1966 Cadillac Eldorado 2 Door Convertible (LHD)
1966 saw very little change, being the final season for the rear wheel-drive Eldorado. This was a record sales year for Cadillac, its fifth in a row, and 1966 Eldorado production was exceeded only by the 1955 total. And that's as it should be, for a car with such a great heritage should end on a note of triumph.
But by now, Cadillac had decided it was again time for something truly new. It appeared the following year in the form of the first front-wheel-drive Eldorado, which would set a new standard for personal-luxury transportation. This car would only strengthen Cadillac's dominance in the upper end of the market. In first-year sales alone it exceeded its predecessor's combined total for the previous 10.
Nevertheless, this success wouldn't have been possible had it not been for the memorable Eldorado's of the Fifties and early Sixties. With the best of everything Cadillac had to offer in those years, they left an indelible impression in the minds and hearts of owners and would-be owners everywhere, and you can't ask much more than that.1966 was to be the best ever sales and production year in Cadillac history.
