Representing the ’60s: ’63 Cadillac Coupe deVille
When Don Draper achieved partnership he went out and bought a Cadillac very much like the one representing the ’60s American luxury. A little background – the first Cadillac to carry the French inspired name was an Autorama show car. The first production deVille was introduced in 1949. Fast forward to1963 and the Cadillac was essentially similar to the successful styling introduced in 1961. Exterior changes imparted a bolder and longer look. Hoods and deck lids were redesigned. The front fenders projected further forward than in 1962 while the tailfins were trimmed down somewhat to provide a lower profile. Body side sculpturing was entirely eliminated. A total of 143 options including bucket seats with wool, leather or nylon upholstery fabrics and wood veneer facings on dash, doors and seatbacks, set an all-time record for interior appointment choices. Standard equipment was the same as the previous year. The engine was entirely changed, to a 390ci V8 putting out 325hp. Today’s Cadillac representing ’60s luxury is well equipped and everything is said to be in good working order. Out of the 143 options, today’s featured car has am/fm stereo with Vibrasonic, Autronic eye, tilt wheel, and full power. The seller is looking for $21,900 and that could be the right number for such a low mileage, unrestored car. Click here for the eBay auction.
