 Vehicle Description
Hard to believe that massive cars like this 1976 Cadillac DeVille were once commonplace on America's highways. If you remember taking road trips in huge sedans like this, then you'll know that nothing rides better than a '70s luxo-barge, and this single-owner Cadillac is ideal for shows, touring, and having fun with the last of the big ones.





The color is called Phoenician Ivory, one of those timeless colors that gives the car undeniable presence. So many of these received dated '70s color combinations (there were a lot of browns on the menu), but this one, still wearing factory enamel, looks elegant and sophisticated, which is perfect for a high-end luxury car. One glance down the flanks and you can see that this has always been a nicely-maintained car and there's no evidence of major rust or repairs in its past. All four doors fit well and close tightly to create a hushed passenger compartment that's tough to explain without experiencing it. The hood is about an acre of sheetmetal that still fits well, and while these cars are notorious for crumbling bumper fillers, those on this one are in exemplary condition. A contrasting tan padded roof appears to be original-issue and in good overall condition with only a single small hole on the passenger's side and definitely no signs of trouble underneath. In addition, all the chrome and stainless trim is bright, shiny, and clear, and even the rubber bumper guards show no parking lot dings or other issues. Someone clearly loved this car.





Inside, the matching tan leather interior has a warm, inviting look that's very upscale and not '70s hokey. Leather was unusual in a closed car, with most sedans getting cloth, so this is a rather rare find. The upholstery appears to be completely original and in outstanding condition, with acres of leather hides and enough legroom in back to qualify for limousine status today. With warm faux wood accents on the door panels and dash, the interior has the ambience of a library, and the hushed silence as it whispers down the road is entirely appropriate. Only the driver's seat shows the most minor wear, but after nearly 40 years, it really is quite remarkable. It's also loaded with options, including automatic climate control (A/C is new and ice cold), cruise control, power seat, windows, and locks, plus an AM/FM stereo radio with power antenna. Stretch out because there's plenty of room fore and aft, and with that massive trunk (beautifully upholstered in original materials) you can practically take everything you own with you.





1976 was the final year for Cadillac's massive and effortless 500 cubic inch V8. While not designed for all-out horsepower, it is renowned for torque output and moves the big sedan with the kind of fluid ease that's normally reserved for bullet trains. It gathers momentum almost imperceptibly but you'll suddenly find yourself whisking along at 80 MPH without even noticing. The engine bay is pretty original with all the original equipment intact and there's lots of new stuff, so don't let the somewhat crusty air cleaner turn you off. It's backed by a TH400 3-speed automatic and a heavy-duty rear end with 2.73 gears inside, so it just loafs along on the highway. Obviously it's been out of the elements, because clean undercarriages like this just don't exist anywhere but in warm climates, and the big 235/75/15 whitewall radials provide that amazing magic carpet ride.





For fans of heavy luxury cars, it's hard to compare to the biggest and best of the '70s like this DeVille. Call today!
