Make way for the #Cadillac#CoupeDeVille !!! This is a 1970 #CadillacCoupeDeVille#Convertible painted glossy red with custom upholstery to match the booths of the diner that it advertises!
The DeVille is one of Cadillac’s oldest nameplates, initially a trim level for the 1949 “Series 62” which became a standalone model in 1959.
1970 marks the departure from the dual stacked headlights for the sleeker side-by-side dual headlights. Technically there weren’t notable advances for this generation as Cadillac already incorporated many lavish features in the DeVille.
Instead of adding new features and aside from minor design improvements to the engine or chassis, the yearly changes to DeVille models were almost purely aesthetic. They either changed the style of the grille, redrew the body lines, adjusted the slope of the tailfins or elongated the hood.
Specifications for this car are gigantic: is 5.7 meters long, exactly 2 meters wide and a weight of 2.1 metric tonnes. These two tonnes of dense #Detroit steel are powered by a chest-rumbling 429-cubic-inch (7.0 litre) carburetted #V8 engine developing 340 hp.
Modern calculations estimate the car’s top speed was around 210 kph and the fuel consumption was an astronomical 27 litres per 100 km. A car definitely designed for its time, especially when you know that in 1968 an optional 7.7 litre engine was available!
All in all the #CadillacDeVille was an iconic #American car that was the top of automotive luxury designed for the financially established Baby Boomers or higher class who could afford rising gas prices. At the time, Cadillac was setting consecutive sales records and the #DeVille was accountable for 76% of the brand’s total sales.
Even today, the reputation of this car as the embodiment of the mid-century American culture of extravagance is undeniable and now effortlessly supports the theme of retro-styled restaurants everywhere in the world. Indeed, this is quite a sight to see in a restaurant in a shopping mall in France!
