Colors listed above in bold denote optional Firemist paint finishes. These paints feature a higher percentage of metallic particles in them for a more reflective shimmer.
  Consider the difference in appearance:

Eldorado in standard form with bare painted roof...

Fleetwood Eldorado in optional Topaz Gold Firemist (code 94).
 
  ...and Eldorado with optional vinyl roof...

Fleetwood Eldorado in Topaz Gold Firemist (code 94) with optional Dark Brown Padded Vinyl Roof.
 
 
Note: The popularity of the vinyl roof had grown considerably since its introduction, and the majority of all 1968 Eldorados built were equipped with the $132 padded roof option. Eldorados that left the factory without this option are highly sought after today, as many collectors feel a "bare top" Eldorado better emphasizes the car's beautiful lines. Vinyl roofs were available in 5 colors for 1968: White, Black, Dark Blue, Dark Brown, and Sandalwood.
