History

The 1967 Cadillac Eldorado was probably Cadillac's most significant addition in the 1960s. The front wheel drive hardtop (no convertible was available) was based on the new Oldsmobile Toronado that made its first appearance in 1966. The concept actually originated with the XP-727 program of 1959, with the notion of front-wheel drive coming to the fore 3 years later in 1962. Management originally considered calling the car LaSalle, after the junior Cadillac of the prewar years, but settled on the current model name of Eldorado.
