Bargain Barge? 1966 Cadillac Fleetwood

If a mere 18-foot-long car isn’t enough for you, we present this 1966 Cadillac Fleetwood Series 75 Executive Sedan. This luxurious limo can be found here on Craigslist with an asking price of just $4,000! What, seriously? I kid you not, that’s basically 1/3 of the Hagerty #4 fair condition value. It’s located in beautiful Maple Valley, Washington, around 20 miles as the crow flies southeast of Seattle. Thanks to Miguel for sending in this tip!

1966 is my favorite year for Cadillac DeVille, but the Fleetwood Series 75 was on another level. This particular car has a couple of scrapes along the right rear door and right quarter panel as you can see, the seller says, “Needs body work on the right rear door and fender.”

This was a former funeral home car, according to the seller. They say, “When I bought this car it was 12 years young and just retired from easy/breezy funeral home service. Nevertheless, I put on new tires, did a complete brake rebuild, rebuilt the carburetor, did plugs-points-condenser, and replaced all hoses. Then I considered it ready for a 400 mile trip to San Francisco, which it handled just fine. Since then it has had nothing more than normal tune-ups and it has sat idle for the past 20 years.” Now I see why the asking price is so low, it’ll need to be gone through, every system, every belt every hose, all fluids, etc.¬† As you can see, a few of the photos are dated from almost a decade ago, I just thought I’d mention that.

But, what a car! If a person could buy it locally and not have to pay some crazy amount to ship a big car like this halfway or the whole way across the country, it could be a fun project and what a car you’d end up with. The driver’s seat looks great and who doesn’t want a divider window in their car? There are no engine photos but it should have Cadillac’s 429 cubic-inch V8 with 340 hp. I have no clue what I would use this car for but that doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t love to have it. Are there any 1966 Cadillac Fleetwood fans out there?

    If this was closer to my home, it would be mine… Unless it is already sold.

    It would make an awesome tow car for a vintage racer!

    ’66 was my favorite year too, Scotty. Had a ’66 Calais 4-door HT and loved it. The
    429 V-8 was the only engine offered across the board that year. These cars are smooth powerful machines that
    gobble up the miles when you turn them
    loose on the interstate. If you get sleepy
    driving one of these, pull over at the nearest rest area, climb into the rear
    seat, and settle your brains for a long
    night’s nap. I wouldn’t need a specific
    use for this car except to drive and
    enjoy it.

    “…Got no sleigh with reindeer, no sack on
    my back, you’ll see me comin’ in a big black Cadillac.” Just couldn’t resist!
    Merry Christmas everybody!

    Nine-year-old photos give me pause. Pretty sure those rusty bits haven’t gotten any better.

    Look at that beauty. That’s when a Cadillac LOOKED like a Cadillac. There was no mistaking those stately lines for any other vehicle and so many people wanted a Cadillac, at least once in their lives.

    That car still turns heads. This is a bargain for sure.

    Had a ’65 Sedan De Ville in 1975 and paid $700.00 for it. Not the same car but still……….so 4K or so is reasonable. The owner seems upfront and can write complete sentences lol. Though I also think I see mold in the inside rear and the pix are very old. I like that the owner has had it for forty plus years…there should be nothing he or she doesn’t know about the car…… A Division window! Be still my heart. I had a perfect ’60 Caddie Limo…………..only problem is you need a driver. You want to be in the back! Still……………

    Same Seattle Craigslist- another ’66 Caddy – this one an Eldorado drop top. Drop top Seller uses the same wording found in the ad for the Executive “Note the new and attractive price”. So, same Seller? Did he really have the Executive since 1988 as he states? Why doesn’t he mention that if the limo isn’t your style to check out the ragtop? What’s going on here? https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/cto/d/1966-cadillac-eldorado/6769157315.html
