Default 1976 Cadillac Fleetwood Seventy-Five Limousine... Photos

As promised in the intro thread, here are some photos of my 1976 Cadillac Fleetwood Seventy-Five Limousine. I have owned this car, bought locally, since July 9, 1999. Had 59,474 miles on it and it now has about 98,000. I did have it weighed... 6,040 lbs with a floor jack and bicycle in the trunk, so figure maybe 5,970 without those two items.

As can be seen, car is triple black. It has the leather front seat and crushed velour rear seat. It does have some options such as Twilight Sentinel, remote trunk release, outside thermometer and rear radio controls.

About a year ago, I added some gold trim and emblems in the rear compartment which can be seen in the second photo. I will post more photos of the elegant and spacious rear compartment soon.

Glad you like it, Bill. What year(s) have you owned?

Very nice! Looks to be a terrific car, Anthony. I personally have a problem with limos with dividers.... can't move the seat far enough back for me, and my leg cramps after a few miles. Your car reminds me of another one I saw a few years back in downtown San Francisco. I have pics of it somewhere, and it was for sale. I think I even took a picture of the sale poster, with the phone number, if anyone is interested. It's a '76 also, and I remember it being pretty nice.

An early '50's limo would be about the only car I can envision still opening my wallet for. It was a very expensive summer for me, so it's foolish to even say that, but I did anyway, in case anyone knows of one for sale. Thanks for posting! Tom

I love them, too. Especially the pre-'77s (pre-downsized).
