1969 Cadillac DeVille Convertible

Recommended Posts

Hi guys ! 

Sharing with you today this Jo-Han's 1969 Cadillac Deville convertible, my first build of 2019. It's a promo that I have converted into the convertible version, as Jo-Han never proposed this specific model. ( just the Coupe Deville and the Eldorado ). If I recall, I think I got that promo for 3 bucks about 15 years ago because it was totally damaged. Half of the roof was gone, such as A pillars and windshield. The body looked like a cat had chew big parts of it, was full of little dents and most of the original paint was scratched. I didn't know what to do with it at the time but I couldn't let it go, so I kept it and restored it. I have detailed the interior with carpet, wood-ish inside panels, created a soft boot and added front seat's headrests and wider white walls.  For the colour, I tried to get as close as its original one, such as Sapphire blue Met. Still a few details to finish yet, such as antenna, scripts and mirrors but overall this is it. Hope you'll like it. ;)

Beautiful looking Caddy. Perfect color combination and the interior is very realistic looking. The only thing that catches my eye is the lack of vent windows but I like it as it is.

I like that! I have two unbuilt 69 Cadillacs, one a Promolite Resin (absolutely beautiful) and a JoHan kit. The Promolite resin kit came with a boot. A friend of mine had a Black one with a Red Interior that is almost as pretty as the one you built.
