The name “DeVille” is derived from the French de la ville or de ville meaning “of the town”, very likely to top the name ‘Town Car’ used by Ford’s Lincoln Division. This was the last full size Caddy that was really full sized.
Cadillac’s 75th anniversary in 1977 saw the introduction of the downsized DeVille coupes and sedans. These new cars featured a higher roofline, resulting in a vehicle that was over nine inches shorter, four inches narrower, and 1/2 ton lighter than the ’76 model, but with a larger trunk and more headroom and legroom. So this ’76 is the real deal for both size and power, measuring 19′ 3” length, and with a 8.2 litre V8, the largest ever used.
In 1976 the grille saw a new and finer crosshatching pattern. Cornering lamps got new horizontal chrome trim while tail lamps gained a new bold look. Eight different color accent stripes were available. Vinyl tops were now integral padded Elk grain material. New trims included sporty plaids, plush velours, knits and 11 distinctive genuine leathers. Coupe de Ville’s had a new vinyl roof whose top molding served as a continuation of the door “belt” molding. A Controlled (limited-slip) Differential was included for extra traction. An optional illuminated entry and theft deterrence system was optional. A new battery was introduced, called the Freedom battery, it was sealed and required no maintenance. New turbine veined and wire wheel covers were offered. A new option locked the doors when the transmission lever was shifted to “Drive”. Cadillac also offered Track Master, a computerized skid prevention system that automatically pumped the back brakes in an emergency to shorten stopping distance, a forerunner to ABS. New options included a push-button Weather Band built into the AM/FM stereo signal-seeking radio, loose pillow style seats for d’Elegance packages, plus power passenger and manual driver seatback recliners for 50/50 front seats. Of the 15 standard and six optional Firemist body colors, 13 were new this year. New standard features included map light, Soft-Ray tinted glass, spare tire cover, washer fluid level indicator, and steel belted radial whitewall tires.
This beautiful example is finished in Firethorn Red metallic and twinned to a Firethorn interior. The interior is a great place to be and the view over the acre of hood (ok bonnet) is just wonderful. The ride is sublime, this is one smooth quiet automobile.
