Wheels in the Grass

This 1973 Cadillac Eldorado coupe can be seen sitting just off the main drag in Arcade, N.Y. Totally restyled that year, the Eldo was available as both a coupe ($7,360) and a convertible ($7,681). What was neat about this particular example, aside from its relatively good condition, was the fact that it’s the exact color combination of the car featured in that year’s brochure! Sort of a bronze with the white vinyl top. Some highlights from the ’73: new eggcrate grille; thick padded vinyl top with coach windows; rear fender skirts; 500 cu. in V-8 powering the front wheels. This one’s been parked here for a while, but it looks good enough to go!
