Seven Hills Motorcars is very glad to offer this 1969 Cadillac DeVille convertible
for sale.  We have this car priced as one of the best values for 60's Cadillac convertible on the market right now.  It is good driver, rides like a dream, and has a ton of potential.  The highly desirable and attractive color scheme of San Mateo Red over Medium Red leather is original to the car, verified by the trim tag pictured below.  Please peruse all of the photos below to get a true sense of the condition of this DeVille.

This Cadillac rolled off the assembly line during the third week of September in 1968, verified by the code "09C" on the trim tag, loaded with options such as "Soft Ray" glass, AM/FM Radio, 6 way front power seat, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, power windows, and air conditioning.


 

 

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 with the State of Ohio.  With many years of focused experience I specialize in 1963 to 2082 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 exterior looks great from a small distance, but up close there are blemishes and imperfections around the car.  The paint has a nice luster and fine shine.  This Cadillac basically looks in person just as it does in the photos.  There are no major spots or blemishes in the paint that have been intentionally excluded from the photos.  I have done my best to accurately and objectively photograph the car and show all of the flaws, but some are too small or cannot be picked up by the camera.  One should really view the car in person to get the best and most accurate idea of what the car really looks like.  The car does have rust issues with the frame and body.  The convertible top is in decent shape, but shows its age with some wear, especially around the edges.  The power top works well with no binding in the mechanism and the top operates properly.  Please note that the car still has the correct convertible top glass.  It has not been replaced with a cheaper plastic window. 

All of the side glass on this car is original and correct as all pieces predates the car's body build date of the third week of September 1968.  Original glass is a good indication that the car has not been in a major accident and never sustained significant damage. 

Window Date Codes

Driver's Front: AX - The "A" denotes September and "X" 1968 so the front driver's side window was made in September of 1968.

Driver's Rear: AX - The "A" denotes September and "X" 1968 so the rear driver's side window was made in September of 1968.

Passenger's Front: AX - The "A" denotes September and "X" 1968 so the front passenger's side window was made in February of 1968.

Passenger's Rear: AX - The "A" denotes September and "X" 1968 so the rear passenger's side window was made in September of 1968.

 

Interior

 

The interior in this Cadillac is in good condition.  The seats are in fine shape with no split seam and are not excessively worn.  There is a hole in the left front lower portion of the front bench .  The carpet looks great no stains, holes, or rips.  The door panels are in relatively nice shape and the arm pads are not all cracked up, which is a very common problem for this era Cadillac, but they are a bit wavy.  The dash has some cracks, which are visible in the photos below.  The power seat clicks and sometimes the motor runs, but does not work.  The aftermarket radio works well. 


Mechanical

This Cadillac is a decent driver as is, but has some room for improvement.  The Cadillac V8 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 and drives well on the road; I have not driven the car on the highway.  The transmission shifts well throughout the power band.  The brakes are responsive and stop the car well.  The car ran cool and has never overheated while driving it around.  The exterior lights work, the turn signals work, and even the indicators in the dash work.  All of the power windows work.  They are slow and sometimes need a hand, but work from the both the driver's door and their perspective individuals switches.  The right rear window will only do down from the switch in the right rear.  With all of that said, the car could stand some improvements all around.  It has a few issues such as some of the options and accessories do not work, the a/c, wipers, power locks, on hard left turns sometimes the engine will cut out, some lights, a very common exhaust leak, and other troubles with the car that I have possibly overlooked so I would suggest that any perspective buyer inspect the car in person if possible.  The odometer and speedometer work, but the needle was sticky last time I drove the car.  The horn works with an aftermarket button visible in the photos.  With everything said, the combination of power from the 472ci V8 and the silky smooth ride make this Cadillac a pleasure to drive, especially with top down on a sunny day.


Overall
Condition

 

This Cadillac is in good condition overall with massive potential.  It turns heads and gets A TON of attention going down the road.  Convertible Cadillac’s are highly collectible and make excellent cars to drive.  Convertible classic cars, especially Cadillac's 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.  As always, 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. 

 

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