1967 Cadillac Restoration

1967 cadillac restoration

The 1967 Coupe de Villes were extensively restyled. Prominent styling features were given a powerful frontal appearance with forward-leaning front end, long sculptured body lines, and redefined rear fenders that had more than just a hint of tail fins in them. The full-width forward-thrusted "eggcrate" grille was flanked by dual stacked headlights for the third consecutive year. Rectangular parking lamps were built into the outer edges of the grille. Minor trim variations and slightly richer interiors separated de Ville from Calais. Tiffany style chrome signature scripts were again found above the body side molding on the rear fenders. Coupe de Ville and Calais got a new roofline, inspired by the Florentine show car created for the 1964 New York World's Fair. As on that show car, the quarter window glass retracted rearward into a sail panel. The 1967 Coupe de Ville equipment lists included all the same features found on Calais models plus power operated window regulators; rear cigarette lighters in all styles and two-way power front seats. A slide-out fuse box and safety front seat back lock for two-door models were additional Cadillac advances for the 1967 model year.
