The Cadillac Coupe DeVille is one of those absolutely iconic nameplates, and for good reason. With eye-popping style, enormous size, and a high-class attitude, these machines left an indelible mark on the Cadillac brand. Now, a “near original” example from 1960 is up for grabs.
Listed for sale by AutoBarn Classic cars, this 1960 Cadillac Cadillac Coupe DeVille is every inch a head-turner, featuring gleaming, classic styling. The ride is low, while the lines are long and sleek. And of course, we can’t forget those awesome rear tail fins.
According to the vehicle’s description, this particular example has received “minor restoration work.” That includes the Persian Sand paint job draped across the body panels, which has seen “only a few touch-up blends” over the years. Complementing the paint is the original chrome trim, while whitewall tires are mounted on the factory wheels and wheel covers.
Up front, this two-door cruiser is motivated by a 390 cubic-inch OHV V8 engine, which is fed via a Rochester carburetor. All told, the ‘eight spins out 325 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. It’s unknown if this is a numbers-matching engine.
Regardless, good noises exit via a new dual exhaust, while a four-speed Hydra-Matic automatic transmission handles the cog swaps.
Inside, we find bench seating front and back, with Beaumont Beige upholstery. Up top, the original headliner remains intact. This Cadillac Coupe DeVille also came equipped with a nice assortment of standard equipment, such as air conditioning, a Wonderbar AM radio, power steering, and power drum brakes.
Critically, this Caddy sports just 6,095 miles on the odometer. We think it looks fantastic, and will surely grab eyeballs no matter where it shows up.
