Cooped Up Cadillac Coupes!

Reader Richard W is helping his father clear out the barn, so this pair of cooped up Caddys needs to go! They’ve been parked in this barn for a number of years, so they are dusty and a bit musty smelling, but appear to be in decent shape otherwise. Richard thought a fellow reader might appreciate owning one or both cars, so you can find the link to his Facebook ad below! Both cars are still in the barn and can be found in Sedgwick, Kansas.

From Richard – I have two Cadillac coupes that need to go. My dad is parting with his pair of black and cream-yellow (called lido yellow in its day) Cadillac Coupes. One is a 1967 Cadillac Calais and the other is a 1979 Cadillac Coupe DeVille d’Elegance. Both have been in storage for several years. The bodies are decent, the interiors are musty from being stored. These are really neat cars with the ’79 being the fully loaded luxury car of its day and the Calais was a road-eating machine.

While the Calais was the entry-level Cadillac in ’67, it’s still a big and comfortable cruiser. The later Coupe DeVille d’Elegance was, on the other hand, the top trim level in ’79. The d’Elegance trim package made the already luxurious DeVille that much nicer with things like Venetian Velour covered seats, Tangier carpets, and special exterior trim. It increased the DeVille’s $11,728 starting price by almost $800. For the sake of context, this car set it’s original owner back almost twice what a Caprice Classic Coupe would have.

Richard’s Facebook ad is focused just on the Coupe d’Elegance, but if you are interested in the Calais or buying both, feel free to message him via the link below! So, would you enjoy owning one or both of these Caddys?

    Note to fellow readers, not to say anything negative about Richard’s cars, but if you are going to store your cars on a dirt floor, parking them on a sheet of thick plastic is a really good idea.

    I store my 9ld Corvette on a cement floor. On top of that is plywood, then cardboard and old blankets. Moisture destroys cars. More than 20 years ago, I put my 69 GTO in storage. In a western PA barn. Pushed it into a giant plastic bag after removing the battery and fogging the engine. Sealed the bag. Came back years later. Absolutely no rodent damage or moisture. Put in the battery. Started.

    I would take the 67 Caddy any day. What is the price of just the 67?

    Nice pair, showing evolution of the ‘World Standard’ over twenty years.

    BTW: Your two engine photos look identical. Did you intend to show a picture of the engines of both vehicles?
