1977 Cadillac Coupe DeVille
The vision for the Cadillac is based on precision engineering and
the complete luxury experience. This is the reason why Cadillac is
one of the finest cars ever manufactured in the United States. This
tradition will carry on throughout its manufacturing history, and
to this day, Cadillac still remains to be America's finest luxury
vehicle. Ford's vision of precision manufacturing led to the
ultimate reliability of his vehicles. Therefore, Cadillac's
reputation preceded itself as the better-made automobile compared
to its competitors.
For consignment, a very cool Caddy from 1977, and it's all
original, has all the right boxes checked and appears to have been
pampered its whole life. All workings "perform as they should"
states our test driver and luxury in 1977 form abounds.
Seamist Green covers the extra-large steel panels on this beautiful
land yacht. It is sporting a darker green padded vinyl landau top
in near showroom condition, and the same can be said for all chrome
and brite-work as well as badging. All exterior lighting works
perfectly, and basic finned with a smooth center Caddy wheel covers
are mounted all around on thin white. Perfect green pin striping
highlights various raised surfaces which embellish this luxury
vehicle. All tastefully done, and you are looking at one rad green
Cad from its front V shaped grille to the throwback vertical tail
cathedral lights. It's all looking mint...in color and
Breathe in the green ultra-padded and stitched power cloth
"recliner" front seats flanking a dual armrest between the seat
backs. A rear bench stretches from "B" pillar to "B"pillar, and
provides plenty of room for extra passengers, along with the same
embedded armrest in the middle. Door panels are a mixture of green
leather, molded plastic, green carpet, stainless steel control
panels and wonderful hand selected wood veneers. The doors hold the
power window and power door lock switches, and the mirror
adjustment joystick. The quintessential GM dash with a mixture of
wood, green vinyl and stainless toggles. This dash houses a climate
control system, intermittent wipers, power antenna, and rear
defogger. An AM/FM stereo is there as well. Cruise control is noted
on the dash controls, as are self-dimming high beams. The headliner
in this car is stretched and presents beautifully as it hangs
tightly over your head. For your feet the pleasure of thick pile
green carpeting, showing slight fading with Caddy badged floor mats
to protect the carpet. I can feel the waves crashing at my feet, as
I breathe in the fresh shore air and the breeze whipping my hair,
sun beating down...but I digress.
The big 425ci V8 is attached to a Turbo Hydramatic 400 3-speed
automatic transmission (say that 3 times real fast!). Topping this
mill is a single 4-barrel carburetor, and way back is a 10-bolt
2.25 rear axle.
Clean panels, rockers, and frame structurally sound. We note the
front independent suspension, and a 4 link on the rear with coil
over helper shocks. Power disc brakes up front, and power drum
brakes on the rear, with a factory replacement muffler and exhaust
system in respectable condition.
This car was one luxurious drive, in keeping up with the Cadillac
name. No disappointments on the test track where the air blew cold,
brakes were bias free, and the new tires held the curves like a new
mother holding her baby. After my drive I took a nap in those green
cloth recliners but didn't tell the boss man... ("Boss makes a
dollar, I make a dime, that's why I sleep on company time!")
Luxury and length at its finest. Cadillac was managing to ignore
the gas crisis that seemed to be going on all around it, and
despite this remained very popular. Grab a piece of GM history, all
in original condition and running like a fine watch, only it's a
Cadillac! Guaranteed to show up to anything in style, minted as
Cadillac Coupe DeVille, a storied classic in the luxury realm most
of us would never have had the chance to have known but now can..."
As it should be".
