Pick of the Day: 1975 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham

Say hello to Jennifer. Jennifer Blue, that is.


Marketing literature for 1975 Cadillacs proclaimed that the lineup should be considered the “Standard for the World.” That level of pride and confidence filtered through to buyers, many of whom maintained and preserved these cars so that they would last – and look good – for 50 years or beyond.

The Pick of the Day is a low-mileage 1975 Cadillac Fleetwood sedan listed for sale on ClassicCars.com by a private seller in Palm Springs, California. (Click the link to view the listing)

“Available for sale is a fantastically original 1975 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham,” the listing says. “Just two owners from new with only 30,500 original miles. Stunning all-original paint in Jennifer Blue with Dark Blue Tuxedo vinyl top and outrageous, optional, and ornate Monticello velour interior.”

The interior is wild indeed: I love the design of the upholstery, and the texture appears inviting and comfortable. This is the kind of car that gives a “living room on wheels” vibe. Rear seat passengers are even given a center armrest along with fold-down footrests that pivot from the back of the front seat. I looked up a little of the story on that striking baby-blue “Jennifer Blue” paint color. According to some collector resources online, the color was only offered during model years 1975 and 1977.

The seller provides a little bit of the car’s backstory: “Purchased from the estate of an Iowa farmer’s wife; this was her special-occasion vehicle. Stored in their barn and never used in winter.”

The listing doesn’t specify the engine details on this big luxo-sedan, but some Internet research shows that it likely has a large 500cid (8.2-liter) V8 which was rated at 190 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque. This car needs all the grunt it can get, because it tips the scales at about 5,400 pounds (that heft is roughly one ton more than a 2023 Toyota Camry). The seller states that that the clock and the radio are not working, but the car “runs and drives beautifully.” Recent work included replacement of the alternator, air conditioning, battery, brake booster, brake master cylinder, and wide whitewall tires.

Is this car worthy of being named the “Standard of the World”? There is only one way to find out: You had better contact the seller today to schedule a test-drive.

The asking price is $22,500 for this far-out Fleetwood.

  1. Tje asking price is $5,000.00 more than the show room sticker. I also has 30,000 miled on it. With the age of the car and miles the transmission needs flushed and filter chnged. lf those are orginal tires they need to be replaced from ageing and dry rot and probaly needs the exhust need inspected for.rust from age. now you are talking another $10,000.00. So unless you are rich with money to burn tjat is tp pricey. It is a fact that all sellers think their property is worth more than it really is. so think about what l have said when you set your overly selling price.. Good luck finding a fool with his money.!!!!

  2. If this were just a sedan deville yes the price is high, But it’s a Fleetwood brougham. Those are much rarer they sit on a slightly longer wheelbase, with a strong b pillar they have foot rests, that would not fit in a sedan deville, and a special carpeting plus more insulation, etc.
    Transmission fluid and filter and tires are minor things, look at the quality of the entire car engine body and interior and go find another one cheaper if you can
