1979 Cadillac DeVille Coupe gas V8 from North America
A reliable, gas-guzzling beast
This car was in very good condition for the time it sat unused. It hadn't run in eight years, and the battery, oil, coolant, tires, gas and oil filters and the wiper blades need replacing. Pretty good, considering that they probably haven't been replaced during the cars entire life.
This car hasn't driven anywhere yet, but it will. This is my first car, I received it from my great-grandmother and it's a dream. All the work that I've done to it so far has been to flush the radiator, buy a new battery, and put in a few gallons of gas. With just a little starting fluid in the carb. it started up almost immediately.
With all the other good reviews on '79 caddies, I'm looking forward to what this thing can do.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

That's really strange. You see, last August, my great-grandfather died and I got his '79 Cadillac Coup de Ville. Since then, I've been on multiple websites trying to figure out how much it's worth and where I can find parts for restoration, but never found another. So, it's just very strange to find another person with the same vehicle who received it in the same way. That's all.

I'd be interested in finding out how much you plan to sell it for (I wrote the article). I was going for like $2500 after all the work I will do to it. Heck the thing has power everything, climate control, cruise control, and the dang 7.0 liter engine is worth its weight in gold due to how much power it put out. I ripped out the headliner on the roof. I don't know if you've had any problems with yours, but mine was nasty. That foam stuff got everywhere, and it sagged down so far it covered up my eyes. Anyway, let me know.
