“She puts the class into the word classic,” says the private seller of the Pick of the Day, a white 1993 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham.  According to the Encyclopedia of American Cars, just 31,773 Fleetwoods rolled off the assembly line for the 1993 model year, but how many of them are left? 

More specifically, how many of them are left that have fewer than 20,000 original miles on their odometers?

This Caddy is a creampuff, which the Austin, Texas, seller advertising the sedan on ClassicCars.com says has been owned by just two elderly ladies during its lifetime.  It has only 19,515 miles on the odometer, and according to the seller, it has been meticulously maintained and continuously garaged over its 27 years. 

But perhaps one of the most compelling aspects of this Cadillac is that it comes with a matching zippered, double-handled, dark-blue Cadillac-branded handbag.  Among other niceties included with the sale are the original window sticker, two sets of gold keys and the original owner’s manual.

The Cadillac is powered by a 260-horsepower, 350 cid 5.7-liter V8 that was derived from the Chevy Corvette.  It’s probably a good thing there’s so much power under the hood, since it weighs nearly 4,500 pounds and at 225 inches in length, the Fleetwood was the longest production car made in the United States during its model year run from 1993 through 1996.

“Driving her is like driving on a cloud, with seats that are more comfortable than your recliner,” the seller says.  Surprisingly, the seller also reports that this large sedan is capable of 25-28 mpg.

Among some needed items are repairs to the fuel gauge, a fix for the left-rear window-track mechanism, and a retrofit/recharge for the air-conditioning system.  At $18,500, this Cadillac Fleetwood looks ready to comfortably transport its passengers to a Palm Springs resort for a weekend getaway.

  1. PERCHE NON CI SONO ALTRE FOTO ANCHE DEGLI INTERNI OLTRE CHE ESTERNI CON PARTICOLARI?? (Translation: WHY THERE ARE NO OTHER PHOTOS EVEN OF THE INTERIOR OTHER THAN EXTERIORS WITH DETAILS ??)

  2. When Cadillac still had the design/heritage of the Cadillac Crest ! Beautiful full sized vehicle. This design would do well to have it brought back to todays standard of safety & technology. CT6 is a gorgeous current model, but this Fleetwood denotes Cadillac history. Slainte’ ! Cheers !

  3. My aunt and uncle had this exact model and this exact color. It was a large, smooth riding land yacht. I hated when they got rid of it! It handled even better than it looked.

  4. Stepdad had one of these new, in a pewter/silver/light grey metallic (not sure what GM called the colour) with a grey interior.
    Mom loved to ride in it, as it was very much a “mature person’s” automobile, and almost always the largest vehicle in any lot where docked.
    Engine tuned for smooth torque; by no means a race car, it would still accelerate with alacrity and handled Interstates with gracious aplomb. Mom approved silence, smooth land yacht sailing, and country club presence- a nice piece of work. Certainly not a BMW or Benz, but I don’t imagine there was much cross shopping for this particular auto.
    Sad that the great luxury sedan has been replaced- inadequately- by pimped up trucks. At one time, I owned a hideous metallic green ’72 Lincoln Continental; about the size of a small aircraft carrier with a 460 and able to comfortably sleep two couples, it sucked on ice in town- but on the highway it gobbled miles like it gobbled premium gasoline. Effortless, unaffected by crosswinds/semi bow waves and pavement imperfections, could be driven with one finger, at 90mph on cruise. ‘Til that next gas stop, anyway.

  5. it a decent car but not worth 18k you can find a Buick roadmaster that is just a comfortable as the caddy for less than 5k. truth be told if I was going to spend 18k I would get a 1996 impala SS or just spend 30k on a 2015 chevy SS both cars in my view are much better and will hold resale value better.
