Cadillac Eldorado 1967 posters

Cadillac Eldorado

The 1967 Cadillac Eldorado was a major departure from its predecessor, designed to appeal to the emerging "personal luxury car" market. It featured the same E-body architecture as the second-generation Buick Riviera and Oldsmobile Toronado, coupled with Cadillac's 429 V8 engine and their Turbo-Hydramatic 425 transmission. In terms of safety, the Cadillac was enhanced with an energy absorbing steering column and a padded instrument panel. Its sharp and unique styling broke away from the conventional streamlining of the Riviera and Toronado. Additionally, it was the only production Cadillac equipped with concealed headlights behind vacuum-operated doors. Acceleration was praised, taking only nine seconds to reach 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h), and Aerobility and handling earned positive reviews from contemporary critics. In 1968, the Eldorado received the 375 hp (280 kW) (SAE gross) 472 cu in (7.7 L) V8, while disc brakes became standard. The following year saw the loss of its hidden headlamps, and a halo vinyl roof was introduced, complemented by an optional power sunroof. 1970 welcomed the introduction of the 400 hp (298 kW) and 550 lb·ft (746 N·m) SAE gross 500 cu in (8.2 L) V8 engine - exclusive to the Eldorado until the 1975 model year. The Eldorado's success was demonstrated through strong sales, with 17,930 units sold in 1967. This record was smashed in 1968 with 24,528 units sold, accounting for nearly 11% of Cadillac's overall annual sales.
