Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
The 1986 Cadillac Seville is a truly premium machine. It was built to compete with the Europeans while still not losing its Cadillac style. They were made to be special cars, and so that's why it's terrific to find an ultra-low mile example that is coming off of long-term ownership. It makes for a loaded luxury Caddy that has true pedigree and poise.
The story we're told is that this one was purchased from the owner of Keyser Cadillac, and this one even still has the Keyser badge on the back. It was only a few years only and very few miles. Plus, you just know the boss's car gets the best care. And from that point on it has never left the next family. The consignor's son describes the level of care his father gave to this Caddy, including storing it in a climate-controlled garage for many years and only taking it out about 100 miles annually (that's how the odometer remains so low.) The level of preservation is so superb that the largest marks you'll likely find on the factory Light Driftwood finish is from washing and waxing.
The consignor described how his father took immaculate care, right down to buying aftermarket floor mats to preserve the factory carpets and mats. And when it comes to the upholstery, the tan leather interior has the look, smell, and supple feel of a time capsule. This is loaded with all the best features, including power windows, power locks, cup holders, the premium, AM/FM/cassette stereo, and automatic A/C climate control. Because this was built to rival the driver's car from Europe, you have individual front bucket seats that power adjust, a center console, a tilt steering column, and the cool glow of the digital gauges. The front-wheel-drive and rear wheels set far back make for exceptional interior room for a mid-size cruiser. The wheelbase also gave it a far more confident ride than other cars of its size. So while you know this one is a looker with some history, also take some time to appreciate the engendering behind the beauty.
Under the hood is the original 4.1-liter motor. This fuel-injected V8 can make a little growl when you feel like digging into the accelerator, but really, we love this for how it retains its classic Cadillac quiet composure during everyday driving. The four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive gives it great off-the-line response and pleasant highway manners. And cruise control means this classic Caddy remains a great long-distance tourer. Plus, the driver's car feeling is in here with desirable grand touring features like a fully independent suspension and four-wheel power disc brakes.
A special car like this needs the right paperwork, and so the sale comes complete with the factory buildsheet, original warranty card, owner's manual, maintenance records, and more. This is the premium Caddy with awesome survivor care. A cherished classic like this is rarely so affordable. Don't miss out, call today!
