“Cadillac for ’76. You don’t pamper it. It pampers you.”
These are the words with which Cadillac described its stunning array of 1976 models—models that would be the last of what its discriminating customers considered “traditional full-size luxury cars.” With GM corporate downsizing on the horizon for 1977, the 1976 models were the last of a generation of Cadillacs unequaled in luxury, comfort, and performance.
This gorgeous 1976 Cadillac Coupe DeVille is finished in Dumbarton Green—a seldom seen color that is striking in appearance. The finish has a beautiful luster, which is further enhanced by its contrasting Dark Green elk grain cabriolet roof and accent stripes. Its abundant chrome and brightwork give further distinction to the exterior of this car, and are in excellent condition.
The all original interior is equally sumptuous and features comfortable dual comfort seats finished in Dark Green leather and rich simulated Rosewood appliqués. The seating areas are in excellent condition, as are the dashboard, interior door panels, carpeting, and headliner. Lovers of originality will also appreciate its optional factory floor mats.
In addition to the standard luxury and convenience items one would expect to find in a Cadillac such as power windows, power door locks, driver’s 6-way power seat adjuster, automatic climate control, courtesy and map lights, this Coupe DeVille features a long list of optional equipment, including the following:
With the exception of the cruise control and clock, all power options work as they should, including the ice-cold air conditioning.
Under the hood you will find a 4-barrel carbureted 500 CID V-8 engine mated to a three-speed automatic transmission. This car is a real pleasure to drive—with power, smoothness, and confidence-inspiring performance that will have you commanding the road. Having 91,700 original miles, this car runs and drives as well as it looks.
Owned and enjoyed by the most recent owners for the past ten years, it was purchased in Boise, Idaho, and was previously a high desert car. It benefits from a new alternator and tires that are four years old, and has a current West Virginia inspection. Driven on several long-distance trips during their ownership, it can be driven with confidence.
If a beautifully turned out full-size Cadillac in an eye-catching color combination is what you desire, look no further than this stunning 1976 Coupe DeVille!
