1966 Cadillac DeVille

Its rare and wonderful to find a car that was treated with special care its entire life. We can all imagine the pride of the original owner as he pulled away from the dealership in a car that he thought so highly of that it was his "baby" from day one. This 1966 Cadillac Coupe de Ville is just such a car. And having owned and driven it, I can fully understand what generated that sense of stewardship. We all love these cars today for their beauty and style and what they represent of a bygone era, but to have had the foresight to care so deeply for a vehicle when it was simply a new car is remarkable. Its just such a sentiment that creates a truly collectible gem.
This particular Cadillac Coupe de Ville comes with the original Owner's Manual, Warranty Booklet and the Protect-O-Plate. The Cadillac Owner Identification page shows the delivery date as 7/19/66 by Mell A Gooch Inc. of Utica, NY. Also included are maintenance records stretching back to July of 1966, showing a gradual progression of mileage that confirms thenear 45,000 appearing on the odometer to be true and correct. This is an excellent example of an unrestored Cadillac that has withstood the test of time and has remained in essentially the same exceptional condition for decades. The original owner sold his "baby" on in 1985 and it has been treated with similar care up to the present day.
This Cadillac runs and drives wonderfully, and with the recently fitted period-correct triple stripe whitewall tires from Diamond Back Classic Radials, it floats at highway speeds as if we were back in July of 1966. The power seats make it easy to get into the perfect driving position and the power windows allow for plenty of the warm summer breezes to make their way into the cabin. Other options include an AM/FM radio, power antenna,power trunk and twilight sentinel. The 429 cubic inch V8 starts readily and is quiet and smooth, just as Cadillac engineers intended. The Cadillac is ready to driven and enjoyed, and I can envision it being judged very favorably as well.
Little rust on the back quarter panels under the tires. Bag it or drive like it is. Great car.
