72 Coupe De Ville in Saskatoon

I bought this car from a truck driver who brought it up from the states. It was virtually rust free but for some bubbling in the bottom of the front fenders which were repaired by a professional (trusted friend). The paint, vinyl top and interior were sunburned beyond repair so I sourced seats from a wrecked limosine and all other interior parts from another donor coupe. Some parts that weren't black were painted with vinyl paint. I stripped the car to bare metal and had it painted to match the original blue. The vinyl top was omitted,personal choice, as was the side chrome and rear quarter light because at the time I couldn't find any decent stuff. This all took place thirty years ago and the car has been in a garage ever since, never spent a night outside. Runs great, No smoke, Just tuned it up, AC Delco parts only, and had the transmission serviced and sealed up. Air doesn't work, not hooked up, and doesn't have cruise, horn quit, hard to keep them working in a telescopic steering column. So what I'm saying is it needs a little love to be one hundred percent again. My long term plan was to be a little old man driving around in a Cadillac but it hasn't got a mark on it and I can't stand the thought of banging it up, so off it goes. Bring a trailer the tires are thirty years old, still great but thirty years old. $16.000.72 coupe de ville 001.JPG72 coupe de ville 002.JPG72 coupe de ville 003.JPG72 coupe de ville 004.JPG72 coupe de ville 005.JPG72 coupe de ville 006.JPG72 coupe de ville 007.JPG72 coupe de ville 008.JPG72 coupe de ville 009.JPG72 coupe de ville 010.JPG72 coupe de ville 011.JPG

Really like this car, it has great styling and size, especially like the C pillar and sail panel look on this car. So many cars, so little space. Ugh!
