1970 Cadillac Calais Description

This 1970 Cadillac Calais is for sale in our Louisville KY. The Calais name came from the French Town and resort which overlooked the English Channel. With the design being out for 5 years it was getting a little tired and a revamp was scheduled for the following year. The Calais really was a De Ville with just less standard equipment. For instance the power windows and 2 way power seats are standard with the De Ville while the Calais had hand crank windows standard with the power seat optional as well. This particular 70 Calais has all of the options which when you order it you can get it how you want it. That's right this car was ordered, from the factory, and built to the original owners specs. The data tag, which is available, even has his name on it. Owned by him until 2015 this car has had a pampered life and even to this day has less than 69000 miles on it. The exterior is in its original color and looks great due to the restoration of the body in 2001 and has been garaged kept ever since. The rear quarters were replaced as well as some patches on the front quarters which both were completely cut out and removed with new pieces welded in their place. The paint was then laid down giving this Caddie its glass like finish. Pop the hood and you will see the original big block cradled right where it should be. Going through a complete rebuild with less than 2500 miles on it this beauty still has plenty of life left in its second go around. With a cruiser like this you are suppose to be riding in comfort and style. Having that said the AC has been gone through when and has been retrofitted to today's standards. With a ton of money in the car at this point in time, and a ton of receipts to prove it, the transmission was inspected and serviced to insure everything was in tip top shape. Although this work was done a little over 11 years ago the car has had only 2500 miles roughly since being done. Open the door and the black interior is just as comfortable today as it was in 1970. With a slew of options and that classic old school Cadillac ride you would be hard pressed to find even a new car with this much class. Options on this 1970 Cadillac Calais include; AC, AM Radio, Power Seats, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Power Windows, Vinyl Interior, Seat Belts, and Chrome Wheels wrapped in Radial Tires.
