Default 1979 Coupe Islander

Has anyone heard of this car? I've seen pictures of identical cars called a D'Marchand but this one has "Islander" emblems. The car was purchased new from Raines Cadillac in Roslyn, NY.

D'Marchand was a $1600 "dealer installed" option, usually referred to as the "Chicago Edition", two-tone silver over black paint and matching two-tone interior.

there is a Cadillac historical thread in the FAQ .. cant remember what is included, I set it up a long time ago .. but there are several links there that may provide answers. Just keep in mind that that thread also suffered damage on the "upgrade" ..

Cadillac History, the birth of a company: CADILLAC
