1967 Cadillac sedan DeVille hardtop (no center pillars). Only 46,000 original miles. 429 big block engine with 400 turbo "variable pitch" transmission. New custom bent dual exhaust. New Cragar "500 Eliminator" wheels and new Firestone Firehawk white-letter tires. Also just installed all 4 new shocks. The car drives like a dream and shows well. Interior is beautiful. I take it to car cruises nearly every weekend during the summer. It has all options offered in 1967 including electric windows, "twilight sentinel" lighting, electric trunk release & drawdown, and electric vent windows. This was a "dealer promo" car for showroom display and has all the bells & whistles. This car WILL impress you in person if you're into Cadillacs. Also included is the factory exhaust, stock rims, and hubcaps.

WILL TRADE for an interesting hearse, flower car, ambulance, service car, or 6-door limo... UP or DOWN depending on car values. Prefer pre-1970 but won't rule out other years.

Here's a short video of the car running... the 429 sounds great, even at idle!
(no it doesn't smoke & burn oil, it was 27 degrees and snowing!)

Man that is just one beautiful car. Wish my 67 Calais had all the options, Power windows is the only option I can think of. If the whomever buys it doesn't want the wheels and tires let me know!

Traded the Cadillac off Sunday, picked up a 1969 Mercedes-Benz. This one really appealed to me... Mustang II rack & pinion suspension, tubular A-arms, coil-overs, and a healthy Chevy 350/350 turbo under the hood! A very nice, well built streetmachine in disguise

I've got a set of hubcaps that would fit that Mercedes if you're interested...:beatdeadhorse5:

Me too, they're in the boxes of spare parts where they'll stay!

What size tires were on that Caddy? I love the stance it had.

15" x 7" standard offset wheels, 255/70/R15 on the back, 225/70/R15 on the front. I run this setup often. Depending on the year and if you have fender skirts you have to make slight mods for clearance around the rear tires. To run this tire setup on your '77 you'll only need to pump up your air shocks... still gives a decent ride and keeps the tires from traveling too far up in the quarter panels!
For comparison, here's a shot of my former '80 S&S (same rear wheel openings as your '77) with this tire combo:
