Cadillac Sedan deVille


Bright body underscores with rear extensions distinguished the DeVille externally. There were also DeVille signatures on the rear roof pillar. Equipment specifications were comparable to 1972. The DeVille was actually a Calais with added trim, richer appointments, rear arm rest and standard power seat.
