1971 Cadillac DeVille
1971 Cadillac Coupe DeVille, nmolested survivor, n absolute time capsule. 100% original right down to the paint. I am the second owner, he original owner was a porter at a Cadillac Dealership in Ohio. This car spent its whole life in his garage or inside the service department, nd his attention to the car was impressive. The car looks at drives as new despite its 94,000 miles. The numerous pictures below tell the story.
The car is furnished in its original code 44 Cypress Green paint. The right front fender has been repainted at some point, ut the rest of the car appears to be the original paint with a depth meter showing factory-level thickness. All trim is present and in excellent shape. Chrome is beautiful. All lights work with no broken or hazed lenses. All glass perfect. The code J white vinyl roof is also perfect and amazingly has not been replaced. No signs of any rust or bubbling under the vinyl or below the rear window as was common on these cars (see pics). Wheel covers are virtually perfect. Tires are a year old with less than 1000 miles on them. New door weatherstripping installed this year. All other rubbers are in good condition.
Completely original interior in remarkable condition finished in code 331 Dark Jade Dubonaire Cloth. Driver's seat shows minor sun fading and there are a couple stains I've never tried to remove, ut no rips or tears anywhere. Original carpet perfect with 4 original rubber mats. Dashboard and steering wheel are virtually perfect. Door panels and headliner are literally the nicest original items I've ever seen. Everything works except the clock including the full climate control system (A/C will freeze you out)and original radio (I haven't tried the 8-track). Windows (from all switches), ocks, eat, auges, ourtesy lights, orn, ipers...it's all like new.
Trunk is all original and dry. NO RUST! Original grease paper still under the rug. Original spare tire and tools are there as is all the original cardboard trim.
Original engine and transmission run and shiftlike brand new. I installed new plugs last week and tested compression with them out, orth of 140 on every cylinder. Brand new all aluminum (no plastic tanks) radiator installed last month. New A/C compressor installed in May, till running R12. Both motor mounts are new. Muffler replaced in May.Suspension, teering, rakes all perform as a Cadillac should. Driving this car is like going back in time.
