Im thinking Calais, due to the absence of a vinyl top, although, thats not conclusive, comments???

My mom had a 66 Coupe de Ville without a vinyl roof. They very became popular on the 67's.

Apparently according to this site, the calais had the Cadillac emblem and the V shaped trim underneath it, the De Ville did'nt. http://mywebpages.comcast.net/kowalskis/misc_pgs/bobs_1966_cadillac.htm

Both the DeVille and the Calais had the V trim under the hood emblem in 1966. The Eledorado had a wreath instead. So this car could be a DeVille too.

Yes, I agree with philr. The "v" was used for all non-Fleetwood/Eldoardo models.

I was speaking from what I had read on the 2 links I supplied.

I believe you Firebird86. The information provided on those sites is erroneous. Our 66 Coupe de Ville had a "V" crest on the hood and the trunk lid.

Um, I know this debate is about 5 years after the fact but it is a 1966 Coupe DeVille as the interior trim around the windows is polished stainless steel (look inside the car on the passenger side). The Calais had painted window trim to match the entior color of the car. So this car is either dark blue or grey or green and so the interior window trim would be color matched to the cloth/vinyl color and not polished stainless as you see in the picture.

My two sense.

Well, your 2 cents has caused a belated listing change.
Thanks, Sircorey.
(Isn't it great we have so many folks with their own special knowledge to contribute to the cause?)
