Not mine.

I thought the first-gen Eldorado design was timeless, but not quite *that* timeless.

  Cadillac did away with round headlights in 1975; was this a type error and should have been 1974?  EAM

Not sure.............but this does appear to be a 1969 Eldo.

Yes, it's a 1969. I've been trying to figure out how you get to "1984" as a typo.

Maybe the ad was entered by someone who had no idea of what a 1984 Eldorado looks like? Maybe they simply picked a number out of thin air?

Yes itís a scam ad. So - you guys don't know but one of my "hobbys" over the past few years has been CL and market searches for cars.  This is coffee drinking couch potato stuff which must end BUT - I usually put in price points on my searches because I am cheap. That has lead in the past 6 months to finding these kind of ads. Sometimes I enthusiastically cross post so someone can get a car that appears to be a bargain. 

But recently 2 of the old Buick finds have been scams. I also stupidly bit on a newer Audi TT for my daughter - bit as in I made an inquiry.  As soon as I got a scammy looking reply I googled the car and it came up elsewhere for much more money. 

Basically - if there is ONE high definition photo, and usually no more than 3, and the text is minimal and does not look right, and the price is way too right, just pass.   You can tell the Nigerian scammers don't know cars, as this ad demonstrates.
