1975 Cadillac Fleetwood
What you are looking at is a fantastic example of a rare 1975 Cadillac Fleetwood, the Flagship of the General Motors Company for over five decades.
The Good: This example was purchased form an estate sale last year from the original owner. It has just 59,XXX original mile on it and is in far above average condition. The interior is very rare one year only optional brocade velvet with no tears, wear or stains (also has adjustable foot rests in rear compartment). The engine compartment has been detailed to include exact reproduction decals throughout and is 500 cid, yes 8.3 L. It seems to have had one repaint sometime in its life and is over all 99% rust free(minor rust starting at edges of vinyl roof). Every option made that year except sunroof, even has an 8 track begging for some Elvis tunes.
The bad: A/C is currently not working, I have had several GM cars of this era and most of the time it is the seals, the compressors they used are nearly bulletproof (Ford used them in their vehicles and even Rolls Royce…factoid of the day).
The ugly: main seal is leaking, I am afraid to use any stop leaks or additives, it doesn’t burn a drop of oil but uses about ½ a quart per tank of gas. It is fine around town but if I was going to drive across country I would fix (I have driven back and forth to Dallas twice without any issues). I have the seal ($8), have received estimate to replace and will replace prior to delievery if buy now price met. Vinyl roof in last couple months is starting to crack; got an estimate of $600 to replace roof (if I was going to keep I was going to put a fake canvas convertible navy blue top, would look great against the silver blue)
I have lowered the buy now andopening bidprice $2000 and taken off the reservebecause of loss of indoor storage and roof starting to crack. Dash and door panels are crack free, minor cracks in steering wheel, afraid with outdoor storage this will get worse though I keep it cover (cover included)
