1968 Cadillac DeVille Convertible
Regal, powerful, and quite luxurious, this 1968 Cadillac DeVille is a highly correct classic that defined what a cool cruising convertible is.
This car is iconic. When we close our eyes, and think of a classic Caddy, this is what comes to mind. It's because the designers were trying their hardest for a bold design. That's why not only does the hood have a crisp point leading the way, but so do the fenders. This also helps create that impossibly long profile that shows these DeVilles own the road. In the rear, Cadillac kept the tailfin era alive by making it into a well-integrated sporty rear overhang. And of course, there's the bright work. The wraparound front bumper, extra-wide grille, form-fitting rear bumper, and all that trim make this bright with class. This one even gets the detail correct with everything from wire wheel covers to rear fender skirts. All wrapped in its factory-correct San Mateo Red a sophisticated color that was only available for a few years.
If you like the way the white convertible top looks against the red, then you love the combo even more with the roof town. The white interior looks to be quite original and quite well-preserved. With the red returning on the dash, carpeting, and even the seat belts, this looks like a fantastically coordinated total package. As a true luxury ride, everyone gets plenty of room on the wide button-top seats. But any time you want an individual level of comfort, the fold down armrest reminds you the driver is king. In fact, the dash is also laid out just for you. The wood grain insert has all your essential controls, including the factory AM/FM radio that's still cranking out tunes. This Caddy is also loaded with a power seat, power locks, and a tilt wheel. But the features you're going to like the most are the power windows and power convertible top. Together, they mean you never have to leave the driver's seat to go from enclosed luxury to a wind-in-your-hair experience. And because the factory air conditioning is blowing cold, you can enjoy this drop top experience long into the summer season.
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, and it's believed that this is the original motor still under the hood. It has a highly original presentation and even topped with a Rochester four-barrel carburetor. That's the secret to this convertible's everlasting appeal. It utilizes its whooping torque to easily and confidently get you off the line. Plus, the big V8 makes sure you've always got power in reserve, even at highway speeds. Add in power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, power brakes, and Cadillac's legendary ride, and you know this is how you want a classic cruiser to be.
Complete with owner's manual, this is an exceptionally original presentation even the spare tire and jack are correct! So when an affordable and iconic drop top like this is up for grabs, you know this is a deal that will be moving soon. Call now!
