Sales of the 1976 Cadillac Eldorado were up 110 percent over 1975, due to increased interest in the last convertibles. Cadillac built 35,184 Coupe models for 1976, which was 98.3 percent of a year earlier. But 1976 production of 14,000 Convertibles was an increase of 156 percent over the previous year! Cadillac knew the announcement of the final convertible models would generate additional attention and increased orders, and some report that had it been able to obtain additional convertible top components, Cadillac would have built and sold even more convertibles for 1976. Once Cadillac had served notice that the convertible would not be repeated for 1977, the factory was hit with orders for the actual last convertible. Cadillac had already determined that the actual last car would be retained for its own historical collection, so 200 identical "last" convertibles were built to satisfy demand. All were identical to the actual last car, and had body numbers 314-594-140499. Body number 014000 was the actual last convertible. They are detailed on our 1976 Cadillac Eldorado Bicentennial Convertible page. The 1976 convertibles were considered instant collector's items, and speculators soon drove prices sky high. Once factory production ended and dealer supply was depleted, prices jumped to two or three times the manufacturer's suggested retail price of $11,049. This is a California car with only 25,938 miles in original condition except for a new convertible top and radio. Ordered and finished in the most desirable color combination of Firethorn Metallic with white leather interior. This Beauty has held up and stood the test of time of 44 years. The car rides and drives straight down the road with no issues and demands attention wherever it goes. All of the chrome and trim are in amazing condition and shine bright as they should. The interior is in incredible condition with minimal where showing under close scrutiny. The original paint still has a great shine and the original body panel, fit & finish is fantastic.
