Today I bring you a 1967 Cadillac Eldorado that belongs to Greg Nieberding.
Greg wanted everyone to see his Classic Cadillac after we put up pics of his friend Jim’s 1967 Cadillac last week.
I am a friend of Jim’s in Mississippi whose sent you images of his 1967 Sedan de Ville. He thought you and your readers might enjoy my 1967 Eldorado. That color? Capri Aqua Metallic!
I love the way the paint jumps off the screen. This must be a real beauty to see in person. I don’t think I have seen a Cadillac in this color.
Thanks Greg for sending the pictures in.

As a kid I grew up among Cadillacs–terrific for long trips with the family. I thought a l l cars had two built-in armrests within the front and rear bench seats and four lights/ashtrays . . . until the day our neighbor drove us to school in their 1956 Chevrolet (first grade). Funny!!
On 12 July 1961 my dad surprised us when he brought home a 1961 Cadillac Sedan de Ville Short Deck (to fit into our short garage)–I believe that 215″-long model was also called the Park Avenue or Town Sedan (but did not appear on the car during that model year) depending on its model line, Series 62 or de Ville. This replaced our 1957 model, our very first four-door hardtop model which my older sister loved to drive. This 1961 is the car I learned to drive and eventually took to college. Loved how far the doors would open to move furniture, etc. People were impressed how easy and accurate is was to park, especially in tight spaces. The tips of the fins, when viewed from the driver’s seat, would indicate where the rear bumper was–never any guess work. I impressed even the Pennsylvania State Police Officer whom I squired during the driven section of my driver’s exam–passed the first time, too!
Question for you all: is Model Year 1961 the only model year in which the name “Cadillac” did n o t appear on the outside of the car? It didn’t appear on the grille, hood, fenders, doors, nor trunk (deck) lid. “CADILLAC” appeared in upper-case block letters on the instrument panel along with the coat of arms/crest on the deck and hood, but no actual name appeared outside that I can remember nor locate. Guess that car was so distinctive in its day that a label/badge was unnecessary. The “Cadillac” name did appear in Model Years 1960 and 1962, but it appears that Model Year 1961 was skipped. This could be a good trivia question for those of you are inclined . . . .
Would somebody please verify if this is the only Model Year without the name appearing on the outside?

Thats a very nice coloured Eldorado, white top with Aqua bleue exteripor body paint.
I think this Eldorado would look super painted on a T-Shirt, see the Black ’67 Eldorado in the Automotive Art Forums, I am sure Greggs car would look superb and drawn, hand painte on anAshe Grey T-shirt.
