This is a very well preserved 1969 Cadillac Coupe DeVille which has been owned by our client for the past 13 years. He and his wife have been longtime members of the Classic Car Club of America and the Cadillac LaSalle Club and have enjoyed a beautiful collection of important cars. With the exception of paint color change, this Cadillac is completely original and a survivor.
This Coupe DeVille spent much of its early life in and around Grand Rapids, MI. In 2007, its current owner purchased the car with just 26,000 miles, and shortly thereafter brought the vehicle to Tucson, Arizona, where it has live since. Originally painted Colonial Yellow (5036L), this Cadillac was repainted a vibrant fire engine red by the previous owner. Despite the age of the paint job, it shows quite well.
Since arriving in Arizona, this Coupe DeVille has been very well cared for and driven a mere 13,000 miles in the last 13 years. Interestingly, a dealer sticker was found in the glovebox from Harvey Cadillac Company of Grand Rapids, MI. The sticker shows the car sold in 2002 with 21,955 miles, suggesting the previous owner only drove it about 4,000 miles over 5 years.
This Cadillac has been very well maintained, which is supported by the abundance of paperwork and service receipts (see supporting photo). Though certainly more of a driver’s quality, rather than show car, this Coupe DeVille did win First Place Touring Class in the Cadillac LaSalle Grand National Meet Las Vegas 2016.
Though it is now about a 13-year old repaint, this car still shows beautifully and runs very nicely. The bright red (paint code unknown) has shine and luster, but is not without some minor cracking, particularly just below the C-Pillar, as shown in the inspection report. The cracking is not very deep, and likely from paint being applied too thick in that area. That being said, it is very hard to notice, and likely would only be detected by an astute eye. The chrome and stainless overall are in very good to excellent condition, with lots of shine and very few imperfections. Today this Coupe DeVille would perform well at local and regional car shows and touring events.
The interior is overall very well preserved. The attractive white or cream leather with black carpet and dash are tasteful and are complete with six-way power operated 60/40 split front seats. The dash, door panels and headliner are overall very good. The driver’s door is missing a light cover by the release handle. The front leather seats have some minor cracking, but no rips or stains and remain soft and supple. There are multiple, small nicks in the door armrest material on both doors. Nearly all interior components work as they should, including the radio and power operated antenna. In fact, the only thing we noted inoperable was the clock. It was also noted by the owner that the fuel gauge is inaccurate below 1/4 tank, however we were unable to prove this. The AM/FM stereo and automatic antenna work well.
The white vinyl top is also believed to be original and overall very good. There are some very small tears at the bottom of the C-Pillar, but otherwise it is free of blemishes and a very true, bright white color. We show these small imperfections in the photo gallery.
The monstrous 472 CID V8 produces 375 hp and 525 ft. lbs. of torque. Needless to say, this Coupe DeVille provides a smooth and effortless driving experience. The overall mechanical condition of this Cadillac is very good. The A/C blows cold and strong, though the heater does not work. The heater core developed a leak, and instead of ripping out the dash, the owner chose to simply bypass the hoses. Beyond that, this Cadillac is ready to be enjoyed. Though we recommend an oil change and normal servicing before extensive use.
The chassis shows that it is rust free (with minimal normal surface rust present), and there is some red over-spray in certain areas as seen in the photo gallery. Nonetheless, it is in nice condition today for touring and general use. It also comes with an extra set of keys and an owners manual.
Details about this Cadillac’s condition are included in the 158-point third party inspection which is published as part of this listing, and it is available for viewing at our Phoenix showroom.
The Hagerty Price Guide reflects a No. 3 value of $12,400 and a No. 2 value of $19,200. We believe this to be closer to a 3 given its condition.
