The 1967-1970 Cadillac Fleetwood Eldorado was one of the more interesting cars of the late '60s. Essentially Cadillac's heavily re-engineered version of Oldsmobile's front-wheel-drive Toronado, it was an exceptional road machine considering its size, with outstanding handling and surprising get-up-and-go.

The 1967-1970 Cadillac Fleetwood Eldorado had a finely honed body styling in the Cadillac idiom, though it was somewhat less radical and aggressive than the Toronado's. Growing collector interest in all front-wheel-drive Eldorados means that "collectibility" doesn't end with the 1970 models, though the boom demand for 1976's "last convertible" petered out several years ago. The first-generation cars (coupes only) are still the best investment and the most satisfying to drive.
