Custom 1969 Cadillac De Ville Is A Battleship Wagon For True Longroof Enthusiasts

Attention wagon lovers of the internet, this is not a drill; a custom British Racing Green 1969 Cadillac De Ville Hardtop Wagon with a 472ci (7.7 liters!) V8 engine hiding under the enormous bonnet can now become yours.

According to the seller, this example is just one of a handful of wagons to have been built for the 1969 Indianapolis 500 as courtesy vehicles.

It’s of course based on the De Ville sedan and was originally finished in Cameo Beige, before getting a repaint back in 1998 in the current British Racing Green. The interior is finished in caramel faux alligator leather upholstery. The 7.7-liter V8 is paired to a three-speed automatic transmission.

Additional features of this gorgeous, pillarless wagon include a set of Torq Thrust wheels, a 1970 front grille, power windows, and door locks, tinted windows, and a sunroof.

The brightwork on the body looks to be in good condition, including the door mirrors, the grille, the front bumper, and the roof rack. The paint is not perfect, as it shows cracks and chips, and there’s some overspray on some of the chrome bits.

In fact, this is not one of those perfect-condition cars we sometimes come across; the air-conditioning doesn’t currently blow cold, the exhaust system needs replacing and there are no records on the actual mileage this Caddy has covered, with the odometer showing just 5k miles.

However, when the spec is that good you can’t help but picture yourself road-tripping the hell out of this wonderful battleship across the country. Head over to Bring A Trailer to follow the auction, which ends in a couple of hours.
