      {ppcode}This was my dads pride and joy special ordered brand new from Bayview Cadillac in 1997. It has the rare Vintage Edition Package #62 which was an $11000 option, the car listed for $41000 and another $11000 for the package. Sadly my dad passed some years ago then my uncle drove it for mabey 2 years then It was given to me, I had this car garaged for 3 years driving it mabey 1000 miles a year.

      This Caddy is White with Black Leather and has super low miles 66875 to be exact and needless to say it's a real looker, if you dont want to be noticed,this is not the car for you. The Vintage Edition package that my dad ordered was the full out one which included The Vogue Wheels and Tire Package, Full Landau Roof, Rolls Royce Gold Plated Front Grill, Roll Royce Spair Tire trunk mount, Full chrome body side panels along the side body of car, Rear Side Skirts, Vintage Edition Markings embroidered on side of roof(fading abit) Fill Split Bench with shifter on colum which was very hard to find as my dad wanted that living room type feeling, no floor mounted shifter.. oh no no no. Definate S Florida Car Jackie Gleason

      What I did : When I started driving this car I noticing little things,it was running hot and started to overheat, did some research and found out that Northstar motors from Mid 90's to about 2001 had a flaw, the studs that held the head to the block would strip and loose the seal, studs were too soft so the heads became loose, thousands of Caddys would suffered this fate, blown head gaskets and it was a very expensive repair, Dealer wanted almost $5000. I found a place in South Jersey caller Top Line who does nothing but Caddy repair and specializes in this exact problem, He picked up the car and did the whole thing, all the bells and whistles as he went through the whole car, replacing the radiator,brake lines, front brake pads,all belts, Gears, pullys, Tensioners ect, all detailed on reciept I have the reciept with a warranty, Repair was $ 3465.11 and he told me that this motor when repaired properly will run forever. It runs amazing now. I also recently replaced the Starter,Battery(Duralast),Alternator, Brand New Windshield,had a few little rock dings, Serviced the A/C as it was not super cold. 4 wheel alignment done a few weeks ago and tires are a year old, Cooper touring C4S in Front and Goodyear Assurance Comfortred in rear, car came with Vogue tires but when I could not afford the $1200 for all 4 Vogues installed. Car also has the Air Ride Suspension, feels awesome, amazing cruzing car. I also installed Silverstar headiights, and AirAid lifetime better flowing air filter.

      My friend who looked at it said I needed front Rotors as I felt alittle pulse in the brake pedal so I just bought them and I figured I would just get the rear ones as well and rear pads too, that will be included with purchase. I also purchased the Antenna mast as the orig had broken off a few years ago..Included with purchase, I would have it done but the car is off the road now.

      The car is super nice but remember this is a 16 year old car, no accidents, no paint work but there are a few marks, some scratchs on the hood and truck when my a 2 branchs fell off a tree, no major damage but there are some marks from the incident,Touchup paint would help. When u look at the car from a few ft away it looks amazing. Next thing.. The wheels have some corrosion especially the back, shown in pics.. I got an estimate of about $120 a wheel to rechrome if u want to have a perfect car, happened from the years of dad living near the beach in S Fla but no rust on car or underneath, There is another few bits of serface rust on the chrome spair tire, i will show in pics, it is only on serfice and another easy fix. Pics shown car on lift having alignment done. Every once in a while when starting car the check airbag light comes on but had it checked and it is a wire under the seat, has no effect on anything but want to be as upfront as possible. I was on the Caddy forums and was told this is a common thing with these Devilles, Someone suggested to use contact spray on the wires under the seat. I will try to do it before selling. Next,The gas gauge goes wacky when it goes below about 6-7 gallons, what I do is use the gallons used display in the information center so I can see how much gas i used but when it goes below 3 gallons the low fuel warning does work, the float in inside the gas tank is not working 100%. Interior is just mint, still smells like leather, no cuts rips or tears and talk about room... U could sleep in the back,I use to tell my day "it is like a living room on wheels"

      I want to note I did not armorall up the whole car just to make it look wet for pictures, even the motor is just how it looks everyday but if I did spray it up it would sparkle but I really want you too see the car just as it is.. I washed it, vaccumed,cleaned windows and there ya have it.. Car is not perfect but really really nice and for very little effort you have have the wheels done, paint touched up and you are looking Maaaaarvelous..

      This is truly the last year of these huge caddys and this one is just one of a kind, I kept it and put in cash cause it was my dads and he just loved it but I'm not a Caddy kinda guys so someone should really love this car and enjoy the ride, feel and look. The car never stops people in there tracks, lots of stares and very cool comments so please enjoy and any questions PLEASE ASK...
