AutoHunter Spotlight: 1964 Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty Special

The Cadillac of Cadillac Sedans


Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is this 1964 Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty Special four-door hardtop sedan. It is powered by a 429cid V8 backed by a three-speed automatic transmission. Features include formal roofline, power front seat and locks, and air conditioning. Finished in Bahama Sand over a taupe vinyl and cloth interior, this 1964 Cadillac comes from the seller with a clear title.

Fleetwoods had distinctive rear trim different than lesser models.

The Fleetwood subseries included the Sixty Special, Eldorado, and two Series Seventy-Fives, one a nine-passenger sedan and the other a limousine. The Sixty Special differed from its lesser Series Sixty-Two and Sedan de Ville models by its roofline, exterior chrome detailing and extra-luxurious furnishings including a choice among two cloth patterns, wool broadcloth, and leather.

The factory-applied finish of Bahama Sand (code 44) is still present on the flanks of this 1964 Sixty Special. Features include driver-side mirror, special lower-body trim, and rear wheel skirts.

A set of 15-inch body-color steel wheels with wheelcovers is wrapped in whitewall radial tires, the latter of which were installed in 2021.

The power front seat and the rear seat are upholstered in taupe vinyl with cloth inserts. Features include African Baku wood accents, power windows, locks, and steering, column-mounted automatic transmission shifter, AM/FM radio, air conditioning, and fold-down rear armrest.

The instrument panel consists of a 120-mph speedometer and gauges for the fuel level and coolant temperature. The odometer reads 57,175 miles.

Power is provided by a 340-horsepower 429 V8 and backed by a three-speed automatic transmission. Engine bay tweaks include a rebuilt radiator and upgraded electronic ignition system.

This Cadillac was factory-equipped with an independent front suspension and a solid rear-drive axle. Braking is provided by power four-wheel drums. A single exhaust system exits at the rear.

The auction for this 1964 Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty Special four-door hardtop sedan ends Thursday, September 21, 2023, at 1:30 p.m. (PDT)
