Ebay and junk yards are your friends... We are speaking about a car that was an expensive luxury car when it was brand new. Although the value of the car might be very low now, the new parts are still vert expensive if they are not discontinued yet. Use this search engine to search nearby junkyards: http://www.car-part.com/
Small parts like emblem are not listed in this website, however it is perfect for main parts of a car. Ebay is the best place to find emblems and such small parts....

Greetings and salutations.

'85+ devilles aren't seen too much as collector/restoration examples. You should have no problem scquiring parts from a junkyard. Must be cool to have something that your grandpa bought new!

Yeah, is this FWD or RWD??? I know in another thread you said it was a Fleetwood, which were both FWD and RWD for that year.
