1970 was the last year the De Ville ever offered the convertible body style. In 1970 a facelift included a grille with 13 vertical blades set against a delicately cross-hatched rectangular opening. Bright metal headlamp surrounds were bordered with body color to give it a more refined look. Narrow vertical “vee” tail lights were seen again, but no longer had smaller V-shaped bottom lenses pointing downward below the bumper. Wheel discs and winged crest fender tip emblems were new. Exterior distinctions came from a De Ville script above the rear end of the belt molding and from the use of long rectangular back up light lenses set into the lower bumper.
