Eldarado's are all front wheel drive so the transmission isn't anything of use unless of course you have another Eldorado. I believe the transmission is similar to the Toranado but again no value.

OP, what did you end up doing with your reprieve of several weeks?

Even if you don't intend to restore it (and I certainly wouldn't), if the car can be made driveable, can you go have some stupid big block fun for a summer, then scrap it?

I'm sure this guy spent more on the headlights and the wrap than your car is worth, but you could go this route with some spray paint.
