In the late 1970s, the Pompano Beach, Florida-based coachbuilders at Grandeur Motor Car Company decided to try their hand at converting the Cadillac Seville sedan into an ultra-luxurious two-door cruiser. The result was the odd-looking and somewhat disproportionate Cadillac Seville Opera Coupe – one example of which was recently listed for sale on Facebook Marketplace.
The Seville Opera Coupe was essentially a two-door version of the Seville with an elongated hood. Grandeur Motor Car Company also added some other small touches to complete the car’s neo-classic look, such as fake spare tire wire wheel covers and a small portal window in the rear section of the vinyl-covered cabin roof.
The Cadillac Seville Opera Coupe listed for sale on Facebook Marketplace is a 1979 model year example with 154,093 miles on the odometer. That’s a ton of miles for a luxury cruiser like this, but surprisingly, it seems to be in decent shape still. There aren’t any dents or dings that we can spot on the exterior and the interior upholstery looks as though it’s in great shape. Still, a professional detail job would go a long way toward making this oddball Cadillac look showroom new again.
The seller is asking just $5,000 for this strange coachbuilt Caddy. We think that’s a pretty good deal considering this car’s obscurity and condition, but we also get the feeling that not many people want to see walk out and see a Cadillac Seville Opera Coupe sitting in their driveway every day. Those who count themselves among the select few who would want to own such a whacky looking vehicle can check out the listing at this link for some more information and photos.
