This 1976 Cadillac Eldorado convertible is currently part of Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker’s collection and has been used for occasional drives and to attend weekend shows for the past 13 years. It is finished in white over a red leather interior and powered by a 500ci V8 driving the front wheels through a 3-speed automatic transmission. Modifications include an unconnected aftermarket stereo system and an Optima battery. Just under 10k miles are indicated on the odometer, and the car is now being offered with a clean California title in the name of Mr. Barker’s father.
General Motors marketed 1976 as the final model year for the drop-top Eldorado due to uncertainty over the future of convertibles in the US, and the model was not offered again until 1984. This example features white paint with red pinstriping to match the interior, and its white soft top is shown both lowered and raised in photos.
Paint chips are noted on both the driver and passenger doors, with detailed photos of the imperfections shown in the gallery below. Steel wheels wear black and polished Cadillac covers and are mounted with a set of gold-striped whitewall tires.
The interior is trimmed in bright red leather with wood veneers on the steering wheel, dash, and doors. A modern Alpine stereo is mounted in the glovebox and a powered subwoofer has been built into the trunk, though the seller notes that the new sound system is not yet connected. The factory radio remains mounted in the dash. The odometer currently shows just over 9,700 miles, with true mileage unknown.
The 500ci V8 is mounted longitudinally and drives the front wheels through a 3-speed automatic transmission. The V8 was rated at 234 horsepower for 1976, enough to propel the 5,200-pound car to 60 mph in less than 10 seconds. The seller states that the car has been maintained in-house over the past thirteen years, and that it passed a California emissions test in April 2018.
