It’s like driving a padded lounge chair down the road, only more fashionable.
Too often people think not much was happening in the American automotive industry during the mid-1970s. That’s absolutely not the case, as plaining displayed by this beautiful 1975 Cadillac DeVille. This unmolested survivor luxury car is ready for a new owner after having been lovingly cared for since brand new.
You might think that glistening Dunbarton Green paint job is fresh, but the reality is it’s the original coat. There are a few blemishes, but for the age of the car everything is in fantastic shape. A Dark Blue Green top adds to the striking good looks of the exterior, along with mirror-like brightwork, clear and uncracked glass and lenses, factory hubcaps in good condition, and Goodyear whitewall tires.
Matching the elevated look of the exterior is the all-original Blue Green cloth interior. No apparent signs of damage are present throughout, while the backseat apparently was seldom used. Even the factory carpeting is still plush and not faded in the least, plus the OE floormats are present. All factory controls and gauges are present and functional, including the original radio. However, the power antennae no longer works. Also not working is the blower motor and R12 air conditioning.
With a mere 42,140 miles on the odometer, the 500 cubic-inch V8 runs strong and smooth. A full documentation packet comes with the car, including the original window sticker, pre-delivery inspection report, warranty booklet, owner’s manual, and even more.
Cadillac made about 173,570 DeVilles for 1975, making it by far the brand’s most popular car for the year. Despite those high production numbers, quite a few didn’t survive into this century, let alone are around today. As time marches on, the value of this car should increase steadily. Take advantage of this solid investment opportunity from Chicago Car Club before someone else does.
