Whether you are looking for a vehicle to drive to work or to drive your family around
town, this highly customized 1960 Cadillac Coupe DeVille is just what you need. It
features a Biarritz trim option and a 4L80E automatic transmission. It also has an
Adaptive Suspension system, Saddle Tan leather upholstery, and a Bosch II anti-lock
Adaptive Suspension system
Adaptive suspension systems allow the driver to select the settings that are most
comfortable for the driver. They eliminate the trade-offs between ride and handling.
This type of system is typically found on high performance cars.
Adaptive suspensions are available on many 1960 Cadillac Coupe DeVille vehicles. They are also used by
Lexus, Volvo, and Jaguar. Some Cadillacs even have Magnetic Ride Control. These
systems adjust the shock absorbers up to 200 times per second to deliver optimal
damping. By switching between the stiff Tour mode and the softer Track/Race mode,
the driver can adjust the level of control.
The 1960 Cadillac Coupe DeVille‘s standard power braking system features front-axle discs. The
system also features a dual hydraulic master cylinder that provides independent
operation of the front and rear braking systems. It also features an automatic
vacuum release parking brake that will not lock up with the engine running.
Bosch II anti-lock braking system
Previously available as an option, the Bosch II anti-lock braking system for highly
customized 1960 Cadillac Coupe Deville sounds is now a standard feature. This
system is a reliable, easy-to-use system that reduce braking distance and brake
pressure, and helps prevent wheel lockup in emergency braking situations.
This system is designed to help prevent wheel lockup and flat spots that result from
excessive braking force. Its effectiveness depends on two things: how quickly it
detects a wheel locking tendency, and how quickly it reacts to changing conditions.
The Bosch II system was introduced in 1978, after Bosch acquired Teldix. Teldix had
been working on an electronically controlled antilock braking system for vehicles for
five years. The system worked well and was well received by the automotive
4L80E automatic transmissions
M’s 4L80E automatic transmission was created as an upgrade for the Turbo Hydramatic TH400. It was first introduced in 1991 as part of the GM C/K Trucks line up.

overdrive gear, two-speed sensors, and a lock-up torque converter. It is available

The torque converter is controlled by a PWM lockup solenoid. It has an input speed
sensor that monitors the speed of the engine. The output speed sensor compares
the output shaft sensor speed to determine the torque converter speed.
