Classic Car Facts


If you are looking for one of the lowest mileage 1978 Cadillac Sedan DeVilles in existence, this is it!  Having just 18,700 original miles from new, this Cadillac even smells new!

Finished in Arizona Beige, this Cadillac’s finish has a beautiful luster that is further accentuated by an Elk Grain Beige padded vinyl roof and brown accent striping.  The vinyl roof is soft and supple, and is devoid of imperfections.  Similarly, the chrome and brightwork is in excellent condition.

The interior tells a similar story, and shows as new.  Its complementing Beige velour interior shows beautifully, and the carpeting, door panels, dashboard, and steering wheel are without wear.  In addition to the standard complement of Cadillac features, including power windows, power door locks, 6-way power driver’s seat, power antenna, and automatic climate control, this Cadillac is equipped with the following optional items:

  • Tilt and telescope steering wheel
  • AM/FM stereo radio with seek and scan features
  • Cruise control
  • Controlled cycle windshield wipers

All power options work as they should.  The air conditioning works and is cold, but not ice cold on a hot day.  In addition, minor imperfections in the finish and brightwork do not detract from the overall appearance of the car.

This Cadillac has the power to match its refined looks.  Powered by its original 4-barrel carbureted 425 CID V-8 engine and 3-speed automatic transmission, this powertrain is one of the last big block engines to power a Cadillac.  Adequately powered for the size of the car, this engine has a power, smoothness, and reliability that makes it desired among Cadillac collectors.  The ride is absolutely silent and the suspension affords cloud-like comfort.  This beautiful car runs and drives as well as it looks. During a recent 1,000 mile road trip, this car performed flawlessly.

This car was purchased by the most recent owner in 1979 and remained in his immediate family until 2016.  It was rustproofed when new and has always received the best of care.  Recent updates included the following:

  • One month old factory correct 1.3” American Classic whitewall tires from Coker (only 1,000 miles)
  • New headliner
  • New battery
  • New radiator
  • New rear air shocks
  • New ABS plastic rear fender fillers

Included with sale is all of the documentation most coveted by collectors:

  • Owner’s manual in original plastic folder
  • 1978 Cadillac and tire warranty booklets
  • 1978 Cadillac Maintenance Schedule

Lovers of originality will also appreciate that the original Goodyear tires and Cadillac keys will also be included with sale.

If an ultra low mileage Cadillac that looks, drives, and smells like new is what you desire, this 1978 Sedan Deville is the one for you!
