One can only imagine the stress for the Cadillac design team after the 1959 debuted to the public. Although it is considered one of the most desired cars among Cadillac collectors today, the 1959 model was extremely audacious for potential car buyers during the day! Its wild charisma wasn’t for everyone, and may have turned many longtime Cadillac enthusiasts from showrooms. The answer in 1960 was a milder, more subdued design to woe traditional buyers back. They could not have been timelier in that decision, but sadly, 1960 would mark the end of the Eldorado Seville Hardtop Coupe, tri-carburetion engines, and air ride suspension. The 1960 top of the line Eldorado models now rivals several model series as one of the most desirable Cadillacs to own today! Only 1,075 Eldorado Seville Hardtop Coupes would find garages.
We are excited to offer this 1960 Cadillac Eldorado Seville Hardtop Coupe cosmetically restored to factory specifications including its repainted Olympic White (color code 12) exterior with Red/White two-tone interior (59) and Eldorado specific White fabric roof! It comes powered by its original, numbers matching 390ci-3x2bbl V8 engine that produces a factory rated 345hp and Hydra-Matic transmission. Features and optional equipment include factory air conditioning, 6-way power driver seat, Guide-Matic automatic headlight dimmer, power windows, vent glass, & locks; factory standard power steering & brakes, heat/defrost, dual outside rearview mirrors, cruise control, electric trunk release, rear fender skirts, polished full wheel disc covers & whitewall tires, E-Z Eye tinted glass, carpeted interior floor mats, carpeted trunk with trunk lamp, and more!
This gorgeous Eldorado comes from North Carolina before being sold in 2006 to its most recent Iowa owner for the past 12 years. Approximately 15 years ago, it was repainted professionally with superb results! The interior is covered in all soft leather and showing some minimal visual wear. The massive amounts of chrome and stainless bright work are all in excellent condition! Upon arrival to the St. Louis Car Museum & Sales, we elected to rebuild the brakes with new brake master cylinder, all wheel cylinders, brake fluid & front shoes; new valve cover gaskets, replaced the engine oil & filter, restored the HVAC dash vacuum system & converted the factory air conditioning system to R134a to be fully functional blowing cold air; replaced the transmission output shaft seal, new speedometer adapter o-ring, new transmission pan gasket & transmission fluids; front wheel oil seals, idler arm, bracket & bushings, lubed u-joints; new hood insulation, and then give this Cadillac a complete carburetor tune up and complete detailing from top to bottom. This elective service was only due to the car being used very infrequently this past couple of years and now starts, runs, and drives with total ease! Quite the head turner as well!
It remains absolutely solid underneath with outstanding panel fitment and gaps! Modifications do include upgraded audio system with Pioneer CD player and upgraded speakers, along with a tachometer located in the factory dash clock position. One of the hardest cars to find on the Cadillac market, and even harder in this condition! Named by CarLife magazine in 1960 as the “Best buy in the luxury car field!” We invite any questions on this solid blue chip investment vehicle! Please call to visit further or to schedule an opportunity to see it in person! We recommend acting very quickly!
