'Compact' Caddy for well under $10k

Dubbed "Cadillac’s first small car", the Seville was introduced to American consumers in 1975 in an attempt to challenge luxury imports from BMW and Mercedes. The fourth generation was offered from 1992 and received GM’s new, high-tech Northstar V8 in 1993.

In Seville Touring Sedan (STS) form, 220kw was delivered to the front wheels by the aluminium quad-cam powerplant. Despite being referred to as a small car, its 2800mm wheelbase is comparable to our own VQ Statesman.

Despite a high retail price (equivalent to $101,000 in 2021 Aussie money), the fourth-gen STS was well-received, earning Motor Trend magazine’s Car of the Year upon release.

According to the description, this 1993 STS has undergone a full engine rebuild, and was converted shortly after being imported to Australia. While the seller mentions minor hail damage, the leather and woodgrain-clad interior seems to present well with just 112,000 miles recorded.

Considering the current asking prices of V8-powered Australian motoring, this STS is a reasonable (and arguably rarer) prospect at $7500.
