The Black exterior is in excellent driver condition. As one can see in the photos, the finish has dazzling gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish. The wire wheel and center caps are in beautiful condition with a nice finish and no curb rash. The whitewall Vogue tires really compliment the look of this car and have about 90% tread left. The chrome looks excellent with a nice finish and no corrosion. The vinyl top looks beautiful with no splits or damage. There are some very small blemishes around the car that were too tiny to show up in pictures, but nothing that is really noticeable from about five or ten feet away. There is on spot on the filler behind the front bumper on the right side which is visible in the photos below. The underside of the Seville is exceptionally clean. This Cadillac has absolutely NO RUST ISSUES. The frame is totally solid. We have included many photos of the underside to show how great it looks. We have also included photos of the rockers, lower front and rear quarter panels, and the other areas most prone to rust.
The Black Leather interior of the Seville is in fantasic condition. The seats are in excellent shape and look just in person as they do in the photos with no split seams, tears, or excessive wear. Please note that these are the original seats, not some cheap aftermarket covers or replacements. The carpet is also in great condition with no stains, rips, or holes. The carpet on the door panels is in good shape and not faded. All of the carpet in the car is also original. The gauge faces are clean and crisp and the gauge lenses are crystal clear. All of the woodgrain inside looks great with no delamination. The door panels are in excellent condition, fit well to the doors, and the door pulls are in tact. The dash and console look awesome with no splits, sun fading, or cracks. The original radio works well, sounds clear, and gets good reception. Most importantly the dash has never been cut or modified for an aftermarket installation. There is some sagging in the headliner. The jack and jack handle are still present and stowed correctly in the trunk. This Cadillac has never been smoked in, there are no burns marks and no aroma of cigarettes at all. GM interiors from this era are not known to wear well and the spectacular condition of this original interior is a huge testament to the meticulous care and attention this car has received throughout it's life.
This Cadillac appears to be in very nice mechanical condition. The engine starts right away every time and runs well. It is a great driver that floats down the road. In the video below one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, shifting through all the gears, braking to a stoplight, and going through some curves. Please note that it runs great, there are no strange noises or vibrations, and the car performs quite nice overall. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. The brakes were recently serviced by the previous owner. There is no blue smoke when starting or driving the car. It runs cool and does not overheat. Also, the engine bay is clean, nicely detailed, and correct as one can see from the photos.
Please note in the video that the warning lights work properly. They light up when the key is first turned on and then go off when the engine is started. There are no "check engine" or other warning lights that stay on. All of the digital controls for the heater and a/c still work. Also, the a/c works and blows cold, one can observe the a/c compressor clicking on and engaging properly in the video. All of the gauges work as do all the exterior lights, indicators, wipers, horn, power locks, all the power windows, both power mirrors in all directions, and the power seat in all directions. This Cadillac is smooth and has plenty of power with the V8 engine. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car.
Overall, this 1985 Cadillac Seville is in wonderful driver condition. The excellent original condition, the very low original mileage, and beautiful color combination make this Cadillac especially important and difficult to duplicate. This car always gets a ton of attention driving down the road. The classic Sevilles are becoming highly collectible and the market on them is on the rise. They are secure and wise investments for a collector. One could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal effort.
