1968 Cadillac DeVille Convertible example


Recommended Posts

This is almost exactly what I am looking for after I get the garage space:

1968 Cadillac Deville Convertible for sale in our Louisville KY showroom. This is a great example of what a classic cruising survivor car can be. The exterior is of the long sleek body is covered in the bright red enamel paint. Under the long hood hides a very powerful yet smooth 375 horse 472 CID motor. Getting all that power to the ground is a Turbo 400 Hyrdra-Matic transmission that provides a crisp throttle response. Put this combination of power and finesse together and it made the ‘68 Cadillac a “true drivers car". Open the doors and you will see a nice white interior that goes well with exterior. The leather adorned seats are plush and in excellent shape for a car that is almost 50 years old. Hit the button on the power top and you will be seeing blue skies in no time. This particular Cadillac Convertible has all the options available in ‘68 including 8 Way Power Adjustable seats, Power steering, Power Brakes, Power Windows, Power Locks, Heater, Defroster, Cornering Lights, Power Top, and Seat Belts. To view this 1968 Cadillac DeVille Convertible in greater detail, including a HD video, visit our Louisville KY location at www.GatewayClassicCars.com. - See more at: http://www.gatewayclassiccars.com/displaycar?stock=648&location=LOU#sthash.VVREB57y.dpuf


There are some aspects that need freshening, but this is a nice driver at a reasonable price and is my new benchmark for comparison. My specific criticism here is the chrome seems ready for freshening. I would also like to see some red trim, alternating red and white panels, or candy-stripe instead of the plain white seat treatment, but at least the seats and interior seem to be similar to stock. The exhaust would have to be redone, but may be true dual?

No way to tell the exact condition without careful inspection. I appreciate the inclusion of video.

This is a bit of a problem:

Mileage: 2000 (unknown)

The 68 apparently had the emblem on the nose but not a hood ornament? The cars with both seem redundant to me, so one or the other seems better.

Think they will send it out from Louisville on a truck and take the Duke in trade (j/k) ?
