Actually does not look to bad. If you do not buy the car there are other things to spend you money on.:D In Pahrump Nev. (https://lasvegas.craigslist.org/cto/d/1968-cadillac-fleetwood/6299746882.html) A blind quarter to boot.

This has to be a fairly rare bird with it being just a Series 75 Landau Sedan and not a formal limo. I would assume that 90% of the Landaus built on the Series 75 platform would have been formal limos. Also odd in that it has a leather front seat. Typically only the Series 75 Formal limousines had a leather front seat.

Seller says it is a formal with a glass divider, but I am not seeing it in his photos.

Might have to take a drive out and take a look.:)

Image number 9 in the Craigslist ad shows the back of the divider non divider cars just have the front seat no partican of any kind. Also leather front seat is a tip off as all divider cars had leather in front unless special delete order.

Now I see the right side "B" pillar track channel in that photo. The top of the partition just seemed odd.

The car and price look decent, the car loses something and I can't put my finger on it. Possibly the top looks ugly and the tape pin striping doesn't help it either, but this could all be taken care of. Really a 68 formal limo with blind quarter windows is right up my alley.

In photo #10, it has the appearance of there having been a fair amount of water having stood in the floor pan for some time(note the rust line going up on the hump). That might also explain why the lower part of the front seat bottom shrunk up like it did. Also, a little too much quarter panel rust to have been a desert car.

Look again you seeing the faded out shade on the windshield.the streak goes across the door. A lot of sun damage on this car
