My argyle blue Seville is of a rare breed because only 855 were ever made. Mine was built on Nov. 4th 1957 and originally shipped to Switzerland. It was built for export and so its a little bit different than most other 1958 Eldorados. For example there are additional direction lights under the dual headlights. The complete lighting system is different and the car has kilometers per hour on the speedometer instead the m.p.h. - and the odometer counts kilometers too. The compression ratio was reduced to 8.6:1 and the rear axle ratio is 3,07:1 which differs from the domestic U.S. models. There also came a french owners manual with the car which was used for Canadian exports too.
The Seville was built with no additional options like the air suspension or the aircondition. Color code of the car is 94 (Argyle Blue - a color exclusive for the Eldorado line ) with white top.
In Switzerland the car was sold by G.M. in Zurich to a wealthy bank director with the name Misteli Joseph - born 1895... So he was 63 when he purchased it in 1958. In 1971 the Eldo was sold to Mr. Otto Waelchli who owned it until 2000. He said that it had 73k Kilometers on the odometer when he bought it. Now it has 105.000 kilometers on the clock. He didn't drive the car very often as he also owns a 1954 Cadillac Series 75 that he still uses as the family car... He never drove it in rain or winter so its still in very good condition and has no rust at all.
