Bait-n-Switch: 1967 Cadillac Eldorado Carbeque Project

Ahh, the old bait-n-switch, a craigslist classic.  But todays bait-n-switcher leads with a picture of a gorgeous 50s Cadillac Eldorado with matching custom trailer built from the rear end of another Eldo -- classy stuff.  Unfortunately, not only is this listing only for the rear end, but it a pile of rust, and from a '67 Eldorado.  Carbeque, indeed..but at least the price is right.  Find this 1967 Cadillac Eldorado Carbeque Project offered for $50 in Novato, CA via craigslist.  Tip from Kaibeezy.

Someday this could be a great carbeque, but today it just looks like what was left over after an unintended carbeque.  Luckily, the Eldorado rear end lends itself to this kind of nonsense because the rear section of a front drive car is just along for the ride anyway.

See another project that just needs a few minor tweaks to get on the road?
