    1980 Seville, is this the right forum?

    Is this the best forum for parts and info for a 1980 Seville?

    I just got one, for free.
    It has 86k on the clock and 20k on the engine.
    It has been in a storage since 1988
    It runs and drives great and is in great shape.

    I do need a few parts however, and GM dosent seem to sell parts for this car anymore.

    I need a Cruise control lever, right rear window regulator ( I guess it uses a belt and its broken?), rear air shocks, and a stereo

    Any info or leads on these parts would be great.

    Thanks,

    Yup, this is the right forum - Welcome!

    Your best bet is look around at used auto parts dealers (Junkyards). Some specialize in Cadillac parts. That is especially true about the cruise lever and a factory stereo. IIRC, window regulators use a perforated nylon belt. That might be tougher to find.

    Rear air shocks should be available from any parts store (but they won't be AC Delco). They might need to be adapted for the Caddy air lines.

    For original parts also try:

    http://gmpartsdirect.com
    http://rockauto.com

    and few others (which I don't recall now). Others will probably chime in with more ideas.

    Yeah tell us about your '80, first year for that controverisal generation. What colors, options etc etc, We love hearing about members cars! Pics are great too!

    I really like the 1980 Sevilles. I've always liked that generation, plus in '80, they either had the 368 or the Olds 350 optional, the Diesel 350, sadly, was standard.
