Can anyone tell me where to find out the length of an 84 coupe deville? I'm pretty sure it would be the same from 80-84. I'm trying to decide whether or not I want to get mine back, and I'm hoping it fits in my barn with room for another car. But I want to make sure first.

Actually my 75 is 231" long which is 19'3' so an 84 is shorter by 10", making it 18'5."

I would guess an '84 is either 221" or 221.2". A '74-'76 CDV was the longest CDV ever at 230.7".

Hmm. The cadillac history and cadillac ready reckoner both list the 74-76s at 231, same as the sedans. Weird.

According to the Cadillac brochures and magazine articles and road tests...

'74-'76 Calais & De Villes..... 230.7"
'74-'76 Fleetwood Brougham... 233.7"
'74-'76 Fleetwood 75 Limo... 252.2"

Maybe some sources just round off 230.7" to 231"?

Checked my brochure and I suppose they are 230.7." This damn well better not make my 75 shorter than my friend's 76 Continental Town Coupe.

The '77 Lincolns are 233". I don't know how long the '76s are- but it would be very close!

DAMN IT. DAMN IT TO HELL.

Ok, how wide are they?
Don't feel too bad... the Cadillac has a longer wheelbase and a bigger engine.
Here are some specs for a '75 Coupe de Ville and Lincoln Town Coupe (From Motor Trend, Dec., 1974)

---------------------- CDV----------- Lincoln
Wheelbase------------ 130"----------- 127.2"
Overall length--------- 230.7"---------- 232.8"
Overall width---------- 79.8"----------- 79.6"
