The 1970 Cadillac Eldorado marked the end of perhaps the most storied periods in the history of GM.  The innovative designs and unrestrained power of the 60's would grind to a halt as the bloated excess of the 70's and the suffocating burdens of pollution control choked the life out of Detroit's most athletic and design-forward cars of that era. 
Behind its devilishly good looks, the 1970 Eldorado's high-compression 400 horse power engine generated a heart-stopping 550 foot pounds of torque that would catapult this 4,630 pound bad-boy-in-a-tuxedo from 0-60 in 7.8 seconds.  Having shed a few hundred pounds from its 67-69 predecessors, the 1970 Eldorado was faster than a stock Corvette off the line.  And, in spite of its huge power and weight displacement on the front-wheel drivetrain, you could smoke the tires from a dead stop and squeak them through first and second gear. Cadillac's gentlemen's rocket ship was said to "have the quiet manners of a country club gentleman with the soul of a rock star."

This car doubles down on it's clean, crisp good looks and unique lines with a special order Medium Blue leather interior (#420).  Most black cars had...
