FOR SALE: 1956 Eldorado Seville, the first model year of the Eldorado coupe. The car is in very good condition, drives well, and is quite presentable as you can see from the photos. This vehicle is basically an unrestored original, with 92,000 on the odometer. It has many original features - trim, upholstery, engine; I have had this car (in California) since 1988. An excellent choice for a Concours restoration, since everything is there and ready for a refresh. The car was originally shipped from the factory to Utah and was obtained from the original owner's widow. I have the build sheet confirming the ship-to location and other documents from GM, including a copy of the service manual.
