The 1960 model year was an impressive beginning to a new decade. During the Sixties, Cadillac styling became more graceful and restrained as Bill Mitchell gradually unified the design. Few new engineering advances were introduced, but orderly design development and a conservative styling approach set Cadillac apart from other luxury makes and maintained its reputation as “The Standard of the World.” To the American public, Cadillac remained a symbol of prestige, success, and good taste.
The DeVille was a more luxurious and better equipped version of the Cadillac CalaisMinor trim variations and slightly richer interiors separated DeVilles from Calais. Tiffany style chrome signature scripts were again found above the body side molding on the rear fenders. DeVille equipment lists were comprised of all the same features found on Calais models plus power operated window regulators; rear cigarette lighters in all styles and two-way power front seats.
