This is a fantastic original 1966 Cadillac DeVille convertible with a fully documented 89,000 original miles. This car wears its original livery with only a few panels being touch up with new paint as necessary to keep the car in beautiful condition. It still has its original glass rear window, black convertible top and top boot which are in very nice condition. It is a fabulous original car that can be enjoyed as-is at local and regional concours events and would handily perform well in Preservation Class competition.
This car was purchased new on January 1, 1966. By January 14, 1970, Mr. Ted Struck purchased the car as he was released from the Navy. He needed a car and acquired the DeVille at a Chevrolet dealership. Of course, the manager of the dealership used the car for his daily transportation until sold!
Mr. Struck has kept the car in fantastic original condition over the past 42 years. He has all the invoices for repairs in a meticulous file, starting with the sales invoice from 1970 through all repairs and maintenance items since. Nearly every service and repair was performed by the famous San Diego Cadillac dealership, Marvin K. Brown.
It has a fully functioning original black convertible top in very nice condition- so nice it is amazing that it is original. The car has recently installed white wall radial tires and mechanically is excellent and has been fully serviced. This is a very clean and nearly rust free example with nearly any signs of rust. We have included detailed photographs of the undercarriage for details. It is very close to rust free and very solid as you would expect from a California motorcar.
Each DeVille produced had the powerful 429 cu in V8 with 340 hp. The 129.5 in wheelbase makes for a very smooth and luxurious ride with an overall length of 224 inches. Of course this DeVille is loaded with options including air conditioning (not presently working due to a frozen compressor), cruise control, wonderbar radio, power seats and power windows and top. These 1960′s Cadillacs are fabulous motorcars.
