Feeling a little poetic, the brochure copywriters for the 1982 Cadillac Coupe deVille began their description: “There is something very special about owning a 1982 Cadillac. It’s ride and pride…the room inside.” Okay, so the rest of it didn’t rhyme at all, but it was still very Cadillac. Standard all ’82 deVilles was Cadillac’s “remarkable new HT 4100 Digital Fuel Injection Power System with a smooth new V8 engine and automatic overdrive.” The engine itself was a 4.1L unit rated at 125 hp. If buyers wanted a $165 credit, they could opt for a Buick-sourced 4.1L V-6, which was strangely also rated at 125 hp. Saw this one last week in North Tonawanda, with the still-intact David Cadillac dealership trunk badge and Ronald Reagan for President bumper sticker.
