For 1965, Cadillac announced a new DeVille series, now with a capital “D”, that included a convertible and pillared sedan for the first time. This full slate of new De Ville models effectively replaced the former Series 62 line. Subtly but superbly detailed, the 1965 Cadillacs utilized a new perimeter-frame chassis while retaining a 129.5-inch wheelbase. At the front, dual stacked headlamps were featured; at the rear, only a suggestion of fins remained. A more conservative frontal treatment arrived for 1966, along with variable-ratio power steering. Forward-thrusting front fenders and sweepingly sculpted body sides enhanced the sleek appearance of 1967-68 Cadillacs, with coupes receiving a new and boldly formal notchback roofline. By 1968, a 375hp 472ci engine, the industry's largest, was standard.
This delightful Cadillac's first known history dates to 1974 with a receipt for an oil change in Memphis, Tennessee, the area known as being the territory of Elvis Presley. The car was imported from Colorado in 2003 by the previous owner and the current owner purchased it in 2011. The vendor has advised that it has had many thousands spent keeping it in 'tip top' condition mechanically and cosmetically. It was subject to reupholstered seats in 2003 and then a new hood and a respray by the previous owner in 2010. It has been well looked after since then and the vendor states that it always starts instantly.
