Cool 1980 Cadillac Fleetwood limousine

Here is the newest addition to both my Cadillac and Professional Car collection. It is a 1980 Cadillac Fleetwood eight passenger limousine. It is a non-divider car. It has 36,049 original miles and has always been privately owned. It runs and drives as smooth as a brand new 1980 Cadillac. It has the factory original belts and hoses. The black velour interior is in near mint condition. The first previous owner had it parked outside for 8 months. The paint needs help in a few areas. I have not had the chance to clean it yet. This will be a good family car for going to shows and events.



Thank you to Andrew Zajkowski for letting me know about this car. Thank you to Brad Ross for all of your help with checking out the car, purchase details, and smooth removal from Lincoln Park, MI.

Handsome car, Kevin! I'd love to see some more photos of the exterior and interior. Quite similar to my '83 Fleetwood limousine.

Darn Kevin, bought it out from under me. Just kidding, Andrew told me about it and I was considering it but you jumped right on it. Sounded like a nice car. Glad you got it.

Great car Kevin. I love the 1980-1984 limos, they are the last of the REAL Fleetwood 75s.

Great addition to your fleet! I had two 1980's, a Sedan deVille and a Superior Regal Coach, both were excellent vehicles which we ran for a long time. Good engines and transmissions in these cars. Best of Luck!

Kevin, congratulations on that fine car. It is exactly like my mom(deceased) & dad's car. They bought it new in 1980, Black on Black on Black. It currently has 109,000 miles on it and it still runs like a top. I am not sure you could get a divider window in that car. It seemed my parents wanted one, but was not available that way. I COULD BE TOTALLY WRONG ABOUT THAT! I always have liked that car.

Way to go!!!

Kevin, Apparently there's a time limit for editing. I didn't realize how large my photo would be and felt like I was "hijacking" your thread, sorry about that! Was going to remove my limo's photo but I can't seem to now.
