1978 Cadillac Seville


Breathtaking 1978 Cadillac Seville!  This particular vehicle is an outstanding example of elegance, style and muscle.  Done in stunning silver/gray metallic, it has matching leather interior that is just as remarkable.


Driven only 40k original miles, this show car winner has been meticulously maintained and 100% garage kept.  It has been enhanced with brand new 19 inch BBS rims along with brand new Goodyear tires.


Everything mechanically works perfectly.  The problematic fuel injection system of the late 70's is not present in this automobile.  That is because it has been replaced with a carbureted system professionally installed by a certified mechanic and Master GM technician.  It has been fully serviced and its New Jersey inspection sticker does not expire until July 2016.


It has all the power options available for 1978 including 6-way power seats, power windows, power steering, power door locks, power trunk pull-down, power antenna, etc.  A tilt and telescopic steering wheel along with cruise control are also present on this extraordinary automobile.     


What I (especially) like about this car is that it drives like you are floating on a cloud and yet it has this distinctive, throaty rumble as you accelerate away... which is not really loud, but just thunderous enough to give you a feeling of true power and performance.


As you know, this model (made only from 1976 thru 1979) has dramatic styling and elegance and, with the addition of 19 inch rims, stands outrageously strong and actually looks statuesque when standing.  I think the best part about this Seville is its rare hardtop.  It just looks so much better than the tattered landau roofs of the 1970's.



Hold your check!  If you click the Buy It Now price or if I accept your Best Offer and you are coming in person to pick up the vehicle, I do not need a deposit.  Look at the car after you purchase it.  Inspect it with your mechanic and take it for a test drive.  If you like what you see, the car is yours!  If you don't like what you see or if you have buyer's remorse, no worries.  Keep your money.  I will simply relist the vehicle. 

I do not want anyone having second thoughts about purchasing this automobile.


Feel free to print this page and bring it with you as proof of my guarantee.  However, if you purchase this vehicle and choose not to inspect the vehicle but rather have the car shipped directly to you instead, then (of course) I cannot offer a purchase guarantee.


This is indeed a rare find.  Those of you who have been looking for this particular model know just how hard it is to find a '76 thru '79 hardtop in such pristine condition, with such low mileage and finished in such nice matching colors.  Then, to ultimately have it converted to a carbureted system is not only time-consuming, but a costly endeavor if you plan on doing it the right way with a Master GM technician.

Thank you for taking the time to appreciate this true classic. 

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

I reserve the right to end this auction early.

Car has 2 sets of keys with remote.

Cadillac's de Nysschen won't budge on raised pricing

Thu, 18 Sep 2014

According to new Cadillac boss Johan de Nysschen, it will take between 10 and 15 years to elevate GM's top brand, which was once hailed as "The Standard Of The World," back to prominence in the minds of American customers. And to hear the executive talk of it, the brand is going to have to be willing to see sales falter in the near-term before they recover:
"Either you have to bring your volume aspirations into alignment with reality and accept that you will sell fewer cars... Or you have to drop the price and continue to transact at the prices where you were historically... I think the logical conclusion is that it's better to build off a very solid base in terms of [product] credibility, charge a fair price for the car and realize you have to wait until the volume comes."
In other words, sales will fall before they rise, and the brand has to be okay with that. Notice, too, that de Nysschen speaks of "a fair price" for Cadillac cars and utility vehicles. In this case, "fair" means more than many of the brand's traditional buyers are accustomed to, and roughly in line with the brands and machines Cadillac believes it is competing against. For instance, the newly enlarged 2014 CTS carries a suggested retail price that is over $6,000 higher than it was in 2013, and some trim levels boast an even higher price premium over the models they replace.

Cadillac sales chief Peffer resigns amidst slow sales

Fri, 20 Jun 2014

Cadillac continues to hemorrhage executives, as it's just seen its fourth high-level departure in the past year. Vice President of Global Strategic Development Don Butler (who defected to Ford) and European President and Managing Director Susan Docherty both left the company of their own volition, while Chase Hawkins, Cadillac's vice president of sales and service, was fired following a "violation of policy" in July of 2013. Strangely, it's Hawkins' replacement, Bill Peffer (shown above), who has handed in his papers this time around.
"Bill left to pursue other interests. Kurt McNeil replaces him, effective immediately," spokesman David Caldwell told Autoblog via email.
McNeil last held the VP of sales and service position back in 2012. He's currently the vice president of US sales for all of General Motors. According to The Detroit News, McNeil will take on the post in what is likely an interim capacity.

What will the next Presidential limo look like?

Thu, 25 Jul 2013

With recent news that the Secret Service has begun soliciting proposals for a new armored limousine, we've been wondering what the next presidential limo might look like. The current machine, nicknamed "The Beast", has a design based on a car that's no longer sold: the Cadillac DTS. If General Motors gets the job again, which wouldn't be a surprise considering the government still owns a chunk of the company, the next limo's shape would likely resemble the new XTS (below, left). But Cadillac hasn't always been the go-to car company for presidential whips.
Lincoln has actually provided far more presidential limousines throughout history than Cadillac. In fact, the first car modified for Commander-in-Chief-carrying duty was a 1939 Lincoln K-Series called "Sunshine Special" used by Franklin D. Roosevelt, and the last Lincoln used by a president was a 1989 Town Car ordered for George H.W. Bush. If President Obama wanted a Lincoln today, it would likely be an amalgam of the MKS sedan and MKT crossover, as illustrated above.
And what about Chrysler? The only record we could find of a President favoring the Pentastar is Nixon, who reportedly ordered two limos from the company during his administration in the '70s, and then another one, known today as the "K-Car limo," in the '80s after he left office. Obama, however, has a personal - if modest - connection to Chryslers, having owned a 300 himself before he took office. A 300-based Beast (above, right) would certainly earn the U.S. some style points.
