Looks like a Series 62 to me.   But then, I could be wrong.

Bruce, you're correct; it's definitely not a CDV. Door panels and manual windows are Ser 62.

Bruce, you are not wrong: the letter "G" from the VIN is for a 6267 coupe.

an interesting web site--- some of the brief descriptions are unintentionally humorous, such as--"a great winter restoration project." for one of the cars that has a locked engine, locked drive train, etc.   


I think it(red one) was labeled that way, so you wouldn't find it, if it was "correct".   My series 62 car is titled as "CVD" because in this state, that's the only description they have for Cad coupe titles.  So don't let correctness worry you. 
Several have been looking for '60s parts.  Caveat Emptor.

Yes, James, "needs full restoration" etc. has a wide application...  Some of these auctions are very big and they have to catalog hundreds of junks in a short time and many don't specialize in auto haven't seen some of these vehicles and in such shape they're hard to recognize.
