1968 Cadillac DeVille Convertible
If you're going to wear big wheels, you need a big attitude, and the combination on this super smooth 1968 Cadillac DeVille convertible looks incredible. So you know its cool factor is the only thing that outweighs this long, low classic droptop.
All eighteen feet of this super trick Cadillac have been expertly smoothed and beautifully finished to glow like a gem in the sunlight. In fact, this special color is called Kashmir Ivory, and it earns this double-premium name with the time it took to prep the sheetmetal and the depth of this professional paintwork. It gives this the ideal setup where you could see how the designers made this Caddy a mix of sharp creases and butter-smooth curves. And there's a sleekness to this one thanks to flowing style lines that include the rear fender skirts. These DeVilles had a memorable presence because it comes from the era where the longest car ruled the road. GM's designers made this top-of-the-line brand stretch for every inch. That's why you have pontoon-style front fenders with stacked headlights on top, and in the back, there's the hint of tailfin that extends beyond the bumper. And on a classic Caddy like this, the chrome is a key element. So you can see there was not only an investment in keeping the factory pieces mirror-like, but this one also shines even brighter today with those pricey 22-inch Asanti wheels.
Inside is more great custom work. The black leather seats have custom piping that coordinates with the newer tan folding roof. And because this is a premium Cadillac you can open this one up to the world with just the touch of a button. And while this big convertible has seating for six, all you need to do is fold down the center armrest for individual comfort. The front bench even power adjusts to your ideal position. And this is absolutely a driver's car with the wheel, gauges, and essential controls all placed right in front of you. Plus, this classic has plenty of great features like air conditioning, power windows, power locks, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo in a custom center console.
Even with all these great features, there is one BIG reason you really want the 1968 model. This was the first year for the big 472 cubic-inch engine, so it's great to have an era-correct motor under hood. It gets even better with the upgraded Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor on top. Big torque moves all this sheetmetal with ease, especially when paired with the strong and smooth TH400 three-speed automatic transmission. It's finished off with a dual exhaust system that gives a hint at this Caddy's power, but it never loses its luxurious composure. As expected from a Cadillac, the ride has an unparalleled smoothness that soaks up bumps like a hovercraft. As you're enjoying the road trip, the power steering, power brakes, and modern low-profile tires are there to keep you in control.
This is an absolutely beautiful custom classic offered for quite a nice price. So don't let this exceptional deal slip away. Call today!!!
