1975 Cadillac DeVille 502 CU V8 from North America
If you don't have one, get one! You won't be sorry!
Needed a rear transmission gasket.
Needed a seal on oil pan.
Needed new brakes (the ones on it were the originals).
Antenna works, but doesn't go all the way down.
Slight wear on driver's seat.
Headlight adjustment tabs are shot.
I absolutely love this car! I have wanted one of these since I was 10 years old, and I finally have one.
The engine starts up every time, it runs amazingly, it's very easy and inexpensive to fix, and it floats down the road.
The car had been sitting up for a long time when I bought it, so a lot of the rubber seals were shot, but that didn't cost that much to fix. Put on new front brakes, new power steering pump, fixed a few seals like the oil pan gasket and the transmission rear seal, and it's running like a champ.
Frankly, the biggest problem I've had is finding the correct tabs to keep the headlights in adjustment. Also, the A/C blower motor is out, but I'm sure that won't be a huge deal to fix.
I am so happy I bought this car, and can't wait to get it completely restored!
Have yet to figure out how much mileage it gets, but I've driven about 175 miles on 1/2 tank of gas, combo city and highway driving.
My car is a sedan, and I can't wait to add a coupe deVille to my stable!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
