This classic Cadillac has some upgrades throughout.
Starting out as a trim level of the 62 Series, the Cadillac DeVille became its own model when the 62 Series designation was dropped. The original DeVille was a pillar less two-door hardtop that was positioned above the 62 in luxury. Examples like this 1958 Cadillac DeVille exemplifies the peak of classic 1950s Cadillac goodness, and the last year of the DeVille made under the 62 Series platform, before the DeVille branched out on its own in 1959.
The DeVille, name meaning ‘of the town’ was first shown at the 1949 Motorama, and had a good reception. By the time the 1958 year model rolled around, the last run of the 62 based DeVille was largely a carryover car from he previous year. It did get a new facelift with a new grille that was highlighted by a series of round ‘cleats’ at the horizontal and vertical members. It also got new headlamps and small chrome fins on the fenders.
Originally, this car would have been equipped with a 365 cubic inch engine, but this particular example has been undergone a few changes. One major change being that it’s now powered by a 350 cubic inch V8 Chevy Small Block crate engine, in lieu of the 365. The engine is backed by a hydramatic automatic transmission and it rolls on new, custom 20-inch wheels with new rubbers wrapped around them.
