The latest addition, 1994 Fleetwood

This is Fleetwood number 6 for me. I have owned Dark Cherry Metallic, Black, Dark Adriatic Blue, White, Light Driftwood Metallic.

I have always wanted one in this color: Medium Garnet Red Metallic.

This was a 1 owner vehicle with only 83k miles. It is a base Fleetwood (I did not want a vinyl top this time). It has leather, keyless entry, auto day/night mirror, full size spare, and the chrome wheels.

For being 20 years old, it is mint! I spent the last month bringing it up to speed on maintenance because it had been sitting in a garage for the last year since the owner passed away.


This one is going to stay bone stock on the exterior. It is too clean to tinker with. I have updated the suspension, intake, and put new tires/brakes. I may put a mild tune.


Here she is:






It's good to be back!

Take care,
Elias

Well, quite the [garnet red] plum you picked there! Congrats! I'll give way now to all the other certain well-wishing [i.e envious, pissed, demoralized] FW owners out here.

Oh yah. And be sure to snap a bunch of the interior and undercarriage to antagonize us even further. lol

Thanks!

I will get interior and other shots sometime this week. I forgot how long it takes to fully detail the exterior of these cars... ran out of time for the interior.

Thanks! I am going to keep this one mainly stock... going to keep the mods for the other cars . The chrome OEM wheels really work well on this color!


As promised, here are interior pics:

What a beautiful car. It's identical to my Fleetwood. Same color scheme, and no vinyl top!
