I had a new air conditioner put in it when it came to California. I also put in a new headliner and the installer of the headliner slightly cracked the windshield around the rear view mirror during this process. I haven’t replaced the windshield or the tires since I got the car and have barely driven it. But I have had it serviced in order to pass the smog inspection tests here in California. My father owned 2 of these Sevilles and had them painted the exact same color. His first was a 1981 and my neighbor bought it from me and then sold it on eBay a year or so ago for around $2500 as it was not in as good of condition as this one. The reason I am going down memory lane is that my father swapped some of his favorite parts from the 1981 to the 1985. As you see there is the flying lady hood ornament he was thrilled to put on and this changed the grille requirements. So … on this 85 there is an 81 hood grill top piece without the attaching long silver piece that divides the hood in half like on the 81’s. I have this 1981 part in the trunk picture that I had intended to have installed when I got the hood ornament removed … it is included in this auction. Also you will see that he has the 1981 side mirror that has the thermometer on it as well as the 1981 wheels. At one point he had a phone and you can see the antennae centered on the back windshield. The hood and trunk do not stay up when you open them and you have to hold them. Other than that I don’t know of additional issues other than it needs a good hand wash.
