No, this 2000 Cadillac DeVille won’t take you beyond our Earth, but it was owned by the first American to orbit our planet. This Cadillac DeVille happens to have been owned by John Glenn, who recently passed away at the age of 95, and the ex-astronaut turned Ohio senator had a serious love for Cadillacs.
Despite 100,000 DeVilles sold in the year 2000, Glenn’s example up for sale obviously carries value with it. Not many Earthlings have the opportunity to professionally fly into orbit around the blue planet. It’s also a very well-equipped example, too.
Glenn ordered the DeVille in DHS trimmings, which included $7,500 worth of options, including night vision and the Bronzemist exterior hue. He sold the car in 2006 to its current owner who promised to take care of the DeVille for as long as Glenn was alive. Now that Glenn has left this world, it’s time to pass it on to the next caretaker.
The Cadillac will be sold off at the Fort Lauderdale Auctions America showing, according to CarScoops, where it is valued to sell between $50,000 and $75,000. It may be the only chance you have to get as close as possible to reaching for the stars.
