Cadillac 1961-1990

A market laden with faded examples of GM’s premier brand offers opportunity for buyers prepared to spend some money on maintenance and be patient. Among the most common and affordable are 1970s-80s coupes and sedans but it’s wise to avoid diesels and ‘variable displacement’ V8s.

If you fancy yourself as Boss Hogg from the Dukes of Hazzard TV series then a big, front-wheel drive Eldorado convertible costs $30-35,000 with the coupe somewhat cheaper.

A sudden urge for efficiency gripped US car designers in the late-1970s, resulting in compact models like the 1977 Eldorado Biarritz coupe.

These with a 5.7-litre V8 still go well and are packed with prestigious goodies, all for around $20,000.
