Restoration Project: 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Seville

Bulbous and bold with lots of gleaming chrome and decadent luxury aptly describes the styling of 1950s era Cadillacs.  By 1957, Cadillac had long-established its reputation as America’s premier luxury automobile and the Eldorado model line was the pinnacle of that opulence.

The low-production Eldorado model line consisted of the Biarritz (convertible) and Seville (hardtop coupe). Today, the convertible top is the more popular choice among classic Cadillac owners, however, the Seville has a very loyal following as well.

This completed 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Seville restoration project by the CPR team servesOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA as a wonderful example of why these cars remain so popular today. Audacious and elegant, this stunner turns heads whether on the street or the show field.

For over thirty years, Cadillac Parts & Restoration (CPR) has proudly associated with the Cadillac & LaSalle Club.  CPR’s restorations have won many first place trophies over the course of that relationship but the 2014 and 2015 CLC Grand National Meets were particularly successful.

The 2014 meet in Lake George, NY saw three Cadillac Parts & Restoration (FEN) completed projects entered and each won a First Place trophy in its respective class. In 1958-Cadillac-Eldorado-Seville-restoration-4Milwaukee, WI, (2015), their already acclaimed 1958 Cadillac Eldorado Seville took home not only the prestigious First Place – Senior award but also earned the judges’ nod for Best of Show.

The next year in Las Vegas, NV that very same Eldorado Seville won the prestigious Senior Wreath award given to only the very best of the best classic Cadillacs entered for judging.

Cadillac Parts & Restoration: underway and recently completed projects

Even during the holiday season, the Cadillac Parts & Restoration (CPR) team remains busy. Our classic Cadillac restoration projects are in full swing and as soon as one car leaves our facility, another rolls (or is flat-bedded) in.

Undergoing a full restoration, and entering the assembly stage, is a highly-collectible 1960-cadillac-eldorado-biarritz-restoration-cpr83-21960 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz. This convertible will be completed in time for its proud owner to enjoy plenty of top-down cruising.

This is the third restoration project we’ve performed for this customer and we’re glad to have earned his loyalty.

Another 1960 Cadillac, a very rare Eldorado Brougham just left CPR with a new dash pad 1960-cadillac-eldorado-brougham-restoration-cpr5and some other electrical and mechanical repairs completed. Built in Italy by Pininfarina, this classic is one of just 101 produced that model year.

The owner of such a collectible classic should only trust a professional and experienced team to care for their vehicle. Serving the classic Cadillac community since 11984, CPR’s staff is the correct choice

A majority of our projects are repeat business from loyal customers and that includes this 1976 Cadillac Seville1976 Cadillac Seville. Her owner drives the low-mileage car all the way from Virginia just for CPR to perform repairs and maintenance.

This car’s owner has had this car long before 1970s Cadillacs became popular and as much as he loves this car he’ll be sending it to CPR for many more years to come.

Also currently underway are two 1957 Cadillac Series 62 coupes that, while not “full” restorations, are fairly extensive. You can stay up-to-date with CPR’s progress by following our Cadillac restoration Facebook page.
