1956 Cadillac Eldorado Seville for Sale
1956 Cadillac Eldorado Seville Factory Air Conditioning, California Car

Attractive and rare 1956 Cadillac Eldorado Seville for sale. Purchased by our client in 2011 through a Southern California dealer who acquired from a long-time southern California collector/owner who appears to have taken good care of it. He stated at that time that the miles were original. Our client has driven the car approximately 3,000 miles over the last 8 years.

The 365/305HP V8 it's original 'Power Pack' dual Quad 4 Barrel Carburetor fires up and runs strong and smooth. Shifting is spot-on and the suspension and braking feel good and responsive. The car is easy to navigate with power steering and power brakes. Recent repairs and improvements include new tires, new power brake booster, new automatic transmission seals and gaskets, new exhaust, new foam in front and back seating area, new battery, new oil pan gasket.

The car was originally finished in Alpine White. At some point, it was properly and completely color changed to Mandan Red long ago. Due to the limited production of only about 2,150 of the Eldorado Seville, finding the color you wanted wasn't always possible so early color changes weren't too uncommon. The paint still holds a nice shine and though it has aged and has plenty of imperfections that can be seen up-close, it still is attractive, probably best described as a good "ten-footer".

The body is rust free and very straight. Be sure to see the video where I walk around the car with the magnet to show just how nice the body is underneath the paint along with the rust-free undercarriage. The chrome and trim are aged with a lovely patina. The car is equipped with the optional Gold Grille with matching Gold cast Sabre-Spoke wheels, winged hood mascot ribbed chrome door saddles as in 1955, wide angles gold 'V' in the center of the trunk lip, Cadillac script on the gold front grille, Eldorado Seville script nameplate on the front fenders.

The interior appears to be in mostly original condition with its Red & White Florentine Pattern Metallic Nylon with Leather Bolsters and Trim along with its rare and highly desirable factory options including Autronic eye automatic headlight dimmer, rear air vents, power windows, 6-way power driver seat, factory air conditioning.

This was the last year of the air conditioning unit to be trunk-mounted and therefore these rare air conditioned 1956 models were the last models to have the round air-intake appendages atop each rear quarter panel making them easily distinguishable from the non-air conditioned models, heater and defroster, original Signal-seeking with pre-selector radio (working) and antenna, back-up lights, power trunk release, original spare wheel, and jack.

So few of these special Cadillacs still exist making this a great opportunity to add a California, rust-free Eldorado Seville to your collection that you can use and enjoy regularly.

Currently, the power antenna, interior dome lamp, clock, fuel gauge, and power seat, A/C are inoperable. The horn is on a secondary switch. We are looking at these and may address certain items. Contact Donn for more information at 844-533-8262.

Reserves are subject to change over the course of an auction so please do not ask. The minimum I will take for the car is the most reasonable offer I receive.
