Cadillac - Coupe DeVille - 1977

The Coupe DeVille’s 5th generation is a big, brash tribute to the sheer influence of the luxury cars from one of. America’s most legendary brands. From its aggressive, long-nosed bodywork to its fleet of luxurious trims, these enormous 18ft-foot-long motors are a genuine icon of the 70s and 80s. This 1977 example is a factory ‘Triple-white’ version - white paintwork, white vinyl roof and white interior trim. With a Fisher body and Fleetwood interior, this is a real time capsule that’s never been restored, and is thus carrying a glamorous and highly distinguished patina that makes for a truly characterful motor.
