August 1st 2019 Update – while updating our database we confirmed the private seller deleted their listing for this pretty Caddy, so we’re calling this one “Sold!”
We came across this essentially brand new white over red leather, 16K original mile time capsule here on Craigslist in Melville, New York (Long Island) for an asking price of $19,995. Unfortunately, the NADA Classic, Collectible, Exotic, and Muscle Car Appraisal Guide currently lists a “High” value of only $2,800. Consequently, as good as this car is, the seller’s price expectations are out of line with the reality of the current market and we have to give this beautiful Caddy our latest “NEW!” (No Effin Way) Award.
The 1979 Cadillac Deville was the second model year for the downsized GM full size line up. Although much smaller than the 1976 models, these are still classic Cadillacs that utilized a 425 cubic inch V8 that remained exclusive to the brand.
The seller provides the following one sentence description (unfortunately in all capital letters) on his post: “ONE OWNER ALL ORIGINAL PAINT. THIS CAR IS ABSOLUTELY LIKE BRAND NEW!!!! WHITE WHITE VINYL LANDAU TOP RED LEATHER.”
If you’re in the market for a brand new forty year old car, look no further. Just work hard on trying to get the asking price down so that you can enjoy this classic full-size six passenger American luxury land yacht without feeling like you paid too much. Good luck with the purchase!
