Custom Eldorado Description

The Custom Eldorado was a Hot Wheels casting designed by Harry Bradley based on the the 1967 Cadillac Eldorado. The Custom Eldorado debuted in the 1968 Line-up as part of the Original 16 castings and came with a Collector's Button. All cars came with a button 'til 1972.

This tool & die was only used in the 1968 and 1969 line-up and wasn't used in any later years. Every version of this car had a die-cast body, die-cast chassis, redline wheels, bent-axle suspension, and Spectraflame paint.

Was issued out of the USA and Hong Kong.

Generally found with white interior, but there is dark too.

All have painted black roof.
