This 1978 Cadillac Coupe DeVille checks all the right boxes. It's
got a big V8 under the hood, a sophisticated color combo, a ton of
originality, and it's loaded with features - including cold-blowing
A/C. It all makes for a great classic that remains a solid cruiser
for modern times.
The whole car looks impressive in the pictures, and it doesn't
disappoint in person either. In fact, we're told that the consignor
bought the car from a collector who's known for finding low-mileage
and babied Cadillacs. With that in mind, it has been assumed (but
not proven) that the low odometer reflects the full actual mileage.
And as you dive into all the details, you can see a collector-level
of thoughtfulness in the way this mixes preservation with solid
investments to retain a top-quality impression. A great place to
first recognize it is in the paint. Carmine Red is one of those
colors that look great on an angular 70s design. This
factory-correct color was given a professional respray. It means
the crisp lines of the well-kept sheet metal really get highlighted
in this glossy presentation. And of course, a bright Caddy needs
shining chrome. The front bumper leads the way with a front bumper
that boldly comes to a central point. It's joined by the shine of
the grille, bezels, factory wheel covers, and the upright rear
reflectors that gave these Cadillacs a hint of the iconic tailfin.
But this one even gets the little details right with a full white
pinstripe package that coordinates with the whitewall tires and a
white half-vinyl roof for a subtle two-tone elegance.
The full Mulberry red interior has a deeper tone of red than the
exterior, and the full color combo has a European level of
sophistication. The other reason why it impresses inside is because
of the right investment. The seats were reupholstered in
Ultraleather, and the fresh and supple feeling they have is
arguably better than you got when this car was new! It's a comfy
setup where there is plenty of room for up to six people. But no
matter how many passengers you have, the driver is always king. A
fold-down armrest, tilt/telescopic steering column, and front power
seat all make it easy to get comfortable even for the long haul.
And speaking of the big trips, the trunk is well-presented, right
down to the correct mat, and it has the kind of space for all your
luggage, including the golf clubs. No matter if you're going near
or far, you'll appreciate how this is loaded with the best factory
features, like power windows, power locks, an AM/FM stereo, and
factory air conditioning cold-blowing with modern R134a
refrigerant. There is a concours-level of detail inside, and so it
can impress right down to the little things, like the working power
antenna, smooth wood-like trim, working clock, and the full set of
courtesy lights - even on the instrument panel.
Under the hood is the big 425 cubic-inch V8. This is the
numbers-matching unit, and it has the same time capsule
presentation that you see all over this coupe. These kinds of cars
are all about torque, and this Caddy has no trouble moving because
it makes enough torque to rival the modern full-size Cadillacs. And
it has all the right features for an easy driver, like cruise
control, a three-speed automatic transmission, supple suspension,
newer tires, power steering, and power brakes with discs up
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and sale brochures.
You're looking at an award-worthy presentation of one of the
ultimate classic cruisers ever. So if you know true Cadillac
luxury, you know this is a special one that you can't let slip
away. Call today!!!
