Of the "weird" ones I've seen, they always seem to be '94s.

Case in point, this low mileage '94 Brougham. Everything seems typical, just your average Brougham--albeit with the vinyl delete (no CB5 code)--at first. Then I saw the spare tire (not really an indicator, but still I noticed it) was a GY Eagle GA, the tires they used OEM on V4P Tow Pack cars. But, keep scrolling down, and there's no manual fan and no mention of either V92 (I've seen a handful of those oddballs) or V4P...BUT, it lists the FE2 suspension.

So, any theories? It essentially just looks like your average Brougham optioned Fleetwood, but with the FE2 suspension randomly thrown in without any other usual equipment combined. Not that it's a bad combo--I'd love if mine was like this--but it's not a Tow Pack car and it's not a livery R1P car, so the FE2 suspension is just odd...

She sure is pretty and with low miles. But it sure does have a wierd colour combo. Red cars usually came with the tan interior did they not?

Everyone has a reason to buy the model they like; roof delete, certain factory mods etc. The one option that I had to have was the moonroof. I did find several that I liked with lower miles but no moon roof. First thing I went to check on this one was if it had the moonroof. None.

No, not buying a third.

Maybe you missed my point, but it's not that the colors or even the vinyl delete are that rare, it's just VERY odd that it has the FE2 suspension as a standalone option. That was never a choice, meaning this car falls into the handful of odd FW's built differently than factory options allowed.

Sort of like the V92 (i.e. just like Caprice and Roadmaster tow cars) '94 FWB on Ebay about a year ago--another option package combo that was never a Fleetwood feature.

Few of these cars had moonroofs, or at least most of the ones that do (I'd say 60-70%) were all aftermarket power sliders subcontracted out by dealers when the cars were new. Trust me, I want one too But, just like when new, it's not that hard to get the same kind of aftermarket power slider installed that looks OEM.

My sister bought her old CL500 from that guy and I bought a '98 Deville Concours from him. Overall a really good guy to deal with.

He has a heavily modified Z28 LT1 as his fun car.

How do you know if it is an aftermarket slider or a factory installed one?

I have seen cars that do have the sliders along with the rear passenger vanity mirrors. Mine does not have them. Would this be a sign that I have a factory installed roof? Or would it be the other way around? Or were the vanity mirrors an option?

Yours is factory. My aftermarket moonroof has the vanity mirrors behind it.

Like these OEM's:




And some typical aftermarkets:




ALSO, I have seen some aftermarket installs where they got rid of the rear mirrors (and, for whatever reason, the overhead console):
