Yes, it is a 1979 Coupe Deville Phaeton. The color is Western Saddle Firemist with antique saddle interior and dark brown cloth top. Only 2,400 custom Phaeton editions were made in '79, and very few were in Western Saddle.

I should know, I own this car's twin. :)

I love the way the drug-addled, paranoid Henry Hill (Ray Liotta) charges around in this wallowing land yacht (with the handling of a futon) in the 1980 segment of this film.

Another triplet to add to Benzilla's twin. I too chased this car's double for years. Finally succeeded this past April

These models actually dropped the DeVille moniker and were know as Custom Phaeton Coupe and Custom Phaeton Sedan.
On the body and dash where you'd find the DeVille script you got a Phaeton scipt instead.

Actually, the dash still says DeVille.

it's a difficult car to drive whether you are stoned or not and it's definetly a Coupe DeVille

Yeah driving a car that's probably 225 inches long isn't an assignment for a cokehead.

The one song that will always remind me of this awesome coupe deville is Jump into the Fire by Harry Nilsson which actually played during the sequence involving this car. Whenever I hear that song I cannot stop myself from thinking about that car. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8QghwNqlCRE

What makes this car a "Phaeton", except just as a label?

My boss has a fourth identical Phaeton (quadruplets :) ) - he was looking for years for a white-and-navy blue one but got the bronze one instead.

There's a number of features only available on the Phaetons, of which only 2400 were made, including the colour schemes and canvas roof.

It's a big car, yes, but being stoned on cocaine kind of hinders your motor skills, so driving any vehicle on coke is no easy task, let alone a 225 inch Cadillac.

I like the scene where he's paying more attention to the helicopter than driving and almost rear ends a stopped car. He slams on the brake pedal and also the floor mounted e-brake pedal.

Is driving stoned on coke similar to driving drunk?

No, cocaine has different effects on the body than alcohol.

I wonder whatever happened to this particular vehicle, considering it was used in several productions apparently in 1989-90, etc.

Looks like it's missing a piece of trim on the bumper.
