I’m selling my stunning 429 ci 1965 Cadillac Sedan De Ville –
Pillared Version

The car is very solid and the Paint is really nice and has
just got 1 years MOT on it.  It’s lowered
for looks, but still rides well, you just need to be careful over the speed-bumps.   I’ve installed an Alpine stereo with
infiniti speakers and a subwoofer for added cruising enjoyment.  

The TH400 Box is sweet, the drivetrain and axle super smooth,
and the brakes are strong.  It actually
handles really nicely too, you can guide it down a small-ish twisty road at a
good pace no problem… I was surprised! It has coil sprung and linked rear end from the factory, which makes it so much nicer to drive than leaf sprung cars.

It’s by no means perfect as it’s never been ‘fully restored',
but a very good base for a rolling resto / continued improvement.  You can use it whilst improving it along the
way, as I have done for around 3 years.   Whilst the mechanicals need a little bit of
work if you want, the body and Chassis are very smart, solid, MOT'ed and it starts
on the button.   

In all honesty, there are some issues that need sorting in the long term, but hey, its a 50 year old car! The fuel tank leaks a little but when you are
filling it and the engine breathes a bit and oils up #4 spark plug, to the point
where you need to pop a new plug in there after 60~100 miles of driving
depending on how you drive.   I’m just
being honest here, I could chuck some thick oil in there and sell it on, but
that’s not my style.  The Power Steering
box weeps a bit of fluid too, I just top it up every now and then as I don’t
have time to rebuild the box.   Also, the
windows and door locks need some attention, but this won’t cost anything to
fix, just a bit of time.  

However all that said, It’s an extremely beautiful, solid & honest car which
has given me a lot of enjoyment.  It’s stored indoors and has recently had some
corrosion over the rear arch addressed so it’s ready to go.  You
can enjoy it as it is, you just need to be a bit patient and pop a new spark
plug in every now and then.   I’m only
selling because I have a baby now, and the Saturdays spent playing V8’s and polishing a 6 metre long car at the
storage workshop are being frowned upon!

I'm being as honest as possible, what I need to emphasise is that it is a very attractive car and viewing is recommended. 

Included in the sale will be the Shop manual, AC compressor
and Condenser and a new ac sensor + sensor grille for the dash panel (Photos to follow)

N.b: it has twin exhausts with glasspacks, and sounds absolutely superb.
