Classic Car Overview

1978 Cadillac Other Cadillac Models $25,900

Plymouth, MI Arizona Beige · 425 V8 · 12,682 miles
1978 Cadillac Phaeton

VIN: 6D69S8Q281969

This Cadillac was always covered and garage kept, which makes sense of the extreme level of preservation you see throughout. This Phaeton was only offered in 1978 and 1979, the $1,929 Phaeton package came with a simulated convertible-top, special pin striping, wire wheel discs, and Phaeton name plates in place of the usual Coupe de Ville or Sedan de Ville ornament on the rear fenders. Inside are leather upholstered seats and a leather-trimmed steering wheel, matching the exterior color. The Phaeton came equipped with a 425 CID engine and a TH400 automatic transmission. This one has the Arizona Beige exterior, Dark Brown roof and Light Beige leather interior. The 1978s were released mid-year and very, very few sedans were ever produced, making this a very hard-to-find car!

This particular Cadillac Phaeton has only 12,682 original miles, the original paint, and all factory correct components. The underside is just as nice as the topside and interior, and it even has the original catalytic converter!
