1971 Cadillac DeVille Sedan de Ville
1971 Cadillac Sedan de Ville, VIN 683491Q111219, 472 CU. IN., Rochester Quadrajet carburetor, rear-wheel drive 3-speed TH-400 automatic transmission. Sitting in garage for last 12 years. Operated in Virginia from 1971-1992. Only used in five Maine winter seasons (2000-2004).
Complete Vehicle History:

October 18, 1973: Vehicle mileage: 27,830 miles. Sold to Mr. Carl James Vaught of Roanoke, VA.

May 18, 1993: Vehicle mileage: 64,193 miles. Sold to me!

Points of interest:
This car's interior is cosmetically very poor and the body has rust. NOTE: Although the fender skirts are not on the car for the photos, they are both in the trunk. Body rust was an issue in the skirt areas. The frame, on the other hand, is very solid and the car runs extremely well. It flies!
Back to the interior: It has been suffering from severe dryness and cracking since I bought it in 1993. The seats ripped and shredded under normal use. The dashboard has splits and cracked speaker grills (photo).
This vehicle has been parked in garage with very little use for the last 12 years. Last driven on street in June of 2005. This has contributed to:
Brake line to rear leaks on passenger side.
Side mirror adjust cable out of order, various body rust (photos), trunk latch adjustment (not tight when closed), trunk lock covering emblem fell off but still on hand (photo).
Driver’s window scratched along track path.
Back window leaks into trunk shelf above wheel wells.
AC/Climate Control/blower, etc. not turning on. Heat and blower worked when parked 12 years ago. The AC generally worked too, but it needed servicing shortly before parked.
Final Important Note: NO SHIPPING BY SELLER. LOCAL PICK-UP IN PERSON OR BUYER-ARRANGED SHIPPING.
