This is a fabulously original top-of-the-line Coupe deVille that has accumulated 89,000 miles by one registered owner since new and has always been dealer maintained. It has been registered by one couple since new and has benefited from one quality repaint to the same original color.
This fine motorcar was bought new by Robert P. Disse, MD who taught at the St. Louis University School of Medicine in Missouri. Dr. Disse lived in Kirkwood, Missouri and bought the car at the Lindburg Cadillac Company in St Louis on December 14, 1967 (invariably as a Christmas present- well deserved I’m sure!).
This car has always been dealer serviced and well loved. According to records included with the car, by 1984 it had accumulated nearly 70,000 miles. By June of 1984 Dr. Disse had sadly passed away and the car was registered in only the name of Marion Disse.
In 1991 Mrs. Disse traded the car into the Lindburg Cadillac. The very same day Alan Pierson was buying a new vehicle for his fleet and, to end the negotiations asked the dealer to “throw in the ’68 Cadillac and I’ll take it”, and they did! He left the Cadillac stored in his garage for nearly 20 years until he sold it earlier this year. It had not been registered in his name, but kept in the name of Mrs. Disse.
By 1968 Cadillac featured the new 472cid (7.7L) engine with a whopping 375 horsepower. This motorcar was ordered with many of the luxury options including power steering, power brakes, climate control air conditioning, Wonder Bar radio, power windows, power door locks and gorgeous red leather interior (the video overstates that the car has “all” options- sorry).
This Cadillac has always garaged and Cadillac maintained. The original Owners Manual and Protect-O-Plate are included in addition to some receipts and records. It has matching numbers car. It has also benefitted from recent new correct wide white wall radials, new exhaust and shocks with a complete service by an authorized Cadillac dealer. This Cadillac runs and drives beautifully with cold air conditioning.
This is a fabulous opportunity to acquire an honest collectable Cadillac for an affordable price. This car has a solid history complete with documentation and exemplifies the luxury, quality and engineering of the period.
