Exclamation This is a real car: '94 FWB, 29K miles

I talked to the seller since the car showed up on my routine Florida Craigslist time wasting. He had nice photos and no price. No price because he has it on eBay also. His story seems to line up.

I have the exact same car in Dark Adriatic Blue rather than Medium Adriatic Blue. Same blue interior. Only a bit over 100K miles. He is stuck on the $12,500 and it may well be worth it. Look at the trunk and look at the interior. All trunk pieces in place, clean and neat. The carpet mats are immaculate, snapped in place, clean and no wear on the carpet edge. Story is the rear seat has never been sat upon. Surprising there are no engine compartment photos or undercarriage photos.

I'd love to buy this car but...need another car like, well pick something...money in the bank?

Car is in Sanford, FL.

It looks ok, but I have the same interior and way tired of it. The seller likely figures the car ain't hurting nothing where it's sitting so try high, and wait a few months and sell for $9-10k. What do you think it's worth?

\'96FWB BUW-Butt Ugly White: PCMPerformance tune, HDFA w/ swissed filter, 1/2 SLP s.s. catback with H- and Flow Super 50s, oem opti rebuilt 3 times, SS Bars, METCO LCA, Airlift 1000, Monroe SS, PowerTrax No-Slip, CTS wheels with +1 rubber. Finally, yes again... LT-4 knock module!

What's it worth?

I like mine but it is not stock anymore, although equally as clean. Don't know about you but I see low mileage Fleetwood Broughams and Roadmaster wagons with what I consider stupid high asking prices. I paid a stupid high price for my '96 FWB. Wish I had not. While it was fun, there were so many little things to correct before it was up to my standards I'll take an unmolested car any day. Down here there seem to be hardtops and tow package Brougham cars appearing on Craigslist with some astonishing regularity. Just how much abuse one wants...

I would not even hazard a price on this one without aphysical inspection. Not sure it's worth $12.5 but $8 would proabaly be a steal. Actually, the correct price is whatever anyone will pay for it, as with all things.

Hi Richard

Twenty Nine K sure isn't many miles, but it is a PA car. Maybe that might have something to do with no pictures of the engine or undercarriage. I guess you'd have to take a look at the car. Like you, I have more than enough, two wagons and a Fleetwood. No one ever sat in my Fleetwood's back seat either. I bought it from a 92 year old doctor's family. It had 66K miles, 4 years later I'm up to 69K.

Can't help you out there Mike. They look the same, not sure if they are.

Mike is the cowl seal still holding up?

hahah good one. Name me one that is - at least after we get our hands on it anyway. lol

I'm caught in the terrible trauma of deciding whether to keep the FTSS ANOTHER 15 years and cram an ever-escalating amount of parts and pieces into it to counter all those years of my abuse, or give up and snag an STS-V, or, hunt just down a 'new' Fleetwood - you know for something completely different.

On my completely 1/2 assed research 5X,XXX milers appear to be getting offered for $10-25k, and selling for $10-12k. lol

One question I'd have to ask; if the car is so unmolested then why is the "Cadillac" and "Brougham" script on the filler panel below the trunk lid instead of where it belongs ON the trunk lid?

I know, maybe it just fell off...
