The Cadillac Eldorado was a luxury automobile first introduced in
1953 and packed all the top of the line features available in its
day. They proved popular because Cadillac continued the series
across 12 generations spanning all the way until 2002. The 1957
Eldorado Seville you see is a beautiful example of one of these
classics and was extremely well built. With its beautiful chrome,
beautiful paint and those long tail fins it just screams vintage
luxury. The car easily has over 6 figures invested turning it into
the mostly original but slightly restomodded version you see here.
The elegant Cadillac body is very straight and features a beautiful
custom Black Cherry paint. The paint work is top notch with no
expense spared. All of the chrome and bright work is in exceptional
condition with zero issues. All of the glass is good as well. There
really isn't anything to knock on the car. At first glance you may
think those are hubcaps but it is actually riding on an extremely
clean set of Cadillac Kelsey-Hayes Sabre wheels with wide white
Powering this beauty is the factory 365 ci motor. The dual quad
carb set up has been rebuilt and topped with Cadillac's very unique
triangle air cleaner that has been painted to match the body.
Everything looks very stock under the hood except for the chrome
air cleaner and modern polished AC compressor. The rest of the
drivetrain is where those light restomod touches come in. The motor
has been custom adapted to a 700R4 automatic transmission that
shifts smoothly with no issues. It has also been upgraded up front
with and IFS Mustang II suspension, disc brakes and a modern power
brake booster and dual master cylinder. Other nice features include
the custom stainless tank and Rack and Pinion steering.
The interior on the car is absolutely gorgeous and in excellent
condition. It is done in a White and Black combination that looks
great. It has folding arm rests in front and rear, chrome Cadillac
emblems in the top and stainless trim. The trim has a pretty stock
appearance with that same Black and White combo featured across the
dash and onto the tilt steering wheel. All of the original gauges,
switches, etc work properly. The upgraded AC system utilizes
underdash vents and it blows cold. The car has power seats and
power windows which work correctly as well. The trunk is finished
out in a matching Black/White combo and is extremely clean. It has
a power trunk release and auto close system. The way that works is
when you put the deck lid into an almost closed position it
automatically soft closes the rest of the way.
This is such a clean, great looking car that is ready to go.
