When it comes to vintage automobiles, California and the West Coast of the United States have always been the most desirable the world over for many reasons; the mild climate and the fact that many automotive trends started in California. The automobile is the perfect technological symbol of American culture, a tangible expression of our quest to level space, time, and class and a reflection of our relentless mobility, social and otherwise. You see automobiles advertised the world over described as California cars because at some point they were in California or drove through California. A true California car is one that was sold new in California and titled in California, one that has the original plates that are on that title is a true California car.We are liquidating a collection of 300 actual California cars.

Being that it is a Cadillac, the build quality is higher than most cars of its time enabling this 66 Deville to age like a fine wine."The Standard of the World"
Cosmetically this car is in good condition. The body is straight and has no rust issues. The paint is not original, and has been repainted once the original Antique Gold.
