1979 Cadillac Sedan DeVille.My father-in-law bought this car either as a program car or a low-mileage used car in 1980.He died in 1992.His wife lived until 2003, when my wife inherited the car.We drove it a bit, but not enough to keep it insured and licensed.It has been sitting outside for ten years or so, which has taken its toll on the exterior.While my wife has had an emotional tie to the car, she says it finally is time to get rid of it.

The interior has rodent damage in the headliner, but the leather seats look undamaged.There is some rodent damage to underhood wires.The left driver’s door is stuck shut.The latch mechanism is probably rusted from exposure and will need to have some penetrating oil squirted into it to free it up.Perhaps it can be opened from the inside with someone pulling on the outside at the same time.

The car ran fine when we were driving it, and everything worked.I believe it has every option, to include air conditioning of course.The odometer shows about 89,630 miles, which are original miles.The car would make a good restoration project, or would serve as a parts car for the restoration of another Cadillac of the same basic configuration.The car has minimal rust, probably because my father-in-law had Ziebart rust treatment applied when the car was new.While it would pain my wife to think it, it would serve as a good demolition derby car because of its weight and huge bumpers.
