1983 Cadillac Coupe DeVille
1983 Cadillac Coupe Deville
The vision for the Cadillac is based on precision engineering and the complete luxury experience. This is the reason why Cadillac is one of the finest cars ever manufactured in the United States. This tradition will carry on throughout its manufacturing history, and to this day, Cadillac still remains to be America's finest luxury vehicles. Ford's vision of precision manufacturing led to the ultimate reliability of his vehicles. Therefore, Cadillac's reputation preceded itself as the better-made automobile compared to its competitors.
Cadillac has always been synonymous with success, and this example from the early 80's bleeds it in black with burgundy interior. A 2-owner car from the same family, she is a survivor, with original paint, and interior and 77,506 original miles. All original, all standing tall and long and awaiting a new caretaker.
Original tuxedo black shows it age with patina, dimpling and fading. It is far from a disaster, however is rust free, but just not as shiny as it once was. Original bumpers and grille are nicely preserved rust and dimple free chrome, and plenty of it to highlight the black painted exterior. A padded shiny well preserved vinyl faux leather pattern landau top covering the rear of the roof, and remains intact with no faults. Painted on dual thin red pinstripes, and some snappy chromed wire wheel covers, and we are into Caddy heaven right out of 1983. Just imagine pulling up in this classic the looks you'll get. AN apropos bumper sticker could read “My other car is not a Classic”!
Burgundy leather, and plenty of it in large front buckets and a rear bench. It has a nice patina to it all and is wonderfully worn over time looking. Plenty of wood applique for the dash, and all the power fixings are available at your fingertips. Nice thick pile carpet floods the floors, and a tight red headliner is above.
A 4100 HT 4.1 Liter V8 is crammed into the engine bay and is looking just great! Well maintained and detailed over time and it shows. Digital Electronic Fuel Injection and a 200R4 4-speed automatic transmission is on back with a 10-bolt rear axle setup.
Clean and structurally sound with rusticating, and slight surface rust in a few areas, however none certainly of concern. Independent coil springs for the front suspension, and 4 link with coil springs for the rear are the suspension. Power disc brakes for the front, and power drums for the rear are noted.
This car performed beautifully on our test track passing with flying colors (well, mainly tuxedo black and burgundy!). All functions were working well, and there is a lot of car to move around, although it does it very well and easily with all the power accessories and conveniences.
2 owners here kids, same family, original paint which could use a respray or you could leave it with the character it already has and carries with the design. Low miles relatively well kept, and a survivor if you will. The early 1980's were tough times for automakers and this Caddy certainly makes the best of the times with its large design and beautiful and comfortable styling for the interior. Why drive something everyone else has? Why not a Caddy classic!?
