I see lots and lots of Caprices, a few Roadmasters, and the occasional SS in my area, but I've only ever seen one Fleetwood. Are they really that rare? Just how many were made?

Yep, they made less than any of the other B bodies, with less produced each year.

That rarity makes finding & buying one hard for a lot of people, but it also creates a cool factor on the road second to none--since you never see yourself, and people are almost always admiring you (only cars I actually get comments and questions on in parking lots, gas stations, etc.).

Thanks for the posting! I had the 95/6 numbers but not the 93/4 counts.

Now I just need Roadmaster sedan numbers.....

Actually, now that I recall, those production numbers are NOT correct, at least according to our Factory information source--Sandy--on the other Cadillac board.

He lists the specs as:

There was no seperation breakout in 1995 between the Base Fleetwood and the Fleetwood Brougham, as in 1995 the "Brougham" was listed by Cadillac as an OPTION, rather than a seperate model. The Brougham Option was viewed no differently than any other normally released optional accessory.

There were no cars prepaired BY Cadillac and shipped BY Cadillac to aftermarket convertors. However a couple hundred of the above were purchased from dealers, and then in private hands were turned over to aftermarket convertors to be made into 6-door sedans, limousines, hearses and flower cars. When Cadillac saw the demand, they jumped into the market beginning with the 1994s. As you can see, Black Sapphire & Platinum were standard colors for 1993, but were discontinued after that. They were popular with the aftermarket, thusly the Special Order colors that followed in 1994, 1995 and 1996, using them, plus the Academy Gray that was popular with aftermarket convertors in 1992.

When I was looking into these stats prior to making my purchase, I also found Brackets numbers of 12,596 for the 1996 model year. When checking further, I then found DBeaSSt's numbers of 15,105. Either way, its still small production numbers which does make these cars rare.

I know! It would be cool to track one of those down, but as is the corporate policy, whatever few were made each year are likely still out there, but repainted white.

The representatives can buy them at the end of the term, I believe, and keep them as is, but if they get turned in as usual, they don't want their trademark color just out there floating around for anyone to have, so they always get resprayed and sent to auction.

Still have never even seen pics of one...

Wow, that's some detailed info, thanks!

Question though. Looking at the 95 listing (since that's what I have) I don't see Medium Marblehead Metallic listed. Now I'm assuming Slate Green is DGGM so I'm assuming Fawn Grey Metallic is the color?
