Purchased only through authorized Cadillac dealers, the Hess and Eisenhardt Cadillac Coupe DeVille convertible was called the Le Cabriolet. This was an approved by Cadillac conversion to convertible. It was warrantied by Cadillac. It was more expensive than a new Roll Royce at the time. Around 300 is all that were ever made by most estimates. Safe to assume less than half perhaps still exist.If you are tired of the factory '84 and '85 Eldorado ASC convertible's wheezing and coughing HT4100 that can't pull itself up a hill (of which I've owned a 1985 Eldorado Birraritz Convertible & can attest to) then this gasoline 425 cu in cast iron V8 is the answer. This rear wheel drive Cadillac pulls itself along with effortless ease, like a good old Cadillac is expected to do. It also offers better handling through a more balanced front to rear weight bias than its later Eldorado brethren. Hess and Eisenhardt did a quality conversion and stiffened up the chassis as well. Hard to say whether the Hess or ASC version is better as I have had both examples.This Le Cab is a quality driver and not a show car. It has excellent bones and runs and drives great!
