This 1985 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham d'Elegance is a classic that is becoming cooler by the day - especially because this one is preserved, loaded, and has a story to tell. So the affordable price really makes this V8 cruiser irresistible.
This was the final year for the DeVille and Fleetwood full-size rear-wheel drive coupes, which now are just loved for being some of the best large and luxurious personal cruisers around. The story we're told is this is a two-owner car - father and son. So now is your chance to be the first owner outside of the family. And since this coupe has so much history, it chooses to wear it on full display. The Dark Sandstone Metallic shows all the right signs of being the original application, and it's complete but certainly shows its age. The full story and the real care is seen in the straightness of the sheet metal and the clean look of the Brougham's hallmark landau vinyl roof. And there are also terrific details with the clean grille, complete bagging (including the original deal ear tag,) full-length trim, and the Cadillac wire wheels. In total, it makes for the premium and well-creased style you want in a DeVille.
The Medium Beige leather interior looks coordinated against the earthy brown exterior. While it's unknown if the odometer reflects the full actual mileage, the full feeling inside is like a well-preserved time capsule. That means it's opulent and loaded with power front seats, power windows, power locks, cruise control, a tilt steering column, and the factory AM/FM/cassette stereo. This is really impressive on everything you see from the full courtesy light package to the rare sunroof. In fact, the only update you're likely to recognize is not one you'll see, but you certainly can feel it. The air conditioning system is a newer piece running modern R134a refrigerant to keep you cool for the long haul. Just like any good Cadillac, it has space for six people, but the fold-down armrests provide individual comfort. And the trunk is large enough to carry the whole foursome's golf clubs.
This final year for the generation also meant some distinction under the hood. It had one of the most advanced powerplants of the era with Cadillac's 4.1-liter V8. It utilized lightweight aluminum construction and fuel injection to give this coupe a level of technology not seen in many earlier years. This example looks particularly clean with the right investments to remain both stock and stout. Another feature only available to these later ones was the four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. A smooth ride, power steering, and power brakes with front discs make a great total package.
The sale comes complete with the original owner's manual and warranty packet. We love this for the survivor that it is. And if you want a near-perfect Caddy, the value price leaves room in your budget for details like new paint, tires, headliner, or other updates/upgrades for your personal tastes. And no matter what first attracted you to this coupe, it's the overall history, features, and style that makes this final Fleetwood Brougham coupe irresistible. Call today!!!
