Footnotes

  • Always innovators in automobile technology, Cadillac continues to produce cars recognised everywhere as symbols of wealth and prestige. By the mid-1970s however, even Cadillac had been forced to recognise that the writing was on the wall for its traditional, 'gas guzzling' leviathans. And so, in 1975, the first of an entirely new type of Cadillac appeared - the Seville - a compact (by American standards) sedan that eschewed the plush, boulevard ride of the traditional Cadillac in favour of more controlled, European-type handling characteristics. Front-wheel drive arrived on the 3rd Generation Seville in 1986, and then in 1998 the 5th Generation became the first to be built in both left- and right-hand drive configuration. With 300bhp on tap, the top-of-the-range STS and ETC variants became the most powerful front-wheel-drive cars on the market.

    A very well maintained example, this right-hand drive, automatic transmission Cadillac Seville is believed to have been H R Owen's demonstrator. Sold by them in 2001, it was owned for the next 14 years by John Thomas Plant Hire and driven by its MD, John Thomas Bush. The current vendor acquired the Cadillac in 2015, since when it has been used sparingly. Noteworthy features include electric seats, electric windows, CD player, and air conditioning, all in working order. Representing an affordable entry into Cadillac ownership, this well presented Seville STS is offered with MoT to July 2018 and a V5C Registration Certificate.
