Just having another back surgery Friday, Leaving the hospital and after 4 days laying in bed, while riding in passenger seat I spotted in a back of a old car lot a 95 dark green fleetwood, My wife pulled in and the old guy and I had a nice conversation about the car. It has been sitting for 6 years with a bad fuel pump, but only has 104k. He bought it new in 95 from a dealership in South County, needs a new vinyl top and looks very nice just very dirty. I bought it for nearly nothing
My old man picked up today with my car trailer and put in the shop. This thing is super clean.

Its a 95 DGGM Base Fleetwood with beautiful light tan interior, interior is perfect expect for the cracked dash. I have never seen a Fleetwood Base with a add rag top for an aftermarket company. The top is all tore up, but my dad sprayed some starter fluid in and she started right up. Not rust at all and very few dents. No missing parts

Trying to decide to remove the top completely or fix it. The top even has it onto all four doors. I wonder since it looks like the top was a add on option not the GM version, which back window is in it?

Ill get some pic and post tomorrow. I cannot drive for two weeks and not lift anything over 10 pounds for 30 days because of my new back.

So I have a near perfect white 94 Slick top, a 95 Slick top Marble head grey one Im building into a nice sleeper car , and a 94 tan slick top I parted out, and now this one. All for under $1000 total
I still have lots of Fleetwood parts, Anyone need anything body sheet metal please let me know. I will sell things cheap.

You ALMOST have more Cadys than you know what to do with. Sorry to hear you're sorta laid up though.

You may have lucked with that aftermarket roof, and the back glass is likely the base style. I don't need anything at present, but good to know a source for stuff. Wait a minute - I just said something so I'll probably get attacked by a swarm of texting Priuses today. ;)

1. Do you have a '96 radio with CD? I can even throw in mine with cassette as a core return.

Some pics

Three of the four, The 94 Tan one was parted out.
Bob was correct, some aftermarket company just added the roof, but let all the original back window installed. I removed the top today, has only a few holes to fill and the black glue to remove.

The 95 DGGM got a new fuel pump today and ran and drove perfect, only has 104k miles
Bob all these have non cd radios, but Im removing one of them for new pioneer blue tooth ones.

Im sure I have the trim you need. I also still have the base back glass and small trim parts if you ever want to remove your top.
Im going to put lots of these parts up on ebay next month, just to clear some stuff out.
Anyone that needs anything just text me 314-681-6918 I have hoods, fenders, trunks doors. wheels, a nice fleetwood rear end, tan interior, ect
The more you buy the cheaper it will get.

All these are has no rust at all, even in the common areas, and very little damage. Super nice rides. The 95 DGGM is nearly perfect on the inside. The white 94 looks great and I like rhe color combo, the 94 Marblehead grey one, with the 95 doors will be the HP sleeper car, with nothing Caddy like!!

Top removed

Some pics with aftermarket top removed.
Bob, if you want this top for your fleetwood to remove your Sunroof, you can have it but it was aftermarket installed. Its going in the trash next week.

I only had to fill a few screw holes today. Im going to paint the whole car or have someone do it for me since my back is still real sore.

Thanks for thinking of me Kent - but pass. That top is a fright. Hard to believe something even uglier than the combination of a vinyl cover plus a moonroof added ! haha I'll likely end up stuffing some rock wool between the glass and lid for sound deadening and pulling the fuse. Looking forward to your sleeper build.

No problem, it went into the trash truck yesterday.
I got all the screw holes filled and sanded yesterday, Primer and paint next week.
I think i will re paint the whole car to get it all to match correctly. These cars look simple to paint with the bottom trim removed and i will remove the door handles and key locks since the window rollers all need replaced anyway.

My 94 is a base and has an aftermarket E&G Classics top. Also covers the tops of all four doors. All the paperwork/owners info was still in the car when I bought it. From the filled out but unsent warranty card it looks like the original owner had it installed the first year of ownership but not at the dealer. The listed installer is a Automotive Expressions which most likely is in Arizona and still in business installing tops and other exterior bits for Cadillacs and others.

Pictures of the owner card bits: Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet

Since you mentioned having parts any chance you have the drivers side under bumper air dam that's attached with a spring? Also need the the front wheel arch liner that the air dam assembly attaches too. Caught a driveway curb two weeks ago and busted mine up.

Ready for primer and paint

All the inner fender parts are broke on every Fleetwood I have ever seen at my house or at the yards. I found one a few months ago at the JK, I toughed it and it broke apart. LOL

Going to paint the entire car, I removed everything and going to paint this week.

Nice, in a sorta reminds me of something kinda way ;) And you're losing all the gouache chrome I take it eh.

I woulda' thought you'd flush the trunk key and hood sight - since you already had the bondo out and all....

Seriously, shaping up nice.

Thanks Bob, I took everything off just to paint it and I had to fix the front windows anyway.

It is DGGM but that pic it looks dark greyish, my phone is so old and cheap.

Everything going back on as stock, the tan interior of this car is in near perfect and it runs and drives so nice, tires are dryrotted, so I may buy four new tires for it. Then throwing it on cList very cheap. I have way to many Fleetwoods right now and too many cars and SUVs in general. 12 vehicles is more than enough for one guy.

The white 94 Fleetwood is a blast to drive around town as a daily driver car, just with the SS wheels, 1.6 full roller rockers, and 2400 B&M stall, and rear end rake. Lots of looks.

I have some SLP headers, pypes x pipe, Dynomax mufflers, 342 gears and Eaton posi for it to install soon.
Im going to move the mirrors up to the 95 location if I dont sell it after all the mods are installed.

Lower trim panels

I spent the last couple days putting this car back together, who ever engineered those lower trim panels needs shot with a "Taser". What a pain in the ass. On my personal 94 Fleetwood build, Im going to figure out a way to put these on with out the darn clips.
Also replaced the window rollers, rewired and fixed the Auto leveling control System, charged the AC system, changed all the fluids, and installed new ACdelco front shocks on it, and four brand new 235/75/15 tires.
This car look like new on the underside with only 104k original miles and near perfect tan interior, should make someone a nice car for a very cheap price.
