For Sale: 1985 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham in Joliet, Illinois

$22,500 (OBO)

Vehicle Description

Cadillac produced a Fleetwood Brougham coupe from 1980 to 1985. Many consider it to be one of the most beautiful designs of the '80's. These cars feature a very unique and elegant looking quarter window giving the rear seat passengers a very private surrounding. Production stopped in mid 1985 with just 8,500 cars built that year. This car was produced in May of 1985, making it one of the last ones produced and therefore, one of the last full size Cadillac coupes ever produced.

This car was ordered in the beautiful, but rare color of Aspen Green. The white top stands out nicely while the sage green velour interior adds to the elegance of the vehicle. The pin stripe is two-tone dark green and white. By 1985, the 4100 engine was in its fourth year, and the issues that had plagued it during its introduction were resolved. As a Cadillac, it features all the typical luxury items such as power locks, power seats, power windows, power steering, power brakes, cruise control, automatic headlights, power trunk pull down, etc,

What makes this particular car even more special is the fact that it has a mere 6,047 miles on it. It is all original except for the fluids, fuel pump, fuel filter, and battery. The spark plugs, wires, belts, hoses, brakes, etc, are all original and in good condition. It even sits on its original tires. The car runs flawlessly. The interior is so immaculate it even smells new inside. The vinyl top is bleach white. The chrome shines like new. The engine compartment has been fully detailed. This car was purchased new by an elderly couple from Shirey Cadillac in Oak Lawn, IL. After the husband passed away four years later, the car remained parked in the garage covered with a sheet until the wife passed away a few years ago. I am the second owner of this rare car. It includes all the original documentation including the bill of sale and title. When I found this car, the original “Sold” tag that the dealership would hang from the rear view mirror was still in the glove box. The keychain is the original Shirey Cadillac keychain. It is as close to buying a new car 30 years later as you can get.

This car was a senior award winner at last year's Cadillac & LaSalle Club's Grand National meet. It also won a club Preservation Award. This is a rare opportunity to own an all original car that happens to be the last of the full size Cadillac coupes. You'll be very hard pressed to find a nicer one.

This car is a true time capsule and a piece of Cadillac history being the last full size coupe for which Cadillac was famous for. It is the last of the full size, body on frame Cadillac coupes. This is a museum quality car and historic piece, not a driver.
