Cadillac Eldorado Seville Coupe
Although Cadillac had achieved leadership status by 1960, it would begin making revisions to its own style and design. As a result, a greater emphasis was put on creating less flamboyant tail fins and chrome grilles, while more attention was given to precise detailing, clean lines and a smooth, sweeping body. Wheelbase and engine were carried over from the previous year, but further engineering enhancements were developed to make Cadillac an even more coveted automobile.
Equipped with all of the options and power amenities that were synonymous with the Eldorado line, the 1960 model year also featured cruise control, a Guide-Matic headlight dimmer, E-Z eye glass and factory air conditioning. Cadillac amazed buyers with a wide array of over 100 selections of interior trim combinations. With a total of thirteen Cadillacs issued in three distinct series, the Eldorado Seville along with the Biarritz would swiftly ascend to the top of every customer’s wish list.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in July of 2010 at the Shotwell Gustafson Pavilion at Meadow Brook Hall, Rochester, Michigan.
