Description

AUTOCHOICE is proud to present to you a one of 63,935 1968 Cadillac Deville Convertibles. This Cadillac is a good 50' car that is a good driver and has the potential to be a candidate for full restoration. For its year and condition, it drives very well and is a good driver and parade car for those town parades. The 75 plus photo's show the car well, but keep in mind good photos such as the ones you are seeing make the car look much better then in real person. Thus the reason I say it looks very good from 50' away. If you would like better photos you can blow up and do a micro look, just call Don at (509) 301-1498 and request the DropBox photos and any other questions you might have. The downside of the car right up front, is the radio does not work as the antenna does not go down. The power top also is inoperative. AC is there but does not blow cold. The upholstery also needs some help. Looking forward to hearing from you with your questions and/or request for the DropBox photos. For Craigslist viewers, you will only see the first 24 photos, you can see the balance of them here: http://autochoiceisyours.com/web/vehicle_photos/2186872

NOTE: FOR THOSE WHO IS VIEWING THIS AD ON CRAIGSLIST, PLEASE TEXT/CALL (509) 301-1498 TO HAVE UP TO 100 PHOTOS OR MORE FOR YOUR VIEWING PLEASURE!!!

As it had been since DeVille became a separate series, DeVille denoted Cadillac's mainstream model, falling between the Calais (which had replaced the Series 62) and the Sixty Special and Eldorado. The DeVille was redesigned for 1965 but rode on the same 129.5-inch (3,290 mm) wheelbase. Tailfins were canted slightly downward, and sharp, distinct body lines replaced the rounded look. Also new were a straight rear bumper and vertical lamp clusters. The headlight pairs switched from horizontal to vertical, thus permitting a wider grille. Curved frameless side windows appeared, and convertibles acquired tempered glass backlights. New standard features included lamps for luggage, glove and rear passenger compartments and front and rear safety belts. Power was still supplied by the 340 horsepower 429 cu in (7,030 cc) V8, which would be replaced by the 472 cu in (7,730 cc) for 1968. Perimeter frame construction allowed repositioning the engine six inches forward in the frame, thus lowering the transmission hump and increasing interior room. Pillared sedans appeared on the DeVille series for the first time, while six-window hardtop sedans were dropped. A padded vinyl roof was a $121 extra-cost option on the hardtop model. All four DeVille models had small "Tiffany-like" script nameplates on the ends of their rear fenders just above the chrome side molding.
