This 1977 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 impressive documentation, and it's loaded with features - including cold-blowing A/C. It has a terrific story of being in the same family for all its life thus far.
This car looks impressive in the pictures, and it doesn't disappoint in person either. We know it's special because the consignor's brother bought the car new, and it's a one-family coupe. As you dive into all the details, you can see a careful level of thoughtfulness in the way this mixes preservation with solid investments to retain an attractive impression. A great place to first recognize it is in the paint. Red is one of those colors that look great on an angular 70s design. This factory-correct color was given a professional respray about 20 years ago, but the way it presents today would put some 2022 restorations to shame. After all, this Caddy has only averaged about 1,800 miles annually. So most of its life has been about garage-kept care and responsible pleasure cruises. It means the crisp lines of the well-kept sheet metal get highlighted by the glossy red presentation. And, of course, a bright Caddy needs good chrome. The front bumper leads the way with a design that boldly comes to a central point. It's joined by the shine of the grille, bezels, wire 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 subtle two-tone elegance.
The red interior against the red exterior has a European level of sophistication. It's a comfy setup with plenty of room for up to six people. But no matter how many passengers you have, the driver is always king. Leather seating, a fold-down armrest, tilt 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, 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, electric rear defogger, and cold-blowing factory air conditioning on the automatic climate controls. There are small details that just can't escape the wear of time, but really, that helps tell this car's distinct tale. For example, the radio currently needs servicing, but we're glad they left it on display because it's the rare and expensive optional unit with integrated CB - so that's pure 1970s cool. And the whole package can impress with the little things, like the smooth wood-like trim, clock, and the instrument panel courtesy lights.
Under the hood is the big 425 cubic-inch V8. It has the same well-maintained presentation that you see all over this coupe, and with the one-family history, it's hard to believe this is anything but the original powerhouse. 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, power steering, and power brakes with discs up front.
A car with this kind of desirable history also comes with desirable documentation. It includes the dealer invoice, owner's manual, title documentation, and the original window sticker (that shows how loaded this one came from the factory.) You're looking at an exceptional 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 now!
