This is an untouched original, low mileage (94,000 miles), one owner car that has been garaged and pampered for 40 years. All service and repair records came with the car as well as a carton of spare parts that the owner collected "just in case". The original window sticker is pictured at the bottom of this page and also came with the car. The fuel injected 350 V8 engine, automatic transmission and AC function normally. The battery is new and the tires have plenty of tread, but are too old for long trips. No rips or tears in the white leather interior. No rust, vinyl top is flawless and the original paint still shines.

 Below are the only minor blemishes that I could find.

Specs and Description

Introduced in mid-1975 and billed as the new "internationally-sized" Cadillac, the 1976 Seville was almost 1,000 pounds lighter than the full-sized Deville. The Seville was thus more nimble and easier to park, as well as remaining attractive to customers with the full complement of Cadillac features. At $13,000, the Seville was more expensive than every other Cadillac model except the Series 75 Fleetwood factory limousines and it was modestly successful in the marketplace. It spawned several imitators, including the Lincoln Versailles, and Chrysler LeBaron/Fifth Avenue. To ensure the quality of the initial production run of Sevilles, the first 2,000 units produced were identical in color (silver) and equipment. Total 1976 Seville production was 43,772 vehicles but Seville K-body sedans were built through 1979.
