Vehicle Description

1990 Cadillac Seville STS

When you first read STS you may be thinking of the Cadillac STS which was a mid size luxury Cadillac offered in the early 2000s. This however was actually the succesor to the Cadillac Seville first released in the late 80s. For those vehicles STS was actually an available trim package. While it stood for the same thing (Seville Touring Sedan) it was in those times offered as an upscale performance upgrade. The car we are offering here is one of those STS package Cadillacs and belongs to the 3rd generation of Sevilles. The STS package includes not only performance and suspension upgrades but also body modifications and restylings to give the cars a more sporty look than the standard Seville. In 1990 only 2,811 of these vehicles produced and out of those this is easily one of the nicest still in existance. It is all original and it is very clear the car has been well maintained. In addition to being well cared for since new it also has recently been gone through to make sure everything is in ready to roll condition. The car comes with its original window sticker showing that with all of its factory options it was purchased for $37,565 new in 1990. It is still sporting its original Royal Maroon paint that has just been fully detailed out including being fully clay barred and waxed multiple times to really bring out the beautiful finish. Everything is in really good shape throughout. Another option for the STS was the 16 inch machine finished alloy wheels with STS center caps. This one has had white wall luxury Vogue Tyres added with the thin gold line that really add to that luxury Cadillac exterior.

Performance is delivered via the 4.5 L V8 motor under the hood. 1990 was also a special year because a new fuel injection was introduced. Looking at how clean the engine compartment is gives you another indication of how well the car was taken care of throughout its life. The motor was just gone through and recieved a new timing cover gasket, new water pump/gasket, new timing cover, new drive belt and a full coolant flush. While the motors in the STS and Seville were the same the STS versions were backed by a 4 speed automatic w/OD transmission with a special final drive ratio of 3.33:1 for improved acceleration. The car shifts smoothly with no issues. One of the impressive things about the drivetrain on the car is actually its sound. You don't always expect a Cadillac to deliver that performance car sound but this one has a bit of raspiness to it delivered through the STS option dual exhaust with stainless tips. In addition to the engine work that was done on the car the suspension and brakes were also gone through as well. We have receipts for all this work and the bill not including the engine work above totalled $1,625 to re-do. This included new struts, lower ball joints, sway bar links, outer tie rods, an alignment, new front pads/rotors and new front hoses. The result is the nice smooth ride you would expect from a luxury Caddy.

The interior of the car is in excellent condition and its original Beechwood leather. As you would expect with a Cadillac everything was done with luxury in mind. From wood accents to the latest and greatest electronics available. It even has a full rear seat console which is a pretty unique feature. Everything on the inside is all stock with exception of the stereo. Although it was ordered with the optional Delco-Bose AM/FM/Cassette stereo system it stopped working so a aftermarket JVC AM/FM/CD/Bluetooth stereo was installed as well as Rockford speakers. It does come with the original stereo should you want to get it working and reinstall it for originality. It has plenty of storage comparments on the interior but for those bigger items the car has the STS trunk which was actually larger than the standard Sevilles.

These Cadillacs will always have a following especially when they have been so well maintained. So whether you are looking for your next luxury daily driver or have a Cadillac collection this car would be a great fit. It comes with the original window sticker, receipts for recent work, its original manual and 2 sets of keys one of which is the Gold key set.
