Description

429 V8, TH400 AUTO, PWR STEER/BRAKE, CLEAN IN/OUT, RUN/DRIVE GR8, LOW OWNERSHIP!

Absolutely iconic and quite original, this 1966 Cadillac Calais is the value-priced big Caddy coupe you've been waiting for.

Stacked headlights, plenty of tailfin, and a seriously long profile is exactly what ruled the road in the '60s. But this car makes a great first impression for more than just its big Caddy appeal. This has been well-maintained, including a professional respray of the factory-correct Sandalwood paint later in life. It gives this coupe added sophistication as the subtle color has a terrific luster in the sunshine. This also helps to highlight the well-creased sheet metal. You'll love all the details, including the large form-fitting chrome bumper up front, the classic fender skirts, and the unique bright work that protects the taillights while drawing even more attention to the extended rear. Plus, in general, the Calais is an interesting car in Cadillac circles. It's far rarer than the similar but more expensive DeVille. But this was also never the bargain basement considering you could buy two new Chevy Biscaynes for the Calais' price - and still have gas money left in your pocket!

Cadillac style in the 60s was all about coordinating colors and intricate design. So when you open the door, you'll love seeing the cream and gold interior that follows the earth tones of the exterior. Plus, this shows all signs of a well-preserved original. The wide and comfortable seats are a beautiful combination of fabric and durable vinyl, and averaging only around 1,100 miles annually means little seat time to wear them in. There's plenty of room to seat six, but anytime you're just out for a solo cruise the armrest makes this comfortable just for the driver. The skinny factory steering wheel is grippy, and it provides a great view of the classy wide speedometer. As you look over all of it, you'll see this has a fantastic level of originality – from the courtesy lighting to the AM radio that's still cranking out tunes.

The big 429 cubic-inch engine under the hood with a four-barrel carburetor on top is a great '60s Cadillac motor. With the high degrees of originality on this coupe so far, it's great to know this is believed to also be the factory motor still under the hood. It has been upgraded recently with an aluminum radiator, so this classic Caddy can continue to run cool. Big torque moves all this sheet metal with ease, especially when paired with the TH400 three-speed automatic transmission. It's finished off with a newer stainless dual exhaust. As expected from a Cadillac, the ride has an unparalleled smoothness that soaks up bumps like a hovercraft. As you're enjoying the road trip, the power steering and power brakes are there to keep you in control.

The sale comes with the right paperwork, including the original warranty card, title documentation, owner's manual, and maintenance records. This is an interesting classic Caddy coupe offered at an unbeatable price. So don't let this deal slip away. Call now!
