Default WTB: 1977 to 1984 Cadillac Factory Fleetwood Limousine

After reading more about this series through resources I found on the forum, I learned much more about the 1977-79 models and have added them to my search. These models were 425 CI carbureted engines and pretty much bullet proof. Also understand that 1980's had 368 CI that was also carbureted.

Having improved my search range to 1977-1984, I stand a better chance of finding the right car. My preference is for dark blue with a blue vinyl top, but will consider all colors.

Should anyone see a car in this range, please be sure to contact me.

Thanks for your help.

Charles Bucky Barbour

Ebat and Craigslist is a pretty good source too. Sometimes I go through every Craigslist ad in the country (yeah it takes a while), typing in limo, limousine, (and hearse, ambulance etc), and have came across quite a few Cadillac series 75 sedans and limos.
Like I said it takes awhile, but worth a shot.

I've found a few but noting to my liking as yet. It will take some time but I'll be patient.

Thanks again.

Had an opportunity to schedule an appointment to look at a 77 Cadillac Fleetwood Factory Limousine for yesterday. I called to confirm before I left for the 1.5 hr drive and seller told that "guy from Texas bought car'. This was somewhat frustrating for me because I had tried several times to schedule a time to see the car and was always put off by the seller. Live and learn I guess. Something good will come along.

It was close to NJ border, just outside of Philadelphia in Bridgepot, PA. It was green with a black vinyl top.
