1968 Cadillac DeVille Convertible
This restored 1968 Cadillac DeVille Convertible is upgraded where you want it (like the shining paint and A/C interior) while still remaining vintage in the right places (like the tailfins and original big V8.) So this is the icon that offers everything you want in a show-worthy classic, and it's ready to cruise the boulevard right now.
You know the frame-off restoration was a labor of love from the moment you spot the paint. Black Cherry is a terrific modern hue that perfectly blends a sophisticated dark presence with just the right tone of red excitement. And the level of clearcoat shine it radiates tells you there was a nice investment here. So it's exactly how you want a sunshine-friendly droptop to look. In fact, the only items that can rival the clearcoat for shine are the acres of brightwork. Having this complete chrome package is the true sign of a cut-above Cadillac. The crisp points in everything from the grille, to the hint of tailfin in the rear, gives this convertible a superior level of elegance. Of course, the effect would not be the same if there was not special attention paid to making sure all the sheetmetal is just as crisp and refined. And you'll even love digging into the details, like the bright wire wheel covers, rear fender skirts, and how the doors close with authority it all tells you someone cared about the restoration.
If you love the way the crisp tan roof looks against the paint, then you're going to love it even more with the roof down. That's because the same saddle-colored appeal is seen throughout the inside. This interior was restored with period-correct appearance, and that means a beautiful button-top presentation on the seats and the matching door panels. Plus, with the dash, carpeting, steering wheel, trunk, and even the convertible boot cover all coordinating nicely, this is a great total uniform package. While there is plenty of room for family and friends, this Caddy is all about the driver. That's why you have a power seat, fold-down arm rest, and a dash designed around you. A vintage machine like this is built for cruising, and so it has been subtly updated to make sure you have all the best tunes. That's why the retro-style AM/FM/cassette stereo is also linked to a CD changer and satellite radio. But your favorite features will likely be the power windows and power convertible top. After all, they mean you never have to leave the driver's seat to go from enclosed luxury to a wind-in-your hair experience. And since the air conditioning is blowing cold with modern R134a, you can stay cool with the top down long into the summer season.
Another great sign of a thoughtful restoration is how tidy it is under the hood. And it's tough to look this good when the whole engine bay is filled. You're looking at a huge 472 cubic-inch V8 that's original to the car. With a Weber four-barrel carburetor on top, this offers huge horsepower and torque. But while the figures are at muscle car levels, this one never loses its luxury composure. Instead, it utilizes its massive torque to easily and confidently get you off the line. Plus, the big V8 makes sure you've always got power in reserve, even at highway speeds. Add in power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, power brakes, and Cadillac's legendary ride, and this is the ideal classic cruiser.
The sale comes complete owner's manual, build receipts, and a photo book detailing how thorough the restoration was. This is the classic Caddy convertible that leaves you wanting for nothing, and so if you want the best in vintage motoring, call today!
