219 actual miles! In a sealed container 40 years.

219 actual miles!! This is an amazing time capsule, literally! It was stored in a sealed container from 1978- 2018. Cadillac announced this would be the last of the big Eldos. They offered this Custom Biarritz Classic as a last hurrah. A gentleman from Detroit thought this could be a great investment opportunity. He prepped it for long term hibernation by draining the fuel and oiling the rubber. It was then tucked away in a dry container not to see daylight for 40 years. No moisture or mice damage. The window sticker is still glued to the window. We have original license plate, finance contract, registration card

EXTERIOR: Incredibly well preserved, original survivor with no damage or rust. No door dings. The paint is the original two tone combination with factory pinstriping. Other than very minor imperfections it still looks new, amazing considering it's age. All the chrome and trim on the car is shiny and straight. The padded vinyl top is still excellent. The hubcaps weren't even on the car, they were kept wrapped separately. They are like brand new. The tires were just replaced. The rubber weather strips are still pristine. Glass is crystal clear.

INTERIOR: Amazing all original condition. And oh my God, you want to talk about luxury and comfort. I want this seat in my house. Pillow top leather cushions. It is a split bench seat with power on both sides and power reclining on the passenger side. I'm looking at a dashboard that is absolutely like brand new immaculate condition. The chrome sparkles, the clock is still working. It features a leather wrapped, tilt-telescopic steering wheel. There's no splits or cracks in the armrests or dash pad. Headliners, seat belts, carpet, floormats are pristine. It still has the original plastic steering wheel wrapper and plastic seat covers.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The motor compartment looks new. Very well preserved and it has been carefully detailed. All the components are still original. The air cleaner assembly has the ductwork and heat riser tube, original hose clamps, smog equipment is complete. It has the pump for automatic ride leveler. Runs as smooth as a mouse in slippers.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It has power trunk release and automatic pull down, both work. Of course the jack and spare have never been out. The carpet liner still looks new. Has original air bottle to fill the spare. It has the optional rubber mat over the carpet liner.

UNDERSIDE: It was incredibly well preserved and documented on video as 100% original. It has recently been detailed being very mindful of keeping it's original integrity. It is front wheel drive. The front end components are immaculate. The body bushings, fuel and brake lines, exhaust look excellent. The floors are amazingly clean, still showing factory primer. It has auto leveling system.

A true time capsule. Where will you ever get an opportunity like this again? Not only likely the lowest mile 78 Caddy in existence but also has a great story. How many cars were sealed up for 40 years! They dont make anything like this anymore.

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
