Total project car, but seemingly all there. Dig the way out tailights. And close to lots of our members in Allentown PA.

so it popes up again you would think they could at least go out and get some new pictures.

At least the price is coming down. Its about 15 miles from me if anyone needs an in person look. Again its one that you ain't gonna see another next to you at a meet. But light at the end of the tunnel is far away WHAT a project!!!

Had it been a LWB Premier, it would have sold by now. There just isn't the interest in the Flxettes, Sevilles, and Consorts that there is in the LWB coaches. Seems like a lot more of the SWB coaches survived as well.

I think its more like way more short WBs were built thus more survivors. For the bucks the LWBs cost you drop a few more bucks in and get a Cadillac sort of a no brainer.

For me, I really like the shorties! They fit in a regular garage and I think they are really cool. This poor old Buick has been for sale in one place, or another for almost twenty years. It needs to be saved and restored, then it would be a beauty.

These are new pictures. They're ONLY 4 or 5 years old. The old pictures were old 15 years ago. It's all relative.

I guess it boils down to what you want. A Caddy hearse or ambulance is almost a cliche. The 63 Flextte I had and the 65 C/B I still have are both nice alternatives as are some of the other makes. In some respects they are better vehicles:my2cents:

Yes but remember in their day the prime mover was they were CHEAPER. Many FDs were not prone to a used Cadillac (buying someone other FDs troubles). The non Cadillac market was price driven and coach builders did their best to give the most bang for the buck. Some succeeded admirably others turned out offerings that looked just that, CHEAP. Fixible and CB did some of the best in my view.
