For Sale: 1978 Cadillac Coupe in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

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 front.

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!!!
