25k Miles? 1967 Cadillac Coupe DeVille

At more than eighteen and a half feet long, you won’t have to worry about not standing out driving around in this 1967 Cadillac Coupe DeVille, as just the land-yacht size and styling will be enough to draw plenty of attention on the road.  But when the car looks as good as this one here on eBay does inside and out, you’ll have even more bragging rights once the attention shifts from magnitude to condition, as this Caddy is a real beauty.  You’ll need to travel to Cleveland, Mississippi, if you want to check it out first then place a bid somewhere over $19,100 should the DeVille meet or exceed expectations, but be aware that the reserve has not yet been reached.

The Baroque Gold paint is stated to be the original finish with mileage listed as 25k, so a vehicle nearing the six-decade mark and still presenting like this one should have an amazing historical story to go along with it.  All the past information we get here is that the car’s been well cared for, it’s beautiful and is in amazing condition.  The pictures undoubtedly back up the appearance claims, but it would be great to know the circumstances that have preserved the Cadillac to such exceptional standards.  Has it been tucked away in a garage unused for years, or was it just rarely driven?  But even without specifics, this seems to be a case where seeing is believing, and my eyes are perceiving what looks to be a top-notch survivor.

Moving to the inside shows an equally well-preserved interior, and if it’s also original as the seller claims I don’t see any way how that odometer can be on the second spin around.  The seats reflect what I’d consider a combination of low mileage, proper care, and favorable storage conditions, plus the rest of the components including the dash are also showing very little wear.  One thing to take note of is the speedometer, as it stopped functioning the last time the Cadillac was driven, but that shouldn’t be too much of an issue to get repaired.

A 429 cubic-inch V8 powers this Coupe DeVille delivering 340 horsepower, which sounds more than adequate to move 4,600 pounds around, although buyers who waited another year got the 375 HP 472 V8 as the standard powerplant.  The owner states that both the engine and transmission perform as they did from day one and that the car runs and drives like a dream, so I’m guessing the reserve will be exceeded and this one’s going to exchange hands by the auction’s end.  How much would you be willing to pay for a 1967 Cadillac Coupe DeVille of this caliber?

    All I can say is….. WOW!!!!! Im not usually a fan of gold, however, this shade of gold, with the black vinyl top and the light color interior is just stunning. Especially the opening picture. Im not going to comment on the low mileage claim, but looking at the condition of the the inside and outside I wouldnt be surprised if it was legit. I sure hope this goes to a good home, with a nice heated garage, and enjoyed on beautiful sunny days.

      I had a 69 Oldsmobile Delta 88 in this same black over gold but with black brocade interior 👌. Always got much attention. As for this Cadillac, it was the first year Cadillac returned to a more pronounced fin. My late brother, a successful business man once owned a 78 Series 75 limo. Absolutely OTT excessive luxury! This De Ville is a beautiful throw back to when Cadillac WAS The Standard of the WORLD, deserving to be pampered and put on a pedestal!

        The fin was still in recent memory – it would evoke earlier years to the target demographic. Fins emerged in 1948; and returning GIs would lust after them, some of them…”Some day, I’m gonna have one.”

        For those WWII veterans, “someday” came twenty years later. The fins were a nod to Cadillac’s past.

        Not unlike the Di-Noc wood paneling on Ford wagons, into the 1980s. It was a feature to recall true woodies of 35 years earlier; but when that generation of mature buyers, went the way of all flesh…so did the Country-Squire variants.

    It’s not really my kind of ride – I’m more into utility – but there’s something to be learned here, in this age of lookalike blob-cars; in this age where the American companies all have culled and/or will cull their divisions.

    There was no mistaking this car. THIS was a CADILLAC.

    Yes, the basics of the chassis were shared with other GM divisions. There was much to differentiate it, though – more even than just style. With a Cadillac, you got a Cadillac engine, designed by Cadillac engineers; built on a separate line that had nothing in common with the high-speed cookie-cutter SBC line.

    You got unique suspension and often some unique features. Air suspension, sometimes. An X-frame for torsional stiffness, but braced with lengthwise runners for safety.

    It’s a far cry from what is done at GM, now, or what Mercury was in its last years. A different grille, different nameplate, and different dealers.

    GM’s moving to corporate engines was the turning point. Why buy a Cimmaron when you got the exact same thing, except the leather seats, in a Cavalier? Why spend even a penny more for a Delta 88 when the same car was sold as a Caprice?

    The answer is right there, in GM’s own history; but they refuse to even contemplate it as the reason for their decline.

