Cadillac DeVille 1963
Exterior changes imparted a bolder and longer look, but in overall terms the 1963 DeVille was essentially the same as the previous year. Hoods and deck lids were redesigned, the front fenders projected further forward than in 1962 while the tailfins were trimmed down somewhat to provide a lower profile. The slightly V-shaped radiator grille was taller and now incorporated outer extensions that swept below the flush-fender dual headlamps. Smaller circular front parking lamps were mounted in those extensions. Body-side sculpturing was entirely eliminated and a DeVille signature script was incorporated above the lower beltline molding near the rear of the body.
