1957 CADILLAC COUPE DEVILLE
The Cadillac DeVille was originally a trim level and later a
separate model produced by Cadillac. The first car to bear the name
was the 1949 Coupe de Ville, a pillarless two-door hardtop body
style with a prestige trim level above that of the Series 62 luxury
coupe. The last model to be formally known as a DeVille was the
2005 Cadillac DeVille, a full-size sedan, the largest car in the
Cadillac model range at the time. The next year, the DeVille was
officially renamed the Cadillac DTS.
The name "DeVille" is derived from the French de la ville or de
ville meaning "of the town". 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
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.
The Cadillac Series 62 Coupe de Ville was introduced late in the
1949 model year. Along with the Buick Roadmaster Riviera, and the
Oldsmobile 98 Holiday, it was among the first pillarless hardtop
coupes ever produced. At $3,496 it was only a dollar less than the
Series 62 convertible, and like the convertible, it came with power
windows standard. It was luxuriously trimmed, with leather
upholstery and chrome 'bows' in the headliner to simulate the ribs
of a convertible top. In its first year the Series 62 Coupe de
Ville only sold 2,150 units. But 1950 sales more than doubled to
4507, and in 1951 sales more than doubled again to 10,241 exceeding
the sales for the Series 62 Club Coupe that year. Also, in 1951,
Coupe de Ville chrome script appeared on the rear roof pillar for
the first time, to further distinguish it from the Series 62 Club
In 1956 the Series 62 Coupe de Ville was joined by the Series 62
Sedan de Ville, Cadillac's first standard production 4-door
hardtop. Similarly to the Coupe de Ville, it was also more
expensive and more luxuriously trimmed that the standard 4-door
Series 62. With 41,732 sold, it also easily outsold the Series 62
sedan in its very first year. Given their sales success, it was
only natural that the Coupe de Ville and Sedan de Ville were moved
to their own separate series in 1959, the Series 6300, being joined
by a DeVille convertible in 1964.
