472 V8 TORQUE MONSTER, FRNT PWR DISC BRAKES, A/C, NEW TOP & INTERIOR, LOADED!!!
Hard to go wrong with almost 19 feet of Cadillac convertible, in bright red no less! If you want to get noticed, be the center of attention at parades, and pretty much look like you have the world at you beck and call, nothing delivers the message better than a vintage Cadillac ragtop like this 1970 DeVille.
Looking at the price, you can be forgiven for thinking this is some worn-out beater, but you'd be incorrect in your assumption. The bright red paint isn't correct, but it does look good and if you're looking to make a grand entrance in Vegas, this is your ride. The finish is bright enough to make your eyes water, but bright red isn't a bad choice on a vintage Cadillac convertible, because they were, at heart, flamboyant cars. You can see that this one is straight just by looking at the white pinstripe that lances down the sides from nose to tail and the door fit well enough to suggest that it's never been in a major accident. Cadillacs are known for fins and chrome, and this one has both, from the pontoon-shaped front bumpers that are in great shape to the pointed taillights out back that leave no question as to what kind of car this is. It's not perfect, but it has just the right patina to suggest a casual lifestyle that embraces the good things without sweating the details.
Bright red leather was this car's original upholstery choice, however, and thanks to correct new seat covers, it looks extremely fresh. Matching carpets with correct heel pad, original-looking door panels that are remarkably well-preserved, and the woodgrained accents still look bright. Of course, almost everything was standard in your 1970 Cadillac convertible, from power windows and locks to A/C to a six-way front bench seat. The 1970 Cadillacs also had a very cool wrap-around instrument panel that pretty much gave the driver exclusive use of all the controls, and it's all easy to reach. A new dash pad and a new white power convertible top was recently installed, including a crystal clear rear window that eliminates the worry of broken glass. The cavernous trunk is pretty stock, and includes a full-sized spare tire with cover.
Cadillac's 472 cubic inch V8 make locomotive-like torque, easily propelling the big DeVille with authority. They're also indestructible low-RPM engines that never feel like they're working very hard, and thanks to good maintenance throughout its life, this one runs quite well indeed. With a 4-barrel carburetor on top, it gets off the line easily, but where it's really at home is interstate cruising, where there's no better way to travel. The engine bay is well-kept if not detailed, and service access is surprisingly good compared to the Eldorado convertible that would follow. A TH400 3-speed automatic spins a heavy-duty rear end that looks like it belongs under a giant truck rather than a luxury car, and the suspension is in good order so that incomparable '70s Cadillac ride is part of the package. Stock wheels with hubcaps give it the right look and carry 235/75/15 whitewall radials.
Big and flashy, this Cadillac delivers an A-list celebrity experience at a bargain-basement price. With lots of new work, an attractive color combination, and that luxurious ride, this is a huge bang for the buck. Call today!
