Bought a Barn Find 1977 Cadillac Seville!

Recommended Posts

Well I bought a 77 Seville in exactly the color I was looking for, guess What? It was only $600 total! It has documented 36000 miles (I have all the records a big file). I cant believe how excellent it looks! It had not been on in a while since 2015 or so and I threw a new battery in and it fired right up! It will need new belts, hoses, radiator, alternator and a/c work. All power items and electrical work even the antenna and auto trunk.  Tomorrow I will clean it up and post better pics! It also has an 8 track! I cannot believe it!!!!!

Reminds me of a friend whose mom got one of these in 76 or 77.  Fun to get rides back from town pool & really 9 hole golf course we would go to everyday.   When it was my families turn to drive the custard olds must have been a let down.  Seville was a big deal when it first came out as I recall.

Just goes to show: if you look, you find. Always liked the early ones better than "Billy Mitchel's Revenge".

 

ps need the little extraction tool to pull the A/C clutch, can do on the car. Make sure you remove the nut first.

Of course it would be CA.  You should try to accomplish the same thing in the Northeast.  So there is atleast one good thing about CA.  Clean cars.

Caddy must put effort into the smell of the leather interiors, I remember it clearly when my friends mom used to ferry us around.  When I got my new CTS a few years ago,  if was identical to the Seville and different from other brands w leather.  Countt me a Caddy fan.

Did the radiator today, it was rotted through and leaking! I am hoping to do the alternator and belts next week.

what kind of AC work or don't you know yet ?

 

You can replace the clutch on that AC compressor fairly easy without having to break the system.

 

I have used this web page to do it before.
