1978 Cadillac Seville – The first generation Cadillac Seville was built between 1975 (as a 1976 model) and 1979. These were exquisite automobiles marketed as “International-size luxury.” This radically new design was refined and understated…yet unmistakably Cadillac. Powered by GM’s electronically fuel injected 5.7 litre V8 made it a performance luxury sedan. It was like nothing else that rolled off the Cadillac assembly lines. This genre Seville was the styling predictor for “The next generation of the luxury car” from Cadillac. The 1978 Cadillac Seville demonstrates its prowess…in the continuing saga of “As the Standard of the World Turns.” The Cadillac Seville’s crisp, contemporary lines found their way onto the 1977-1984 DeVilles, and the 1977-1992 Fleetwood Broughams. Who would ever have thought this vehicle would be larger than anything coming off the assembly lines today.
Sometimes getting behind the wheel of a real head-turning classic doesn’t have to cost you $100k+. In fact, there are even the rare occasions when you can still land an inexpensive classic vehicle that will appreciate daily (when well maintained) while you enjoy it. If you haven’t guessed yet, today is one such opportunity to do both! This amazing Seville was part of a large collection of low mileage classics that were sold to the public in 2018. One of our local customers purchased this Cadillac from that estate in 2018 with just over 20k miles and only added 400 miles of asphalt over the last few years. Upon arrival to our warehouse all it needed was a new battery and a quick detail. As seen in the photos, the rear bumper filler needs to be replaced to be up to par with the rest of the vehicle. A complete new set of filler panels can be purchased for $300 and painted for another $200. After that easy fix at your local paint shop, you will be the proud owner of the nicest 1st generation Seville anywhere. After 43 years we wouldn’t claim this Seville is “perfect” but after the minor repair mentioned, you definitely won’t find another example this nice. The outstanding curb appeal of the rare factory Canyon Copper Firemist paint paired with wide whitewall tires can’t be beat.
