For much of the postwar era and the turbulent 1960s in particular, Cadillac remained the undisputed leader of the American luxury-car market. For 1965, Cadillac positioned itself for continued success with completely restyled bodies and replacement of the dated tailfins with smart, up-to-date blade-type rear fenders. Greater interior space was made possible with a new perimeter-frame chassis design, allowing the engine to be moved forward six inches and replacing the outdated X-member arrangement of the 1950s. The overall result was both an unqualified success and a design statement of pure, understated elegance, laid out with an architects precision, according to Motor Trend
magazine editors. As regulatory demands increased, Cadillac engineers applied many new emissions and safety-oriented features. An all-new 472 cubic inch V-8 engine appeared in 1968 and maintained Cadillacs tradition of strong performance with its 375-horsepower rated output and massive torque. The De Ville Series was a key factor in Cadillacs continued success, with detail refinements including a power-operated front seat, illuminated door-panel reflectors, and richer appointments inside and out, including Tiffany-like identification scripts and more luxurious upholstery. The four-model De Ville line of the late 1960s included the 4-door/6-passenger formal Sedan and Hardtop Sedan, the 2-door Coupe De Ville, and Convertible. The formal Sedan was the lowest-production De Ville for 1968, with just 9,850 produced.
Quite rare today, this 1968 Cadillac Sedan De Ville is especially so with just 7,900 miles from new. Always garaged with the Charles Cawley collection when not in use, it remains all-original and simply immaculate throughout. Featuring spectacular original black paint over a matching cloth-and-vinyl interior, the Sedan De Ville is powered by Cadillacs famed 375-horsepower 472 cubic-inch V-8 engine and turbo-Hydramatic 3-speed automatic transmission. Highly equipped and optioned as expected, passenger amenities include air conditioning, and AM/FM radio, power brakes and steering, a power-adjustable front seat, power windows, and tilt-telescopic steering. A roadside jack, mounted spare wheel/tire, lug wrench, and owners manual are included. Freshly detailed and serviced, this 1968 Cadillac Sedan De Ville is quite possibly one of the lowest-mileage and most-original cars of its kind and benefits from exceptionally careful prior ownership.
