Note: The 1973 Cadillac Calais models had a bench front seat with a fold-down center armrest. The seat was manually adjustable, but a six-way power adjustment was an option. Dual Comfort front seats were not available on Calais models. An expanded vinyl interior was optional (listed below). Mayfair Cloth was introduced for the Calais in 1972 and was so popular, it returned in 1973 with a different sew pattern.

Genuine Sierra-Grain Leather upholstery is shown at left in Antique Medium Maize, a golden shade. A new sewing technique of ending each sew line with a tied-down button on the seat back is unusual. Leather was available for both the Coupe deVille and Sedan deVille in 1973, and was frequently ordered.

Note: A Brougham d'Elegance trim option was announced during the 1973 model year. Specifics regarding the interior trim indicate that initially, customers could choose either Sierra Grain Leather or Medici Crushed Velour at no difference in cost. Leather was available in five colors plus White with four carpeting colors. Medici Velour was available in four colors. The cost of the Brougham d'Elegance option was $750. There is, however, conflicting information on this that indicates Leather never made it to production. We will continue to research and update this information as new and/or better facts are verified.
