1960 Eldorado Seville - Special Order red leather.
« on: January 08, 2018, 08:35:40 AM »
I could not find any reference to red leather interior selection in a 1960 Eldorado Seville. Given the patina of the interior and color or trunk liner I'd say SO is a safe bet. Nice looking 1960.

Eric,

My 60 Seville has a red and white two tone leather interior, Cardiff and Florentine.

Is the single color the SO aspect of this car? Or is it all leather?

Guys,

All white, metallic beige, or red & white were the only all leather Seville interior offerings. All red leather is the  SO.

 If had any cajones I would buy this and now and hopefully sell three of mine to pay for it, and then I would also have some room in the garage .  I wonder why it isn't already gone ?    :-\

Need to see the car in person to verify condition. Looks great in pictures but it's well known how unreliable that can be. If it were a bit closer, I'd be temped to have a looksee myself.

I like the color combo and especially that it was ordered without the roof. Icing on the cake (for me) would also include elimination of 6 pack carb and Air Suspension. I have always wondered if these either or both of these items were SO deleted on any 59/60 ELS/EBZ...

Having a similar car, I'd love to see it bring big bucks but I agree with Mr. Refakis.  It's priced pretty high for the condition.

Spoke with the seller. He claims paint all original and previous owner had car since '68...interesting.

He sent me some more pictures.

I'm partial to '59 but this is a '60 would seriously consider.