    I never understood a low mileage Cadillac. It’s a CADILLAC! use it, enjoy it, appreciate that living room sofa ride, that condo size interior, a trunk large enough for 3 bodies! Not to mention the get up and go of a real Cadillac V-8.
    I don’t think any of my Cadillacs had low milage, at least after I was done with them. I used them. Enjoyed them. Enjoyed being seen in a Cadillac. Enjoyed pis*ing of my father off for always owning a Cadillac.

      Life sometimes interferes. Especially in the demographic that Cadillac appeals to – over 50, slowing out of the rat race.

      I recall in our local newspaper, 45 years ago, a little “human interest” story behind a 1954 Chevrolet being offered for sale with less than 200 miles on it. At the time, the car was 25 years old…and at that time, that was a very-old car.

      The story was, the man who bought it, drove it home and died of a heart attack that very night. The widow didn’t know what to do with it – it wasn’t financed, and she was reasonably well off, so there was no pressure. And she couldn’t decide. She had the dealer take it back for long-term storage, starting it once a month to keep it operable.

      Until the dealer changed hands and did away with their storage problem. The Chevrolet went into enclosed dead storage, until the widow also died.

      That’s an extreme example, but it’s what can happen.

Cadillac like the entire industry seems obsessed with SUVS and crossovers. Few remaining Cadillac cars are so small and lack previous Cadillac Panache. Currently driving 2007 Town Car Signature Limited. Even those are no longer being built. 😔

        I agree with you Rick I’ve owned several real Cadillacs but when they started downsizing them and reducing the cubic inches you were in the same league with Chevrolet. Remember in the 80s when Cadillac got caught using Oldsmobile motors? Cadillac in the day were referred to as hogs and rightfully so.

        Hi Rick,

        Thank you for the question. I actually like the Cadillac SUVs. The new electric Liriq, Vista and Optiq all look the same, just different sizes . The new Escalade IQ will look just like them. Don’t get me wrong, I like the look, just not the fact that they are electric.
        As for the very few sedans they still make, Cadillacs clientele was dying off. Give it 15 more years we will all be gone and no more Baby Boomers.
        Cadillac went after the younger crowd, trying compete with BMW et al.
        I like the high horsepower, but the cars, not so much. For some reason, they always seem to get it wrong. They really need more focus groups.
        But, as everyone has said, today’s vehicles are just carbon copies of each other.
        I know my Cadillacs, but there have been times I’ve seen what I thought was a Cadillac, but turned out to be a Kia or some other brand.
        My favorites are from the mid 1930s to 1976. When they began to shrink them it was all over for me. Then in 1985 they came out with the FWD de Villes. Yuck!
        The 80s RWD Sedan de Villes and Fleetwoods were acceptable, but they were dying like the baby boomers. The last truly nice Cadillac in my book is the 1992 or there abouts Fleetwood.
        My first Cadillac at age 13 was a 1956 Fleetwood. My last Cadillac, so far was a 1992 Eldorado, which I actually didn’t like. Traded that in for a none Cadillac SUV. But looking forward to getting an Escalade-V if things go right.

        To Angela. Unfortunately CADILLAC has made numerous mistakes, as noted. When they were last downsized, I referred to them as the El do Oh No! and Coupe de VILE. I once test drove a 61 De Ville with V6. 👎. Probably the worst issue was with those various engines. Well, Happy tail fins to you until we meet again! 😉

I drove my 65 to all the shows I drove my 65 to all the shows I attended Mine had 62,000 orig miles on it and orig. paint when it was totaled in a flood 8 years ago.

      Hello Angel. .I was literally Cadillac since two years of age.
      Never got over my first memories of riding in a Olympic White, red leather, black top 59 Cadillac Convertible .
      My glamorous mother whispered to me : ” This is a Cadillac, the best car “..
      I had models , die cast , key chains.
      Subsequently I rode in 61 – 72 .
      Then owned 90s onward aa a YOUNG man.
      I continue to own a beautiful Diamond Pearl 2003. A brilliant underrated design & 2012 Deville in silver.
      Not getting rid of them.
      Cadillac will only die if the Company keeps stepping on their own heritage .
      The CT 6 needs to return to US Market.
      I like the Lyriq but despise Crossovers!

        I pretty much have to agree with you, Eternal. The way things are going, Cadillac and GM can’t get out of their own way. If and when GM desolves, Chevrolet will continue on its own as will Cadillac, I suspect. Buick? Who knows?
        My first experience with Cadillac and started my love affair with it was my aunt and uncles 1956 Series 62 Coupe. Baby blue, blue interior, white top. After my uncle crashed it into a tree, they got a 1959 Coupe de Ville, also in blue. I remember my aunt yelling at me to stop playing with the power window in the rear seat. What? They fastenated me. Up. Down, up, down…. of course she yelled at me, LOL
        We’re Italian, there were lots of Cadillacs in the family, many aunts and uncles had many Cadillacs. On my father’s side there were 13 siblings, most had Cadillacs. We were practically our own dealership.

