Look at this belching monstrosity of the late 70’s – full of glut, restricted big block V8’s and probably shag carpet. This 1977 Cadillac DeVille would have checked all the ‘must-haves’ of an elder car shopper. Big, white, slow and the Cadillac badge plastered in various locations. I’m sure in it’s prime, this thing was luxurious – but this particular example has seen better days.
AND some information for ya’ll – via wiki of course:
Styling changes for 1975 brought dual rectangular headlamp lenses flanked by rectangular cornering lights wrapped around the body. A new cross hatched grille also appeared. Sedan de Villes now featured slim triangular quarter windows that mimicked the coach windows that appeared on Coupe de Villes the previous year. New standard equipment included front fender lamp monitors, power door locks, high energy ignition, steel-belted radial tires. The 210 hp 500 V8 replaced the 472 as the standard engine. Electronic fuel injection became optional in March 1975. Another option was the Astroroof with sliding sunshade that permitted use as an electrically operated sunroof or a transparent closed skylight. An ordinary sunroof panel was also available.
