Found this SDV for sale nearby, was wondering how much you guys would offer for it, what year it is, etc. Probably wont buy it, but who knows...

1984.

That looks like a nice enough car, personally I hate the dark blue top with the white, the exterior would look much better all white IMO. The price depends on the 'low miles'. I'd say around $2,000.

They started putting the 'winged crests' on the front parking lights in 1984, then in 1985 they restyled the DeVille all together, so that leaves one year. Although I'm pretty good with front ends in general, they changed one or two small things every year that most people miss.


Those aren't the correct wheel covers by the way. I have no idea what those are from.

I think those are mid 80s LeSabre caps with Cad emblems (see how they aren't straight?)...

Car looks great. Nice seats, leather wheel.

Yeah, those wheels are off a mid '80s RWD Lesabre/Electra. The slanted spokes were only used on the Buicks.


I'd start at $2500 and work my way down. Two and a half thousand is barely anything anymore...just enough to buy a "bargain basement" car, so I could definetly justify spending $2,500 on a classic Cadillac in this condition. What's the mileage?

$2500 is the max for this car. Looks physically good in the pics, but who knows about the mechanicals and what a closer inspection would find.

Have seller inspect the car for you. Offer to pay him for the inspection sticker. If you does not pass, you don't have to buy it.

Around here (NJ) $2500 can get you a nice clean 90-92 with a 307 in it and decent mileage. Although not my favorite motor, I would rather have a 307 than a 4100 that's done some towing (notice the hitch on the bumper) in the past. I would pay no more than 1200 and the mileage would have to be under 100K.