Part of the problem was our family SERVICE STATION where I was working on was dying and left no place to work on it, A few years later I bought a used 73 Coupe de Ville. That one really made me wish I could have successfully restored the 67.

    Why can’t they just build these cars again? You’d think they would, seeing as how monstrously popular classic cars have become. A FORD executive was once quoted not too long ago – “ We’d still sell Ford Pintos if enough people bought them “. This BEAUTIFUL 1967 Cadillac Coupe de Ville is a perfect example of a “once in a lifetime opportunity “. Not many left that are in this stunning/ low mileage condition. The REAL REASON that we won’t ever see another 1967 Cadillac, or even a 1976 Cadillac Fleetwood Talisman is that they just wouldn’t sell enough of them – I guess the only thing left to do is buy THIS ONE or one like it. This CAR is WORTH EVERY PENNY! Good luck! Loved the article.

    My father bought a Sedan Deville the same year and color of this one, back in the 70’s. My brother and I, (note the proper grammer so many are uncapable of these days), found a ton of change in the seats. We used to look in every used car he brought home. He owned it for less than a year. He totalled the car when he was t boned by a car that “came out of nowhere”. (NO car comes out of nowhere), and the truth of it is, you weren’t looking in the first place. My mother said it was the only time he cried over losing a car. Sad because of misguided love of material crap. My late wife totalled my dream car right in front of me, but I didn’t act a fool. Nothing could bring it back, but was glad she and our son wasn’t hurt. Sometimes people have a skewed sense of priorities. Loved that old Caddy though. I had a 76 Sedan Deville for years myself. Always fun to drive and always got plenty of comments and looks.

    The REASON they no longer build cars such as these is, GOVERNMRNT REGULATION!!! They haven’t yet figured out that building lighter and flimsier vehicles doesn’t save one drop of gasoline: people simply drive further, because their wallets allow it! And they tragically get KILLED in those glorified, bubble-shaped golf-carts! If they did away with the m.p.g. requirements, then American motor car companies could simply build what the Market wants — and maybe certain classic styles and configurations would last in the competition. I might get all of the power and room and visibility and safety in a pickup truck — but it still would RIDE LIKE A PICKUP! — not like a classic Cadillac! And pickup trucks aren’t pretty to look at or grace your driveway. I’m sure, if Ford could bring back the Panther platform and the bodies they had from 1979 to 1991, there’d be a steady market for those cars, just as they were then. My 1988 Grand Marquis has 370,000 miles, and if I’m still driving when it wears-out, I’ll look for another one!

      Hello Harrison how are you?
      I agree with you 100%. In fact I’ll take things a step further back to the early 70s when this pseudo gas shortage became rumored.
      There was and never will be a shortage. In the early 70s when this country became invaded with rice burners getting 30+ mpg and running circles and figure 8s around American big block V8s an muscle cars, sales were threatened and something had to be done.
      Now let’s get to the math. American cars were getting 6-10 city foreign 20+ city. Gas was .25-.30 cents per gallon. So here comes reality 3-4x more bang for your buck. So now comes Uncle Sam giving
      the auto industry 10 years to improve fuel economy which equated to lighter cars less metal more plastic lighter engines less cubic inches less horsepower etc.
      The truth of the matter is cars big or small can be modified to run more fuel efficient. Spark causes an explosion caused by fumes or vapor from gasoline. So by vaporizing fuel more before it reaches the spark in the combustion chamber results in better utilization of the fuel.
      But then they aren’t interested in reducing their profit margin.

    Frog, I cannot argue with you! The gas-shortage came of the oil-cartels conjoining to limit our supply, and our not having developed our own energy-independence. One President made it his business to take fraking and exploration to energy-independence (finally!!!). And the next administration, in the name of a phoney “climate-crisis”, takes it all away and punishes us for being Americans! (WHO’S who will remain nameless) But it is interesting that carbon-emissions in China are of no concern to the climate-Nazis! I’m sorry — but just over one degree of warming in a century is not exactly an “emergency” — might only provide a growing world-population with MORE FOOD! Oh — and we BREATHE-OUT carbon, without which the plants would die. Do they think we’re STUPID???

