I had some general questions the other day about finding parts for the older Cadillacs. Got some good information. Thanks for your responses. I thought I'd post another couple of pictures of the deVille. Let me know what you think?
She's a beauty, Nate! Love the subtle dark green (or is it blue?) paint.

It's a dark green. Most people think the car is black.

While I'm not usually a fan of big rims, I do like the style of those (they don't detract from the look of the car or look like they belong on some jacked up truck like most big rims do).
I do love the look of the early 70s coupes when they're slammed, and the paint color on yours is great (appears to be a dark teal?)
Nice ride Nate.
Got any interior pics

Looks very nice,I'm not a big fan of over sized rims, but they look good on your car, overall a very nice clean car.

Gorgeous Nate! Love the color, is that tan leather interior?

@talismandave: Here's a shot of the interior. It's kind of a 'tan' leather. It's not too bad for being original interior. At some point I'd like to give the inside a new interior. I'm just having a heck of a time trying to find parts for this car. lol

Beautiful, love it Nate. Welcome to the forum.
I like the rims too.
I am having some difficulties finding new rims that fit under the Eldo due to the FWD...

Gorgeus car, N8. It must have been well preserved... Or restored? I prefer original rims but... Itīs your car :) Interior seems in great shape. I would just clean it professionally if necessary. Getting new leather the same quality than original and a good work will cost a fortune (I tell you from experience).
I hope you are lucky finding parts with the links we posted for you. Recently I made a new order to Rockauto (distributor, belts, tie strut and stabilizer bar bushings, steering box...). Living in Spain I have been able to locate everything that my 69 needed (a lot of parts) and only an exterior mirror missing. You may check in my resto thread how it was when I bought it: http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/rwd-19xx-1984-deville-fleetwood-1985/232166-69-sedan-de-ville-official-restoration.html
Congrats, man :thumbsup:
