1-OWNER BLACK-ON-CLACK BEAUTY, 93K MILES, NEVER LEFT GA, LOADED SURVIVOR!!!
Cadillac called it the smaller DeVille, but in today's world, this handsome black 1979 Cadillac Coupe DeVille is anything but small. Representing the last of the full-sized American luxury cars, it sports a massive 425 cubic inch V8, that magic carpet ride for which these cars are justly famous, and a beautiful black leather interior.
Some folks might call this car a survivor, and since it's still wearing its original paint, that's probably fairly accurate. As a southern car all its life, the sun can take a toll, especially on vintage paint, but this one seems to have lived a good life. Sure, there are signs of age but this is one of those cars that you wouldn't dare to repaint simply because originality is impossible to replicate. It's faded a bit and there are some chips, of course, but they're easy to forgive on a car with this much authenticity behind hit. Original paint also means blemish-free sheetmetal underneath and a very period-appropriate shine that emphasizes just how right vintage Cadillacs look in black. There's plenty of shiny stuff to satisfy your urge for chrome, and all of it remains in very good condition with no trouble spots, and if you like chrome, this sucker still delivers in a very big way. White pinstripes seem to make this car look even longer than it is, and a half padded "opera" roof adds a touch of '70s elegance, especially with the cool little opera lights on each side. A car like this is a time machine to a completely different era and we like it a lot.
If tradition is your thing, then you'll love the sumptuous black leather interior. With acres of soft, supple leather, it's the ultimate luxury car, American style. There's also plenty of faux wood on the doors and dash, but quite honestly, it's very convincing and you'll probably run your fingers over it trying to feel the grain; it's quite good. By 1979, just about everything was standard in a Cadillac, including automatic climate control (still ice cold!), power windows, seats, and locks, cruise control, and a period-perfect AM/FM radio that still works. Even though it's a 2-door coupe, there's still plenty of stretch-out room in back, the kind of accommodations that people pay extra for in cars like the long wheelbase Maybach, and it's all in remarkably good shape. Preservation class judging, your car awaits! The trunk is also tidy, still wearing original mats and a spare tire cover to keep it clean.
The 425 cubic inch V8 was just a smaller version of the mighty Cadillac 500 cubic inch, and as a result, it makes effortless torque and moves the big sedan with the kind of creamy smooth ride torque normally reserved for machines with electric motors. One glance under the hood will tell you how well-maintained this car really is, with no signs of rust, but plenty of evidence of recent maintenance and 100% factory specs. Power steering and brakes, traditional HEI ignition, and all the usual hoses and tubes are still in place, so this Cadillac runs it should in near silence. The TH400 3-speed automatic shifts effortlessly, and there's a proper muted hum from the exhaust pipe waaaay out back. Four recent 225/75/15 whitewall radials have been fitted to the original wheels with wire wheelcovers, so it looks suitably upscale.
Traditional American luxury was a way of life for decades. One drive in this DeVille will convince you way life was so great back then. Call now!
