For Sale: 1960 Cadillac Coupe DeVille in BEDFORD, Ohio

Vehicle Description

Definitively proving that less is more, the 1960 Cadillac Coupe de Ville featured more restrained styling than its 1959 predecessor. The tailfins were lower with a full-width grille, the pointed front bumper guards were eliminated, and there was less, more- tasteful chrome trim and added front fender-mounted directional indicator lamps.

Standard equipment (that would have been options on less expensive marques) included:

  • power as in steering, brakes and windows
  • 4-speed Hydramatic overdrive transmission
  • 6-way power bench seat
  • dual back-up lights
  • 2-speed windshield wipers
  • outside rear-view mirror
  • lighted vanity mirror
  • front disc brakes
  • blue cloth with white leather interior
  • blue carpet
  • new radial tires

This lovely classic is a mild custom that has spent much of its life in Tennessee and has no body rust.  The interior cloth and leather combination is well-preserved and matches the exterior. The chassis was lowered 2 inches and has newer control arms, an aluminum radiator and the original trunk mat. All electrics work well.

The top-of-the-line Caddy would have included as standard equipment a 390 cu in engine.  However, during its restoration, a rebuilt 472 cu in engine was installed. Now it delivers 375 hp at 444 rpm and a massive 525 lb ft torque at just 3,000 rpm.  And don’t forget the dual exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers also added during the restoration.

It’s a beauty -- both in a show and on the road.
