Custom Thing: 1982 Cadillac Seville

The controversial 1981-85 Cadillac Seville was one of legendary GM designer Bill Mitchell’s last designs. The bustle-back rear styling made waves when introduced, but it was the truly horrendous lineup of engines that did the car in. This generation of Seville had three of the most horrendous and half baked engines ever to come out of General Motors: the 350 converted diesel, the displacement on demand V8-6-4, and 4.1 4100 V8. Anyway, today’s bustleback Seville has had 4-inches chopped from the top and a custom front installed…and I sorta like it. Find this 1982 Cadillac Seville offered for $18,500 in Largo, FL via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
