Hello, I bought a 1967 two door blue hardtop Deville about a month ago for $2,500. I took a loan out for it so Im gonna be paying it off for a while but once Im done Im gonna restore it.

I hope that I can get some good suggestions from this site!

That's a beautiful car. The casino cash can be spent in the casino (upper right) on the blue task bar. The casino is a perk for supporting members.

The electrical is bad, the windows and the seats dont move, and for some reason there is no steering column tilt...

Welcome and nice score. The body is in amazing shape for a car of that vintage, and body work is far more expensive than running a few wires. I am also quite a fan of the color. :D

Reminds me of my old '68 DeVille 4-door. Though mine wasnt in nearly as nice condition as yours. Welcome and good luck! :highfive:

Greetings and salutations.

Just as everyone else has said, $2,500 is a heck of a deal for that car. It's in really good shape. Good find!

Whatever you do, make sure to make your loan payments on time and (if possible) pay extra to get it paid off quicker. It's never a good day when someone comes buy to repo your ride.

The original owner had it stored in his garage for 13 years because he bought it for his father but he passed on. And he couldnt stand New York state anymore so he wanted to sell what he couldn't take to Florida with him.

The previous owner painted it blue so that it wouldn't rust out. he said it cost him $1000. And the paint job itself is very good. The only problem is rust spots have developed and for some weird reason they never painted a certain part of the front headlights. You can see the original color there, which was originally brown.

That part is removable, isn't it?

e-bay or salvage yard, ebay is probably the best bet

yeah but I'd have to replace it, I mine as well repaint it, but I gotta find the right color that matches...

A paint shop should be able to closely match it.

You should probably find out what color the car was actually intended to be.

If I'm not mistaken, you can find that out from the cowl plate.

^Its just as good to do a match if he plans on keeping the body paint

I'd go with the original color. That copper-brown firemist on that car look soo good when it's polished up to a high shine. Either way, sweet car.
