The Car History of Alex Beloff III

SEVILLE ELEGANTE –  A TWIN AND DONOR CAR

IT IS IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THAT THE 1978 SEVILLE ELEGANTE COMES WITH VERY IMPRESSIVE FACTORY BUCKET SEATS AND LUXURY TRIMMED CONSOLE.  BACK IN CALIFORNIA WHEN I ACQUIRED MY 1978 SEVILLE #133 FROM WAYNE STEAD CADILLAC AS A TRADE IN, I THOUGHT HOW COOL IT WOULD BE TO SOMEDAY HAVE TWO MORE IDENTICAL BUCKET SEATS IN THE BACK.  THEN I WOULD HAVE FOUR BUCKET SEATS AND TWO CONSOLES REMINISCENT OF THE CHRYSLER 1960 300 F.  EVIDENTLY IT WASN’T A BAD IDEA BECAUSE NOW PORCHE HAS FOUR BUCKET SEATS AND FULL LENGTH CONSOLE IN A FOUR DOOR FOR $150,000.

THE TRANSPORT DRIVER WHO FREQUENTS LEXUS OF MEMPHIS SAW MY ELEGANTE.  HE SAID, I’VE GOT A TWIN TO THAT CAR WITHOUT THE WIRE WHEELS.  SAME COLOR INSIDE AND OUT.  IT’S IN POOR SHAPE BUT IT IS COMPLETE AND NOT BEAT UP.  YOU CAN HAVE IT FOR A GRAND.  I SAID, AGREED.   ON THE NEXT LAP, HE PUT IT ON HIS TRANSPORT CARRIER AND DELIVERED IT TO MY HOUSE.  WHAT A THRILL.  SOMEDAY I’LL HAVE A FOUR BUCKET SEAT ELEGANTE AND A PARTS CAR.

WHEN I WAS MOVING TO GRAPEVINE TEXAS,  I WAS ABLE TO SHIP BOTH CARS TO MY CONNIE’S OFFICE IN DALLAS AT NORTH TEXAS LUBRICANTS.  WE WILL ALWAYS BE GRATEFUL FOR THE FRIENDSHIP OF THE GUYS AT NTL AND THEIR HOT ROD SHOP: WILEY ALEXANDER, SHANNON TIGUE AND DICK DEMETS AS WELL AS JAY NORDSTROM.   ALSO PICTURED IS RICHARD RAWLINGS (GAS MONKEY) WITH JAY AT THE HOT ROD SHOP.  THESE GUYS KNOW CARS LIKE ALEX DOES AND WE TRULY THANK THEM FOR THIS KNOWLEDGE AND ASSISTANCE!

THIS TWIN ELEGANTE RECEIVED THE EXTENSIVE BELOFF TOUCH TOO.   I RAN AN AD AND SOLD BOTH ELEGANTE CARS TO A FINE GENTLEMAN IN ARLINGTON TEXAS WHO TRULY APPRECIATED THE STYLE AND FEATURES OF THE ELEGANTE.
