Cadillac's historic tradition of being the "Standard of the World", was put into practice with the 1971 model year lineup, as the Coupe De Ville was noted as revolutionizing the realm of luxury automobiles. Beyond the beautifully sculpted exterior, the Coupe De Ville boasted an array of new conveniences, luxuries, and engineering innovations, all meticulously crafted to ensure a seamless, quiet, and comfortable driving experience.

Sold new by Fries Cadillac Company to Mr. and Mrs. Kern of Pennsylvania, this 1971 Cadillac Coupe De Ville would live a pampered life and rarely see the open road throughout its 53 years. All original inside and out, this fine example shows just 17,254 original miles on the odometer. Ordered new with $980 of optional equipment and accessories, it was also delivered new to the dealership with a slick-top, not the typical and more common landau vinyl top. Other optional equipment included whitewall tires, an AM/FM radio, soft ray glass, six-way front seat adjuster, headlamp control, and the $500 automatic climate control unit. The Dynasty cloth interior was the the epitome of luxury for the early '70s; it is remarkably original and has been very well taken care of in its 53 years of life.

Under the long stretched-out hood, is a mechanically sound 472-cubic-inch V-8 engine that pushes out a smooth 345 horsepower and 500 pounds-feet of torque and awaits to float its occupants down the road in style. Within the last few years, this Cadillac has had a handful of notable mechanical repairs which include new front and rear brakes, new upper control arms, bushings, master cylinder, new exhaust system, new air-conditioning compressor, new front and rear shocks, four new tires, and new headlamps.

Presenting its next caretaker with the opportunity to either keep this Cadillac as a low mileage example or thoroughly enjoy it as much as they desire, as it has much life yet to live, this Coupe De Ville is just as stylish and pronounced with luxury today, as it was new in 1971.
