I'm not big on the later 70's ones but I definitely respect it for what it is; 1978 is the last of the monsters. Personally, I think 1971-1972 is the last year I'd ever really pursue, but an exception could definitely be made for a machine as pristine as this one. Very nice! :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

Beautiful paint scheme and interior. Wow, only 5600 miles. That's amazing. I must say I never liked those hubcaps though. :yuck:

+1 - I have always hated body colored painted wheels of any sort...Cadillac and Mercedes were the worst offenders of this.

Beautiful car though. My freind had a '76 convertible with the F.I. 500 in it. It was so odd to punch it and watch the hood rise like the bow of a boat coming up on plane...then when it was up to speed it leveled off. Maybe this is why they were called 'boats'?

Factory CB radios were popular among the big 3 in the late 70s early 80's. They were options on my Delta 88 and 98. My ex girlfriend's grandfather also had it in his '84 Town Car.

When I was kid, a neighbor had a yellow mid-'70s Eldorado that I rode in a few times. It was huge. Humongous. Ginormous. I still have vivid memories of my parents shopping for their Seville in late '78. At Ronald Moran Cadillac (now Penske) in Torrance, CA, there was a white Gucci Seville in the middle of the showroom. They also had both '78 and downsized '79 Eldorados in the showroom, and the change in size was striking. And today, the '79 to '85 E-bodies are considered large.

I hate those Coachcraft Sevilles...they look so goofy. But yes, Biarritz Eldorados are awesome looking machines...I have a '78 in GTA San Andreas right now. You can see some bad 70s build quality in those photos though.

I've always really liked the lines on the '75-78s, tho the colors on this one are a big turn-off.

Also generally like the shortened Seville roadsters, but only if the top is down. As soon as it's put up, the car looks homemade. 1900 built; how come I've still not seen one yet? No big loss, but it makes me wonder about the number...

The '76-79 production Sevilles have great lines, also- they were world's more refined than the fussiness of mercedes of the day.
