    New Acquisition-78 Eldorado Biarritz-22,500 miles

    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.

    Re: New Acquisition-78 Eldorado Biarritz-22,500 miles

    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!

    mike
