OFFERED WITHOUT RESERVE
During the 1970s, Cadillac, along with other American car manufacturers, went through a period of transition. At the time, many people who owned a Cadillac opted to buy a convertible during the mid-1960s, but the demand for convertibles was dwindling. Cadillac's reputation for luxury remained even after the fuel crisis, as evidenced by the numerous cars that were powered by the mighty 500 cu-in V8 engine. However, in 1977, Cadillac launched a completely new model with smaller body dimensions and engine size, in an attempt to increase fuel efficiency. This meant that 1976 was the last year for full-sized luxury cars with the 500 cu-in V8 engine. Due to decreased demand and concerns about government regulations surrounding convertibles, Cadillac was the only American manufacturer to offer a convertible in 1976, dropping the convertible model for 1977. Although convertibles slowly started to be produced again during the 1980s, none of them can compare to the legendary full-sized luxury convertible that is still commonly known as the “last convertible ever.”
This car is part of the George Foreman Collection, which comprises over 50 cars from the 1930s through today, with a focus on American classics and late-model sports cars.

Please note that the vehicles in The George Foreman Collection have been in long-term static storage and will benefit from additional mechanical attention prior to being driven. Bidders are encouraged to review the Additional Documents section of each lot for any recent mechanical service rendered to help return certain vehicles to running condition. Additionally, bidders should carefully review the photos of each lot in the collection, which may highlight the oxidation of metal components certain vehicles sustained as the result of a garage fire caused by a golf cart battery in March 2019. Although none of the vehicles sustained fire damage from the fire itself, the negative cosmetic effects of the corrosive soot vary greatly from vehicle to vehicle and can be observed in the photo galleries of each lot. All lots are sold as is, where is, and bidders are responsible for any desired diligence before placing a bid.
