1994 FWB $6950 low miles, rust free.





First year for the Fleetwood Brougham with the LT-1 Corvette 5.7 engine, collectable! Beautiful, well maintained low mileage creampuff. Fully optioned, loaded. This time capsule has been in the rust free environment of the desert southwest since new. Truly a garage kept beauty that is the last of the true "old school" GM Luxury cars. Driven less than 4000 miles a year, this Caddy is barely broken in. If you are familiar with these models, they are known to typically give good service upwards of a quarter million miles. Note: Being sold with the original wheels ONLY. (See first two pictures)

Being a Brougham, I cannot think of any option it does not have, other than towing package and sunroof. But it does have heavy duty oil cooler. The 100% original paint still has the shiny mirror gloss.

What a pleasure to drive! Easily gets 23-26 mpg effortlessly cruising at 70 mph. A very solid and stable feeling ride that is surprisingly nimble through mountainous terrain. All trim, weather stripping and other plastic or rubber parts are in great condition. No nusance items noted or experienced to take away from your envelope of luxury. Very clean undercarriage and engine compartment. Air Conditioner blows cold, heater is toasty and ride is quiet and smooth.

Passed emissions with the greatest of ease.

This car has been well loved and respected by all 3 owners. Oh and it is quite powerful. It eats up the freeway.

EVERYTHING is currently in working order. Some of the modifications I have done: Wheels (obviously). 2.5" to 2.25" exhaust with turbo mufflers and X pipe. This gives it a rich mellow V8 exhaust tone. And it has a 160 thermostat.

I also have installed new brakes front and rear. Did a complete grease job, all front end zerks, differential grease, and wheel bearings. The cooling system was completely flushed, but upon doing it I saw all fluid was already pristine. I refilled with Prestone extended life coolant. There are no fluid leaks.

The original owner was a GM executive and special ordered this to his tastes. Included is every single detail of service records while in he had it. He maintained this baby to the nth degree.

The second owner acquired this Fleetwood shortly after the original owner died and used it extensively for long road trips, touring the USA. He probably put 30,000 interstate miles on it himself, as it has just over 40,000 when he bought it a few years ago. Just before I bought it the entire A/C system was rebuilt, including a new Delco compressor (new, not rebuilt).

I installed a period correct Delco dealer option 10 CD changer in the trunk.

This Caddy is truly rust-free. No not Chicago or New York "rust-free" not Florida "rust-free" but Arizona rust free!!

This is the BEST car I have ever owned. But I cannot fully shut my garage door because the Caddy is about 5 inches too long. So, I have to settle for my second best car I have ever owned, a Buick Roadmaster. I do not have the stock aluminum wheels.

Yes, it is in Arizona. It is unfortunate that most of the market for these cars live in Chicago, New York, Boston etc, but the rust free examples are in the desert southwest. If a dealer in Chicago bought this car, he would flip it for $10-$13K, and people would pay the dealer just to not have to deal with the shipping. I am aware of that.
