Description of 1979 Cadillac DeVille Phaeton

THIS 1979 CADILLAC PHAETON IS A RARE MODEL ON ITS OWN, DUE TO THE LOW PRODUCTION OF THE PHAETON PACKAGE, ONLY 2400 WERE MADE, IT HAS THE 5.7 350 DIESEL ENGINE, WHICH WAS NOT VERY POPULAR BUT AT THE SAME TIME MAKES THIS PARTICULAR PHAETON A BIT MORE RARE, DIESEL ENGINES IN THE PHAETON WERE EXTREMELY LOW NUMBERED, I HAVE ONLY FOUND TWO OTHER DIESEL PHAETON’S, AND THEY ARE BOTH THE SEDAN..

THIS HAS THE REPLACEMENT DX BLOCK, IT WAS DONE AT THE CADILLAC DEALER, IN THE MID 1980s UNDER A WARRANTY RECALL TO REPLACE THE FIRST GENERATION ENGINE, THIS CADILLAC WAS OWNED BY A GM EXECUTIVE FROM 1979-1980 TO SHOW OFF THE PHAETON MODEL AS WELL AS THE DIESEL ENGINE AT EVENTS, THE 2ND OWNER PURCHASED THE CAR IN DECEMBER OF 1980 AND HAD IT UNTIL MY PURCHASE IN 2016. I DO HAVE THE ORIGINAL WINDOW STICKER, MISC BROCHURES, THE OWNERS MANUAL, THE ORIGINAL AND DUPLICATE SETS OF KEYS.

THE EXTERIOR OF THE CAR IS BEAUTIFUL, ITS NOT PERFECT BUT ITS VERY NICE, PAINT IS NICE, CHROME IS NICE, FABRIC PHAETON TOP IS NICE, THE UNDERCARRIAGE IS IN EXCELLENT SHAPE, PREVIOUS OWNER DETAILED THE UNDERSIDE VERY WELL SOME TIME AGO, THE ENGINE BAY IS VERY CLEAN, 2 NEW BATTERIES WERE INSTALLED, THE ENGINE RUNS GREAT, AND THE TRANSMISSION SHIFTS PROPERLY, THE LEATHER INTERIOR IS IN EXCELLENT SHAPE, THE DASH HAS A SPLIT ON TOP WHICH IS COMMON, THE HEADLINER FABRIC WAS REPLACED YEARS AGO AND LOOKS GREAT, ORIGINAL LEATHER WRAPPED STEERING WHEEL AND DOOR PANELS ARE VERY NICE AS WELL, CARPET IS NICE, ALONG WITH ORIGINAL FLOOR MATS. TWILIGHT HEADLIGHTS WORK FINE, POWER WINDOWS WORK FINE, POWER LOCKS WORK, POWER SEATS WORK, BUT DRIVER SIDE WONT GO BACKWARD AT TIMES, THE AIR CONDITIONING NEEDS TO BE CHARGED, AM-FM RADIO WORKS FINE, THE ANTENNA MOTOR RUNS BUT IT STAYS IN THE UP POSITION. THE ORIGINAL STYLE THICK WHITE WALL TIRES HAVE AGE ON THEM BUT STILL ARE IN NICE SHAPE. THE REAR LEFT AND RIGHT SIDE BUMPER FILLERS HAVE BEEN REPLACED,AND A 3 PIECE SET OF NEW REAR MIDDLE FILLERS ARE IN THE TRUNK INCLUDED.
