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.

From humble beginnings…

When formed in 1984 by Elsa Mauer Nicodemus, FEN Enterprises operated out of a spare room in a 1740’s farmhouse. Although the primary business activity was selling parts and cadillac-parts-restoration-fbrestoration supplies to classic Cadillac owners, there was an opportunity to expand into the hands-on business of restoring the old cars.

It didn’t take long for FEN to establish a reputation as a premier restorer and the company flourished. It’s completed projects won many major awards and earned plenty of attention from media and news outlets.

Today, the team operates under the Cadillac Parts & Restoration name and continues to produce award-winning examples of restored Cadillacs. Their new restoration facility is located in Poughkeepsie, NY and can be reached for restoration inquiries by calling (845) 462-5959.
