Description

The Eldorado was a luxury offering that ran from 1952 to 2002 via 10 generations. The beautifully presented sale car is a fifth generation example powered by a V8 engine of 8.2 litres driving through a three-speed automatic transmission. Styling changes that differentiated the 1974 cars included: 5mph impact rear bumpers; horizontal tail lamps; fine mesh radiator grilles; and revised `space age' instrument panels. `SYP 183S' is finished in the striking combination of White hood over Red bodywork matched to a White interior. It was imported into the UK in 1981 and repainted in 2011 before being purchased by the vendor the following year. The braking system was refurbished in 2016 and this year included a £3,696 gearbox overhaul by Oakdene Automatic Transmissions of Nottingham. The vendor currently grades the engine and transmission as `excellent', and the bodywork, paintwork and interior trim as `very good'. The Caddy comes complete with old MOT certificates, invoices plus owner's manual and a current MOT into April 2018.
