This El Dorado has a wonderfully interesting history.  Mrs.  Gates {Gates Tires and Jets } and her husband had a very large ranch near El Paso Texas.  Mrs. Gates had a great year and she decided to treat herself. She saw an ad in architectural digest that showed this Cadillac Roadster so she ordered one through the local Cadillac dealer.  In 1982 Cadillac did not offer a convertible so a new Eldorado Coupe was shipped to Global Coach in Orlando FL for customization.  Global Coach specialized in stretch Limos and special edition Cadillac’s called Alpine Editions.She picked the Pale Yellow and Dark Blue Metallic colors of Provence France which was one of her favorite places to spend their summers away from the heat of west Texas.The car was built by craftsmen that used General Motors components for the convertible top.  The car has its original Hartz German wool canvas top with an inner headliner.  The top was engineered to go all the way down for a flat top cover.  All the power top bows are Cadillac, latches are GM.  Look at the detailed photos for the quality of design and workmanship.The car was serviced at the Cadillac Dealership in Denver, who’s service Manager was impressed with the condition of the car and the workmanship.

The car was brought from El Paso to Denver when her husband died and the ranch was sold. The car was always driven and cared for by the houseman and always garaged with a car cover.  The mileage is correct.  Maintenance records are available at the Cadillac stores in El Paso and Denver.
