Description

1968 Cadillac Sedan DeVille

Cadillac has been the preferred auto brand of celebrated people for more than a century. And its latest models, including the ATS, the CT6, and the Escalade, are intended to keep it that way. Some notables include Al Capone, Liberace, Marilyn Monroe, Shirley Temple, and Fats Domino.

You don't have to be a celebrity to own a classic Caddy, and the proof is in the pudding right here in the hallowed halls of Classic Auto Mall, and on the red carpet this 1968 Sedan DeVille, (meaning car of the town). This big old Caddy-skate with its large Detroit ironsides, luxury appointments, consignor stated 7,981 original miles, and dripping with late 60's elegance is sure to not be on stage here too long because these have become desirable stars in their own right.

Exterior
Photographers will be burning up flashbulbs clamoring to get a glimpse of this long and strong '69, (at least ours was!). And the images he captured will show every aspect of this celebrity draped in what the consignor states is the original San Mateo Red Metallic with large straight steel all minding their gaps nicely. Upfront we see a specimen in gleaming rust and dimple free chrome bumper framing a rectangular egg crate grille. Dual stacked headlights flanking a large and long hood with a cloisonn Caddy crown and the V Chevron badge below in excellent condition lead the way. We make our way back and window surround trimmings are good. A few spots on the hood and some chips on the rockers are the only flaws seen and are fairly unremarkable. A crisp clean white vinyl top covers the roof and provides a nice compliment to the red. The rear, with its gleaming vertical taillights within the bumper on either side frame a large trunk which could bring at least $2,600/month on the NYC apartment rental page. Standard Cadillac dish style wheels are on all 4 corners.

Interior
The talk of the town on awards night is always who and what is she wearing? Well with a swing of the doors I'll tell you...numerous tactile surfaces abound on the door panels in the form of white leather for the upper panels with a nice chrome surrounded burl applique. Padded leather panels are broken up by lots of chrome trimmings and power toggles for windows and locks, and plush red carpeting covers the lower sections. Turning our attention to the big benches, split in front and solid in the rear, we see more of the same shades of white in a vertical tuck and roll and buttoned leather pattern with smooth white leather on the bolsters, and an armrest in the center. Power switches allow for a full range of adjustment on the front bench. It's pure unadulterated GM design up front on the dash with a mixture of red padded vinyl broken up on the front by wood applique covered bezels, aluminum knobs, and a heater/defroster controller complete with full cigarette station hanging below the dash. A stain free red carpet covers the floors and is just begging to have my toes run through it. Not to be overlooked is the auto dimming dial which will automatically dim the headlights when an oncoming car approaches.

Drivetrain
Simply driven (literally!) to become famous, a big 472ci V8 sits comfortably in a nicely aged unrestored engine bay and produces an earth rotating 375hp. It is topped by a 4-barrel Rochester carb and has a TH400 3-speed automatic transmission on the back. Turning the tires at the back end is a 2.94 highway friendly rear axle.

Undercarriage
A light coating of surface rust is seen on some frame parts and peppers the usual suspects. Overall, though, it is structurally sound, floor pans are very nice, and suspension is fairly clean. Rockers and body hangers are strong, and coil springs are seen on all 4 corners and these work in conjunction with independent front suspension and 4 link rear. Power drum brakes for all corners.

Drive-Ability
All in working order and similar to driving your leather couch. I floated down the red carpet, or in my case specifically, the patented Classic Auto Mall test track with ease, in this smooth runner, nice handler, and easy driver. I refrained from running my piggies through the carpet this time as my cohort has a slight fear of feet.

Definitely an Oscar winner on the exterior, interior and drivetrain. Fit and finish are good, and this car has led a charmed life. With its great performance, it will rise to a standing ovation and its accolades are certainly not an act! Viola.
