|1968 Cadillac Calais Coupe and Hardtop Sedan|

The Calais makes no compromise with traditional Cadillac quality. Yet its cost rivals that of lesser cars that either charge extra for many of the Calais standard equipment features or do not offer them at all. For example, standard convenience appointments in the Calais include electric clock, ash receiver light, courtesy lights, automatic glove compartment and trunk lights, map light, remote control outside mirror, door-panel warning reflectors, electric three-speed wipers and washers, wheel covers, visor vanity mirror, trip odometer and many other uniquely Cadillac comforts and luxuries. The two newly styled models for 1968 are readily identifiable by both the Cadillac and the Calais scripts. You'll find that in original cost, dependability and economy of operation, the Calais represents a truly unusual investment in motoring pleasure and value. The Calais owner, like all Cadillac owners, will find his Cadillac returns more of its original investment at resale than any other car built in the land.

|Both Calais models for 1968 now include, as standard equipment, power windows. The power control panel on the driver's side controls all windows. Other windows have single switches for individual passenger operation. Door handles are recessed and the armrests more deeply padded.||Shown below is the Calais Coupe in black vinyl. New door panels, exclusive to Cadillac, are fully molded from the bottom of the armrests to the top of the door to provide a distinctive soft, contoured design.
