Vehicle Specs

The Cadillac Deville was always a popular model and 1972 was no exception. A modest frontal revision placed more emphasis on horizontal grille blades. The parking lamps were moved from the bumper to between the square bezel headlamps, which were now set wider apart. V-shaped emblems made a return on the hood and deck lid. New standard features included a bumper impact system, automatic parking brake release, passenger assist straps, and flow through the ventilation system. New DeVille signature script was affixed to the sides of the rear roof panels. Sales reached a record 194,811.

Our mantra here is "you never know what's going to come through the door next". This holds true on so many levels, from flawless antiques to modern-day muscle. Today we squeezed in all 227.4" of Cadillac length to offer up for you with original 30,162 miles! The A/C and all power accessories are functioning as designed.

Clean Gold Metallic Paint covers the miles of square footage that is this car. The paint is nice, and all chrome trimmings are shiny and not pitted or rusted. The V-shaped front grille with the hood atop of it emulating that V takes your eye forever until you reach the windshield. The rear trunk lid is much the same and can accept the contents of a small New York apartment with ease. A tight and clean brown vinyl-covered hardtop shows no rust underneath and all glass is clear and clean. Rear fender skirts and those large vertical taillights melting into the bumper on the back are iconic Cadillac design cues. Turbine outer style Cadillac wheel covers have thin Blackwall rubber all around them and the tires are like new.

Black is the interior color, and all surfaces show cleanly. The driver's door panel houses all the controls for the windows and driver's mirror, as well as a handy door-mounted wiper/washer box within ergonomic reach. Turning our attention to the interior seating arrangements, we note vinyl covered and buttoned buckets with a fold-down central armrest. The seats are powered to get it just. A large couch-like rear bench in matching cloth and this bench also has arms on either side that harbor the essential ashtrays and window toggles. Upfront the long wide dash is in padded black vinyl and has some wood appliqué running through the center of it. All gauges are clean and clear plastic coverings are looking good. An AM/FM radio sits within the driver's reach. A beautiful new carpet floods the large floor plan, and a black headliner in great shape shows above.

The big mill, which is a 472ci V8, is original to this car and sits in this well-cared-for engine bay. A single 4-barrel carburetor liberally feeds this engine, and it puts power rearward to a TH400 3-speed automatic transmission.

All are structurally sound with the frame, suspension, and floors showing a mixture of surface rust and black paint/undercoating. Power disc brakes are up front and power drums for the rear. Plenty of aged patina surfaces under here but all are strong and solid.

There's nothing in the world that compares to being behind the wheel of an early 70's American luxury car, it's akin to driving your couch around town. With a twist of the key, I was off in the living room like the bliss that is Cadillac. The car handled our test track with ease. Good cornering, excellent braking, and torque-laden acceleration. It was a smooth ride with a ton of power accessories to enjoy and fondle. All of the functions worked swimmingly including the AC, and the only thing missing from my couch on wheels was my TV remote and my favorite comfy slippers.

Nicely preserved and well cared for sums up this record-setting piece of Detroit luxury. This car is ready and your pals to load up and explore the forgotten paths of our nation.
