A classic Cadillac is a surefire conversation starter. And not many models can challenge the kind of road presence and outright suave of a Cadillac Sedan de Ville. The Cadillac de Ville started life out as trim level, before morphing into its own model line from the “Series 62.” The car featured here is a four-door 1968 Cadillac Sedan de Ville, built with the same wheelbase as its predecessor, but debuting a new design language. The car featured here is a 1968 model produced two years into the third-generation de Ville’s production run. This immaculate example resides in Florida, with 55,000 miles on the clock.
The third-generation de Ville saw the design take a more straight-edged approach to the luxury sedan. The sedan features pillar-less doors, for an unobstructed glass area when viewed in profile. The upright headlight array, with the twin lamps stacked on top of each other, gives the front-end a more commanding and upright stance. And the gold that this example is finished in perfectly represents the period. The period-correct theme of the car is set off nicely with whitewall tires, while the roof is wrapped in vinyl — a sought-after feature when these cars were new. The interior is kept equally period, and features a brown color theme, with leather bench seats, both front, and rear. The passenger compartment featured\s some luxury modern conveniences for the time, including electric power windows, electric power seats, and air conditioning.
This 1968 Cadillac de Ville is powered by a 472ci V8 engine mated to an automatic transmission delivering power to the rear wheels and is shifted via a column-mounted shifter. This engine was rated at a healthy 375 horsepower and 525 lb-ft torque when the car left the factory.
