You've seen them before serving as ambulances and hearses, you've even seen one on the big screen in the "Ghostbusters" movies but we have an extremely rare (1 of 5), actual Cadillac Cbody fourdoor hardtop station wagon here at MotoeXotica Classic Cars, have you ever even seen one?
In 1969, Cadillac commissioned five custombuilt station wagons to transport VIPs, corporate guests and executives at that year's Indianapolis 500 race. This is one of those five Cadillac DeVille Station Wagons, that is being sold on a California actual mileage title.
Dressed in British Racing Green, the paint is in good shape but some minor blemishes are visible upon close inspection, most notably some crazing of the paint from age. The glass panels are intact and clear and the lights are in very good condition. All of the body panels are straight and wagon rolls on Goodyear Wrangler HT tires, 235/75R15, surrounding steel wheels with original Cadillac wheel covers.
Inside, the factory split bench and rear seats have been trimmed in simulated alligator leather, which are in very good shape and which emit a periodspecific vibe. Otherwise, the interior appears original. The carpet, headliner, dashboard and twospoke steering are all in good shape but the dash has a crack on the driver's side near the Apillar. The door panels are in original shape with wear, the mirrors and gear shift lever are in decent shape. Driver assist features include power steering, power brakes, power windows, power front seat and cruise control. Completing the interior is an AM/FM radio.
Starting from the standard Cadillac Sedan DeVille 4door hardtop, the coachbuilder whose identity is today unknown used primarily production GM parts in the conversion, creating a roomy, comfortable and luxurious yet still practical station wagon with Cadillac quality. Its nearly unique styling stands out in any gathering of modern cars.
This example received a restoration in 1998 to meet the high standards of a demanding owner. Not only was it completely redone mechanically but it also was refinished in British Racing Green and trimmed in simulated alligator leather interior to achieve a custom and sporting look befitting a coachbuilt luxury station wagon of its stature. It also has a 1970 Cadillac grille, which the owner preferred to the 1969 style. All mechanical work has been done to factory specifications.
Of course, it is fitted with the complete outfit of Cadillac comfort and convenience features including automatic transmission, power brakes, power steering, automatic climate control, AMFM radio, power windows, power seat, electric side mirror and whitewall radial tires. Appropriate to its custom conception and luxury purpose it also has a chrome roof rack and an extra large cavity sunroof.
After serving their intended purpose of providing the highest standards of corporate hospitality at Indianapolis, all five Cadillac DeVille Station Wagons were sold through a Cadillac dealer in Dallas, Texas. This one ended up serving at Mt. Tamalpais Cemetery in Vallejo, California.
