1985 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham d’Elegance with 13k miles

 

This 1985 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham d’Elegance has 13,000 original miles. Original paint on all body panels. No accidents and no rust. Original three quarters inch white walls. The owner of a Dodge, Chrysler, and Jeep dealer bought it new and kept it until his death. Genuinely loaded with memory seats, security system, and extremely rare color matched d’Elegance hubcaps. If you bought the d’Elegance package you got these color to body matched hubcaps standard from 1980 to 1985. Everyone chose instead to have the fake wire hubcaps as that was the trendy thing then. I remember the cars new and could see how the original owner’s then reveled in never washing the wire hubcaps or the white walls for that matter.  The standard white wall on the big body Cadillacs in 1985 was the small one you see in these pictures.  It was the first year for the downsized white wall.  The larger white wall was still available but I never saw one ordered that way, and I worked at a Cadillac dealer in Dallas at the time.  I saw probably around a thousand I guess.  Yes these Cadillacs look better with the inch and a quarter white wall but it is incorrect on this Cadillac.  

In my opinion the interior is simply to die for. It elicits oohs and aahs from everyone, even those late model dead heads who can’t imagine anything beyond a brain matter gray or small intestine beige interior made of cheap grade leather. Everything works. Yes that means from the power antenna to the level ride to the ac and heat. You could drive this car a long distance if you don’t care about things other than yourself. This car deserves to be in a museum, not driven in disposable appliance traffic.  

The color is maple red firemist with matching top and dark claret velour interior. A factory red painted pinstripe sets off the color nicely.  

Price is $9,000 firm
