Harry's Thoughts

This is a very nice example that is sure to help make its new caretaker many happy memories!

THE ESSENTIALS

This is a solid original “black plate” California  three owner DeVille convertible (Style number 68367-F) said to have 87,000 original miles.  This car has evidence of one poorer quality repaint in the original color.   In 1985 it had less than 77,000 and today it has just under 87,000 miles.  It has been shown repeatedly at car shows throughout Northern California.  Although it is not a concours car, it is a fabulous original car that can be enjoyed as-is or improved over time.

This car was purchased new in the Sacramento area.  The second owner, Jerry Rose, bought this car from the original owner in the 1980’s and kept it until 2008, when Bob Shaw bought it near Redding, CA.  This was ordered new in Saddle Firemist (Paint Code 97-1) which was a special ElDorado color.

We have ordered a new correct white convertible top with the correct rear window glass to replace the worn but serviceable original top.  The new convertible top will be installed before the end of February.  The car has recently installed radial tires and mechanically is strong.  There is a very small section of surface rot appearing on the drivers side and we have included a close up photograph for details.  It is very close to rust free and very solid as you would expect from a “black plate” California motorcar.

There were 19,200 DeVille Convertibles made in 1965.  Each 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, full power and cruise control. These 1960’s Cadillacs are fabulous motorcars.

The NADA value shows High Retail at $28,700 and Average Retail at $19,850.  See details of the value at: http://www.nadaguides.com/Classic-Cars/1965/Cadillac/Deville/2-Door-Convertible/Values.

This, being a documented “black plate” car with documented history is a terrific value.  To research financing alternatives and to learn more about buying collector cars, please visit our website at www.classicpromenade.com.

Interesting Fact: The Cadillac Coupe DeVille started out as a trim level of Cadillac vehicles, but eventually became its own line in 1958, with production continuing until 2005. This full-size luxury car gets its name “DeVille” after the French translation, meaning “of the town”.   The model was first shown during the 1949 Motorama and was placed onto a Cadillac Sixty Special chassis. At launch, the going price was $3,496 which equates to roughly $31,000 today. Remembered for the sharp tailfins added to the model, the DeVille is easily distinguishable on the road. As the generations developed, the styling choices calmed by a little bit and became far smoother than before.   Over the years, the DeVille has switched between being Cadillac’s mainstream vehicle to just another vehicle in the line. With that said, it was the largest model in Cadillac’s lineup during its final year in 2005, before being renamed to the Cadillac DTS. Even though the DeVille is no longer in production, the earliest models with the unique tailfins are rare finds that many attempt to add to their garage!
