1979 Cadillac Coupe Deville D'Elegance
The name "DeVille" is derived from the French de la ville or de ville meaning "of the town". In French coach building parlance, a coupé de ville, from the French couper (to cut) i.e. shorten or reduce, was a short four-wheeled closed carriage with an inside seat for two and an outside seat for the driver and this smaller vehicle was intended for use in the town or city (de ville).
For consignment a very clean, very straight, very nice, very fairly priced 1979 Cadillac. A Florida car which was undercoated at the dealership and remains this way today, this all original car has led a pampered life.
Beautiful Colonial Yellow respray paint covers extremely solid, clean, straight steel panels throughput. Bumper fillers are in very nice condition. Wonderful chrome, stainless steel trim, and brite work throughout. Noted is the top of the rear bumper there is slight fading due to the Florida sun shining through the garage door window! This is a rare d'Elegance with a vinyl top delete, which displays a very clean painted only line from top to bottom. Stunning Cadillac wire wheel covers with new radial white wall tires covering them are seen all around.
Burnished Gold Venetian Velour Cloth (Pillow style cushions) cover the front 50/50 bench seat, and the massive rear fixed bench. Tangier carpeting, door pull handles, and "d'Elegance" emblems among other niceties seen on this luxurious car. Dashpad is mint condition and this Cadillac has all the conveniences such as climate control, power windows, power mirrors, power locks, power brakes, power steering, power antenna, and an AM/FM Stereo. Lest we forget, plenty of burl to go around.
The original 425ci 4-barrel sits in an immaculate engine bay. Wonderfully smooth, the Turbo 400 transmission is bolted on back. Noted in the engine bay is a lack of corrosion. Noticeable is the excellent shine on all hoses, valve covers, brake cylinders, reservoirs and air cleaner housing. All original here too.
Driven sparingly and used as a show car, it reflects glowingly on the underside of this 40-year-old luxury automobile. Totally rust free, and very solid is all one can notice, except for the shine there too!
In the market for an American classic that is low mileage (under 2,000 MILES A YEAR!) looks great, and drives like a dream? Look no further as cream puffs such as this will not be here long, people will be snapping this up due to its wonderful attributes.
