I work for a family that is interested in donating a 1976 Seville to a museum where it would be displayed to the public. Does anyone here know of any institution or collector that would be interested in displaying this model/year Cadillac? I am told it is in top condition, but I have not seen the car yet. Any information would be very much appreciated.

Here come the comedians...


Is there something unique about this one? Anniversary edition. Mary Kay? In one sense it seems a shame to take a nice car off the road.

I seriously doubt there is anything unique about the car. I also seriously doubt that it is in "mint" condition as they claim it is. However, I've been tasked with figuring out if there is a place for it somewhere, and in an effort to cover my rear, I am more than willing to host the comedians if it supports an answer of, "This car is not museum-worthy."

If they are looking for a tax break, there are many non-profit orgs that would appreciate a donation like this.

Not sure which museum would display a 76 seville. Nothing real special about the model, year, mileage, equipment, or the amount they built. Unless its an ultra rare (1 of 100-300) maybe its worth it, otherwise its pretty much like any other 30 year old car. Tons of smog equipment, no power, ugly interiors, glad i wasn't around for the 70's.

How about contacting some children's museums!! You are right, it is not a rare car by any means. If the museum could figure out how to prevent the door from slamming on kids' fingers, it could be an interesting toy.

There is a children's museum in Corpus Christi.

Long shot--one of the children's hospitals. St. Jude's in Memphis. Or one of the Shriner hospitals. The corporate Shriners' office used to be in Tampa.

What I did was to donate it to the Auto Technology Program at the local community college. You get the full Kelly Blue Book deduction and help out the local college.

What area of the country does the car reside, that would help a bit!

Otherwise I have a non-profit account setup for my high school senior class for reunions and such that you could donate it to! :)

If it turns out to really be a low mile mint condition car try Volo Auto Museum. They display everything and sell also.
