The 1958 Cadillac DeVille, a luxury car from GM’s stable, ceased production in 2005. Over the years, it has inspired numerous custom transformations, particularly the early models, which enthusiasts have converted into striking custom rides.

Among the various DeVille transformations, one standout is a first-generation model that underwent a recent frame-off restoration by an undisclosed American garage. This bespoke creation, characterized by its menacing demeanor, surfaced at the auction house Mecum’s lot, slated for auction later in May at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis.

The striking feature of this DeVille is its enveloping darkness. Cloaked in a deep, partially reflective black hue, it exudes an aura akin to a voracious black hole, seemingly ready to engulf all light in its vicinity.

Retaining the original contours of its predecessor, albeit accentuated by custom modifications, the coupe’s lines, bulges, and adornments meld seamlessly into a single formidable package, veiled by darkness.

Contrasting the prevailing black theme are its wheels sourced from Colorado Custom, measuring 20 inches on all corners and finished in Vogue tires, while Hydroboost disc brakes nestle behind the front wheels.

Augmenting its sinister appeal is its low stance, achieved through a dual-pump air ride suspension system installed beneath the body. Housing a supercharged 6.0-liter engine and a new fuel tank, this DeVille promises potent performance.

Though the power output remains undisclosed, equipped with a Brian Tooley Racing Stage 1 camshaft and an automatic transmission, it’s poised to deliver exhilarating horsepower, channeled through a ceramic-coated exhaust system.

Internally, the custom Caddy embraces the darkness, with black dominating the interior, punctuated only by a chrome tilt steering column and a white steering wheel. Noteworthy features include a custom Autosound stereo system and a dashboard adorned with Holley digital gauges.

Scheduled for auction on May 17 by Mecum, this DeVille aims to fetch at least $245,000, with a potential sale price of $265,000 not out of reach.
