1976-1979 Cadillac Seville Milan Roadster

There was a brief period when domestic car makers weren't building ragtops and aftermarket convertible conversions filled the gap.

This conversion of a 4 door Cadillac Seville was done with a kit sold by Milan Coach Builders of California for $1495. The Milan competed against the Mercedes SL and suffered in comparison. The proportions are not quite right. The belt-line is high and the wheelbase is short. It would look better with longer doors as a 2+2. But from some angles the Milan is almost handsome.

Only a hundred or so Milans were built. This one was parked in Sausalito CA.
