800 Derita Road, Ste. A
This 1965 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham 60 Special is a premium classic cruiser that's complete right down to its big 429 V8. But there's also the right upgrades like a continental kit and modern air conditioning. So you know its cool factor is the only thing that outweighs this long, low classic sedan.
True Cadillac fans know the value of the top-of-the-line Fleetwood. So, a big executive sedan like this only gets more prestigious with age, and for some, the 1965 redesign is the ultimate car. The stacked headlights that stretch out like pontoons; the long artful hood that starts at a crisp point and creates a style line that doesn't end until the rear doors; and sharp fins that were placed above and below the taillights. Even the wheel package is elegantly terrific with bright wire wheels, whitewall tires, and rear fender skirts. Those who appreciate classic style will enjoy the fact that this appears to be largely an original car, and it even retains the correct Ascot Gray paint. Of course, there's always room for the right upgrades. This was a car that celebrated its size, and it always knew how to make a grand entrance. So it certainly seems fitting that it's now capped off with a continental kit.
The Fleetwood Brougham was all about being the pinnacle of luxury and style, and the interior is a direct reflection. When you open the door, you'll love seeing the intricate light blue interior that coordinates so nicely with the exterior gray. This has been restored in the right places, like the headliner, carpeting and door seals to deliver a proper luxury Cadillac feeling. And the wreath pattern on the seats are an instant reminder this is the top of the class. The handsome instrument panel is centered around the driver, with a skinny steering wheel that's easy to see through to the wide speedometer spanning the width of the instrument panel. It's easy to get comfortable in this Caddy with features like the power seat, fold-down armrests, and tilt/telescope steering column. There are even very cool features like the power windows with provisions for power vent windows. And since this is the kind of classic that has enough room for all your family and friends, it's great to have recently serviced R134a air conditioning.
Even with all these great features, there is one BIG reason you really want this sedan: the 429 cubic-inch engine. The V8 looks very correct under the hood, right down to the blue on the block and valve covers. This is believed to be the original motor. And you have the combination of low mileage and a well-maintained package that creates a strong powerhouse for this classic. Topped with a four-barrel carburetor, this monster motor makes big power and big torque to move all this sheetmetal with ease - especially when paired with the three-speed Turbo-Hydramatic automatic transmission. It's finished off with a dual exhaust that strikes just the right tone of power without losing the Cadillac poise. As expected from a Cadillac, the rides have a smoothness that soaks up bumps like a hovercraft. As you're enjoying the road trip, the power steering and power brakes (with newer booster) are there to keep you comfortably in control.
Complete with maintenance records, an executive-level classic Caddy never goes out of style. So you know this one has the right look and features to be your new favorite vintage cruiser. Call now!
