Hello Folks

Here's my "new" Eldorado Biarritz from 1978.
Virtually perfect. Only lightly discolored fender extensions.
Interior is as perfect as a new car. Just needs shocks & possibly
a muffler/resonator. The Climate Control was just repaired with a NEW
Delco ATC programmer! nice and toasty in cold Illinois!

Look forward to participating here in the forum

Is it #96 "Western Saddle Firemist"? It's beautiful.

and I wish my '73 had such a fancy interior.

HI Guys

The color is paint code 69 "Ruidoso Saddle".
It is a cinnamon kind of shade ... I believe they call the interior color just "Saddle".
This was the color combo I was hoping to settle on .... Took a while to find the right car, but in the end
it was only 140 miles away! I have all the original dealer paperwork, contract, etc as well as the original
window sticker for the car. Oddly, they do not call out the color on the sticker.

Now I have to find out the paint code for the stripe. I am planning on securing all the fender extension
pieces and have the paint matched perfectly (incl. the paint stripe/pinstripe); But I'm NOT going to replace them until they deteriorate.
Just want to be ready when they go. It's only original once as they say!
