Harry's Thoughts

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

THE ESSENTIALS

This Coupe DeVille was bought new by Mr. Herbert Lyman from Pinole, Ca on June 18, 1966.  It was purchased at the Richmond Motor Company in Richmond, Ca.  For the next 44 years it stayed in Mr. Lyman’s family.

The original white livery has been recently repainted and the original red leather interior is very well preserved.  The stereo has been updated with a hidden high output system using a smart phone as the “head unit”.  The sub-woofer is the only obvious component as it is hidden in the trunk.

Mechanically the car is excellent.  Having one long-term owner it has been well maintained since new.  The air conditioning was drained of freon during a recent service and would require new freon added to make it function.  The Coupe DeVille was lowered and has red pin-striped details.  In addition, the radials have wide white walls but will need to be replaced in the near future.

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!
