Beautiful DeVille Convertible ... Gorgeous Hunter Green Metallic exterior with coordinating Gold leather interior and top ... Flawless chrome ... Ice cold A/C ...
1970 marked the end of an era for Cadillac—it was the last year it would produce a DeVille convertible. Those who desired open air driving in 1971 would have to look to the smaller front wheel drive Eldorado, which was offered in convertible form through 1976, and again in the 1980s, but Cadillac would never again offer a full-size rear wheel drive convertible. If seeing the 1970 DeVille convertible on the road wasn’t enough to lure potential buyers to showrooms, Cadillac’s sales literature would, promising that “this long, low, brilliant motor car calls for a bright day, refreshing breezes and the open road as no other convertible does.”
This beautiful DeVille convertible is finished in a striking Hunter Green Metallic finish that is laser straight and has a brilliant luster. Its finish contrasts nicely with its coordinating Gold convertible top, leather interior, and pinstriping. Its front and rear bumpers have been recently professionally rechromed, and they exhibit a mirror-like reflection. This classic also features a newer convertible top that is in excellent condition. Its interior shows similarly, with minimal wear on its leather seats, carpeting, and front seat backs. The dash board and interior door panels are free of any cracks and are in very good condition as well, although some interior chrome does exhibit minor pitting. Best of all, this classic runs and drives as beautifully as it looks—its 375 HP 472 CID V-8 moving the car with a smoothness and power befitting a Cadillac.
This Cadillac is fully equipped with all of the luxury and convenience features you would expect, including power windows, seat, and top. Optional features include Sierra grain leather seating areas, tilt and telescope steering wheel, power door locks, and automatic climate control. A newer Panasonic CD player is also included. All power options, including its ice cold air conditioning and clock, work as they should.
Purchased out of Texas, the most recent owner has enjoyed this car for the last five years. Under his ownership, and within the last 3,000 miles, front suspension items, such as the upper A-frame bushings, tie rods, and shocks, have been replaced. In addition, the transmission was rebuilt and the air conditioning compressor was replaced in 2012. Having 115,000 original miles, and owing to the care this classic has received, including regular maintenance and proper storage, this convertible will delight for many years to come.
As Cadillac so eloquently stated, “if freedom of spirit and a taste for luxury” are what you desire, this car is for you.
