Light Sandstone Metallic
1986 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham History: Originally used for a single horse drawn enclosed carriage for 2-4 people, the Brougham owes its name to British statesman, Henry Brougham. Cadillac first used the name in 1916 to designate an enclosed 5-7 passenger sedan body style. The Fleetwood body design was named for the chassis factory which was located in beautiful downtown Fleetwood, Pennsylvania. For consignment, a 2 owner car in the form of a 1987 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham. Bathed in Light Sandstone Metallic and chrome, looking good in its square and rectangle sharp edged design. A clean brown vinyl top, and finely preserved interior, and with a 5.0 L V8, and you should go grab Jeeves and we will go for a spin through town. Exterior Bathed in a respray of the factory Light Sandstone Metallic with a few chips and inclusions, sporting long and straight rust-free steel, well minded gaps and a padded brown vinyl top we could just say flossy flossy. From the crested hood and chrome grille below, and the dual square headlights, and shiny bumper below we are rolling in first class. Nice window trimmings, and a stainless rocker covering and straight as arrows side trimmings and wheel surrounds that frame chromed spoke wire wheel covers, we see as my mother would say, The rich get richer, and this car is exemplary of this quote. On the back cathedral style vertical taillights are framed in large shiny bezels and mate with a lower bumper which is also pristine. A 4 door saloon I now have car envy! Interior A swing of any of the massive padded sandstone velour broadcloth and wood paneled veneer doors, and the conveniences just on the door will take a rocket scientist a few days to learn. Within the wood and vinyl armrest are controls for the windows, mirrors, seats and side view mirrors. All is clean and well, sandstone with these panels, pulls, and actuators. Inside have a sit on any one of the tufted overstuffed sandstone velour encased couches. These are wonderfully preserved, and any signs of aging shows a graceful process. These seats float in a sea of sandstone gray carpeting which is fairly clean. Above in front is a forest of veneer for the dash front, with more controls, knobs and buttons. In their center are digital readout AM/FM/cassette radio and push button digital readout climate controls. For the passenger more deep wood for the glove box door and surrounds. Nice padded sandstone crack free vinyl is on top of the dash and a band of warning lights stretches across the top directly against the windscreen. The headliner is looking gray and like new in fuzzy broadcloth above all this rich interior...breathe it in! Drivetrain Under the hood not unlike the rest of the car is a well preserved very clean and lightly patinaed engine in 5.0 liter V8 configuration. A single 4-barrel feeds it, and on the back a 200R4 4-speed automatic transmission whisks you down the highway. A 10-bolt 2.73 get axle provides fuel economy, as if you care. Undercarriage Ahhhhh yup! as expected slight road dirt and surface rust on the usual suspects and we note a newer muffler installed. Everywhere else including the independent coil springs and 4 link with coil springs on back suspension is beautifully preserved and working like a charm. Power disc brakes are in front, and power drums for the rear. You can now oooooh and ahhhhh at the underside structure. Drive-Ability Slipping inside I began to wonder what the less fortunate folks were doing, but then turned my attention to the key which fired up the engine, which took me to the test track which put a smile on my pampered tush. All worked fabulously save for the passenger\'s power rear window only working from its respective door and the radio not belting out any Sinatra. Otherwise, nary even a peep from the suspension or engine during my enjoyable high end ride. We have a winner! A very original car 2 owner car which has led a pampered life
