“Bustleback Beauty - 1985 Cadillac Seville” – Hemmings Classic Car, December 2010

Hemmings writer, Jeff Koch, continued: “… hidden beneath that retro styling was one of GM's most technologically savvy chassis ever. It was front-wheel drive, of course, a by-product of sharing parts with the new-for-1979 Eldorado. But four-wheel independent suspension wasn't something that GM messed with much beyond the Corvette; torsion bars replaced coil springs in front, presumably to allow the transaxle's half-shafts greater leeway in their movement, while anti-roll bars were fitted front and rear. Electronic suspension leveling was part of the package from the outset, as were four-wheel disc brakes. Save for the front-wheel drive aspects, the chassis' equipment list reads like that of a German sedan that would have cost 50 percent more.”

Offered here in white over blue under a blue vinyl top is a 1985 Cadillac Seville. Original and in well-maintained condition, this luxury car is a true product of the Eighties, and remains impressive today in its style and options. Showing 94,604 miles on its odometer, this survivor Seville has traveled just over 2,600 miles per-year on average since new.

The car's exterior white paint retains excellent gloss; it has clearly been kept out of the sun and weather. Chrome bumpers and body trim are likewise glossy and undamaged; door handles, body-side trim, window surrounds, Cadillac-branded side mirrors, and twin rear faux hold-down straps on the "bustleback" are all in very presentable condition. The impressive front grille—with its “CS” and Cadillac-script emblems makes a powerful design statement. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) Body-panel fit and alignment is excellent, and sheet metal is free of dings and dents. It's evident the car was prized by its prior owners. The blue vinyl top is also free of wear, rips, or other damage. Tasteful factory identification—including script-Seville right-front-fender and rear deck-lid badges—is properly in place. Steel wheels feature (faux-wire-wheel-style) full chrome wheel covers with center Cadillac emblems on a deep red background. Michelin® XH4 all-season thin-whitewall tires are mounted.

Inside, the color theme is deep blue, and the emphasis is on luxurious comfort. Front and rear seats are upholstered in deeply tufted blue velour with Cadillac emblems embroidered in the backrests at all seating positions. Rear occupants have access to storage pockets in the front seatbacks. Door trim combines dark blue velour with embroidered script-Seville identification, blue leather armrests, wood trim, and dark blue carpet on the lower panels. Cabin carpeting is also dark blue. The blue padded dashboard incorporates instruments and vehicle controls in a square-design, woodgrain-trimmed presentation; the two-spoke steering wheel features a Cadillac emblem set on a square, woodgrain-trimmed center. The shift lever for the automatic transmission is mounted on the steering column. The car's trunk is generally tidy but with a tear in the carpet and another on the spare-tire cover noted. The trunk lid does not stay open without support.

Under the hood, the original 4.1-liter V8 is in place in a properly ordered but not detailed engine bay. All components—including air conditioning—are mounted, and no modifications are noted. Viewed from below, most components and untreated metal show surface rust. However, there is no chassis damage.

The Seville's original data and identification tags remain as mounted at the factory.

While the more than 125 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this Camaro SS in detail from every angle, including from below, we expect and encourage in-person inspections at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. Please call to arrange an appointment in advance as our showroom is not open to the public. And feel free to get in touch anytime by phone or email if you have questions.

A taste of true Eighties luxury in a handsome, well-maintained Cadillac Seville is a rare treat these days. In this car, the next owner will savor these lost delights over and over again. And we envy that person.
