2000 Cadillac ETC Eldorado Touring Convertible
What do a Ferrari Testarossa, a BMW 850i, a Mercedes-Benz 560SEC, a Dodge Stealth, a Jaguar XJS, a Buick Riviera, a Cadillac Eldorado, and a Lincoln Mark VIII all have in common? Each has been artfully decapitated by Coach Builders Limited, a company that turns hardtops into convertibles at its facility in High Springs, Florida.
Since 1992, the aftermarket company has built a convertible Eldorado that uses a soft boot, one of those snap-down fabric covers that hide both the top and its unsightly support structure. Now there’s a hard-boot model that conceals the top with a metal panel between the trunk and the rear seat. With the touch of a dash-mounted button, the panel rises and the top moves downward into the well, and the panel closes over it-a procedure similar to a BMW 328is’s. Covering the top mechanism completely requires that you install two little panels to cover the openings behind the rear side windows. This Eldorado is Coach Builders’ first ever hard-boot design.
Lowering the top takes about 28 seconds after two latches are released and the top button is pressed. But there are two steps that the owner must follow with the hard boot. First, make sure the trunk is closed, lest the boot collide with the trunk-lid. (Coach Builders disconnects the trunk release button on the dash to prevent accidents.) Second, when lowering the roof, the top’s latches must be closed after they clear the windshield or they may damage the fabric when the top is down.
For those who demand superior performance and unequalled style, the custom built Cadillac Eldorado Convertible is the ultimate automobile, Available in both Hard Boot and Soft Boot versions, the Eldorado Convertible is for drivers who are looking foe a car that expresses their strong sense of individuality. From its crisp styling to it cutting edge technology, the Eldorado Convertible offers a dynamic fusion oil boldness and sophistication. Because of its rarity, bold, and distinctive style, it really stands out in a crowd.
With is available 300 hp Northstar System V8 engine and StabiliTrak suspension, the most advance integrated stability control system in the world, drivers may find new ways to push the automotive envelope. Inside, elegant leather seating areas and Zebrano wood trim surround the driver in luxury. Advanced computer programs recall a host of pre-set preferences for two drivers, including seat positions, radio station preferences and outside mirror settings.
