GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1968 Cadillac DeVille
Convertible for consideration. Powering this big old Caddy is a 7.7
Liter V8 paired to a smooth-shifting automatic transmission. This
Drop Top Caddy comes in a bright blue paint job complemented by a
white interior. Some features working well on this Caddy are
headlights, high and low beams, brake lights, tail lights, turn
signals, power top, horn, windows, and much more. This Deville has
always been stored inside and driven on nice days. So if you are
looking for a fun drop-top this is the car for you! Please call or
email us today for more information.
As it had been since DeVille became a separate series, DeVille
denoted Cadillac's mainstream model, falling between the Calais
(which had replaced the Series 62) and the Sixty Special and
Eldorado. The DeVille was redesigned for 1965 but rode on the same
129.5-inch (3,290 mm) wheelbase. Tailfins were canted slightly
downward, and sharp, distinct body lines replaced the rounded look.
Also new were a straight rear bumper and vertical lamp clusters.
The headlight pairs switched from horizontal to vertical, thus
permitting a wider grille. Curved frameless side windows appeared,
and convertibles acquired tempered glass backlights. New standard
features included lamps for luggage, glove and rear passenger
compartments and front and rear safety belts. Power was still
supplied by the 340 horsepower 429 cu in (7,030 cc) V8, which would
be replaced by the 472 cu in (7,730 cc) for 1968. Cadillac dropped
the X-frame and used a new perimeter frame.11 #fn11 Pillared sedans
appeared on the DeVille series for the first time, while six-window
hardtop sedans were dropped. A padded vinyl roof was a $121
extra-cost option on the hardtop model. All four DeVille models had
small "Tiffany-like" script nameplates on the ends of their rear
fenders just above the chrome side molding.
