RealRides of WNY - 1969 Cadillac

Back when this 1969 Cadillac DeVille was new, the public was pretty much used to two-year (sometimes three-year) styling cycles. The ‘69s were all-new, with “…a new grille, longer hood and contemporary rear deck” among the changes — “…every line and contour has been redesigned for a longer, sleeker look.” The following year was just a refresh, with a new grille pattern, different-shaped taillights, and trim changes — or as Cadillac told us in the 1970 brochure, styling “which clearly looks to the future.” The 1971 models were of course, another total makeover. Came across today’s RealRide about a year ago in Tonawanda, on a lonely, pandemic-driven bicycle ride.
