NOTE: THE CAR IS A 1979 WITH '77 TAIL LIGHTS AND GRILL. I have the original '79 tail lights and grill if you prefer them. You can have both sets. You can also have the original Cadillac spoke hubcaps. The final photo shows the car with the original '79 tail lights, 3/4-in white walls and original Cadillac spoke hubcaps.
The car is basically in excellent condition with a few relatively minor things to be done, such as adjustment of the heating/AC circulation system and a tear of the material of the driver's side armrest (rest of door panel is perfect). According to the previous owner the AC just needs to be recharged. He added that there may be a tiny leak in the system. Not a big fan of AC, so I've never really looked into it. But the previous owner does say it works. There are some small rust areas on the body, 5 of which are on the exterior. But in only one case has the rust eaten thru, and so the rest can be fairly easily touched up with some sanding and paint. The rust areas are along the edge of the vinyl top, on drivers side and roof of car. The small rust hole (about 2-inches across) is very low on the rear quarter panel, behind rear wheel.
Car has original AM/FM stereo with original 8-track. Power windows, doors, seats, everything else, works. I currently have on it the tail lights and grill from a 77 Coupe (77 thru 79 DeVilles were basically the same car). I happened to like the 77 tail lights and grill better, but do have the original 79s if you would like to switch back. I also currently have on the car 2-inch white wall tires and chrome spoke basket rims. They resemble true spokes, but are actually removable spoke baskets over chrome rims which I have painted flat back to make the spokes look more realistic. In other words, the spokes are chrome, but the part of the rim directly behind them is painted flat black to give the appearance of black empty space behind the spokes. The outer part of the rims are still chrome (see photos). The spokes do need to be rechromed. I've been using chrome paint on them to cover the rust. As with the tail lights and grill, I have the original Cadillac hubcaps w/locks.
As a bonus, the car will be appearing in a movie soon to be released (although in just one scene) titled 79 Parts. One of the stars of the film is Julia Roberts' brother Eric Roberts. Eric Roberts co-starred with actor Mickey Rourke in the 1984 movie Pope Of Greenwich Village. The car is also on the cover of the November 2013 British edition of Vogue Magazine, although in an extreme closeup where all you can see of the car is the white leather interior. Actress Claire Danes of the Showtime series, Homeland, is sitting in the driver's seat. The photo shoot took place at the Good Fellas Diner in Maspeth Queens. It's where DeNiro knocks over the phone booth outside. I will gladly give you the contact for the various film and photoshoot agencies I registered with so that you can tell them you are the new owner and they will contact you if/when thy want to use the car in a movie or photoshoot. You will DEFINITELY make money with this car I would say close to $1,000/year.
