Well, the major things are the Eldo has the Wrap-around windscreen, and the doors have a different shape on the top, where it slopes slightly downwards toward the rear.

Here's a look at both. As Bruce said, the main difference was the wrap around windshield and the cut down doors. And oh ya,...The Price!!
