Cadillac Coupe De Ville 1966- by Jimdo

The Coupe de Ville was introduced by Cadillac late in the 1949 model year. Part of the Cadillac Series 62 line, it was a closed, two-door coupé, Cadillac's first pillarless hardtop. Intended as a prestige model, at $3,497 it was one of the most expensive models of the Series 62 line. It was luxuriously trimmed, with leather upholstery and chrome 'bows' in the headliner to simulate the ribs of a convertible top. The first-year Coupe de Ville sold 2,150 units, but 1950 sales were more than double, and 1951 more than doubled those of the previous year. By 1961 it was one of the company's most popular models, with annual sales above 20,000.
Cadillac de Ville nomenclature always followed a tradition: Two doors with steel roofs were always Coupe de Ville, four doors were always Sedan de Ville until the elimination of two door models, and convertibles were Series 62s, as they were neither a coupe, nor a sedan by design. - Wikipedia

A Cadillac lançou em 1949 o Cadillac Coupe de Ville , um sedan de porte grande típico americano com dimensões superiores a cinco metros de comprimento, quase dois metros de largura e com peso médio de quase duas toneladas. O nome DeVille foi usado em vários modelos de luxo da CADILLAC. Em 1996 a montadora parou de produzir o modelo semelhante ao DeVille, o Fleetwood, transformando-o assim no principal modelo da linhagem. O nome DeVille foi substituído por DTS (DeVille Touring Sedan) para o novo modelo do ano 2006.

  1. The Cadillac DeVille began its production life in 1949, when Cadillac introduced the Coupe de Ville. The original Coupe de Ville won Motor Trends first "Car of the Year" award. The 2005 model of the Deville comes in three different levels: Base, DHS and DTS. While the DHS and DTS were both DeVilles, they had distinct differences. After 2005, Cadillac dropped the DeVille name altogether, in favor of DTS.

  2. Here are some things you can do yourself at home to prevent pricey van: Make sure your windscreen wash isn’t empty and refill if so. All you have do is buy the wash and mix it with water. Also make sure your oil level is ok. Simply remove the dipstick, clean it, reinsert it and check again. You should see a clean, dark oil on the dipstick. If the oil looks black, sludgy or has white froth then call a garage. If your oil level looks normal but is low simply poor in the oil and check again. Coolant is another thing you must check regularly. The coolant is in a translucent box in your engine. Look and see what the level is and if it’s low pop some coolant in.
