In '84, the base engine in the Eldorado was the 135-horse 4.1 liter V8, which was good enough to haul the car's 3,748 pounds. The disastrous Oldsmobile 350 diesel engine was also available… but let's not go there. The '84 Eldorado Biarritz sold new for $23,737 before options, which was $52,422 in 2008 dollars. That's about 800 bucks less than a new '84 BMW 528e, but who's counting?
With the $3,395 Biarritz option package, you got a vinyl landau top for the rear part of the roof and a brushed stainless steel section on the front. The stainless part on this car has laughed off the effects of 24 years of California sunshine, but the vinyl hasn't fared quite so well.
You also got fine "button tufted" leather upholstery with your Biarritz; in this case, the green interior goes well with the Autumn Maple Firemist exterior paint.
We mustn't forget Ace Rothstein's '84 Biarritz (fast-forward about 45 seconds in). Thanks for the reminder, Mr. Choppers!
