Never This Nice – 1986 Cadillac Fleetwood 75 Limousine

June 11, 2016

In the context of the entirety of Cadillac’s 114-year history, Cadillac’s compact, front-wheel-drive C-body cars will likely not get much respect among car enthusiasts. Riding on a front-wheel-drive platform, this “Cadillac of the future”, as it was described in period advertising, must have only been for the short-term future, because Cadillac reverted to rear-wheel-drive after the demise of the Seville. Among many of the right-sized American cars of the 1980s, only a few were honored by factory limousine conversions – Cadillac’s Fleetwood and Chrysler’s LeBaron being the most prominent (and perhaps only) ones. Check out this 1986 Cadillac Fleetwood 75 Limousine for sale for $3995 in Monterey Park, CA.

As the US and Canada moved deeper into the late 1970s, where emissions and safety needs superseded the need for custom bodywork, some coachbuilders still were able to make custom bodies. Since a full custom body was largely off the agenda by this point, buyers with custom dreams were limited to sticker-and-wheel packages, lopping off the roof, or transforming coupes into pickups or shooting brakes. Wait, what was that last one? Check out this 1976 Cadillac Eldorado Comstock Wagon for sale for $2200 in Lynnwood, WA.

There’s nothing to say “America… F$%# yeah!” like a Cadillac with long horns on the hood. Nudie Cohn, the rodeo tailor, had several “horny cars” throughout the years, Tex from Cars was a Cadillac with a set of horns, and Boss Hog from Dukes of Hazzard had a set of horns on his white convertible Cadillac. So if you want to say “America… F$#@ yeah!”, but don’t have a lot of greenbacks, check out this 1969 Cadillac de Ville Convertible for sale for $1950 in Grants Pass, OR.
