For Sale: 1965 Cadillac Fleetwood in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

Classic luxury fans know to pay attention when a car like this 1965 Cadillac Fleetwood 75 sedan becomes available. Reserved only for the top elite, these always command respect. So to find one that is neatly preserved and even maintained in the right places (like the rebuilt V8 and cold-blowing A/C) makes this a true upper-echelon stunner. In fact, this one has likely been involved with some of the most elite out there.

You instantly knew someone special was arriving when you saw one of these long-wheelbase Caddys pulling up. These Series 75 sedans had a distinct look and tall roof line that instantly conveyed opulence. In fact, these Fleetwoods were sold as limousines. They were priced like a Rolls-Royce is today and made them the rarest Caddys around. So just imagine how many have survived to be this complete over a half century later! The wide grille, form-fitting bumpers, rear fender skirts, and iconic tailfins - it all shows you this example has been treated with care. The original Cardiff Gray Metallic has been resprayed later in life to retain a vibrant look. And details like the full vinyl roof and whitewalls are pure 1950s opulence. We have paperwork documenting that this was originally a Harrah's Casino car in Reno. Bill Harrah was a celebrated car collector, so this was on-call for an enthusiast known for collecting some of the best cars in the world. Plus, this was a time when Elvis was featured at Harrah's. So it's a high probability that The King enjoyed a few rides in this one.

Since Elvis was likely in these seats, it's a true treat to have the all original interior. The front gets danford cloth with a custom embroidery pattern. There's a comfy fold-down armrest, and nothing really beats the view from Cadillac's classic skinny dual spoke steering wheel. It gives you a terrific view of everything from the ultra-wide speedometer, to the power window switches at the base of the wraparound windshield. But in a car like this, the rear even more important than the front. The seats are plush and get the same custom embroidery pattern. The legroom is so large that you have built-in footrests, plus, you might have noticed to jump seats that neatly fold into the divider. Because the back is where the VIPs sit, it has cool features, like controls for the AM radio and air conditioning.

Even with all these great features, there is one BIG reason you 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 a proper replacement motor professionally installed in 2000, and there's less than 10k miles on it since then. It also has been maintained correctly, including newer components like the radiator and master cylinder. This monster motor makes big power and big torque to move all this sheetmetal with ease, especially when paired with the three-speed automatic transmission. Plus, power steering, power brakes, and a supple coil spring ride keep this Caddy a feeling like a proper luxury machine on the road.

Complete with owner's manual, maintenance records, and other paperwork, this is an exceptionally rare classic with a story to tell. So if you love the best Caddys, don't miss this deal. Call today!!!
