It is long and it is sleek. MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to offer this 1969 Cadillac Series 75 Limousine from a time when Cadillac was the Standard of the World. This was one of 1,156 examples made in 1969 and has been removed from long-term storage out of Deerfield, Florida.
Dressed in stately Sable Black, the paint and trim are in very good order. The windows glass panels are clear and intact. The lights are also clear and crack-free. This limo rides on 235/75R15 whitewall tires at all four corners that surround original factory wheel covers. All of the limousines body panels are straight, the engine bay is very tidy, the battery looks good and the bumpers shine brilliantly.
Under the hood is a 472 CID V-8 engine linked to a Turbo Hydramatic 400 three-speed automatic transmission. Driver assist features include power steering, power brakes, power locks, power windows, power mirrors and power front seat. There are also radio controls, ceiling-mounted floodlights and door locking controls.
Although the previous, modernized engine from 1964 was compact and light for its displacement and output, 429CID represented the limit of the original architecture's expansion, and it had been surpassed byChrysler's440andLincoln's462and460.
As a result Cadillac introduced an all-new engine for 1968. At introduction, the new engine had a 4.30-inch bore and a 4.06-inch stroke for a displacement of 472 CID. "Extensively redesigned" to ease maintenance, it used only 90 percent as many parts and 75 percent as many gasketed joints as before. Used through 1974, it was designed with potential for 600 CID.
Inside, the chauffeurs compartment is upholstered in black with black leather seating while on the other side of the power glass divider, the passenger compartment is done in a medium gray Dubonnet cloth. The front bench is in good order, while the spacious gray rear passenger seat, foot rests and accessory jump seats are also in good shape. The horn, HVAC, and fuel gauge are inoperable. The black instrument panel, as wide as many television sets today, looks good. The factory three-spoke steering wheel is present. The inner door panels, mirror glass and shift lever are all in decent condition. Completing the interior is a factory AM radio.
TheCadillac Series 75 originally replaced the 1935355Eas the company's mainstream car. Although its overall size and character was largely unchanged, the 1969 Cadillac was restyled in theEldoradoimage. An Eldorado-like front fender treatment evolved and helped to emphasize a stronger horizontal design line.Rear quarters were extended to give the car a longer look. There was an all-new grille with dual horizontal headlamps positioned in the outboard step down areas of the grille.The hood was again extended, a total of 2.5inches to add the impression of extra length.Stretched body and trim; Fleetwood emblems and embellishments; doors cut into a formal, high-headroom roof, and generally higher appointment and trim levels continued to mark Cadillac's most luxurious line.Standard equipment included automatic level control, automatic climate control, rear window defogger, four rear ashtrays and 8.20 x 15 four-ply black-wall tires.
Competition to this Cadillac in 1969 included Lincolns Continental Limousines, Chryslers Imperial Limousines and Rolls-Royces Phantom VI Limousines.
