For Sale: 1979 Cadillac Seville in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

The first-generation Cadillac Seville was built to compete with the Europeans while still not losing its Cadillac style. It represents a hint of a sporty attitude added to its traditional luxury personality. So if this sounds appealing to you, this affordable triple-black sedan should have you quite interested.


The Seville has the unmistakable crisp style we expect from a classic Caddy sedan. But this also doesn't qualify for the same kind of "land barge" image that some of the other American luxury cars had in the1970s. Instead, the designers took their time slimming it down correctly - making it look athletic, not anemic. Flared fenders, chrome bumpers, and well-integrated lines make it a true contender. So you'll love it right down to details, like the waterfall grille that appears like it flows through the bumper. And the true sophistication of this one comes from the color combo. Black paint and a black vinyl roof are timelessly stylish. The full package looks highly original, and that means you can identify some use over 40+ years. But the crisp/clean lines let you know this range-topping Cadillac has been treated with the proper respect it deserves. There's even a silver pinstripe for an elegant way to show off the straight body panels.


The black leather interior joins the paint and roof to deliver the ultra-desirable triple-black package. There's more of the European influence with bucket seats. But Cadillac did it to their standards by offering plenty of bolstering and individual fold-down armrests. The front seats even individually power adjust for the ideal comfort position. The Seville started out more expensive than the larger and heavier DeVille line, and so you got the best features of the time. This includes cruise control, power windows, power locks, and a moonroof (a rarely seen feature on Cadillacs of this era.) Plus, the air conditioning has been updated to modern R134a refrigerant, but it will need servicing to blow cold again. And while many imports would have small back seats, Cadillac remembered that luxury motoring often means leaving plenty of room for family and friends.


The Seville was one of the last cars to utilize Oldsmobile's excellent 350 cubic-inch V8. This one appears to be original, right down to the blue paint on the block and the big black air topper. But if you look closely, you'll notice a four-barrel carburetor has been added to make this easier for everyday servicing. The Seville utilized its own platform that offered better isolation than other midsize cars within GM. That's combined with a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and sway bars front & rear, to deliver proper luxury in a nimble package.
