Eldorado Hardtop Coupe Seville
Designer: Harley Earl
Chassis #: 5662049420
Sold for $33,550 at 2017 Motostalgia : Amelia Island.
The newly elected President, Dwight Eisenhower, rode down Pennsylvania Avenue in January of 1953 in a luxury convertible called the Cadillac Eldorado, giving many Americans their first glimpse of the new car. Over the next three years, the Eldorado would reign as the highest priced domestic car on the market, and it was only available as a convertible. In 1956, that changed, with the introduction of the Seville hardtop. It was based on the Coupe de Ville, but fitted with additional luxury accoutrements. It had power steering, brakes, windows and seats, along with a powered radio antenna. In the front was a specially anodized golden grille that was available at no extra cost, as were the unique Sabre wheels, available in polished aluminum or in gold tone, either available at no extra cost. One of the few options available for purchase was air-conditioning, which was a $538 option on top of the $6,711 base price. The interiors were appointed in all leather, however, a fabric inserts were available for the Seville. Power was supplied from the special Eldorado engine, fitted with dual four-barrel carburetors rated at 305 HP.

This particular example is finished in its original Bahama Blue, with a white Vicodee fabric roof. It has the optional air conditioning, the less flamboyant golden grille, and the gold-tone Sabre wheels. The interior is finished in a two-tone of blue and gray leathers. Currently, the vehicle has just under 34,100 miles which are believed to be from new.
