1967 Cadillac Deville 2017-07-03T08:26:34+00:00

Project Description

OVERVIEW

The ’67 Cadillac DeVille is widely considered to be perfect balance of the over-the-top decadence of the late ‘50s to early ‘60s high-finned Caddies and the staid, reserved late-’70s models. While those classic fins are still present, they’ve been reined in a bit. Inside, the De Ville now offered 147 different upholstery options including a wide range of cloth and leather colors to custom tailor each car to the owner. As you’d expect, the ride is comfortable and cloud-like.

Drop the top and you can experience the De Ville in a whole new way. With the sun on your face and the wind in your hair, the big Caddy is the perfect boulevard cruiser.

A LOOK IN THE REAR VIEW

When the Cadillac Coupe De Ville rolled out in 1959, it took the world by storm. Although Cadillac had prominently featured tail fins on their cars for a few years already, the De Ville took it to the next level. The highly sculpted, sharp-edged fins on the back of the 1959 De Villes instantly became iconic of late-50’s and early-60’s excess. Cadillac followed up the success of the original Coupe De Ville by taming some of the styling back for a more streamlined, cohesive design in 1961.

For 1964, the Coupe De Ville was redesigned yet again, reducing the fins further and taking on a more chiseled look overall. Although the fins got smaller, the rest of the car actually got longer. To keep up with the extra mass, Cadillac added a new 472 cubic inch V8 offering 375 horsepower in 1968 to fill in alongside the tried and true 429 cubic inch V8 that had been in service since 1963. The big 472 cubic stayed in production as the Coupe De Ville’s standard engine until 1975, when it was replaced by a 500 cubic inch V8 instead. This was needed to cope with the extra mass and luxury, as the Coupe De Ville’s weight had increased to a whopping 5,400 pounds.

WORD ON THE STREET

“Cadillac was at its legendary pinnacle in the early through mid 1960s, considered the choice far and wide as the best choice for your luxury buying dollar. With strength, style and even a decent amount of substance, you could really say that early 1960s Cadillacs were the standard to measure luxury cars to.  That amount of clout allowed Cadillac to get away with minor missteps like the short deck Park Avenue sedan above.”

Laurence Jones, Curbside Classic

“Chiseled design. Lovely old barge. One-finger steering. Brakes that will put you through the windshield. Once you get used to it, there is not much nicer on a crisp, cool fall evening with the top down and someone special next to you.”

Terra Nova, BringATrailer.com

“The Caddy was gorgeous, with creased, deep-draw body panels and a presence that suggested bold, regal sportiness, the kind of car made for an architect, brain surgeon, or NFL coach.”
