    Google - Edmunds, other original car brochure/specs sites ???

    I believe that most fabric roofing was a dealer (aftermarket installer) option.

    THe 91 eldorado touring coupe came In black, Polo green, White, Grey ( I think), and red. maybe one more color I don't remember. the interior was "beachwood" a tan color. the seats were a different style with side blusters, the DIC and Speedo display were wood trimmed, the exhaust had a different sound and different rectangle tips and the taillights (91 only) were 2 different colors ( amber on top red on the bottom I think). That should cover most of the differences.. they are nice cars !

    There was a factory carriage roof option for those years but there are probably just as many cars out there or more that have aftermarket ones.

    The Formal Cabriolet Roof (the "half-roof") came standard on the 1991 Eldorado Biarritz, and a Full Cabriolet Roof (option code CF8) was an option on the base Eldorado. No ETC came with a padded roof of either type.

    From a drivability point of view, the 91 ETC has a tighter handling and suspension package, quicker steering than the standard version, and a higher final drive ratio of 3.33:1. The driver's outside rear-view mirror is blue-tinted to reduce glare, and the moulding around the front and rear windows is black rather than chrome. The ETC also had body-colored door handles, wider side rocker panels, and an additional side marker lamp behind each rear wheel well. The wood trim, however, is identical to the base model. The sixth color was Black Sapphire Metallic, a dark blue. These cars look terrific in either Sable Black or Crimson (mine), IMHO.

    Where you located? Several nice ones on craiglist all over.

    FYI the subframe mounts are different too; stiffer.

    If not factory..Must be aftermarket?

    ----------

    This particular car that i posted a photo of above..... i am looking at .......has the Half roof. It also appears to have every other feature of an ETC ... or someone went to some effort to make it look like one as it does also have everything cosmetically including in the interior, the side bolster upgraded seats the TC`s have. Only thing i can spot by eye that is different is the trunk badge. It does not have the same badge as most TC`s i have seen (which i think reads "Cadillac Touring Coupe" or Cadillac Motor Company"), But more of a standard type of Cadillac crest

    Here is the rear look at this car. Has the TC exhaust tips and skirting and amber topped tailights....But does not have the TC specific badge and also has Eldorado script badge and " 4.9 port fuel injection" badge to the right on trunk lid that all other TC`s do not have. These could have been added?? Also a front pic of this car shows a standard Cadillac laurel hood ornament which TC`s do not have either. Could someone have added all the TC cosmetics (wheels, body panels, seats) to a standard eldo or is this a one off from factory with the half roof and all? Hope a few experts can chime in!!

    It is odd that it has the standard badging, but I doubt anyone went through the trouble of swapping all the other ETC parts into a base. A vin check would tell you what it is.

    That's an after market roof. The original (on a base) would have been a 1/4 roof, not going beyond the rear side windows, and would have no opera lights.

    Yes it is odd...and i thought the same thing with the other parts ..Its a lot of trouble to track down TC parts to swap to a base Eldo. Thanks for the info on the Half roof!. I actually like the half roof even though its not "sporty" I just want to make sure i am buying an ETC . I have the VIN on it...You or anyone know how i can decipher it to ID if it is or is not an ETC?

    I am speculating the 6th digit in VIN tells body style. Anyone else here who has a 91 ETC know which digit in VIN would ID the car as an ETC and/or could share the 6th digit (or correct one) so can compare to this one?
