Instantly recognized as a motorcar of special distinction, the hardtop Eldorado Seville was a platform for glamorous styling and luxury appointments. This uncommon platform was fitted with ultra-fashionable interiors, while the body sides and doors reflect the styling of the respected Eldorado Biarritz Convertible. All Sevilles, only 2,100 examples are reported as being built, came extremely well-equipped; few options were even offered, this particular car has optional air conditioning, Saber-Spoke wheels, whitewall tires, AM radio; power windows, steering and brakes. The Cadillac Seville is powered by the twin-carb 365-cid, 300-hp V-8 and exhibits the familiar “batwing” air cleaner.

This is reported as a beautifully maintained original example that has a wonderful interior with a clean engine compartment, nicely presented chrome elements, iconic rear tailfin design accents, great paint presentation, plus the Seville is stated to run and drive properly.
