1963 Sedan de Ville
Chip Lord writes......
This gold sedan de ville was also purchased from Guy Mullins Motors in
Amarillo. While it ran OK, it was way too ostentatious and piggish for us to
consider driving it, so it sat in front of Toad Hall until the day of its burial. We
had to jump start it, and it bucked all the way out to Helium Road, but when all was said
and done it went into the ground smoothly. Cadillac upped the displacement of the V-8 to
429 cubic inches this year, but the tail fin was on the way out - a mere shadow of the
space aged '59 fin.
We could have kept going, but the 1966 Cadillac is really the last of that era. It has a full metal grille dashboard, and the next year they started substituting plastic knobs and dodads for the high quality interior details. From this point it was all down hill for the Cadillac and General Motors.
Surprisingly, they are still in business in 1997, and they even still make Cadillacs, but I would never own one.
