1985 Cadillac Seville Base Sedan 4-Door

Heads turn as this vintage Cadillac beautyrolls down the street. As I filled it up with gas yesterday, a small crowd gathered to admire it saying things like “that’s a fantastic car.” And, “wow man that is a beautiful car.” Also, it runs very well. It passed California's tough smog certification test and it is registered good for one year. I bought the car about 25 years ago from the man who was the gardener for the first owner, a truly elderly lady. All three owners lived in Central California, and it has been kept in a garage with upkeep, replaced fillers, new rugs, new white wall tires, new battery, new interior headliner, all 8 interior lights work, turn signals work. From new interior carpets to flawless blue leather button seats, to exterior paint and like-new soft-top, the car is a beauty.

This cool Caddy is in beautiful condition throughout and a fun car to drive. It's been underrated for years. Now the 1985 Seville is deemed "exceptional" in Hemmings Motor News, December, 2010. The article is titled, Bustleback Beauty - Cadillac Seville. It states, "Beneath the Seville's controversial styling lies what was arguably GM's most advanced chassis to date." The following are some paraphrased excerpts from that article: Let's take this one for a spin. The super-light steering makes for easy cornering and handling around town. The flat, plush, button-tuck seats actually keep you in place very well while the car rolls ever so gently around the bends. The four-wheel disc brake system stops the car quickly and effectively, without any drama. Many Seville owners experience a 20-22 MPG highway average. Suddenly, the benefits of 135hp, a transaxle with overdrive and a smaller front end to the wind start to prove themselves in a very positive way.

The leather-wrapped tilt wheel helps enormously when you're getting in. Head and shoulder room are surprisingly spacious. The completely flat floorpan does help to enhance the feeling. The driver's armrest controls all manner of functions, including locks, windows, mirrors and the pilot's chair; they all work together, and they all exude a high level of quality.

It's outfitted with a traditional interior with leather and faux wood, competing with high-tech digital readouts. It sold better at the end of its life than the useful middle. And, of course, it sported that decidedly yesteryear tail treatment on one of GM's most advanced chassis ever. These details add up to a car that is most assuredly under-rated as one of the most technologically forward-thinking machines Detroit built at the dawn of the 1980s.
