Mobster Approved: 1972 Cadillac Coupe DeVille

This next car isn't the car that Robert De Niro's character (Ace Rothstein) drove in Casino, because that was an El Dorado...but it probably has similar bomb absorbing underbody panels and is so seriously gangster that I can't help but smile.  This is the kind of car that a gangster like Vito Genovese or Crazy Joe Gallo would drive. Find this 1972 Cadillac Coupe DeVille offered for $6,500 in Pasadena, CA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.

From the seller;

1972 Cadillac CDV
fuel: gas
title status: clean
transmission: automatic
Solid Gold Cadillac with fresh rebuilt engine (orig 472), rebuilt transmission, perfect restored dash board and new tires. Very low miles. Great driver. No RUST or dents. A really nice car.

 See a better way to drive like a mobster?


  1. I was thinking about seeing it in the background of a Dirty Harry movie, but you're right, Vince: something by Scorsese.

  2. Definitely has a "Casino" vibe. I dig it!

    1. Yeah, you probably don't want to mess with the old guy driving this.

  3. The front end is getting dangerously close to Buick territory. After '66 they sort of lost a vibe.....old guys who owned dry cleaners and smoked stogies drove these......Bring a Gas Station

  4. Some googling tells me that the cargo capacity of that big boy is 193 cubic feet. It’ll hold six bodies without any fuss.

  5. That monster has the wingspan of a condor! Imagine the door-dings you could inflict with those things!

  6. This has Ray Liotta written all over it.

  7. Ran in the Cannonball, remember?
