I think his 6 door is a 1982, not 1992.

I think his 6 door is a 1982, not 1992.

These have been listed for about 6 months now, as I was interested in both, I emailed them and mentioned the limo not being a 1992, and they assured me it was. I told them they needed to match the vin on the car with the title and let me know if it is the same because it is NOT a '92. I never heard back after that. I ran the VIN they have listed and it does come back as a 1992. Something seems a little fishy, so I did not persue these any further.
Also, the names on the doors are decals, and they said can be removed without problems.

Nothing fishy about it guys, they are both 1992 models. The hearse and limo both have the "euro" front ends, which are flush-mounted headlights (not seal beams) and only offered on 1990-1992 model Cadillacs.

Look closer, this is the limo we are discussing that is the same owner as the hearse.
Yes, the hearse is a 92, but the limo is not.

John is correct. This limousine is definitely not a '92.

Whoops... did as the hearse ad said and searched Omaha Craigslist for "limo" and saw this white 1992 six-door

Saw these ads several weeks ago and spoke to the funeral director immediately because I had a suspicion about the hearse, which turned out to be accurate:

The hearse was purchased new by Peterson-Stohlberg Funeral Chapels of Minneapolis, MN. To match their fleet color at the time, the car was ordered in light sapphire blue metallic and with an optional extend table featuring light oak formica. It was a gorgeous car, but I am partial to blue. I've attached a couple photos I took of this car ca. 1995.

It was traded in to Johnson-Williams Sales (Minneapolis) in 1998 on a new Miller-Meteor Cadillac (also a beautiful car in champagne metallic with burgundy interior.) The '92 was painted black and sold - along with a matching 1992 Cadillac limousine - to the funeral home in Atlantic, Iowa.

As for the "other" limo, it appears to be an '82 or '83 with '84-'85 parking lamp lenses.

As stated earlier, yes the hearse is a 92, but the RWD limo is NOT.

The limo is definetly not a 92. The front end is garunteed an 80's front end . Also look at the back windshield... The glass goes all the way across to the posts.. That is definetly early 80's After 83 or 84 the rear windshield shrunk.. It ends up looking like glass in a picture frame.

the vin for it listed comes up as a invalided number on the site I checked

I ran it through the Hagerty one someone posted in another thread. It came up as a 92, thats why I wanted them to match the title number with the Vin, either they have the wrong title or worse.
