Fleetwood 1956

Title Status Clear
Exterior Color Black
Interior Color Gray


35,585 actual miles. This is a survivor. Bought new by Bakery & Confectionery Workers Local Union for one of its officials. Then sold to Revrend Picard in 1957. He sold it to the 3rd owner in 1978 and that person kept it until 2002. Rare factory a/c, most houses didn't have air in 1956!

EXTERIOR: Looks like a car right out of the Godfather movie. Very clean original metal. Body is straight, fits nice, doors shut like a new car. The exterior was repainted 1 time several years ago. There are blemishes- cracks and touch ups but it shows well standing next to it. Chrome and trim is also good original. Not pitted or dented but has some wear. Has 1978 Chicago city sticker still in windshield. Also has a crack in the windshield. There are air inlets on each rear 1/4 for the a/c system.

INTERIOR: Original interior from carpet to headliner. Well preserved unabused survivor condition. Nothing torn or broken. The seats are still nice and firm, upholstery is slightly discolored from age. The dash area is beautiful. Padded dash is excellent with no splits, has autronic eye (auto headlight dimmer). All the chrome sparkles. Lenses, knobs and instruments are excellent. Big beautiful steering wheel has no cracks in the plastic. The wonder touch radio works. The coolest part about this car is the factory air conditioning. It's a big unit in the trunk with clear plastic tubes running up to the headliner. There are chrome vents overhead at all four corners. It also features power windows and seat.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Also original condition. Not caked in grease or rust but never polished and painted either. Smooth running 365 V-8 with all original components. It also features factory air conditioning, it is complete and functional. Also has power steering and brakes, windshield washers. Original registration card from 1957 is still in the card holder in front of radiator!

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Big enough to fit several bodies. All original, fully lined and carpeted. Has spare, jack and even a wedge block of wood from Cadillac to keep car from rolling off the jack stand. A/C unit is located in the trunk.

UNDERSIDE: Rust free, original underside. Rock solid original floors with Factory Cadillac sound deadener. Frame is smooth, clean steel. Shocks and exhaust were replaced. Has quiet duals with mufflers and resonators.

Impressive, big black mafia looking Cadillac makes a statement. Low mile survivors are not exactly easy to find, they are original only once!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.

Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.

Don't be intimidated, contact sales now for a no pressure, no hassle experience!
