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, 1 family owned and always pampered by our consignor with never seeing inclement weather and always having a tank of high test. The beneficiary of a paint and interior redux in 2004 shortly after our consignor purchased it from his wife's brother-in-law, who was the original owner. Let's settle right in and enjoy the finer things in life and enjoy all the juiciness this Saffron orange luxury cruiser has to offer.
A Saffron Metallic respray covers the extra-large steel panels on this beautiful land yacht. It is sporting a contrasting white 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 spoke chromed Caddy wheel covers are mounted all around. All tastefully done, and you are looking at one snappy Caddy. From its front V shaped grille to the throwback vertical tail cathedral lights it exudes the late 1970's
Breathe in the saffron ultra-padded and stitched bucket leather "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 saffron leather, molded plastic, 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, saffron vinyl and stainless panels. 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 saffron carpeting, showing slight fading on the hump with clear floor mats to protect the carpet. I'm just mad about Saffron, Saffron's mad about me...
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.
Plenty room for potential problems, however none are really noted here with clean panels, rockers, and frame structurally sound. We note the coil spring front independent suspension, and 4 link with coils on the rear. Power disc brakes up front, and power drum brakes on the rear, with a factory replacement muffler and exhaust system.
This car was one luxurious drive, in keeping up with the Cadillac name. No disappointments on the test track save for an inoperable driver's power seat. All else performed wonderfully, where the air blew cold, brakes were bias free, and the tires held the curves like a new mother holding her baby. After my drive I took a nap in those Saffron leather recliners but don'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, the 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".
