STK 2817 1978 Cadillac Seville Elegante

The Cadillac Seville was introduced in 1975 as a new 'International' size Cadillac. It was almost 1,000 pounds lighter than the full-size model, much more nimble, but still Cadillac luxurious. Beginning with the GM X-body platform, Cadillac engineers reworked much of the chassis design and created the K-body platform that was unique to the Seville. Our Cadillac is a Seville 'Elegante' model, a luxury option to the base Seville that was first introduced in 1978. This Elegante is an all-original example except for one professional 2-stage respray in 2015. The owner states that the odometer reading of just over 30,200 miles is actual. Its exterior was refinished in original 2-tone Ruidoso Brown Metallic and Western Saddle Firemist and is in outstanding condition. Factory chrome 'Long Spike Wire Wheels', standard on the Elegante, mount 15” Hankook whitewall radials. The original Antique Medium Saddle Sierra Grain perforated leather interior is in excellent condition. Convenience features include power seats, power tinted-windows/locks, tilt/telescopic wheel, cruise and sunroof. Mounted in the dash is a rare factory Cadillac option - the AM/FM/8-Track stereo. The Seville is powered by a 350ci engine (gasoline) that was sourced by Cadillac from GM's Oldsmobile Division and fitted with Bendix/Bosch electronic fuel injection. We are told that this cast iron (block/heads) motor has not been rebuilt. It is a dependable, smooth running powerplant that delivers 270lb/ft of torque to a three-speed automatic gearbox. Finally, the Seville's chassis incorporates power steering and 4-wheel power disc brakes. This sharp, low-mileage Cadillac Seville Elegante is a well-maintained eye-catcher that will not be here long. ALL VEHICLES SOLD “AS IS”.
