Australia's only 58' Seville?
« on: January 29, 2016, 12:47:02 PM »
Hello everyone,

I have just posted my application to join the CLC so I will shortly be a member of the club! I'm looking forward to meeting other members and getting to club events when I can. I can't do the Biennial in Wangaratta this year but I will be at other events and meetings when I can make them. I used to be a member of the Buick Car Club of Australia but I have been out of the game for years. It's great to be a classic car owner again!

After years of dreaming about owning a Cadillac, I finally took the plunge and bought a 1958 Cadillac Eldorado Seville. My car was imported by Jeff Randall in WA back in 2007 and he sold it on to Clive Hughes in SA in 2014. I bought it off Clive in December 2015 and the car now lives in Sydney.

I have never seen another 1958 Eldorado Seville in Australia so I think my car is the only one. I wouldn't be surprised given that only 855 were made and that an estimated 300 survive worldwide. I haven't seen the member directory yet but Claudia Holding tells me that there are two listings for 1958 Eldorado Seville's in it. However, I think they might both be this same car as one of them is in WA and the other in SA. I think it's simply the case that neither Jeff or Clive have informed the club that they have sold up although today I have discovered that there may be another one in WA. I will find out more later.

I will hold off posting any pictures for now as I am currently detailing and servicing the car. Once I'm done, I will post something in the 'Show Off Your Pride and Joy' forum. For now, I just wanted to say g'day and that I'm looking forward to meeting folks at club meetings and events, as well as seeing your beautiful cars!

Cheers,

Glen Camenzuli

You only need two tools in life - WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the Duct Tape.

Thanks Peter.

There will definitely be photos in time. She's not a perfect car or trailer queen but she's pretty damn good for her age. Both previous owners described the car as mint.... I think they both need to go back to school!!
