Despite renewed challenges from Lincoln, Cadillac positioned itself for continued leadership of Americas luxury-car market in 1965 with freshly restyled models with simplified bodylines and replacement of its once-fashionable tailfins in favor of smart, blade-type rear fenders. A new perimeter-type chassis replaced the old X-member frame design and provide improved passenger space and comfort. More solid and quiet than ever before, the 65 Cadillac models also delivered better steering and handling. Widely acclaimed by the automotive press and buyers alike, the new-for-1965 Cadillac line was reorganized with traditional numerical model designations replaced by the Calais, DeVille and Fleetwood lines. The Calais line brought Cadillac ownership to a wider audience and included a hardtop sedan and coupe, along with a traditional sedan.
This very nicely presented and highly original 1965 Cadillac Calais hardtop sedan was purchased in 1980 by the father of the prior owner at under 4,000 miles. Only an approximate 4,550 miles are indicated and given the wonderful condition of this vehicle, believed original. Features and options include power-assisted brakes, steering, windows, antenna and door locks, plus air conditioning, a radio and rebuilt clock. Very well maintained and clearly benefiting from proper climate-controlled storage over the long term, this Calais retains the wax pen marks applied at the factory during production, still visible on the drivers side inner fender. It even rides on the original Laredo whitewall tires, while the original spare tire appears never used. The 100% original navy interior is very well preserved and remains as-new throughout in appearance. Ample power is delivered by a 340 HP, 429 CI Cadillac V-8 engine with four-barrel carburetor, mated to a Turbo-Hydramatic 3-speed automatic transmission. As expected, documentation is excellent, including such original items as a letter from Cadillac, an original insurance card and Protect-O-Plate. Featuring low miles, great documentation and irreplaceable originality, this 1965 Cadillac Calais is an amazing find for Cadillac collectors and enthusiasts alike!
