1994 Cadillac Sedan DeVille
The name "DeVille" is derived from the French de la ville or de ville meaning "of the town". In French coach building parlance, a coup de ville, from the French couper (to cut) i.e. shorten or reduce, was a short four-wheeled closed carriage with an inside seat for two and an outside seat for the driver and this smaller vehicle was intended for use in the town or city (de ville).
This Cadillac is a three owner car, here for consignment, and your driving pleasure. Recent upgrades include a new A/C clutch fan, new copper/nickel brake lines, new shocks, and a new battery. Also a desirable 4.9 liter engine, pre-dating the problematic Northstar, and it makes 200hp!
Long straight rust free steel panels with nicely minded gaps are all bathed in Carmine Red Metallic. A somewhat rounded off design, and a little larger rear doors than the fronts, allows the important passengers plenty of private space in back. A shiny egg crate grille is flanked by molded headlights that wrap around the front quarters to form the parking and signal lighting. Just below is a body matching neoprene bumper that has a chromed trimming running through its upper quarter. This piece runs the entire way around the car and adds a nice highlight to the Carmine Red. The glass is all beautifully preserved and has some thin tasteful trimming surrounds. On back the long trunk deck melts seamlessly into the tail lighting which is a bit of a tribute to the Caddy's of the mid 1960's with a thin vertical, now squared off tail light. Turbine teardrop style wheel coverings are wrapped by thin white wall rubber.
Opening the big doors the luxury begins with molded plastic panels in light gray which forms the pulls, armrests, and actuator inserts. At the sill is a rounded molded on wood appliqu and below uses light gray carpeting. On the armrest we note toggles for power windows, power seat adjustment, power locks, and power mirror adjustments. Inside a large split back (with a lowering armrest) wide buckets covered in light gray leather which has aged gracefully with some folds and no cracks. These present with tuck and roll, inserts and smooth bolsters. In back when we swing the extra long doors we have full access to a rear bench with another fold down armrest in the same pattern as the front buckets. This bench is nice and tall on the backs and has a comfortable rest at the top for extra head and neck support. These overstuffed chairs float in a sea of clean gray carpeting. The dash top has an undulating line which is covered in light gray padded vinyl. Underneath is a wood appliqu panel that houses the blue LCD speedo/mileage display in the center and is surrounded by many push button controls for all the conveniences. The left dash has a trip computer, and the right a temp control panel. Below in the center is a digital blue LCD display AM/FM/Cassette stereo with a built-in eq. More light gray molded plastic surrounds the wood framing for the radio. Up top is a nice tight gray felted headliner. A nod to the trunk which is the size of a NYC apartment and is lined with gray felting.
Under the hood in a highly detailed and shiny engine bay, is a 4.9 liter V8. It is fed by EFI, and on back to spin the 2.73 front axle is a 4T60E 4-speed automatic transmission. All in reliable non Northstar form and producing 200hp.
Showing some surface rust on various bolts that secure the floor pans, and lots of patina all in the midst of a solid black unibody frame. This surface rust has also migrated to the rockers particularly on the back of the rear wheel wells but is still of the light invasion. Front and rear power ABS disc brakes are all around. Rack and pinion steering with all independent suspension is noted. A clean back end of the exhaust is present.
A smooth riding quick starting car that can provide comfort for 6 even on a long haul. Consigner states the car has been very reliable since his acquisition from the previous owner's widow. All functions are working just fine and it is definitely a comfy cruiser.
Large and in charge, this long smooth Carmine Red painted luxury car is ready to please its next owners. At your service, and all in Cadillac luxury.
