This is a 1981 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham DeElegance with every conceivable option for that year including the Coffin DeElegance leather interior and the rare ASTRO ROOF.

The color of the Cadillac is a beautiful "Midnight Blue Metallic". I purchased this car from the original owner who bought it new in 1981. I drove it away from the underground garage where this car has been parked it's entire life until January of 2017 (when I bought it). The owner sold the car because he could no longer drive. He told me that he had the car professionally repainted it's original color in the early 2000's. The paint still looks fantastic overall with the exception of a couple spots of superficial rust (see photos of fender). He told me he had the original 8-6-4 engine replaced many years ago at the GM dealership with a rebuilt reliable GM 6. 0L crate engine. There is paperwork supporting this engine replacement. There is also a receipt showing that the transmission was rebuilt in 2007. When I bought the car and first drove it. it ran very rough due to having been sitting without being driven much over the past 5 years. I changed the fluids. did an engine flush. dropped the gas tank and removed all the old gas and changed the fuel filter. Since then the car has driven very nicely. I also had the rear shocks replaced.

This Cadillac still drives nice and has a very smooth ride. The vinyl top is original and is showing it's age (see photo). Interior is good however driver side carpet is getting very worn (see photo) and driver seat is also showing signs of wear and cracking of the leather. Astro roof is huge but is not functioning. Previous owner said it is due to bad switch which he had purchased but did not install. It comes with the car. The power antenna is not functioning but there is a brand new one (still in the box) that comes with the car. Driver side lower strap of seatbelt is broken but there is a brand new one (still in box) that comes with the car. Heat seems to work but blower fan is not working.

PLEASE EMAIL ME FOR SPECIFIC QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE REGARDING CONDITION. THE CAR IS IN GOOD CONDITION FOR AGE BUT PLEASE KEEP IN MIND IT IS A 35 YEAR OLD CAR SO DON'T EXPECT PERFECT AND DON'T ASK ME IF IT WILL MAKE A 1000 MILE TRIP WITH NO PROBLEMS.
