Vintage Ride of the Week: 1968 Cadillac Coupe De Ville

1968 Cadillac Coupe De VilleCadillac introduced its first deVille model in 1949 in the form of the Coupe de Ville, a two-door vehicle without B pillars helping to support its roof. The name eventually was used on four-door models as well. Beginning in 1965, deVille denoted Cadillac’s volume model slotted between the basic Calais series and the top-of-the-line Fleetwood.

The name for the deVille was derived from its body styling, with ‘deVille’ meaning ‘town’ in French. The design and features would change throughout the years and served the company well as an ultra-luxury and elegant automobile. (Excerpted from the writeup on Cadillac Coupe de Villes found here>>)
