Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this 1966 Cadillac DeVille convertible
for sale.  This car is in very nice driver condition, rides like a dream, and needs nothing at all to be enjoyed.  The classic white over dark blue color combination is dignified, handsome, and a perfect compliment to this car.  The paint has a dazzling shine and the interior looks fabulous.  This car rolled off the assembly line during the fourth week of December in 1965 absolutely loaded with options such as automatic climate control, power door locks, "Soft Ray" glass, AM/FM Radio, 6 way front power seat, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, power windows, and auto dimming headlights. 
 


 

As a side note, this DeVille is not a dealer auction vehicle.  We hand pick each car after careful inspection.  Our cars come from owners who expect their cars to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did.  We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected.  Please take the time to examine each picture.  We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase.  If you have a question about the Cadillac, just give us a call.

about our dealership
Seven Hills Motorcars is Cincinnati's premier Corvette and Cadillac specialist and a licensed and registered auto dealer by the State of Ohio.  With many years of focused experience I specialize in 1963 to 1982 Corvettes and 1953 to 1976 Cadillacs.  There is no other dealership that can better meet your needs if you would like to buy, sell, or just find out more information about your Corvette or Cadillac.  This is simply a one man operation, and this is not my full time employment.  I do it because I enjoy it.  I am a collector and enthusiast and therefore look for cars that excite me.  I do not purchase at dealer auctions; each car is hand picked by me because it is special or rare to me and because I like it.

Exterior

The white exterior is in very nice driver condition.  The paint has a fine finish and a great luster.  The body has no major dents or dings.  The almost brand new white power convertible top is in excellent condition with no rips or tears.  It also fits well and works smoothly with no strain or binding in the mechanism.  The convertible top boot is included.  It actually fits the car well and has not shrunken like most soft boots.  There are some blemishes around the car that were too small to show up in the photos, but nothing that really stands out from 10 feet away.  This Cadillac does appear to have had some rust repair in the past.  The tires are in like new condition.  The chrome, stainless, and other bright work is in very presentable condition; only the front bumper is a bit cloudy. 

Amazingly, all of the glass on this car is original and correct as all pieces predate the car's body build date of the fourth week of December 1965; this even includes the vent windows.  Original glass is a good indication that the car has not been in a major accident and never sustained significant damage.

Interior

The dark blue interior of this DeVille is in great condition.  The seats look almost brand new with no excessive wear, cracks, or split seams.  The carpet is like new condition as well with no holes, rips, or stains.  The door panels are in very nice condition with no cracks and, unlike many cars of this age, they fit very well and tight to the door.  Also, the arm pads are not cracked or split and show no evidence of repair.  The power seat clicks, but does not move.  The car still retains its original radio.  It will turn on, light up, and crackle, but does not function.


Mechanical

This car is in nice mechanical condition.  There are no issues at all with the drivability of this Cadillac.  The car starts right away every time, runs well, and idles well.  There is no smoke when starting or driving the car.  The car drives great with a very comfortable ride and no strange vibrations.  The car is smooth on the road and highway.  The transmission shifts well throughout the power band.  The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other.  This car is a great cruiser, but is obviously not perfect.  It has a few issues such as some of the options and accessories do not work, the vent windows need a hand to close all the way, leaks, and other miscellaneous problems that do not immediately affect the drivability of the car.  With everything said, the combination of power from the 429ci V8 and the silky smooth ride make this Cadillac and absolute pleasure to drive, especially with top down on a sunny day.


Overall
Condition

 

This Cadillac is in great driver condition.  Convertible Cadillacís are highly collectible and make excellent cars to drive.  Convertible classic cars, especially Cadillacs have quickly appreciated over the past several years and make excellent investments.  One could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than your purchase price.  You can fit your entire family in the vehicle to take them out for the day or evening.  We must disclose that the clear Ohio title indicates the mileage as "nonactual."  As always, the any potential buyer is encouraged to take the time to view the car in person or have it professionally inspected.  We have nothing to hide, that is why we include so many photos.  If there is anything unclear or if you have any questions please feel free email or call.

 

Thank you for looking and please email or call with any questions.
