I have been a collector for over 1/2 my life and recently purchased this car for my personal collection and reluctant about selling but I am buying two more cars and three cars have to go. Selling 3 cars locally.
This car has a One Owner OPEN title. I used to be a dealer and I leave titles open when I can.

You can see by the photos this car was well taken care of by the previous owner and I haven’t had to do much. I drive it on occasion – more than I should because it’s so nice! Quiet and Smooth.

The cabriolet carriage top is Cloth not vinyl and in exceptional condition. I put a quality sealer *Sunbrella 303 Marine Fabric Guardon all my convertible and cloth tops!

Since purchasing less than 7k miles ago I have done the following:

New old stock Deville hood ornament – it was missing. $85.00

Replaced the trunk pull down motor NEW and it still needs the 3 prong switch – $10.00 at wrecking yards and $45 on ebay just no time to get one. $135.00

Replaced the water pump. Lot harder job than I anticipated… should have paid to have it done!

Replaced the Glove Box latch and needs to be color matched and to have lock with key replaced.
Took it out of a 91 coupe I have.

Completely Detailed and I put the professional protective sealer on the Cloth top. $250.00

Just had the AC changed over properly to 134A and it blows COLD. $185.00

Added Interstate Red Top Mega Battery from 90 Fleetwood Coupe Deville (Mom's Love) $160.00

The Good:

Tires are good all the way around.

Radio and speakers are fine

Windows go up and down … little slow at times but no major problem.

Runs and drives great… smooth .. smooth shifting.. nice comfy ride… levels ok. Nice pick up and passing gear. Lots of pep for a heavy car.

Blue tint sun shield on windshield.

You can eat off the engine. I was so impressed with it when I opened the hood for the first time.

Cloth Top in excellent condition. See photos of both sides rear – there was some type of glue applied but does not detract.

Luggage Rack – factory???

Heated Rear Window

Firemist Paint Excellent – no fading and no clear peeling

3 Color Pin Striping.

Leather is great condition for its age.

Carpet is great.

Both sun visors are like new.

Gas Door Release Works as should

Manual Keyed Trunkworks fine until 3-Prongswitch is replaced for auto pull down - tested the pull down and GOOD (as mentioned it is NOS). Old one is with the car 16603372

Here is the bad or what needs attention


Needs headliner

Gas Gage stays at 6 Gallons. (I get gas before it gets to 180 miles on the Trip meter).

Needs One 3 prong caddy red center piece for the wire hubcap. I purchased one and it came in 4 prong! Meh!

Washer reserve tank needs replaced – crack in bottom.

Turn signal switch needs replacing – doesn’t disengage on its own.

Two or three small tears in Leather seats.


Slight Dent Passenger side front bumper. Hardly noticeable but need to mention

Scratch and touch up paint on small scratch area on trunk.

Scratch on passenger door and quarter panel.

As mentioned needs trunk pull down switch.

Slight crack in top of front license plate bracket.

This great example of a classic collector Coupe Deville is being offered locally and I reserve the right to cancel bidding at any time unless the Buy it Now option is used. I will honor the Buy it Now or contact me to discuss options.

Just remembered I forgot to take photos of the trunk area… very clean like the interior.


The Cadillac Coupe de Ville and Sedan de Ville shared a distinctive new interior and exterior appearance as well as a more spacious passenger compartment and increased trunk capacity for 1989. The overall length of the coupe increased 5.8 in. to 202.5 in. while that of the sedan moved up 8.8 in. to 205.2 in. The sedan's wheelbase was also expanded 3.0 in. to 113.8 in. The front overhang of both models increased 2.4 in. to 44.1 in. Their rear overhang was increased 3.4 in. to 47.2 in. New front sheet metal, grille quarter panels and hood were used. A new fascia was used to improve air flow. Both the front and rear bumpers made greater use of chrome and were fitted with an accent-colored rub strip. Bright headlight bezels and cornering lights were also featured along with a rear-mounted power antenna. At the rear a new deck lid, tail lamp and fascia were adopted. Highlighting the 1989 model's profile were new rear wheel "eyebrow" openings and lower body side color accent moldings. The sedan, in addition to having new rear doors had an integrated center high-mounted stop light. If the sedan was ordered with the optional full padded vinyl roof, an electro-luminescent wreath and crest sail ornament was installed.
Beginning with a new seat design with a Primavera cloth trim, numerous interior changes and revisions accompanied the 1989 de Ville's larger and restyled exterior. Many changes were noticeable in the front seat. These consisted of wider headrests, a storage-type center armrest with a flip-open lid and a cup holder option, and manual driver and passenger seat recliners. The sedan's rear compartment had raised rack bolsters with integral headrests, increased lower cushion length for improved thigh support and a reduced corner radius for fuller seat appearance and improved passenger comfort. Three-point shoulder belts were installed along with a raised rear package shelf/storage compartment. The sedan's longer wheelbase provided additional interior space. Rear leg room was increased 3.0 in. to 43.3 in. Knee clearance increased 3.1 in. to 6.1 in. Trunk capacity was increased from 16.1 cu. ft. to 18.4 cu. ft. on the sedan and 18.1 cu. ft. on the coupe. The jack was relocated to a position under the trunk floor which now had a flat surface area. A new trunk trim, Tyger, replaced the Teton material used in 1988. A "Tiffany" carpeting was used for the trunk.
The de Ville models now had new front and rear reversible and washable floor mats with a new retention device. A driver side express-down window was standard as were electrically operated outside car-colored mirrors, front license plate mounting provisions and an AM/FM stereo signal seeking radio with scanner, digital display, cassette player/ five-band graphic equalizer and extended range front speakers. A new Delco/Bose II Symphony sound system was optional as was a digital compact disc player integrated with the Bose II radio. Other new options included an electrochromic automatic day/night rearview mirror with three-position sensitivity switch and a heated windshield. Fifteen inch wheels with Michelin P205/70R15 tires-were standard. Aluminum touring wheels were now available as an option.
