1968 Cadillac Coupe De Ville Convertible

This beauty was bought brand new as a present to the first owner's wife on December 19, 1967 in Syracuse, New York. The car changed hands in 1969 with a mere 200 miles on it, kept as a “Sunday Driver” until January 1983. From '69 to '83 this Caddy was always garage kept, never allowed to be driven in rain or snow. Showing a mere 26,040 on the odometer, the firemist paint gleaming, the chrome brilliant, and the leather on the driver's seat still supple. The third owner flew in and purchased the car on January 21, 1983, and drove it 800 miles home to Joliet, IL. There, the car remained in his private collection, undergoing a restoration in 1995, and remaining is his care until 2012 when ShowYourAuto first took it into consignment. The car was kept in a climate-controlled environment and regularly serviced during his ownership. The car comes with extensive documentation, previous owner history, as well as service and restoration receipts. There also is a handsome compliment spares that can be sold along with, or separately from the vehicle.

SYA sold the car to the current owner who has cared for it in the same manner as the car lived its entire life, garaged and well maintained. The extent of the driving has been limited to show and shines and parade duty for the last six years. Now, it is time for the next caretaker.
