Description of 1965 Cadillac DeVille DeVille Convertible

1965 Cadillac DeVille Convertible

Paint Code '00' Special Color, Off-White Interior

429ci Monster V8 Powerhouse

Power Options such as Power Windows and Convertible Top - yes, they work.

Very nice, solid, and straight Cadillac! New Top with back window takes the worry away of being caught in bad weather.

This Cadillac could use your vision on how far you may want to go in making it better or your own.

Right now, it has a worn, sun baked interior, good chrome, good metal, good, mechanicals, and basically great bones!

It runs and drives so you can take it to your local watering hole in style. Nice car....

As it had been since DeVille became a separate series, DeVille denoted Cadillac's mainstream model, falling between the Calais (which had replaced the Series 62) and the Sixty Special and Eldorado. The DeVille was redesigned for 1965 but rode on the same 129.5-inch (3,290 mm) wheelbase. Tailfins were canted slightly downward, and sharp, distinct body lines replaced the rounded look. Also new were a straight rear bumper and vertical lamp clusters. The headlight pairs switched from horizontal to vertical, thus permitting a wider grille. Curved frameless side windows appeared, and convertibles acquired tempered glass backlights. New standard features included lamps for luggage, glove and rear passenger compartments and front and rear safety belts. Power was still supplied by the 340 horsepower 429 cu in (7,030 cc) V8, which would be replaced by the 472 cu in (7,730 cc) for 1968. Perimeter frame construction allowed repositioning the engine six inches forward in the frame, thus lowering the transmission hump and increasing interior room. Pillared sedans appeared on the DeVille series for the first time, while six-window hardtop sedans were dropped. A padded vinyl roof was a $121 extra-cost option on the hardtop model. All four DeVille models had small Tiffany-like script nameplates on the ends of their rear fenders just above the chrome side molding.