    YIKES, RICK W!! You had cataract surgery?? I have a friend who wanted to pay $4,000 for cateract surgery on an 18-year-old dog. I advised against it, because, for a dog, eyesight is a secondary sense: they rely primarily on smell and hearing, and a blinded dog probably isn’t suffering. Besides, how do you explain to a dog not to scratch at an itch in the eye, and to refrain from certain activities until the eyes heal? — the dog is not going to understand that. When an old dog begins to go blind, they simply adapt and continue — they don’t worry about it the way that we do — they take it in stride. Well, not long later (a couple of weeks, maybe, after that discussion), the dog wanted to be up in the owner’s lap, where the dog got snuggled and comfortable, then went to sleep, as the owner stroked the dog’s head. About 45 minutes later, the dog took in a deep breath, then let it out with a sigh… and died. An 18-year-old dog, safe in the loving lap of the owner — you couldn’t ask for a more peaceful way to go, than that! The owner is in great grief. But I told her, that at least the dog was not suffering or sick to a point where she had to make the awful decision to have the dog euthanised to end the misery. This dog simply came quietly and peacefully to the end of life in the place the dog loved best. She still feels guilty about not attempting to restore her dog’s eyesight for that last short time. But that probably would have been traumatic for the dog. 18 years is a LONG life, for a dog. A few do live longer, but not many.

One of my cats apparently was injured when lightning struck my home. One eye kept growing larger, causing discomfort. My veterinarian skillfully removed the eye, stitching it closed. Looked like she was 😉 winking. One of my cats, I adopted at 14 and had 5 more years with her. Due to health, I no longer have a cat, but for all I had a powder blue carrier with Script Catillac on back and Coupe de Kitty on both sides. Hope you do well.

    Great Post, RICK W! I have a friend with 12 cats. She always says that the “last” thing she needs is “another cat”. But she cannot resist a homeless cat — most of them start out as feral cats and take some time to adapt to domestication; however, once they DO, they become the most loving of lap-cats, looking constantly for attention. In January, in below-zero temperatures, she was alerted to a mother cat and newborn kittens, in danger of freezing-to-death. She was attacked by the mother cat, and pretty badly scratched-up; but she took them in anyway, against the mother-cat’s will (which usually is the case, initially). The mother cat is still a bit stand-offish; but the kittens (who rapidly are growing into cats) can’t resist their native curiosity — and when I come to visit, three of the five kittens furtively approach me, then launch an investigation of my shoes and the legs of my pants. And when nothing untoward results to then, they wrap themselves around my feet and ankles and rub up against me. One took it upon herself to hop up into my lap and began to purr. Meanwhile, the mother cat watched all of this from a distance across the room. I looked into the eyes of the mother and assured her, “YOU can come over, too — it’s okay — I won’t hurt you.” The mother cat stared at me — then suddenly bolted out of the room.

      Harrison, have your friend read A DOGS PRAYER by Beth Reed and The Rainbow 🌈 Bridge. I was able to find both on the net. There is a recorded version also available. I have found it helpful many times. Hopefully these will give her some peace of mind. Animals can sense people’s feelings about them, so it’s not surprising about the kittens. As for mom cat, it will take some time before she completely trusts anyone. Not licensed as a pet psychologist, but Hopefully offer these thoughts. As for cataracts, remember Laugh In? One sketch had Artie Johnson telling Ruth Buzzi, You have a big cataract. Her reply, No have Cataract, Have Lincoln Continental! 😃 😀 😄 😁 🤣. Although Cataracts are no Laughing matter. Well this Rolls Canardly needs to Roll out and get ready for more scans today! Best 👌 to you as always.

    Hi, RICK W! The kittens still are skittish — unlike her older cats who’ve been there for years. The kittens approach me… so long as I make no sudden moves. Causes one to wonder about their prior experiences. Mom was a feral cat — so maybe some of that rubbed-off. The owner was very surprised at the kittens coming to me like that, because, usually, when anyone enters the house, they instantly flee for places unknown — until the guest leaves. But, for some reason, I caught their curiosity. Maybe because I am way up in years, and calm by temperament, they figured that I was a different sort of human, and harmless. They are very unusual young cat-children — strikingly beautiful with such appealing faces. They have long, multi-coloured furr — the owner says they are “tortoise-shell” cats. They have gentle, even vulnerable, eyes, much as a human child, but different because they are cats. The one that got up into my lap, she says, is the most “adventurous” kitten, the most likely of the litter to “take chances/risks”. Usually that one does new things first; then the others eventually follow after nothing untoward has resulted. Each one has a unique personality. I would love to take pictures of them — but the “click” of a snapshot, would probably cause them to flee in terror and never come near me again! I never saw “Laugh-In” — wasn’t my generation — I was more Danny Kaye, Bob Hope, Jack Benny, et.al.. But I have heard that cataract joke before. Being Autistic, someone had to explain to me what was funny about it, because, to my ears, “cateract” sounds nothing like “Cadillac”. I’ve heard “Rolls Canardly” also, but still do not get that one. It sounds nothing like “Rolls Royce”, at least to me. But SCANS sound concerning! I hope you don’t have anything SERIOUS going on! Best to you, too!!!
