  1. That looks to be the one out of San Francisco that was written up in the Cadillac LaSalle Club magazine several years ago.
  2. it looks like Sausalito Green Firemist, and is a great color combination
  3. I own a '68 and that is not correct upholstery. The choices were leather and two cloth & vinyl patterns, but that isn't one of them. The valve covers are an incorrect shade of blue, closer to what was used on the '77-'78 425 engine. The exterior does look nice.
  4. John, One member is attempting to 3D print the trim pieces, but he is in the early stages of that. I don't recall if he is the same person who has been experimenting with 3D filler pieces for his '74 Eldorado convertible (Mitchell Radford). The discussion is quite lengthy: http://forums.cadillaclasalleclub.org/index.php?topic=159641.0 I am seriously considering selling my '77 Eldorado Biarritz with only 20,000 miles because of this filler and trim issue. Some have suggested buying the generic door edge guard material that comes in a roll at O'Reilly's and other mass market auto part stores.
  5. "Drive train was removed when I got it, but will go with body"
  6. I'm a member of the Cadillac LaSalle Club and the poor fit of the replacement fillers and lack of suitable "chrome" plastic trim for those pieces has been discussed many times. The trim should have been stainless steel, but Cadillac was too cheap to use it. I would suggest finding a shop that specializes in stainless steel fabrication.
  7. So tell us the story, and are there any photos of it?
  8. You would think for that price that someone could spend a couple of hours cleaning the upholstery and tires.
  9. As Ed suggested, contact McPherson College in Kansas. If you donate it to them, your Mom could get a tax deduction and the car will get saved.
  10. Black on black is actually boring on this car, and I've seen a couple in person. Mine is a somewhat dark blue with white top and white leather. I would prefer it didn't have the vinyl top, but it doesn't look bad with it, either.
  11. That Hupmobile is real sharp and a keeper. i would take that over the Chevelle, and I grew up in the muscle car era. As for the Cadillac, you might stand a better chance of someone saving it if it's advertised on the Cadillac LaSalle Message Forum: http://forums.cadillaclasalleclub.org/
  12. There was a lot of criticism in the states since Pontiac usually outsold Buick here. GM determined there was more sales potential in China than here, so correctly chose to keep Buick.
