1971 Cadillac DeVille (GM Heritage Center)

The 1971 DeVille was redesigned and set a record for interior width that would not be matched by any car until the full-size GM rear-wheel-drive models of the early to mid-90s. Pairs of individually housed square headlamps were separated by a V-shaped grille with an eggcrate insert. A long, wide hood with full-length windsplints ran all the way to the windshield hiding its wipers. A horizontal beltline molding ran from behind the wheel almost to the rear stopping where an elliptical bulge in the body came to a point and where thin rectangular side markers were placed above and below the chrome strip. The rear wheels were again housed partially by fender skirts.

DeVilles were set apart by thin bright metal rocker panel steps and its signature script on the front fenders.

The engine and output remained the same as the previous years.

Only two body styles remained in the series, the 4-Door Hardtop Sedan and the Coupe.
