As a Newbie im completely oblivious to the correctness of this car
Not that I can afford, it but what is not right about this car ?
purely out of interest and educating myself.
It is also jaw droppingly beautiful to the uneducated.
1. The wheels are incorrect. The 1958 Eldorado Seville had Sabre wheels, also known as Turbine wheels. The tires are also obviously incorrect but tires are a preference thing and easily changed.
2. The air cleaner is incorrect. 1958 Sevilles had a large round dual snorkel gold air cleaner and 3 x 2 barrel Rochester carbs. The dual four setup and batwing air cleaner are correct for the 1957 Eldorado Seville.
3. The power steering pump and reservoir are not original.
4. The windshield wiper motor has been changed from the vacuum setup to an electric motor.
5. The oil filter housing should be black, not blue.
6. The A/C compressor does not appear to be original.
7. The interior upholstery and carpet is way off the mark. The Eldorado Seville had either full leather or combination leather/cloth options but none of them were in this pattern. This car used to have a Black-Silver Crest Cloth and Silver Metallic Leather interior.
8. The stainless trim on the C-pillar is from a Coupe de Ville. Eldorado Seville's did not have this trim piece on the C-pillar.
9. This car used to be Olympic White with a white Vicodec top so the body color is not original either.
These are the things I can see, there are probably more... but having said all of that, the 1958 Eldorado Seville is an exceedingly rare car. Only 855 were made and that makes it the rarest Eldorado coupe of all time. There are probably no more than 300 left worldwide so at the end of the day, someone has saved another example of this seldom seen car. They are always worth more restored to original spec but someone can always take this car back there if they want to.
