Cadillac : Eldorado Bicentennial Edition 1 of 200 produced for sale

Current customer rating: current rating for this car(2.25) based on 312 votes

I am a private collector in Las Vegas.  I do not buy and sell cars.  As a matter of fact. I have not offered or sold any cars from my collection. For the first time I will be offering several cars for sale. As you will see my cars are generally low mile original collectable cars or totally restored collectible cars.  I need to make some room in my climate controlled warehouse. I am literally out of room. I am offering this car on a no reserve auction for an immediate sale.  

Thus. the listing for this last production of the Cadillac Eldorado Limited Edition Bicentennial Edition.


There were 200 of these cars made with special exclusive appointments in 1976 for the last production run.  If you don't know about this last production run or this car. just Google "1976 Cadillac Bicentennial" and you're see a lot of information.  This is car #139 of 200. with the 200th car being in the GM Sterling Heights. MI museum.


There is a  plaque on the dash which indicates it's a Bicentennial. as well as the VIN and appointments which were exclusive to the Bicentennial. such as the white leather seats with red Firethorn pinstriping. white hubcaps. red and blue pin stripping etc.


There is a Bicentennial Registry which lists the cars and their owners that you can find on the web.  Jay Leno was listed recently as one of the owners. but they changed this owner to annonymous recently. although he still owns one.  Another is owned by the Saudi Royal Family. an other major collectors of the world.


One of these Bicentennials sold in 2012 on Ebay for the winning bid of $83. 00.  The car had only 1400 miles on it.  My car has 43. 00 miles on it and I'm no where near an $83. 00 price.  This car's beautiful condition would be perfect for a Cadillac Dealer's Showroom.  It even has the factory window sticker that show it's the Bicentennial Edition.


I am a EXTREMELY ANAL detail orientated collector. a perfectionist of sorts and I'm very particular about the condition and originality of the cars I own.  THIS CAR IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.   This car has been driven less than 1. 00 miles in the last 10 years. nbsp;less than 150 miles a year. exclusively to car shows.  I had stand up placards made of poster board for the shows that explain what a Bicentennial is.

 This care is mostly original. there was some minor work done to make the car a great car. There is a new. best you can buy. pinpoint vinyl convertible top installed with glass heated rear window. exactly what the car came with from the factory.  The top has never seen rain. well. neither has the car since I've owned it.  It's has always been stored inside and covered.  All replaceables in the engine bay have been replaced. including valve cover gaskets. hoses. belts. full tune up. carb gaskets. and much more.  If it was replaceable I had it replaced.  The exhaust is like new with catalitic converter.  Everything works with the exeption of the clock.  The automatic trunk lock. cruise. AM/FM/8 track. power antenna is sometimes slow. all gauges and lighting work perfectly.  The carpeted front seat backs are faded a little. and I had a perfectly matching dash pad put on as you can see in the pictures. The transmission shifts fine. the battery is new. etc.  I can go on and on and on about this. the car needs nothing.  There are a couple rock chips near the front headlights and the right rear hubcap has a couple chips in it. There are 2 extremely small dipples in the hood on the RH side near the windshield that are almost un-noticable. The front door windlace (round cloth covered weatherstrip at body) is freyed at top and could inexpensively be replaced if you wish to do so. For me it's fine like it is.  The car has the factory parade boots which are not cracked.  I had custom made boot covers made for them. but the original boot cover is also there.  The trunk has the original spare. flat fixer bottle and jack.  The car has the (new) one piece front Firethorn Red carpet mat. but I also bought regular Firethorn Cadillac mats to put on top of it so when you drive to a car show you can take them out and put them in the trunk.  This keeps the new original once piece mat like new.  The trim and stainless is in fantastic condition as the pictures show.  The top goes up and down just fine and does not bind.  I replaced the LH convertible top body weather stripping last year because it was becoming pretty brittle. as well as the trunk weatherstrip.  The hood and trunk Cadillac emblems are like new.  The upholstery is in great condition with no rips or tears. although the front door panels and one spot on driver's seat show a little wear as you can see in the pictures.  The tinted glass is all perfect all the way around with no chips or cracks or windshield wiper streaks.  And of course. it rides like a Cadillac.  It's a really nice driving car.  The tires are brand new with correct whitewall width. I purchased these from Coker Tire when I first got the car and they have about 900 miles on them.  Brakes and CV joints are like new.  I think I had the CV joints replaced?  The A/C was converted and works fine but needs to be charged.


I welcome any questions or inspection of this car. inspections by appointment of course.  I'm being VERY honest about this car in my description and am not out to decieve anyone.   I really like this car and the condition it is in. not to mention the rareity of it.   I'm selling this car with no warranty as is.


CADILLAC COLLECTORS AND ENTHUSISTSwill know what a Bicentennial Edtion is. but if you don't here's some information.

All Bicentennials start out loaded with all available equipment including the hard parade boot. The only exception to this will be if your car was produced for the California market. then it will include the VJ9 California Emission Equipment & Testing option at a cost of $50. 00.  

All are the exact same color. #11 Cotillion White body color. White Leather Interior with red piping. Dark Firethorn Carpet with red dash and seat belts. All have a white convertible top. The pin stripping. #3 Blue and #8 Red is unique to this model only.  

Blue and Red are both on the hood but only the Red extends down both doors. Another unique item is the Wheel Cover Centers. they are painted Cotillion White to match the body where as all other Eldorados came with #19 Sable Black Centers.  

Another very important item that lets you know you have the "real deal" is a small gold engraved plaque on the dash just above the glove box door. It states “This 1976 Cadillac Fleetwood Eldorado is one of the last 200 identical U. S. production convertibles" 

To locate your Body Number Tag and number. check under the hood below the windshield on the passenger side close to the firewall.  

 It is a black metal tag with the top line reading BODY BY FISHER. The end of the second line is where you find your Body Number. If you have a TRUE Bicentennial Eldorado your number will be between and including numbers 013801 thru 013999. There are only 199 of these cars out there. That is it!  #14000 was the last one made and is held by GM making it #200.  

This is the only way to know for sure if you have a true '1976 Cadillac Fleetwood Bicentennial Eldorado'. Hopefully this helps explain what to look for when on the hunt for this truly Rare and “Last of the Breed” BIG Eldorados.

There is a mistake in the description above. The description says that this is a no reserve auction. That is a typo on my behalf.  I can't change it per Ebay rules.  Please know that there is a reserve for this auction. It is a low reserve for such a rare car.
