Description
 
As with all GM full-size lines, the De Ville was redesigned for 1971. The new GM full-size bodies, at 64.3 inches front shoulder room (62.1 inches on Cadillac) and 63.4 inches rear shoulder room (64.0 inches on Cadillac) set a record for interior width that would not be matched by any car until the full-size GM rear-wheel-drive models of the early to mid-1990s. Pairs of individually housed squarish headlamps were set wider apart. The V-shaped grille had an eggcrate style insert and was protected by massive vertical guards framing a rectangular license plate indentation. A wide hood with full-length windsplints, a prominent center crease and hidden windshield wipers was seen. A Cadillac crest decorated the nose and new indicator lamps appeared atop each front fender. A horizontal beltline molding ran from behind the front wheel housing, almost to the rear stopping where an elliptical bulge in the body came to a point and where thin rectangular side markers were placed above and below the chrome strip. The rear wheel openings were again housed in fender skirts. Tail lamps were of the same type as before but were no longer divided by a chrome bar. Long horizontal back-up lamps were set in the bumper, on either side of a deeply recessed license plate housing. De Villes were set apart visually by thin bright metal rocker panel steps and signature script on the front fenders bearing the series name. The bottoms of the rear fenders were decorated with a bright metal beauty panel that was wider than the rocker panel strips and blended into the molding running along the bottom of the fender skirt. The standard engine remained the 472, still rated at 375 SAE gross horsepower and 365 lb·ft (495 N·m) of torque. New energy absorbing bumpers were seen on all GM cars in 1973 and it brought styling refinements to De Ville. Grilles were widened and had an intricate eggcrate design. Larger vertical rectangles housed the parking lamps between wide spaced headlamps which had square bezels but round lenses. Bumpers ran fully across the front and wrapped around each end. Vertical guards were spaced much further apart at a point outboard of the grille. The rear end had a bumper with a flatter upper section housing an angled license plate recess. Border outline moldings vertically "veed" paralleled the fender edge shape at the rear bodysides. Single horizontally mounted rectangular rear side marker lamps were placed over and under the rear tip of the thin beltline trim. Cadillac script was seen on the front fender sides below the belt molding behind the wheel opening. This was the final year for hardtop Coupe de Villes, an irony since it was their introduction of the hardtop that made them such a sensation in 1949. Sales set a new record at 216,243. When you are surrounded by classic cars of all flavors like I am every day, your exceitement level gets a little numb compared to the general public. It takes a really unbelievable car to turn my head and normally that same car comes with a $100k+ price tag. When you come across an unrestored vehicle in the sub-$20k range that looks almost showroom new, it really gets your attention. Upon first inspection, we thought this Cadillac had received a recent restoration. The body is super straight, the interior panels and seats looked new and even the trunk panels/weatherstripping were in perfect condition. Without even a pump of the gas pedal, the Cadillac fired right up and idled perfectly. Further inspection found that this Cadillac is still titled in the original Kansas owner's name when purchased with only 21 miles on the odometer. This cadillac has always been garage kept, retains it's factory originality and has less than 46k miles since new. Those factors paired with regular service from it's owners result in the exceptional Cadillac offered here today. Features include; 472 V8, Automatic, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Cold A/C, Power Windows, Power Locks, Power Seats, Power Antenna, Chrome Bumpers, Factory AM/FM Stereo, Rubber Floormats, Trunk Mat, Tilt Steering, Tinted Glass, Woodgrain Interior Trim, Spare Tire (with cover), Original Tire Tools, Owners Manuals, Factory 15" Hubcaps, and Thick Golden Mark 245/70R15 White Wall Tires. The only imperfections we could find on the car was a few small rock chips on the front lip of the hood. As you will see in the photos below, this is an exceptional classic Sedan DeVille that can be purchased for only $16,988! SEE MONACOLUXURY.COM FOR MORE PICTURES
