Description for Cadillac DeVille 1978

1978 Cadillac Coupe DeVille VIN: 6D47S8Q239825 So. where else are you buying your minty. vintage top-of-the-line Caddys anyway? Reluctantly. this one was turned over to us for resale to a lucky new buyer a short time ago with the following recitation: Way back in the summer of 1978 Mr. Edward P. of Tacoma. WA stopped by Sparling Cadillac in Seattle and drove home in this car. The odometer showed just 11 miles on that day. As the years passed. he fussed over the DeVille. always giving it regular attention and service. Today that same mileage counter shows 89. 54 and I wouldn’t be too shocked to discover they’re actual miles based on the observed condition of this rig (Truthfully. we have no way to really know). While it isn’t impossible to find another thirty-seven year old coupe in this nice overall shape most were just turned over to a teenage driver after Granddad bought a new car and were then beaten to within an inch of their lives as a Saturday night cruiser. As our photos clearly show. that has definitely NOT been the case here! If you have questions or would like to discuss a sale before the auction ends. please call me anytime. My name is Mark Thompson and my direct number is (206)914-1173. CONDITION: The exterior of our Coupe is in remarkably good condition. A recent respray of the factory paint was done to a high standard and is very nice. Take a quick glance over my photos and you’ll see all the glass is good with no cracks or chips (the dark tint has gone a long way to protecting the interior. too). The color-matched landau white vinyl roof is original and still in fairly decent shape with just a few minor flaws as shown. Rust? Please. this boulevard cruiser HATES body rust and you’ll be hard pressed to find ANYTHING here to worry about here (look at my shots of the underside and bottom of the doors). Yes. the Puget Sound area is famous for rain. but our winter roads are never salted. At most we’ll only have one or two days of light snow each year. Truly. everyone panics and just stays home. Climb over. under and throughout this car - I know you’ll come up smiling! Mechanically the DeVille feels good and strong. The original carburetor was replaced last year with an easy-breathing. powerful Edelbrock model that delivers fuel better than factory! Even after sitting in our warehouse for a few days at a time the engine fires right up at about the first crank. As you would expect. the automatic transmission shifts smoothly through all the gears and has no slippage. The brakes feel just fine to me. I’ve spent several days cruising both freeways and city streets and can find no fault with the way this car drives out. The only negatives to point to are the radio and A/C are not currently working. though the heater is fine. The driver’s door pull handle and arm rest have vinyl wear and. though still in place and acceptable. the headliner is faded and just a bit warped from age (yikes. sounds like my wife describing me!). The driver’s power seat switch also appears to need replacement as the driver's side stays on one position now. I have no problem encouraging bidders to do what many of our previous buyers from as far away as Alaska. California. the east coast. Canada and even the Mexican Baja have done – fly in here to Seattle (We’ll pick you up at Sea-Tac International just a few miles from us) and then drive home the same day! PLEASE BID WITH CONFIDENCE and know that you are purchasing a decent car from a long-term. respected EBay seller. I want you to be happy with your purchase (and with me) and that’s the main goal! Please don’t be upset if I miss a minor flaw or you’re required to spend a small amount on some unforeseen problem! No used car is ever perfect. Having said that. I have every confidence this Cadillac could be driven home a long distance. Because of the amount of money involved in buying a vehicle. we require that new EBay members or those with a feedback history of five or fewer transactions or ANY negative feedback call or email before placing a bid. If I don’t have this initial contact. your bid may be cancelled. The phone number to talk directly to me. as outlined above. is 206/914-1173. Please feel free to call any time during the auction. My name is MARK THOMPSON. TERMS OF SALE: Please check the photos over closely and call me with any questions BEFORE you place a bid! You’re encouraged to make an appointment to come by my Auburn. Washington warehouse and take the DeVille for a test drive. It is being "sold as-is. where-is" with a free & clear Washington state title. There are NO title brands for any nasty negatives like salvage history. theft recovery or flood damage to cause you concern! Because of the amount of money involved with a vehicle purchase. I reserve the right to cancel your bid if you have any negative feedback. I also ask that potential bidders with a feedback rating of five or fewer transactions on EBay contact me before placing their bid. Please feel free to contact me directly through EBay’s system or. as outlined above. call me at 206/914-1173 anytime. My name is MARK THOMPSON. A Few Additional Terms and Conditions: A nonrefundable $500 deposit is due within 24 hours of the auction’s end. I accept PAYPAL. but only for the deposit amount because of the high fees they charge. The balance is due by cash (if your coming in person to pickup the car only). bank wire or other certified methods within seven business days unless prior arrangements have been made with me. Please remember you are bidding to buy and I fully expect the winning bidder to fulfill their EBay contract! You’re not bidding to hold or then come inspect and test-drive the car later -- You’re more than welcome to do this before the auction ends. If you decide to have the Coupe DeVille shipped home. there are numerous transport companies to choose from. We help with vehicle transport regularly and I'd suggest that you get a bid from Dependable Auto Shippers (DAS). They're EBay’s preferred transporter and will give you a fair quote. Call them toll-free at (888)817-6203. Give the phone rep my affiliate number (2362642) and they can pull up all our information for as door-to-door or station-to-station price quote. As an alternative. you might also get bids from the U-Ship. com website you’ll be able to choose a transport broker from multiple offers. The zip code for pick-up would be 98002 (Auburn. Washington). The shipping of the vehicle and company chosen are the responsibility of the BUYER. I’m happy to store the Cadillac for up to two weeks after the auction ends assuming full payment has been received. After this period storage is $20 per day.
