THE CADILLAC DEVILLE

As America ushered in the beginning of the 1970s and the dawn of the Disco Era, Cadillac would soon find itself at the very top of the American automobile market. Although Lincoln and Cadillac appealed to the same customers and had a similar price range, for the 1970 model year, Lincoln was outgunned at every front. Unparalleled in comfort and status—in the driveway or at the country club—a Cadillac was the only sensible choice. By 1970, the DeVille's engine had increased from 429 cubic inches to a massive 472 cubic inches overhead-valve V-8 engine. This mighty Cadillac motor was rated at approximately 375 horsepower, all of which were needed, because even the lightest of 1970 Cadillac models tipped the scales at more than 4,500 pounds.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This sizable 1970 Cadillac DeVille Convertible is about as big as Detroit went to date. The low and wide design is unmistakably 1970s, and while the Hydra-Matic automatic transmission ensures comfortable cruising, the big 472 cubic inch (7.7 Liter) V8 has plenty of power on tap to feed the rear wheels. This well-optioned Cadillac was built at GM's Detroit during the final production-year of the third generation DeVille Cadillac and is believed to have been kept in the mild Southwestern climate of Arizona for many decades.

Today the car has feeling of a sound and solid car, which has been well looked-after over the years. The white exterior color has been resprayed, while many original finishes can be found intact throughout the car, along with ID plates and factory stampings. The chrome, stainless trim and brightwork appear to be original. The comprehensive history file offered with the car contains receipts and work orders for restauration work, which includes a new leather interior recently fitted. A Holley 'Sniper EFI' electronic fuel injection system has replaced the original 4-barrel carburetor for reliability.
