Get in your time machines, and travel back to 1985. Shop around the the local Cadillac lot for a real head turner, a true "Cadillac Car." What you would pick out is a White over Red Fleetwood Brougham. Full sized, traditional Cadillac, in the most "Cadillac Color" available. This '85 Fleetwood is the closest thing you can find to that new car you missed out on in 1985. Recently pulled out of the original owner’s tight grasp, this car has not been for sale in nearly 32 years. Bought new, driven easy, and cherished as a classic. In those 32 years, she has logged only 16,830 miles on the odometer. Most of the miles were accumulated in the first 12 years of the cars life (1997 the car had logged 15,566 miles on it at its annual MA inspection). In the next 19 years just over 1,300 miles were added. Every year coming out for a state inspection, sometimes only logging 2-5 miles on from the last year. When the owners finally realized it was time to give up their beloved Cadillac Brougham, it was acquired by me. I am a Cadillac enthusiast/dealer, and have many Fleetwoods/ Broughams in my personal collection, down to a '90 D'elegance with a mere 10,006 miles on it. In a perfect world, we would keep them all, but sometimes we just come to realize that we cannot. The car is a true masterpiece, a time capsule of a very iconic time for Cadillac. You will be the official second owner of the car, receiving the original MA title from '85. The car is well optioned with wire wheel caps, leather interior, dual power seats with passenger recline, automatic climate control, Cadillac Symphony Sound, power trunk pull down, and more. The car was also rust proofed with good old "Rusty Jones!"
How do you describe a 16,830 mile car? Like new, excellent, showroom are all terms that come to mind. This car is near close to that. Beautiful original white paint over soft, rich red leather. The paint on the car is glossy, smooth, and in great shape. Recent updates include new filler panels in the rear (both quarters, license plate, and silver bumper filler), as well as both front fender fillers. Paint was matched very well! The vinyl top is original, soft, pliable, and free of any defects. It is snow white! The stitching is intact and a beautiful detail to the top. Open up the interior and you will smell exactly what you would have in 1985 when this car was new. There has never been any major reconditioning of the interior to lose that original Cadillac leather smell. All surfaces are free of any fading, tears, splits, or gross wear. The seats are soft and the leather is grainy and rich. The steering wheel, driver’s door panel, and front carpet by the door sill are all tribute to the condition and light use of this car. You can feel the crisp grain and stitching in the leather wrapped wheel, something every Cadillac enthusiast should experience! I highly doubt the rear seat was sat in but a hand full of times. The chrome details, switches, and bright trim are all key factors in the level of this car. Open the glove box to find the original manual case with the appropriate books and brochures. Also you will find the Gold Key Delivery cassette that will congratulate you on your new Cadillac purchase. Pop the deck lid and you will find a gently used cargo area, with stain-free, clean carpeting and coverings. The original wire wheel lock key is present along with a box of misc. air filters and Fram oil filters. Under the hood you will find one of the smoothest running HT4100 V8's. I have had, and currently own these motors and this one is the nicest running I have ever felt. Smooth, quiet, and it does what it is supposed to. So showroom, like new, perfect? Damn near close. There are a few minor blemishes I will point out. Exterior- There is a slight series of chips on the right front L shaped filler panel under the headlights. This was not touched up, but could easily be. The stainless trim on the left rear lower quarter has a small pen tip size ding on the top edge. Interior- next to the "Cadillac" script on the dash strip chrome shows two hairline cracks. I see this in so many of these cars it’s not funny. The plastic chrome finish is so shinny and perfect, I decided not to pursue replacement. Both sun visors show fabric lifting in the material. The headliner is original and beautiful, but in a few small spots shows signs of compromise. I do not want to touch it, or run the risk of any damage. Under the hood is very clean, showing only a few chips, discolored bolt heads etc. It is very VERY clean. All the door jambs are clean and bright; the hinges are still covered in most of the applied rust preventive from new. Basically this car is amazing! I would scale it on a 9.9 of ten, given the few things I picked off. I have both sets of keys as well. If you are in the market for a fine motor car, this is the one to act on. Offered at NO RESERVE. This car will be sold to the highest bidder. Please ask all the questions you would like, I will do my best to answer every one of them. The car can be viewed in person as well prior to the end of the auction! Please scroll down and use the inside scroll bar to see over 160 pictures of this beautiful Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham!
