Default 1996 Cadillac 9,000 Original Miles Limo 6 Door

1996 Cadillac 9,000 Original Miles Limo 6 Door High priced you are paying for the low miles. Not the most handsome in my view. http://www.ebay.com/itm/1996-Cadilla...m=182432906173

Paying mostly for that sites markup. But really it's still better to pay a little more for a sharp one thenf it is to bring a average on up to sharp.

It has always amazed me that there aren't more retirement/assisted living communities buying these old 6-doors! That's a lot of car for the money. It would make far more sense than chasing around town with an old airport shuttle bus with 5 people in it!

I was talking with a pro car distributor yesterday that had just sold a used 200? 6-door limo to a small town funeral home to be used as a lead car. I hadn't heard of that before, but it makes a lot of sense. The FD takes the preacher and the pallbearers with him in the 6-door.

I seriously doubt that you would find a nicer one or one with fewer miles............ if the color works for you!

Very true Peter. Miles added to price but color will deduct. Most people have a need for special color and it would usually be white or black. Never seen one this color. I like it but not for everyone. These cars don't bring near what they should anymore even though great cars and I love them. I can see car bringing asking price.

The only way it will is if someone just has to have that baby blue car.

Confirmed as former Ward FS, Gastonia car, out of business in 2016.
The first hearse I was privy to working with was a '71 Superior that came from Ward's. They had a '76 S & S Victoria, and '89 S & S fwd, and a '95 era Cadillac hearse... all same light blue color...

6-door limos this old rarely, if ever, go back into service with a funeral home anyway so color is not such a big factor.

It might be if I was getting it. Baby blue would be right up with white.
