1984 Cadillac Product Changes and New Features
Cadillac Best sales year for the 1980s was 1984, with 327,144 units sold. Its worst sales year for the decade was 1980 with 205,044 cars sold.However, the 1984 high was to decline to 265,778 units by 1988. Cadillac revived a drop-top Eldorado for 1984 and promptly angered those who had bought “last convertible’ ’76s for outrageous sums. The new Biaritz was hardly cheap at $31,286, though that partly reflected its being an outside conversion, not a factory job. The one and only drive train comprised Cadillac’s year old 4.1-liter aluminum V-8 teamed with four speed turbo hydra matic. Model year sales were predictably limited at just 3300 units. The Eldorado vert was not the only story for 1984, check out this video to discover the changes made for the entire lineup that year, including the very rare D’Oro edition Cimarron. Cimarron d’Oro (“Cimarron of gold”) was introduced with almost all of Cimarron’s optional equipment as standard, brightwork subdued by painting it body-color for a euro-style monochromatic look with gold-toned grille, wheels, badging and accenting inside and out. Available only in Sable Black with Saddle interior, it provided an extremely distinctive-looking top model for Cimarron buyers willing to fork over almost $ 1,000.00 for this option package.
