Glad to hear you are enjoying your '69 Cadillac DeVille Convertible! 1969 is probably my favorite year for Cadillacs (I own a '69 Fleetwood Brougham (and a '70 Sedan de Ville & '76 limo) ).
The '69s have a lot going for them... the high-compression (10.5:1) engine not choked with anti-smog equipment, last year for the real wood on the dash and door panels, thicker leather seats compared to the '71s, etc.
I advise you keep yours for as long as possible!
Greetings, I own a 1973 deville. love it to death...
I am considering purchasing a 1969 4-door in mint condition from a senior citizen... it was her mother's car. purchased new...this woman is like 70 years old and it sits in the garage...
She's thinking bout selling it... i want to make her an offer, but don't want to over or under bid...
I did research... the convertibles seem to be worth a nice buck, but the devilles... were selling for maybe $4000...it's in mint condition in and out...thanks!
Ohhhh...that is so sad. I'm so sorry you had to let the car go! I become depressed reading a lot of the reviews where people have had to give up their fine cars, because I have been there, with my 1970 Torino Cobra 429SCJ. Old cars like this seem to take a part of peoples hearts when they go.
The Original Poster: I don't understand, you give the car such rave reviews and say it was the best you ever owned, but you just keep listing mishaps with it. Is it a bad car to own if you don't have good money to keep getting it fixed or what? I wouldn't mind up-keeping the car bimonthly with oil changes and a new ac or whatever, but replacing the engine and all that?..wooh... Is it a car that will need to be constantly checked for secret problems or can I be at ease?
I am a Chevy girl... I own two 1957's. I have always wanted a convertible Cadillac. I am going to look at a 69 con. this weekend. Any advise? What would be a good price? I have seen pics. know the people.146.000 miles. It looks like it is in great condition. Is there anything I should look out for?
