Just in time for summer, GR Auto Gallery is pleased to offer this high quality, highly original 1968 Cadillac Deville Convertible as a must consider for anyone looking for a large, beautiful, top-down cruiser to soak in the summer fun. This 1968 Deville Convertible is a rare find in this condition. The car remained in the a state of constant care by its original owner from purchase date of February 28, 1968 until he finally parted with the car in 2011. As a result, the car remains in excellent original condition with the exception of one professional repaint in its original factory color; GM paint code 20, Artic Blue. The Dark blue leather interior remains original and is one of most posh interiors offered in its day and since. The body is long and straight featuring signature stacked headlights, classic rear tail fins, fender skirts, excellent original wheel covers, and excellent chrome. The original interior is fully optioned including: Power windows, power locks, power seats, automatic climate control, factory stereo, power antenna, cruise control, front “his and her” ash tray, rear left and right ash trays with electric lighters (Power outlets in todays terms), etc. All the windows work flawlessly and the huge convertible top retracts and closes in seconds, not minutes. Underneath the hood lies the original 472 V8 producing 375 horsepower and a towering 525 ftlbs of torque. This is hooked to its silky smooth TH400 automatic transmission and rear wheel drive. The engine area and engine itself remains original and cosmetically unrestored.
The drivability of this Cadillac is to die for. The big V8 runs excellent, smooth and powerful, the steering and suspension offer the smoothest of smooth rides, and the low, muted luxurious exhaust note produces a sound that is exclusive to large Cadillacs.
Notable recent services in 2011 include: Updated A/C to R134A and replaced blower motor and all hoses, radio speakers, new ball joints, new alternator and voltage regulator, transmission service including: filter, pan gasket, shift seal and tail shaft seal. Most recently this year: Re-cored radiator, new thermostat, new power steering pump, belts and trunk seal.
This 1968 Cadillac Deville convertible is perfect for dramatic entrances as it holds huge stage presence when ever seen. It is a perfect summer car with plenty of room for friends for a night on the town or for the whole family on any adventure. Car comes complete with original owners manual with original sleeve, full size spare, jack, tire iron and spare tire cover.
