1957 Cadillac Seville
When it comes to class and luxury the Cadillac is king. With long bodies, unique fins, lots of chrome, and all of the latest greatest features the 50's Cadillacs had it all. These cars have become quite sought after in recent years with one 57 Cadillac Seville setting a record at Mecum a few years back after it was sold for $150,000. The 1957 Cadillac Seville you see here is a beautiful example of one of these cars and was very well built. It has been slightly modified from original to transform it into a very comfortable driver. That being said it still has all of the correct 50's accents and from the exterior you would never know any modifications had even taken place. It was completed 2 years ago and has been very well maintained since. It was entirely gone through with the floor pans and trunk pan being replaced. The body is in good condition and solid with no rust issues. Painted in a Black Cherry Metallic the car shines beautifully out in the sun. In certain lights the car can take on an almost Black appearance and this color really suits the car well. All of the original chrome and stainless is in place and the car wears one of the coolest looking grills found in the classic car world. All of the glass is in excellent shape and with the windows all rolled down this hardtop classic takes on a very cool appearance. Original wheels and hubcaps are tucked under each fender and wrapped with wide white wall tires which this car wouldn't look right without.
Under the hood is the 365 ci original dual quad motor paired with an automatic with overdrive transmission. The motor has that original factory appearance except the triangle air cleaner has been changed from Gold to the match the Black Cherry exterior. It still has the Gold Cadillac valve covers and Blue Cadillac block. You may be wondering where those modifications we mentioned early are. Well that comes into play with the Fatman front end, power rack and pinion steering and power all wheel disc brakes. These subtle changes keep the car looking like a factory but give you the ability to drive very comfortably down the road.
The interior is finished out in a Black and White color combo that is in great shape. The tuck and roll style upholstery works great on the bench seats. All of the original knobs, gauges, and switches are found on the dash and all work properly. A custom steering wheel tops off the tilt steering column and is painted two tone to match the rest of the interior. The AC/Heat works properly and utilizes nicely mounted vents below the dash. The trunk is done in White and Black to match the interior and houses the spare tire.
When you are driving a classic Cadillac, you can tell the quality that was put in it from the beginning.
