorado's "quiet. soft-riding" personality in sales literature. and emphasized that the Eldo was the only car in the world to combine. as standard equipment. front-wheel drive. variable-ratio power steering. and Automatic Level Control.
The Fleetwood Eldorado for 1969 was billed by Cadillac as "the world's finest personal luxury car. " The 1969 Eldorado was—and is—a unique combination of beauty. performance. and handling qualities. Indeed. the world's finest personal luxury car.
