1980 Coupe DeVille. 40k miles.
« on: October 10, 2015, 06:44:59 AM »
I have a two owner CDV, almost original everything. Tilt/tele, leather, cruise, wiper delay, 8-track, vaned wheel covers, carpeted floor mats, trunk mat, remote RS heated mirrors, rear window defog, vinyl top, door edge guards, Firemist Sheffield Gray. Absolutely rust free. Light gray leather is in Perfect condition aside from the sagging visor material, Headliner was replaced last year. I bought it last year & performed a coolant flush, trans flush & filter, engine oil/lube/filter, alignment & new front shocks,The right front shock blew when I pulled it off the trailer. There is a paint defect on the decklid, it just looks like it has worn away. A/C has been converted to 134A. I had the exhaust replaced from the Y connection to the bumper with two(single exh) new mufflers. There are no leaks of any sort. It has new front fillers.. This is the nicest CDV of this type I could find(1980-1981) Non smoker owned. I have a lift at home if underside pictures are requested.   $5950 obo.  704-402-0979

This too nice of a car for me to use as a daily driver. Only 2k miles have been racked up in my three year ownership. It's in need of a a new home.

Gee that's a bit extreme to "strongly dislike" someone for owning a certain car.  Very nice car that appears to nit find a buyer on this forum.  I think it's time for an ebay auction or craigs list. 

Based on the one photo and your description, it sounds like a nice car and you have now owned it quite awhile so must have derived some enjoyment from it's ownership, despite your wife's feelings about it. 

I like that color Grey, conservative but pleasant and in this case the light grey leather is a good match.

Far better chance of selling with plenty of photos all around the car- particularly detailed closeups of typical wear areas such as dash controls- esp of chrome edging on dash (which is so easily ruined by aggressive cleaning), seating (esp driver's), inside trunk, carpeting, interior trim, closeups underhood, exterior chrome, vinyl roof, filler panels etc etc. etc. Should also show of door seams (doors opened, bottom) to show absence or presence of rust. No mention if repainted or original paint.

Location should ALWAYS be stated.
