1968 Cadillac DeVille Convertible

I've never met a person who didn't grin whenever a classic Cadillac convertible glides past. Maybe it's because these luxurious drop tops have been glamorized for half a century by the likes of a Rock Hudson and Frank Sinatra. If you want to look ultra-cool, his 1968 Cadillac DeVille ragtop is the only way to travel, nd with just one fussy owner until 2014, ou know this one is something special.The first thing you see of course is the paint and so this DeVille's opening statement is a good one. With 21 factory colors to choose from, ot all the colors improve upon this classic design, ut certain choices will never go out of style. Grecian White is a laudable choice, s it emphasizes the traditional Cadillac design cues: long, weeping profile, ointed vestigial tailfins, nd crisp detailing. We believe this is the car's original paint, erhaps with a clear coat finish on top, nd it remains in good overall condition today. The black convertible top is a refreshing change from the originally-specified brown and helps to place our '68 a bit apart from the crowd. Of course these cars were bathed in chrome trim and it's all still here and in extremely well-preserved condition, ncluding the pontoon-style front bumper ends, hose condition verifies this car's dry southern heritage. Make no mistake, his is a fantastic survivor that really stands out. Open the door and have a look inside. Along with the white paint, t's likely that the interior is original as well, nce again speaking to the preservation and care that this car has enjoyed over the years. The tan seats were called "Saddle" by GM, nd aside from some minor wrinkles in the leather, t's shockingly well-preserved. The quality materials will be easy to care for and wear well, nd there's just nothing like top-of-the-line '60s style. And enjoying a Cadillac includes creature comforts: A/C, ower steering, ower brakes, ower windows, ilt wheel, M/FM radio, nd the power top are at your fingertips. A wide instrument panel puts all the controls at the driver's fingertips as well as an auxiliary temperature gauge hanging under the dash. The black convertible top is just two years old and drops down in seconds, ust like 1968, nd stows beneath a matching tan boot. Being a Cadillac, here's also a giant trunk which includes a full-sized space tire with jack assembly. The engine is the original, umbers-matching 472 cubic inch V8 that was a nice upgrade over the 429 used in 1967. Rated at 375 HP and producing a towering 525 pounds of torque, his engine was famous for both performance and reliability. Meticulously maintained since new, t handles the Deville's weight and mass without complaint, racefully motivating this classic down the parkway. It's also nicely detailed, ith a satisfying OEM look, ncluding the gold air cleaner and Cadillac blue engine. A TH400 3-speed automatic transmission runs through the gears correctly and without complaint, nd the exhaust system gives it a nice muted hum that sounds suitably powerful without ever getting annoying. The chassis is solid, lthough unrestored and not detailed for show, nd wears 235/75/15 white walls tires that frame those handsome hubcaps nicely. This car was made when America was landing on the moon and the phrase "Standard of the World" really meant something. Call us today!
