Here's your opportunity to get your hands on a distinctive example of the new class of classics. This 1986 Cadillac Sedan DeVille Fleetwood is a value-priced cool cruiser that's loaded with options and comes with the kind of original details that most of us find irresistible.

This shows all signs of being the original Light Driftwood paint. Not only is it the perfect color to represent the era, but also it provides a great canvas to showcase the excellent brown vinyl roof. This car has only averaged about 1,500 miles annually, and so it has seen great care. That's why you have all the right details, including mirror-like chrome bumpers, complete fender end caps, and intricate wire wheel covers. While this has a very nice factory style, there is also a very distinct custom package. You have an awesome-looking two-tone pinstripe that combines a vibrant red that brown that coordinates with the vinyl top. There's even a nice Roadster script on the front fenders and trunk. It suggests the custom look this one is going for with the detailed roof package and rear luggage rack. This wasn't a factory option, but it's exactly the kind of thing that a dealer would do back in the day to add extra distinction to some of the most expensive cars on the lot.

Inside is plush Cadillac comfort. This is a full-sized sedan so you can choose to seat six, or fold down the armrests in both rows to give four people individual pillow-tufted leather comfort. Of course, it's the driver who's always the most important. This sedan was built to keep you comfortably in control, and so all the essential components are within your fingertips. It includes everything from the automatic climate control to the digital trip computer. As a true Cadillac, this is loaded with features like a power driver's seat, power locks, power steering, power mirrors, a tilt steering column, and provisions for R134a air conditioning (will need a charge/service before fully blowing cold again.) They have even neatly integrated an AM/FM/CD touchscreen stereo that includes Bluetooth. So you get the best in modern driving music in this vintage Cadillac.

Under the hood is the correct-style 4.1-liter motor. This fuel-injected V8 has a terrific mix of good preservation and maintenance. So you'll like everything from the factory decals to the fresh hoses. It fires up like a well-respected FI machine should. The V8 can deliver a hint of growl when you feel like digging into the accelerator, but really, you'll just love the effortless torque and smooth composure during everyday driving. The four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive gives it great off-the-line response and pleasant highway manners. And cruise control means this classic Caddy remains a great long-distance tourer. Add in a fully independent suspension that's supple yet athletic, as well as front disc brakes, and you get a competent car that loves the grand touring experience.

Complete with owner's manual, this is a great driver for anyone who appreciates a proper Cadillac or wants to get into vintage car at a value price. You know this well-presented Fleetwood is a fleeting opportunity, so call today!
