Can you imagine being given a classic car but never driving it? Me neither, but the seller of the Pick of the Day, a 1968 Cadillac Coupe de Ville, says that’s the case with this 55,829 original-miles car.
According to the car’s advertisement on ClassicCars.com, it was purchased new by the seller’s grandfather on January 18, 1968, at the Ben Feferman Cadillac dealership in South Bend, Indiana. The seller’s grandparents lived in Michigan and drove the car there until early in 1977, when they moved to Alabama.
In 1991, the car was passed on to the seller’s father, who drove the car to Arizona, where it has been ever since.
“He drove it periodically until 2006.” the seller says in the advertisement. “It has been stored from that time. The Cadillac was passed down to me in 2008, but I’ve not driven it.”
Neither the grandfather nor the father removed the original price sticker from the rear driver’s-side window, though part of the paper sticker has deteriorated.
The seller says his father “has been the only mechanic and has kept a maintenance journal since 1990. He can tell you anything you need to know about the car.”
The seller says the car has new tires, front suspension bushings, brake parts, battery and wiper blades, but still wears its original paint, and its original 472cid, 375 horsepower V8 engine.
The car, the seller adds, is “solid mechanically.”
The car is located in Williams, Arizona, and is offered for $25,500.
