1979 Cadillac Sedan DeVille 7.0L 425ci V8 / Hydramatic


Description


Sterling Blue Metallic is a great color on these cars, and contrasts well with the light blue leather. Paint condition is pretty impressive, especially considering that no panels have ever been resprayed. Cosmetic blemishes are limited to the following: there are some touched-up chips on the passenger rear quarter flare lip, a verrrry light ding on the lower passenger rear door, a couple hairline cracks in the corners of the rear plastic filler panels, and a bit of oxidation on the base of the antenna. All things considered, a very nice survivor. This car has been kept in the bone-dry state of North Dakota and it shows. There is no bubbling in the lower corners of the body panels or along the rockers, very tidy. Panel fitment is spot on and doors open and close nice and smooth. Polished trim pieces are all shiny and mirror-like with the exception of the aforementioned antenna base. Bumpers looks excellent, rubber is still black and shiny, not grey and tired. Glass and light lenses are all clear and crack-free, and the windows have a slight tint applied. Vinyl top shows minimal signs of age—no discoloring, fraying, scuffs, peeling, etc. This car will come with a block heater as well, and the outlet plug can be seen protruding from the grille.
Dash top is in excellent shape, no cracks, warping, or marks from any adhesives. Carpeting is original and somewhat tired….a bit dirty/discolored, but not frayed or pilling. Still plush. Floormats are much of the same, still original and intact, but the color has faded a bit. Radio is functional, fan/heat/defrost is functional, air conditioning compressor does kick on (R12) but does not blow cold. Lights and signals are all functional (including the fender-mounted indicators), wipers and wiper sprayers are functional. The headliner is clean and tight, but is buttoned-up in place rather than actually professionally stuck up there like as would be factory. The EZ Ride air ride setup is controlled by two switches mounted below the climate control, one switch for the front and one for the rear.
This car runs and drives very well. The car fires right up first turn, idles cool and steady, pulls through the gears with no hesitation or stuttering, shifts smoothly and on-time, brakes straight and effectively, and tracks straight down the road. The ride quality is actually quite good despite the aftermarket suspension. Still feels like a Cadillac!
