The vehicle was used by the county to transport county officials to and from the local airport. We purchased the car directly from the government agency along with some other items, not from a dealer or broker, simply turning it into cash. After transporting the unit back to our shop, we washed it and took photos/video for eBay. The county administration quit using it many years ago and it sat at the local county airport idle since then, the miles are actual at 44k, even though it sat idle for several years, we stuck a new battery in it, some fresh fuel and it fired right up, the engine runs great but does need a complete servicing to include all new filters and fluids, it does not overheat, slobber oil or anything like that, has a hole in the muffler, the check engine light is on but again it runs fine, the battery light is on because the alternator is not charging – alternator is easy to get to and replacement shouldn’t take 30 minutes / $70-$80 part on eBay, the paint and clear coat are faded/gone and has caused a great deal of surface rust, especially on the hood and trunk lid, simply needs a good sanding and paint job after replacing the plastic pieces on rear quarter panels and front corners, those can be found on the internet as well – did see the set of rear quarter panel plastic fender extensions on eBay for $150, the vinyl roof is cracking, driver’s side leather seat has some wear, dash panel is cracked, the power seat is not operating forward/backward, rearview mirror is detached but is available, the front tires have some side wall dry rot and all tires have been sitting for years so would buy a set before driving too far, the windshield is cracked and again is a cheap replacement ($100), other than that what you see is what you get, we have not repaired, refurbished and/or tried to do anything to this vehicle except put a new battery in it, clean it and market it the way you see it, it was 100% functional when the County quit using it to transport county officials back and forth from the airport, it sat at the airport in North Mississippi not being used for many years, use and enjoy it like it is or buy some tires, some plastic,paint it, service/lube the engine and have a nice, classic Cadillac limo, the car is being sold with a clean title and Bill of Sale, regardless of age and condition we are selling this unit AS-IS and with absolutely NO RESERVE~ The photos and video were taken the day of the listing on February 27, 2020 and show the vehicle in its current condition!
