Featured here is a great classic luxury car in this 1966 Cadillac DeVille. This car has its complete ownership documented and includes a plethora of maintenance records as well. The odometer shows 22,456 miles on it and this car is largely in original condition and in very good operating order making this an affordable vehicle to purchase, enjoy and do some light cosmetic restoration on as you enjoy it.
This Caddy is painted the factory Strathmore White, with much of the original paint present but some amateur spot paint repairs have been made to the finish. Understandably this 57-year-old finish also has several scratches and chips in the paint but overall, the paint still has a nice shine to it and exhibits well. The original black top is still in place and is starting to delaminate slightly near the rear quarter panels, but there does not appear to be any underlying surface rust under the top or around the windows. All the stainless trim is in place and will require some light restoration to remove some buffing scratches and the chrome bumpers present with a rich luster showing only some light patina.
Inside the cabin is completely original and well preserved. The seat upholstery is free of any heavy wear, tears or pulls and is only showing some light color fade. The carpet is original with some wear near the thresholds but retains rich color. The door panels are original and in good condition, and the factory floor mats are still in place. As expected, this vintage luxury car is well optioned with power windows, power locks, and power seats as well as factory air conditioning (needs service) with AM radio with rear speakers.
Under the hood has been lightly detailed and presents nicely with some recent service to the cooling system with new hoses and coolant and fan belts. The factory 429 V8 still sits between the frame rails and starts up easily with the choke fully operating. Shifting is smooth and handled by a GM 3-speed Turbo-Hydramatic 400. Underneath the frame and floors are unrestored showing no indications of any rust or accident repair and appears to have been lightly undercoated early on in its ownership. The power-assisted four-wheel drum brakes have been recently serviced including new rubber lines. New stabilizer bar links have been installed and this car was recently treated to a fresh full exhaust. The power steering is effortless as you guide this car floating down the highway riding on steel 15" wheels with the original wheel covers and wrapped in Hankook P235/75R15 Mileage Plus radial tires.
This Cadillac cruises very smoothly and the patina is just right as it is for a great vintage driver, however, a paint job would go a long way to dress this car up. It should be noted this car comes with some extra parts, including a carburetor with a rebuild kit, power seat assembly, engine gasket kit, and a full set of service manuals.
