1998 Cadillac DeVille

$26,900

Description

One of the last of Cadillac's venerable sedans that could devour hundreds of miles of road per day and come back for more, this 1998 Deville Sedan is proof that comfort and technology found peaceful co-existence after all.

Though it had switched a front-drive platform years ago, which yields a relatively flat cabin floor, the car seems just as big as land yachts of yore. Built on October 23, 1997, in Cadillac's Hamtramck factory in Detroit, Michigan, this example is dressed in Mulberry (code 06) and the paint and trim are in overall very good order. It was sold at Heritage Cadillac in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The bodywork is straight and solid, the body-colored bumpers fit tightly to the body and the engine bay is immaculate. The trunk is clean but has several extraneous items. This car has a full Mulberry vinyl roof and gold accents.

This cruiser rides on Michelin XW4 white stripe radials, size P225/60R16 at every corner. Each tire is mounted to a full chrome alloy wheel. The wheels and tires are all in very good order.

Under the counterbalanced hood is Cadillac's Northstar engine, a 4.6L, 32-valve, DOHC motor (code LD8) with sequential fuel injection (SFI). Backing the motor is a 4T80-E four-speed automatic transmission (code MH1) and a 3.11:1 final drive. As expected in a Cadillac, the least of creature comforts is long – electronic climate control, Magnasteer variable-assist and speed-sensitive power rack-and-pinion steering, power four-wheel disc brakes, power windows, cruise control, power locks, power sideview mirrors, digital gauge cluster, power eight-way front seats, rear defroster, electronic leveling control, intermittent wipers and a self-closing trunk lid. Remote fuel filler door and trunk lid releases are included, as is a rear-mounted power antenna.

Safety equipment includes the PASS-Key II security system, ignition anti-lockout, Airbank system - dual front airbags, anti-lock brakes, side airbags in front, brake/transmission interlock and child lockouts on rear side windows.

Inside, the car has matching Mulberry leather interior (code 77). The dual power recliners in front have articulated headrests and are in excellent overall shape. The matching carpet and headliner are in similar condition. The four-spoke steering wheel look ready for a trip while the dashboard and inner door panels seem showroom new. A column-mounted shift lever and factory Delco-Bose AM/FM stereo with cassette deck complete the interior.

Competition to this Deville in 1998 included Audi's A8, BMW's 740i and iL, Cadillac's own Seville SLS, Infiniti's Q45, Jaguar's XJ8 and XJ8L, Lexus' LS400, Mercedes-Benz's S500 and Oldsmobile's Aurora.

If you're a fan of luxobarges from almost 25 years ago, this Cadillac may be to your taste. Stop by MotoeXotica Classic Cars today to see if this one is worth bringing home to your garage.
