1967 Cadillac DeVille
Are you looking for an exceptionally distinctive weekend convertible? Do you want something unique, un, nd eye-catching? Something that commands attention and is sure to start a conversation wherever you go? If so, hen look no further than this matchless beauty.
As you grip the pencil thin steering wheel and turn over the factory 7 liter/429 cubic inch V8, t is as if you instantly are transported to another decade. When you unlatch the white convertible top--effortlessly holding one finger on the button to have it automatically retract--you return to what is indisputably one of the greatest eras of American history. Rolling down all four of the working power windows and imagining the Beatles playing from the factory AM/FM stereo completes the journey back in time. Slip the automatic transmission in gear and you are off, ruising down the back country roads in your very own land yacht, he wind tousling your hair. It is impossible to not be amazed by how many people you can squeeze into the enormous factory bench seats finished in white leather. Six seatbelts have been added to ensure none of your exuberant and elated passengers accidentally bounces out.
What an amazing automobile for you to capture as we roll into the first part of convertible season! You have found a very clean, river quality 1967 Cadillac Deville Convertible. As you likely know, his is one of the last years of the very desirable stacked headlights. A full repaint in the factory Flamenco Red color finished with a satin clear coat applied at the same time was done approximately two years ago. All the trim is intact and show the appropriate amount of wear/pitting to indicate that is likely original to the car. It has been lowered a couple inches and includes rear airbags. This allows you to adjust the ride height on the rear axle by very simply adding or removing air via the readily accessible Schrader valves located on the rear cross-member just behind the rear bumper. The satin finish on the fresh paint matches the age on the trim pieces just perfectly. The slightly lower stance and current steel wheel/wide white wall tire combo round out this package. If you are looking for a car that will fly under the radar and go unnoticed, hen this isn't your ride. If you are looking for something in which you can confidently and safely drive your friends and family--and put smiles on the faces of everyone you pass--then this is the car for you. One of the best things about this car is that it isn't perfect, nd rather than try to fix that by replacing an infinite number of pieces of chrome/trim pieces, tc. the current style celebrates it.
This is a remarkably rust-free example. It is a 50-year-old car with nothing to apologize for. The body panels are clean and straight. The paint sticks well with no bubbling or cancer, nd the underside doesn't have any significant spots or obvious structural issues. However, here is one spot about the size of a quarter in the floor board behind the driver's seat, ut aside from that, here aren't any glaring problems with the structure of the car or suspension components.
The car has been evaluated mechanically. The motor runs strong, as been recently tuned up, nd has had fluids changed. A new mechanical fuel pump was recently put on and the transmission rebuilt. The transmission shifts effortlessly through all gears. There is no clunking, rinding, lipping, r searching for the right gear. There are no major leaks from the drive line. The drum brakes work just as well as they did in 1967. They will rein the big beast in from 80+ MPH interstate speeds with no issues and stop true and straight every time. Headlights, linkers, nd taillights work consistently and without fail, nd most all of the interior trim and courtesy lights function as well. The top works without help, s do all four power windows. The front vent windows work with minimal help. Rubber trim and weather stripping appears to be original and is fairly deteriorated in places. I never drive the car in the rain or store it outdoors, o it wasn't of great concern to me. All components of the HVAC and cruise control system seem to be intact, ut neither are currently operating. Because I purchased the car with both systems in their current state and drove it pretty much exclusively on clear days with nice temperatures, never explored getting them fixed.
The interior has a classic appearance. It appears to be the original factory seats with one re-dye by a previous owner. There is some minor splitting at the seams of front seat but overall is in very good shape. The car has fresh carpet in it, nd with the exception of a couple of rear courtesy lights in the back seat, ll the trim seems to be intact and the dash in good shape. The steering wheel is in good shape with some minor splitting that candidly isn't bad enough to justify restoring. I had six seatbelts installed with aircraft style latches, hich are true to the style of that period. They were installed at my mechanic's shop with all the appropriate hardware anchoring them to the car. The factory canvas tonneau cover for the retracted convertible top is intact and in good shape with one minor tear on the front right corner.
This is a no headaches, tart-every-time car. I keep it stored inside out of the elements with the battery disconnected. I connect the single bolt on the negative terminal of the battery, et in the driver's seat, nd pump the gas a couple times, nd voila--she starts up. Every time. Unless I have no other option, only run high octane gas from the 100% gas station a couple miles away from my house. For best results, typically add an octane booster to it, oo. She runs superbly and will idle just fine or accelerate to interstate speeds without a problem.
