I'm looking at the picture of the car I'm about to buy right now 68 cadi Deville. White on White. Your right sexy is the word it's a drop top also. I'm not worried about the gas just all the girls that are gonna be riding in my huge back seat!
I bought a 1966 Deville convertible in 1980 for $2,000. With 53,000 miles on it, it drove like new. However, gas mileage was 8 MPG. The first day I drove the car, I could see the gas gauge dropping as I drove.
Powder blue with a blue leather interior. My first Cadillac at age 28. I felt I had arrived. I owned the car until 1984, when I bought a new Camaro. I must have been out of my mind to sell that car. The car needed many repairs in the 4 years I owned it, but it is the only car that I wish I had kept.
I had a 1967 Cadillac Sedan De Ville 429 cid until 1974, and it got roughly 14 mpg in town driving and 18-19 on the highway. During the gas shortage in 73, I went easy on the pedal and got almost 16 around town. I know age affects gas mileage, but I still wonder if maybe your 472 isn't badly carboned up.
Whenever I have a dream where I'm driving somewhere, it's always that gorgeous Cadillac that I dream I'm driving; one hand on the steering wheel with the Cadillac crest in the center, glancing over at the "sterling silver" Cadillac script in the center of the dash, hearing the tuned notes of the distinctive horn. The exterior was Athenian Blue Firemist with a black vinyl top. The interior was black Duchess cloth and leather, with bright metal surrounding the windows and windshield and a stitched headliner that never sagged. I've had some fine Cadillacs since then, but they never quite matched this one.
