4610 Pet Lane
Regal, powerful, and quite luxurious, this 1965 Cadillac DeVille is a highly correct classic that defined what a cool cruising convertible is. So when one of the most desirable drop-tops around is also this nicely priced, you know it's time to take a closer look.
This car is iconic. When we close our eyes, and think of a classic Caddy, this is what comes to mind. It's because the designers were out to create a memorable car with a crisp point in the center of the hood and equally sharp points flaking it on the fenders. This helps create that impossibly long profile that shows these DeVilles owned the road. In the rear, Cadillac kept the tailfin era alive by making it into a well-integrated sporty rear overhang. And of course, there's the brightwork. The wraparound front bumper, extra-wide grille, form-fitting rear bumper, and all that trim make this flash with class. And because this design was an instant classic, it only gets better on with a well-presented white paint. It has a metallic pearl element in this upgraded application, and so it lets out that radiant look you really want in a premium Caddy every time you take this drop-top out on a sunny day.
The black convertible top is newer, and so it has a crisp look against the white car to give this a timeless stylishness. And with the flip of a switch, it powers down to reveal the full black and white interior. So this classic Caddy has the look of formalwear with the roof on or off. There's a ton of style in the details, like the bright trim and the textured inserts in the button-top seatbacks. You also have provisions for great factory items, like a power front seat, power windows, and air conditioning. So you can use this Caddy's value price to leave room in the budget for any of these features you may want to restore. But this is already an awesome cruiser from day one. There's a fold-down armrest to give you individual driver's comfort. The classic and grippy three-spoke steering wheel is on a tilt column to give you a great view of the full artful gauge package. And there's even a well-integrated retro-style AM/FM digital tuner to give you upgraded cruising music.
A big 429 cubic-inch engine with a four-barrel carburetor on top is a great '60s Cadillac motor. The bright blue block of Cadillac's V8 makes sure this one radiates with power in the dark engine bay. The full setup has a very original look, and the VIN stamped on the block tells us this was the original engine to the car. There are some nice upgrades to keep this a true cruiser, like the electric fuel pump, a newer brake dual master cylinder, and newer dual exhaust. The big torque of the V8 moves all this sheetmetal with ease, especially when paired with the TH400 three-speed automatic transmission. 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, power brakes, and modern touring tires make for a desirable driving package.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and a second set of Cadillac wheel covers. When an iconic drop-top like this is up for grabs, you know this is a deal that will be moving soon. Call today!!!
