This 1981 Cadillac Coupe DeVille is a preserved classic that is becoming cooler by the day especially because this one is sharp, loaded, and has a story to tell. So the affordable price really makes this V8 cruiser irresistible.

The odometer is believed to reflect the full actual mileage of this car. That's because the story we're told on this one is that the original owner bought the coupe for his wife, but she never drove it. The car eventually went to the son, and he eventually sold it to the first owner outside of the family in decades. Now is your chance to be the second owner outside of the family. While this has received less use, that does not mean it missed out on care. The Sterling Silver Metallic paint looks like it was given a proper respray later in life. And it's well-detailed with the black pinstripe that coordinates with the taut black vinyl half roof. Brightwork is always a priority on a classic Caddy, and you can really see the difference you get in a well-maintained car like this. The front bumper has a bright and crisp style, and well-preserved end caps mean a nearly seamless line between the body and the upright chrome taillight housing. And there are also terrific details with the clean grille, complete bagging (w/hood ornament,) and the Cadillac wire wheels. In total, it makes for the bright and well-creased style you want in a DeVille.

The red leather interior looks bold against the silver exterior. And the condition of the seats, plush carpeting, wood-like trim, smooth dash, and more all really show that like-new condition that backs up this ultra low-mileage feeling. Not only does this feel like a time capsule, but it's also loaded. So you have power front seats, power windows, power locks, cruise control, a tilt steering column, and the factory AM/FM/cassette stereo. The automatic A/C climate control has been converted to modern R134a refrigerant, and it likely just needs a recharge to blow cold again. Just like any good Cadillac, it has space for six people, but the fold-down armrests provide individual comfort. And the trunk is large enough to carry the whole foursome's golf clubs.

This is still the era of big Cadillac V8s, and the 368 cubic-inch motor is believed to be original to this very original car. But the advantage of later DeVilles in this generation is that you had factory fuel injection. This is a strong powerhouse, and it floats down the road as a proper Caddy should. Plus, a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with front discs make a great total package.

The sale comes complete with plenty of paperwork, including the owner's manual packet, title documentation, service manuals, and maintenance records. This is a preserved true American cruiser offered for quite an affordable price. Call today!!!
