Perhaps it's my frustration of not finding what I originally thought I wanted or perhaps I'm becoming less finicky and more open-minded. Whatever, the reason, I find myself being attracted to this '66 Eldorado.
Yeah, its not my usual 1962, 1963 or 1964. But you know what? I've come to the realization of rather than limiting myself to a few specific models and years, I should concentrate on finding the absolute very best car I can find at the highest price I can afford (which admittedly isn't much - can you say cheese line?). And, since I've always like Cadillacs, I find myself attracted to this car.
Anyway, I never really paid too much attention to Cadillacs after 1964. But, I'm really starting to warm up to the '65-'66 body style - especially in Eldorado form which has the classy looking wood interior trim (which I'm a real sucker for).
So now, let's talk values. CPI shows a '66 Eldorado convertible in good condition to be $11,400 and one in excellent condition to be $18,800. Based on this guy's description and $21,000 asking price, he obviously thinks he has one of the best '66 Eldorado's in captivity. However, I don't think this is the case based on the amount of work he's had done to it.
I'm hoping our congenial host will weigh in heavily as to what this car can be (or should be) bought for.
By the way, there's a red '66 Eldorado convertible on Hemmings.com reportedly with only 30,500 original miles with an even higher asking price of $28,000. At that altitude, an air mask should automatically drop down from the visor!
As always, I'm looking up to guys to give me some much needed guidance on this blue '66 Eldorado.
Gentlemen, the floor is yours.
On Dec. 21st, an ebay auction ended on this '64 DeVille convertible with a high bid of $4,050 (didn't meet the reserve) and 11 different bidders (14 total bids received).
It's interesting that on this go around and with still over 6 days left, the bidding is already up to $3,750 with 9 different bidders (14 total bids received).
A month or so ago, I would've been more interested in this car. But, more recently, I've been looking at '65-'65 Buick Electra convertibles which make the '63-'64 Cadillacs seem somewhat frumpy to my eye - though I'm sure I'd be happy with a Cadillac.
