1973 Cadillac Eldorado Indy Pace Car

Gateway Classic Cars of Dallas is excited to bring to market a very nice 1973 Cadillac Eldorado Indy Pace Car Convertible!

Only 566 were built-in 1973. They were all painted Cotillion White, with red interior, Power Convertible Top comes with a die-cast convertible, Authenticity manual, Service records, and Framed poster. 1973 was the 5th year that Cadillac was chosen as a pace car throughout the years. And this was the second time ever that a front-wheel-drive car was leading the pack of race cars down the start lap, the first front-wheel-drive pace car was a Cord sometime in the '30s. And this was up to 1973 the most powerful pace car ever! The sheer weight of the Eldorado convertible forced the Cadillac engineers to take some measures to allow the car to reach the high speeds needed. The 8.2 liter 500 CID engine was tweaked. A new crank was installed as was specially forged pistons and a dual exhaust system, even the bumpers were replaced with polished aluminum instead of steel. And there was actually a second spare car supplied by the factory, just in case that something happened to the first. Both pace cars also had hood pins to secure the hood/bonnet as well as the flag pole mounts in the rear.

Interestingly enough both cars survived the ordeal and one was actually converted back to a "normal" Eldorado convertible before being sold to the public. The other of the two actual pace cars were used for numerous testing purposes at the GM/Cadillac plant, for instance for testing rims and tires for the new generation of Chevrolet Corvette that was introduced in 1984. That car is said to have been scrapped and buried somewhere at a test facility.. Besides the two actual pace cars and the 53 track convertibles, there were a number of coupe devilles, two sedan devilles and even a Fleetwood used during the race week.
