There's no better example of GM's styling and engineering prowess than the 1968 Cadillac Coupe De Ville with its padded vinyl roof, elegant interiors of Sierra-grain leather and fine Cadillac luxuries - Drive one like this particular example and you will see why - its hard to believe that this car was built almost 50 years ago! These cars bristled with the latest in modern appointments and had few rivals in the luxury market and were purchased only by the very privileged few. The all new 472/375HP V8 engine with 525 foot pounds of torque was introduced in 1968, it was the biggest and smoothest engine built by Cadillac to date and it proved unsurpassed in the industry as the largest engine ever put in a production passenger motor car and provided both sparkling acceleration, yet also quiet and effortless highway cruising, almost like having two engines! The car was also redesigned to match its modern engine with a new grille with finely spaced horizontal grille bars and distinct parking and headlamp lights.
This particular car oozes pride of ownership with the the floor boards, trunk and all the typical rust-prone areas solid and rust-free and the car has absolutely no signs of any accidents and seemingly all original paint - obviously an always cherished 'Garage Queen' since new. The 472/375HP 4 barrel V8 engine is extremely strong and powerful and sounds absolutely magnificent and this particular car drives absolutely magnificently - must be driven to be believed - does not miss a beat and purrs like a kitten - drives straight as an arrow with no strange road wobbles, shakes or rattles - a truly remarkable daily driver that still drives as it must have the day it left the showroom floor almost 50 years ago! The transmission shifts smoothly through the gears and the car is an absolute pleasure to drive! The car has always obviously always been well maintained and reportedly has only 50K original miles and only two Oregon state owners since new! All the options work as they should including all the power options, the power windows, power seats and the factory air conditioning! The car boasts its original spare wheel and jack in the truck!
This is an extraordinarily rare opportunity to own a great daily driving example of a mostly completely original 1968 Cadillac Coupe de Ville showing pride of ownership throughout in great driving and looking condition with almost every possible factory available option installed and with a believed to be 50K original miles!
