    My Father had a two tone '79 Sedan DeVille. Black and grey with a red leather interior. Those D'Marchand Coupes always remind me of it.

    Jack both back tires in the air, start it and throw it in gear. lol. Also a good way to see if the back brakes are working.

    It is RWD. If you look under it, you'll see the tranny and driveshaft going to the rear axle.

    The orientation of the engine is also a good clue.

    Put your foot on the accelerator and floor it. If the rear tires screech it is a RWD. If the front tires screech then it is a FWD

    Thats what I was thinking but he can find some grass or dirt and do a little burn out. But we all can tell you that its RWD. A rare breed now a days.

    So I've heard, but in my experience all true FWD cars (Meaning all vehicles that are FWD but can still be recognized as a TRUE car) have their engine facing the same direction as a RWD car.

    RWD car:


    FWD car:


    I'm just going to go with the fact that your DeVille is clearly pre-85 and is thereby a RWD DeVille, as all '82 DeVilles were. You'll know the FWD ones when you see them, because yours is the final RWD body style of the DeVille. After yours came this...thing...this was the first FWD DeVille. They only got more bland as time went on.

    Re: Post a pic of your RWD Caddy!

    So on my way from work I noticed this '59 Cadillac parked outside a mechanic's shop. I pulled in, walk into the office and asked who owned it. Turns out it was one of the mechanics and I asked if I could take a few pictures with my Cadillac. Sadly I wasn't able to take a good distance shot, considered the tight space where the Cadillac was parked. After I took them the owner came back out and we started to talk about how we both liked the big old classic luxury cars since we were young.

    I'm always going back and forth between a 49 Coupe, 59 Coupe or 68 Coupe for the next project and every time I see a 59, I just think I can't go wrong with one. Just a beautiful car.
