The name "DeVille" is derived from the French de la ville or de
ville meaning "of the town".1 #fn1 In French coach building
parlance, a coupe de ville, from the French couper (to cut) i.e.
shorten or reduce, was a short four-wheeled closed carriage with an
inside seat for two and an outside seat for the driver and this
smaller vehicle was intended for use in the town or city (de
ville). An (unshortened) limousine or (in the United States) town
car has a division between the passenger and driver compartments
and if the driver's seat is outside it may be called a sedanca de
ville or town car.
The first Cadillac "Coupe de Ville" was shown during the 1949
Motorama. It was built on a Cadillac Sixty Special chassis and
featured a dummy air-scoop, chrome trim around front wheel
openings, and a one-piece windshield and rear glass. The interior
was black and trimmed in gray leather, including the headliner, to
match the roof color. It was equipped with a telephone in the glove
compartment, a vanity case and a secretarial pad in the rear
armrest, power windows and highly decorative chrome interior trim.
The prototype "Coupe de Ville" was used by GM President Charles E.
Wilson until 1957 when he presented it to his secretary. At some
time during this period it acquired a dark Vicodec roof. The
prototype "Coupe de Ville" was found and restored in the 2nd decade
of the New Millennium; it is currently (2016-17) in a private
collection in London, Ontario, Canada.
