1965 Experimental Cadillac Eldorado


Recommended Posts

Close inspection shows this isn’t an ordinary 1965 Cadillac Fleetwood Eldorado convertible. Note the flush-fitting convertible top lid in the down position, wire wheels and 1966-style cornering lamps, all features not found on production 1965 Eldorados.

The restrained elegance of the slab-sided Lincolns was a styling sensation and carried Lincoln production through significant production gains throughout the 1960s.

As a result of Lincoln’s styling challenge, Cadillac released a clean, slab-sided car of its own in 1965 that elegantly retained traditional Cadillac features. Yet, through the redesigned 1965 and similar-appearing 1966 models, Cadillac convertible coupes retained a bulky folded convertible top when the top was in the lowered position. The 1961-and-later Lincoln Continental convertible sedans, however, featured a folded convertible top hidden under a cover flush with the sheet metal around it. In 1965, General Motors worked to match Lincoln’s appealing flush top-cover styling element on a special Eldorado.
