The Cadillac Eldorado is a personal luxury car that was manufactured and marketed by Cadillac from 1953 to 2002 over ten generations. The 1967 Cadillac Eldorado is a milestone Cadillac by any standard. The knife-edged, ultra-contemporary shape was an attention-getter in 1967 – and it influences Cadillac design to this day. Although the chassis and underbody structure borrowed heavily from Oldsmobile’s year-old Toronado, the style was totally unique. Performance was 0–60 mph (0–96 km/h) in less than nine seconds and a top speed of 120 mph (192 km/h). The engine was a Cadillac, 429 c.i.d./340 h.p. V-8. Variable ratio power steering and front disc brakes gave the driver better feel through the wheel and more stopping power. Automatic level control capped an already unconventional suspension.
