1989 Cadillac Fleetwood
1989 Cadillac Fleetwood
The Fleetwood Body Company of Fleetwood, Pennsylvania, was founded by Harry Urich in the nineteenth century. It began as a small community of craftsmen founded by Henry Fleetwood, Esq. of Penwortham, near Lancaster, England, (the Fleetwood family flourished in England in the 17th and 18th centuries). The rich traditions of 300 years of coach-building that the Fleetwood Body Company applied to its work on cars secured for it a high reputation in automobile circles worldwide by the 1920s. Coachwork was built by Fleetwood for a variety of luxury brands through 1924. GM, having bought both companies, named the Cadillac Fleetwood in honor of this early coach building company from Pennsylvania, and the town bearing its name...Fleetwood.
For consignment, an original survivor with a mere 68,501 miles, nice Garnet Red paint, a very clean, and all conveniences working interior. A smooth 4.5 liter V8 is under the hood, it looks and drives just like the day your pop pop drove it off the showroom floor.
Straight steel which lines up very nicely with its chromed trimmings is bathed in Medium Garnet Red which is hard to say a bad word about. From the square and rectangle design grille and dual rectangular headlights all shiny and nice to the rear coach lamp shaped vertical tail lamp with chrome frames, this car has been well taken care of. The roofline with its extended area from the B pillar to the C pillar adds to the delicious richness this car offers up in mid 80's style. A red vinyl top frames a sunroof on the top, and the lower third of this car is bathed in contrasting medium gray. Even the Cadillac script engraved into the side badges and the cloisonné crested badges on the front and back are showroom! Chromed wire spoked wheel covers with the Cadillac badge on the hubs have thin white sidewall tires surrounding them and add to the splendor of this late 80's luxury liner.
A swing of the massively red padded dual paneled door panels, waltzes with wood appliqué and aluminum and chrome trimmings. A full control panel-esque grouping of toggles and joysticks work all the convenience functions and are at your fingertips. So is the clean door actuator handle and a large panel of red carpeting under the armrest put there so you don't scrape your Bruno Maglis on the threshold. Panning to the inside there are two tufted and buttoned buckets which are in 50/50 split form and wrapped in beautifully preserved red leather. There is a padded center armrest which folds upward and disappears from the bucket seats. Having the driver open the rear doors, you can luxuriate in a large padded bench, again with the tufting and buttoning, and central fold up armrest. These wonderful, overstuffed recliners float in a sea of red carpet that has no stains or scuffs on it. Looking forward to the dash we note plenty of wood appliqué mixed with some deeper very clean vinyl, which houses all the blue LCD readout dash instrumentation essentials and is fronted by the factory steering wheel. In a centrally located bump out from the dash is the climate controls with blue LCD readout, and an information center. Next to this is a digital AM/FM/Cassette player. All this floats in a clean sea off red, red carpeting!
Under the massive hood, in a clean uncorroded engine bay sits the 4.5 Liter V8. This is original to the car, and you can tell and hear it idle, it has been masterfully and faithfully attended to with servicing. It is fuel injected and has a 4T60 4-speed automatic transmission pushing power to a 2.97 geared axle.
Slight surface rust on the usual suspects, but the floorpans don't even have any road dirt on them. All solid underneath and power disc brakes for the front, and power drums for the rear. All independent suspension provides the cushy limo-like ride.
We love these large and in charge Detroit iron behemoths that roll through our door, and this one has no love lost for it. It started right up, was extremely comfortable, and my snappily dressed for the occasion test driver whisked me through the test track and I did not spill a drop of my chardonnay. An excellent experience. What a great job I have indeed, and I could get accustomed to all this hobnobbing with the goober smoocher set. A/C blows nice and cold due to a newly installed compressor!
Well heeled, high class, wealthy, high end, and luxurious still abound in this classic, which rolls you down the road with showroom ease and style, as well as condition. Fastidiously maintained and put away nicely for the next jaunt, this Caddy is truly rad, with a big touch of class!
