Search ‘best classic Cadillacs to own’ and you can almost guarantee that the 1975 Coupe DeVille will be in the top ten.

This outstanding example has been maintained in excellent condition and is likely one of the best examples available in Europe. Imported in 2011 from the original owner in Detroit, it was later brought up to its current standard by its previous owner, an expert in car restoration. Its looks, and the sound of the big V8, turn heads wherever it goes.

The paint and bodywork are excellent, with the original pin-striping signatured from the factory. There are no signs of corrosion or other material defects, although there is some very minor stone chipping at very close inspection.
The chrome is spotless and the rubber bumper inserts are clean and without cracks or ageing. Rear plastic bumper filler panels were replaced by reproduction units by the previous owner and are in excellent condition.

All the transparencies are clear, without cracks or fogging, including the lights which all function and have no lens cracks.
The vinyl roof is in particularly good condition and has been kept under cover and shrouded so there are no splits, cracks or faded areas. Weather seals are also all intact and in excellent conditions and so there are no leaks.

The car was surveyed informally by a car restoration specialist and assessed as having come from a dry state, as the lack of water exposure and road grit/salt accounts for the excellent condition of the bodywork and lack of corrosion. Nevertheless it was fully rust-proofed by a previous owner.

This Cadillac runs beautifully, having again been restored by the previous owner and looked after carefully ever since. The 8.2L V8 engine will understandably drink fuel, but sounds incredible and the car will happily cruise along on the motorway at 70mph. Much like the exterior, the engine was expertly restored with all suspect parts replaced. Does not leak or overheat.

Being a large car, it is not spritely but it handles well and runs true, with smooth steering that does not feel heavy or spongy and suspension in good condition, providing a beautifully smooth ride. The car has large disc brakes on the front wheels and sits on correctly sized Uniroyal white band tyres that complete the iconic look of this vehicle.

The interior of the car has been described as like a living room! The red velour seats and the rest of the interior trim match the car’s excellent quality, and the attention to detail in her restoration really shows with no squeaking or rattling evident.

All in a car that rolled off the production line in 1975, and all still in perfect working order. However, the digital/analogue clock - while included - has stopped working. This is an easy repair according to YouTube

This Cadillac’s original purchase documents and owner handbook are all present, pristine and in the original wallet, alongside the import documentation and expired MOTs, although the car is MOT exempt due to its historic value.
Also included is the original, unused 22 carat gold spare key that came with the original purchase.

I do not believe you will find a better example of this iconic Cadillac for sale anywhere in Europe. Few can have been given as much love as this car.
The 1975 Coupe Deville is a classic and historic car from a bygone era, when mechanical things were built with love, to last forever.
It is a dream to own and drive.
