1989 Cadillac Allante description
If you want a fascinating piece of automotive history, look no further than this 1989 Cadillac Allante!In the late eighties, Cadillac wanted to enter the ultra-luxury car market and compete with cars such as the Mercedes SL500. At a price of almost $60,000 in 1989, the Allante sold in limited quantities mostly due to price, around 3500 were made in 1989.
Designed and hand-built by the famous Italian design firm Pininfarina, in Turin Italy, and shipped by plane back to Michigan where Cadillac installed motors and suspension.
Recaro leather power seats, Carrello headlights, Bosch suspension, Bose Audio (not functioning), there is a lot of neat stuff in this car!
Automatic, 160k miles, runs and drives great, handles well.
NO RUST! ORIGINAL PAINT!
Beautiful digital dash, luxurious interior.Best enjoyed with no roof!
COLD AC! New compressor and related parts installed this spring with a year warranty!
4.5 liter V8 (fwd) making 200 HP. Pretty quick!(This is not the Northstar motor, that is only 93 models.)
Newer Michelin tires!
Original Manual folding soft top in excellent condition. One person can fold down the top in one minute or less. Glass heated rear window.
Includes aluminum hardtop that goes on in winter, as well as a storage stand for the top!
There is a YouTube video that explains top operation. It isn't hard and it all works fine.
It's ready to get in and drive!Makes a fanatically fun daily driver, or start taking it to car shows and work on the minor stuff as you go!
It's a dependable classic car, but like anything, age will bring about a few minor issues. It's a really nice car, but of course I want to be up front about any attention it needs. It is a 27 year old vehicle, it isn't perfect, but a beautiful driver.
Minor dings.One golf ball hit.Paint is gorgeous, clear coat imperfections on front bumper only is visible up close.Turn signals work fine, but the indicator does not light up on the dash.
Does occasionally leak a small amount of oil. (Some oil change place overtightened the drain plug.) I always keep an eye on it. I only use full synthetic.
Bose Radio only picks up static. For now, I use a Bluetooth rechargeable speaker that lasts many hours on a charge.
Passenger power seat may need a motor on right side. Most functions work, it will not slide forward or backward easily.
Horn does not honk. May be a fuse or relay. I will try to work on this.
Error Codes:ABS light comes on after driving. Stops fine. Ticking from rear left caliper when going over bumps.
"Cooling Fan Fault" sometimes appears on the screen. It does not get hot while driving. One of the electric fans may need looked at.
Passenger door power lock is slow.
Overall, it is a beautiful car, ready to drive, but as with any classic, it will have a few annoyances that can be resolved over a few weekends. I just haven't had time.

This is a vehicle you will enjoy owning. I have enjoyed every moment driving it, it is a blast to have the top down.
I highly recommend a FaceTime walk around or a test drive in person. It is a really fun car.On Oct-23-16 at 20:13:45 PDT, seller added the following information:
I forgot to mention, I am a member of the national Allante Club. They schedule car shows and road trips. They are a fun and knowledgeable bunch, well worth the $40/year membership. They also have accessories and neat memorabilia that they sell.
I have a set of floor mats I believe are original, I have put them in the large trunk to keep them in great shape for car shows. The vinyl mats that are in the car now do a great job.On Oct-24-16 at 04:52:44 PDT, seller added the following information:
I also added a few more photos with the hardtop on. I'm still debating whether I like the look of the hardtop or no top better!On Oct-24-16 at 04:57:55 PDT, seller added the following information:
