During the 1970s, Cadillac, like many domestic car makers, was going through a period of change. Although one in every eight Cadillac owners had opted for a convertible during the mid-1960s, the demand for convertibles was dwindling. Even after the fuel crisis, Cadillac's reputation for luxury continued with numerous cars powered by the mighty 500 cu-in V8 engine. In 1977, a completely new Cadillac was launched with smaller body dimensions and engine size, aimed at increasing fuel efficiency. This meant that 1976 was the last year for full-sized luxury cars with the 500 cu-in engine. As a result of decreased demand and concerns about government regulations surrounding convertibles, Cadillac was the only US manufacturer to offer a convertible in 1976, dropping the convertible model for 1977. Although convertibles slowly started to be produced again during the 1980s, none of them can compare to the legendary full-sized luxury convertible that is still commonly known as the “last convertible ever.”
