1977 Cadillac Coupe DeVille

Cadillac is among the first automobile brands in the world, second in the United States only to another General Motors division, Buick. The firm was founded from the remains of the Henry Ford Company in 1902. It was named after Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac, who founded Detroit, Michigan on Great Lakes of the United States. Soon Detroit became world famous as Motor City, or Motown for music lovers.

By the time General Motors purchased the company in 1909, Cadillac had already established itself as one of America's premier luxury car makers. Its precision parts were all interchangeable and this facilitated for the mass production of automobiles and, more specifically, the production line. Cadillac led the way technologically by introducing full electrical systems, the clashless manual transmission and the steel roof. The brand developed three engines, with its V8 setting the standard for over a century in America,

Cadillac models are now distributed in 34 additional markets worldwide. In 2019, Cadillac sold 390,458 vehicles worldwide, which was a brand record.

Mick and Irene’s Cadillac Coupe DeVille at Morpeth.



Mick and Irene’s Cadillac Coupe Deville, is a 1977 United States build. As with all Cadillacs, this car was highly desirable, expensive and luxurious in the 1970s. It still is. It is a 2-door five-seater statement of prestige. Owning a Cadillac like this was a mark of a person’s success and distinction. Mick and Irene have owned their pride and joy since 2018. It is powered by 6.9 litre V8 motor which provides effortless power and torque delivered smoothly, without fuss or bluster, with the smoothest of delivery through a three-speed automatic gearbox. It has electric ignition, electric seats, window and mirrors, air conditioning and power steering.

Mick and Irene are very active members of Maitland Classic Motor Association and their Cadillac can often be seen gracing the roads of Maitland and the Lower Hunter Valley.
