1989 Cadillac De Ville Sedan
GREENVILLE, TX 75402
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.
Classic Car Overview
For sale by second owner, not a dealership.
1989 Cadillac Sedan DeVille in good to very good condition, with mileage less than 142,700 miles.
This is a daily-driver and reliable vehicle. The miles on it are mostly highway. I am a cautious / conservative driver and I rarely exceed 60 MPH and never do Jackrabbit starts and stops. I consider heavy footed driving to be counter productive and causes unnecessary wear and tear, adding considerably to the life cycle cost of owning vehicle.
Since I bought the car in 2000 (27,000 mi) from the original owners, the car has received on-time oil changes using only Mobile 1 (synthetic oil). The A/C was converted to use current refrigerants. The engine does not leak oil and uses abut a quart between oil changes. Window seals are tight. All dials and lights function properly. The spedometer is spot-on at 60 mph as calibrated by GPS.
The vehicle has never been in an accident, the body and frame are straight and the original paint is in excellent condition. The vehicle was purchased in Fort Worth, Texas and has remained in the DFW area its entire life; It has never been exposed to road salt or salt air.
The car has a smooth, quiet ride and looks quite good, despite her age. The only reason I’m considering selling her, is because I want a car with all the new safety features (back-up camera, multiple airbags, accident braking, lane departure warning, etc...)
This is a classic beauty worth buying, to drive worry-free on a daily basis, or to restore to pristine condition with minimal cost.
Vehicle faults: Headliner needs to be replaced, carpets shampooed, brake rotors machined, Blower speed control needs to be replaced - the blower stays on after the ignition is turned off, but the electronic climate control HVAC works fine otherwise. - Blower control currently unplugged to keep the battery from being drained after driving. Speakers are old and crackle (stereo and antennae are fully functional).
Any mechanical question you may have, I should be able to answer given the years I’ve driven this Caddy and, my overall automotive knowledge
