Vehicle Description

1965 Cadillac Coupe (Calais) - This is a pristine, one of a kind, perfect running, ALL ORIGINAL OEM land yacht! Asking $19,700 OBO. You will not find another 65 Cadillac Coupe in this condition, at this price level anywhere! Most comparable vehicles are sedans or have mechanical / body issues. Not this Caddy!! A real head-turner and a true icon of the American luxury classic that is Cadillac. This vehicle is  rare find! This is one of those classic cars that EVERYONE loves. Hot rodders, muscle car guys, and especially all other cruiser people LOVE these old Cadillacs! Sure, there are plenty of 70's Caddies driving around - but you do NOT see many from the mid-60's!  Even people who aren't really "car" people stop and stare - this Caddy is beloved by all! 

IF THIS AD IS STILL VISIBLE THE CAR IS STILL AVAILABLE (ad will be removed promptly once a sale is finalized)

All numbers match, all original equipment - and only 42K original miles! Equipped with the Cadillac 429ci engine mated with an ever-reliable, smooth shifting TH400 transmission. ORIGINAL FACTORY A/C BLOWS COLD! Fully functional Climate Control system works perfectly, excellent for those hot summer days! The pictures speak for themselves - the interior has been immaculately maintained - original plastic, chrome trim, vinyl and cloth seats. Matching floor mats are in place, but this car also comes with the original factory rubber Tan colored floor mats (see the trunk picture). And the trunk still has the original cardboard liner along the wall! The chrome is in amazingly good shape! No pitting, minimal blemishes, chrome shines bright in and out of the whole car!  All other parts and functions are pure original / OEM. I bought this Caddy last year and gave her some much needed love and maintenance updates. This was originally a Georgia car, has spent most of her life garaged in the warm Southeast. She now is running strong and smooth - perfectly capable of being a daily driver, weekend cruiser - or whatever you desire. Starts up with ease, rides smooth as a cloud, drives straight, can cruise the highways effortlessly. New shocks in the front, the rear is supported by strong, manually adjustable air shocks. Notable features include: Power Windows, Power Brakes (drum brakes), Power Steering, and Temperature-Dial controlled FACTORY A/C!

All gauges work, climate control works perfectly (strong COLD A/C). This beauty starts, idles, shifts and drives like a dream! This car is a clean, sharp looking DRIVER. It is perfect, as is, and needs absolutely nothing! Maintenance has all been updated and won't be needed for some time (see below). Take it as is and roll into cruise nights in rare style. Or, this Caddy could be brought up to show car level with a professional paint job and some very minor body touch up. Floor pans are solid & strong- no rot - just mild surface weathering from time but otherwise rock solid underneath!

This car is entirely original except for 2 items - (1) single OEM exhaust has been updated to a very tasteful, sleek looking dual exhaust with an OEM-appearance. Exhaust is brand new, fitted with 55 Series Flowmaster mufflers. Pipes are mated perfectly to the original, OEM exhaust manifolds. The result is an organic, sharp OEM dual outlet appearance in the rear that produces a muted, yet classic burble upon start up. This car has a very low, tasteful rumble - pipes are NOT loud. Exhaust note is tame with no crackle or droning - perfect sound level for an old cruiser like this Caddy. (2) This car has been repainted once - color has been closely matched to the original white color. 

This Coupe is the Calais trim level....which is exactly the same as the Coupe DeVille, minus leather seats, sentinel automatic headlights, and cruise control. Aside from those items and the badging, this is Cadillac Coupe with no discernible differences. Come get this rare, amazing Cadillac - drive her home today!
