1968 Cadillac Coup-Deville, Drive the American Dream!

Hi up for sale is my friends 1968, Cadillac Coup De-Ville in a nice white colour, The ideal luxury car from the 60ís.
This old girl is  18.8 foot long and 6.8 feet wide. The auto transmission box is good, and is powered by a 7.7 litre, 472 cubic inch V8 engine with the straight through Twin stainless steel Powerflow exhausts, that sound amazing, this is a real head turner, the sound is unbelievable!
This car glides along so smooth, but at the same time you can here the exhausts burbling from behind, and get a great taste of this cars power and agility.   
The seats are original, and have no stains, rips, or ware and look great along with the door panels and all the switches.
All the lines and shapes are stunning on this car, you know the saying,
{ Cadillacís are muscle cars wearing tuxedoís } and believe me, itís true!
When you drive this car it puts a smile on your face unlike any other car in the world you could chose to drive, this car is one of the best examples of a 1968 Coup De-Ville still around, with itís stacked headlights and big SOLID Chrome bumpers, that shine stunningly in the sun.
The underneath of this car that has  been wax-oiled, and looked after so that this Cadillac will still be around in years to come.
Maybe you think you could buy a Cadillac from around this era, for half the price of this one, but it wont be half the car and it wont be a series 68.
I am selling this for a friend of mine, who is selling due to ill health, but previously I owned this car for 5-6 years and itís been no problems what so ever and has always had regular oil changes and servicing.
There is a small leak in the Trunk/Boot when it rains heavily but Iím sure that problem can be solved in no time.
"There is no replacement for displacement."  This is often said by engine designers in their search of more power from a combustion engine.  Though contemporary technology has offered a nominal argument when it comes to building high-horsepower motors out of smaller engines, trying to hide the fact that "bigger is better" was never more a challenge than it was in 1968.  That was the year Cadillac introduced it's 472 cubic inch V8 into the DeVille line of automobiles, setting an even higher standard of "move out of my way or I'll suck you down my venturas" attitude of American life.  Several years later, a 500 cubic inch V8 was brought to the public, but the Cadillac DeVille saw it's prime in 1968 with a body that measured 18.6 feet.  This was big American steel.

It was a true classic.  Everything from sharp angled corners and long straight lines, to the abundance of shiny chrome and gallons of white paint, it was a classic.  On the road it was smooth and quiet, yet drew attention from all directions.  It was powerful and dominating, yet mature and easy to control.  Heck, it drove its self!  And the monstrous dynamics of its dimensions somehow seemed to also bear a feeling of personal luxury that always transferred to the driving experience.  This was Cadillac!

Air Pistol (CO2 / Gas) - Walther CP88 6" Competition CO2WAL13 as new £145.00

 

CO2 air pistols are high powered semi-automatic weapons that are powered by an internal compressed air gas cylinder. As they do not have to be manually cocked before each shot they are the ideal choice for skirmishing, practical pistol shooting, vermin and pest control or for those who simply have an itchy trigger finger! All CO2 guns on this section are produced under licence from Walther to the same exacting standards as their real-life counterparts, you can therefore be assured that you are buying an exact replica in looks, quality, mechanical performance and weight. All Walther weapons fire at an average velocity of 300fps and can easily fire 2 rounds per second.

You do not need any licence to use or own a CO2 air pistol and with proper use they can be great fun to use, especially with a group of friends on private property. However, you do need to be aware that their misuse can get both you and those around you into an awful lot of trouble.

It is illegal to sell or hire an air gun to a person under the age of 17. As a result, please do not be offended if we ask for proof of your identity and age, as a conscientious seller I reserve the right to refuse any sale without reason.

WALTHER CP88, 6" COMPETITION MODEL, BRCO2WAL13

ē .177 (4.5)

ē 8 Shot pellet only

ē Safety catch

ē Rifled barrel

ē Satin nickel plated action

Due to the introduction of the Governments VCR Bill (Violent Crime Reduction Bill) on 1st October 2007 it is illegal to sell or purchase any air gun over the internet or by mail order. Please call 01706816620 to view
