Pedigree Motorcars is proud to offer this very special 1979 Cadillac Seville Elegante. For details and information contact Ken Baker at 561-866-1601.

This beautiful Cadillac is offered out of Pedigree's private collection. This car was hand selected and prepared for the owner of Pedigree Motorcars. No expense was spared in it's reconditioning. This Seville is one of the finest, if not the finest example to be found on the market anywhere today. All of our cars are serviced and the highest level of attention is given to ensure its reliability and is ready to be driven at any time. In addition to all of the service work we do, we also have performed:

Ceramic Coating and paint correction
Ceramic UV window tint -all windows except the windshield
Center console cup holder that is removable and color matched
Indoor car cover with carrying bag

The Seville Elegante offered Cadillac customers qualities and refinements one might expect on a custom-crafted automobile. The duo-tone exterior finish was offered in just one color combination for 1979, a subtle dignity exclusive to the Elegante. A full-length brushed chrome upper body molding accentuated the Seville's classic lines, and featured an etched black grooving for added distinction. Chrome Elegante script was placed on the roof sail panels, just behind a Cadillac wreath and crest emblem. Authentic chrome-plated Wire Wheels (not wheel covers) with long-laced spokes were supplied by Dunlop, a British firm, and set the Elegante apart from others. A Cadillac crest appeared on the hubs, set against a black background. A unique rear window molding provided additional detailing.

Inside the Elegante, a Seville interior like no other. Sierra Grain Leather in Antique Gray appeared on the seat bolsters, and breathable, perforated leather inserts were used in the pleated center cushion and seat back areas. A border of soft, suede-like trim surrounded the pleated areas. The front seats were 40/40 Dual Comfort seats, and provided storage pockets on the seat backs for the convenience of rear seat passengers.

A functional console separated the front seats, and included a rear floor courtesy light, and a light in the storage compartment, which had provisions for writing tablet and pen, a mobile telephone installation, and storage of tapes and other personal items. Driver and front passenger share a center, fold-down armrest for comfort.

Additional interior distinctions included perforated trim on the door panels, and the steering wheel rim was covered with color-coordinated leather to match the darker shade of gray used on the steering wheel hub, column, and instrument panel. For 1979, Cadillac introduced a plush Tangier carpeting in the Elegante. Tangier had the look and feel of fine fur.

Our Seville was purchased to be part of our private collection. We prepare our cars with the highest attention to detail so that they can be driven and enjoyed on a daily basis. We make sure that it is up-to-date and everything functions as it should. In reality, we go way overboard. When our car arrived we were not happy with the paint on it. We had the car completely stripped and repainted to our high standards. Between the repaint, paint correction and ceramic coating, over $13,000 was spent for it to have the magnificent appearance it has today. We also added ceramic UV protectant window tint as seen in the photographs.

Mechanically, we spared no expense. This Seville runs and drives beautifully and has been extremely reliable. Everything works as it should, and the air-conditioning blows ice cold.

Over $12,000 has been spent on mechanical work on our Seville, the results are spectacular. We have put nearly 2000 miles on our car and it has been wonderfully reliable and a pleasure to drive. It's also a head turner everywhere it goes.

We are offering this Seville Elegante for sale to the discriminating buyer who only wants the best. These cars rarely come up for sale. Because of all the work we did, we are confident that the new owner will not have to put any money into this car to enjoy it daily.
