1962 Cadillac De Ville
Sedan Car for sale by Diversion Motors in Manitowoc, Wisconsin 54220
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.

Here is a beautiful 1962 Cadillac 6-window Sedan DeVille that has only had three owners since new, all within a ten mile radius. It has been very well cared for with only 38k miles to date (that’s less than 700 miles per year). It also has the look and ride that helped distinguish the Cadillac brand.
This car has such an elegant look with its York Blue paint and wide white tires. The 1962 model also has the curved a-pillars and lower body creases that give it even more character. This example is remarkably straight and solid throughout with good chrome and brightwork as well. It is free of any accident damage and all the body gaps look factory fresh. Note the vintage AAA badge out back along with the original selling dealer’s decal on the rear bumper.
The engine is Cadillac’s 390 cubic inch V8 with a factory rating of 325 hp. This is plenty of motor for the bid sedan, especially with 410 ft-lb of torque. The transmission is GM’s well proven 4-speed Hydramatic. The power brakes have remarkable stopping ability, while the power steering lets you turn the wheel with your little finger. It’s everything you’d expect from a 1960’s Cadillac.
The interior also looks great with its big bench seats with flip down armrests. Hard to believe it is almost 60 years old! There are no strange odors either. The dash and headliner look practically new and the original rubber floor mats remain. Note the Autronic Eye on the dashboard along with the factory cruise control setup (non-functioning). The wipers, horn, heater/defroster, radio, power antenna, power seat, and power windows all work as they should. There is also an original spare and jack in the trunk.
There is nothing like riding in one of these old Cadillacs, especially when it looks and drives as good as this one. And I think it makes as big a statement today as it did back in 1962.
