1977 Cadillac Coupe DeVille
The vision for the Cadillac is based on precision engineering and the complete luxury experience. This is the reason why Cadillac is one of the finest cars ever manufactured in the United States. This tradition will carry on throughout its manufacturing history, and to this day, Cadillac still remains to be America's finest luxury vehicle. Ford's vision of precision manufacturing led to the ultimate reliability of his vehicles. Therefore, Cadillac's reputation preceded itself as the better-made automobile compared to its competitors.
For consignment, a very cool Caddy from 1977, and it's all original, has all the right boxes checked and appears to have been pampered its whole life. All workings "perform as they should" states our test driver and luxury in 1977 form abounds.
Seamist Green covers the extra-large steel panels on this beautiful land yacht. It is sporting a darker green padded vinyl landau top in near showroom condition, and the same can be said for all chrome and brite-work as well as badging. All exterior lighting works perfectly, and basic finned with a smooth center Caddy wheel covers are mounted all around on thin white. Perfect green pin striping highlights various raised surfaces which embellish this luxury vehicle. All tastefully done, and you are looking at one rad green Cad from its front V shaped grille to the throwback vertical tail cathedral lights. It's all looking mint...in color and condition.
Breathe in the green ultra-padded and stitched power cloth "recliner" front seats flanking a dual armrest between the seat backs. A rear bench stretches from "B" pillar to "B"pillar, and provides plenty of room for extra passengers, along with the same embedded armrest in the middle. Door panels are a mixture of green leather, molded plastic, green carpet, stainless steel control panels and wonderful hand selected wood veneers. The doors hold the power window and power door lock switches, and the mirror adjustment joystick. The quintessential GM dash with a mixture of wood, green vinyl and stainless toggles. This dash houses a climate control system, intermittent wipers, power antenna, and rear defogger. An AM/FM stereo is there as well. Cruise control is noted on the dash controls, as are self-dimming high beams. The headliner in this car is stretched and presents beautifully as it hangs tightly over your head. For your feet the pleasure of thick pile green carpeting, showing slight fading with Caddy badged floor mats to protect the carpet. I can feel the waves crashing at my feet, as I breathe in the fresh shore air and the breeze whipping my hair, sun beating down...but I digress.
The big 425ci V8 is attached to a Turbo Hydramatic 400 3-speed automatic transmission (say that 3 times real fast!). Topping this mill is a single 4-barrel carburetor, and way back is a 10-bolt 2.25 rear axle.
Clean panels, rockers, and frame structurally sound. We note the front independent suspension, and a 4 link on the rear with coil over helper shocks. Power disc brakes up front, and power drum brakes on the rear, with a factory replacement muffler and exhaust system in respectable condition.
This car was one luxurious drive, in keeping up with the Cadillac name. No disappointments on the test track where the air blew cold, brakes were bias free, and the new tires held the curves like a new mother holding her baby. After my drive I took a nap in those green cloth recliners but didn't tell the boss man... ("Boss makes a dollar, I make a dime, that's why I sleep on company time!")
Luxury and length at its finest. Cadillac was managing to ignore the gas crisis that seemed to be going on all around it, and despite this remained very popular. Grab a piece of GM history, all in original condition and running like a fine watch, only it's a Cadillac! Guaranteed to show up to anything in style, minted as Cadillac Coupe DeVille, a storied classic in the luxury realm most of us would never have had the chance to have known but now can..." As it should be".
