“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.
