Eldorado Cadillac History 1975

Eldorado Cadillac Models & History 1975

he Fleetwood Eldorado lost its rear fender skirts this season and saw a major facelift, as well. Square headlamps were new. Wrap-around cornering lamps were gone, being replaced by a narrow, rectangular type, housed in the front fender tips. The parking lamps and directionals were placed in the bumper ends. Larger rear quarter windows appeared on the coupe and a new cross hatch grille was used on both styles. The rear fender wells were enlarged, causing the horizontal belt molding to end just ahead of the wheel openings. On the coupes, Fleetwood ornaments decorated the roof “C” pillar. Front-wheel-drive technology was retained.
