Brougham_geezer, that car next to the '80 in that pic...is that a Caprice or Parisienne?

Well I don't own a D-body, but of all the ones I've driven, this is the one I had the most experience with: 84 Sedan deVille.

Hi,

This 79 Sedan deVille d'Elegance has been sitting inside all winter at my Stillwater, Minnesota warehouse and I got it out today for a drive in the snow and salt so I could take pictures for everyone to see on this site. Pics taken today show the 93-96 style Fleetwood alloy wheels I put on this car last fall and had the center caps painted to match the color of the car with a custom cadillac crest laser cut in the color of the accent stripes.

Also shown are pics from last winter in Florida when this car made the trip from Minnesota to Florida two times in total float and quiet! You can see the original wire wheel covers. This car looks natural in Florida on a palm lined boulevard by the shining blue water!

Who has spring fever?!

Thanks, Yes they are original wire wheels off a 1989 Brougham I got them on E-bay. They were and still are in perfect condition. THe center caps where NOS still in the box. I love this car and it is optioned (now) just the way I like it. Thanks again for all the complements

Has a coat of primer and clearcoat over the greyish coat of degrading, cracking paint it had; it's a restoration job. That's just to keep it from rusting further, the previous owners didn't keep it up well. The car sat for 5 years so the frame is in excellent condition. This summer I plan on doing a rubberized undercoating, seeing if I can save the vynle and potentially replacing the engine if it's bad.

The interior isn't too bad, needs work like everything else. Haven't had a chance to shampoo it yet.

Here's a few recent pics of my '91 Fleetwood. For those that dont know its got an '87 Iroc 355 motor/dual exhaust with Maganaflows and several other mods. The car has Intrax lowering springs in front (for an Impala SS), stock Impala SS springs out back and of course Impala SS wheels with 255/50/17 Hankook tires. Handles like an Fbody.

That side view shot - with the Imp SS wheels and the lowering - somehow oozes the look of "quietly MEAN."
You know; Doesn't say much, but tickle it and it'll beat the crap out of you as 5 hit men pile out of it to do their thing as the driver sits there filing his nails, listening to tunes, until they return.
Then they drive off in the appropriate, dignified manner. But if the need arises, nobody could catch them anyway. :)

Yeah, his Brougham commands respect. If someone were to ask, "what's under the hood?" the (goodfellas/wiseguy) answer, "don't worry about it" would suffice.

Thanks for the words of praise. Actually surprised I'm not getting the "shoulda left the white walls and wheel covers" remarks. I love the rides I'm seeing here and I'm glad this thread was started. I like to see these cars customized in a non-bling bling or lowrider fashion although thats ok too, diversity is the name of the game. Most people think the 94-96 cars are the ones to modify because they share the same chassis as the Impala SS and have an LT1 but dont realize the older ones have the exact same chassis and are just as modifiable. I recently sold my W140 Mercedes and the Caddy is now the daily driver but I'm buying a new car soon so the Caddy will become more of a toy than daily transport. It will go through an extensive mechanical makeover with either a big inch small block or a big block Chevy. Anyway, you guys will see the progress from start to finish like you did when I swapped this motor in it. Once again, great thread and really cool cars, ALL of them.

Hi - - VERY nice cars! Love the lowered Brougham! Everyone has a love affair with these cars! I'm taking my '79 for a ride through the melting snow again today. Yesterday when I was driving my Sedan deVille a car load of guys drove by me in a pimped out ivory 83 or 84 Coupe deville and they all turned their heads looking at my car and seconds later they just about rear ended a FEDEX truck because they couldn't stop looking at my pimp mobile! Classic! Dave

I usually like whitewalls on these 80's caddys, but w/w's wouldnt go with your wheels,it looks great the way it is,nice and clean looking wheels,on this model the lack of wheel bling is very nice.

i know! tell me about it! when my grandfather replaced the tires, somehow he didn't spring for whitewalls... the tires are in great shape, so i hate to get rid of them when they have a lot more miles on them. it's definately on my list of things to do. here's a pic of my caddy right now: i took the wire wheel covers off and im cleaning them up (they've never been clean in their life):

hey benzilla - thanks for the feedback on the reflectors... i went through hell just deciding wether or not to put them on and figured heck with it why not. i guess i can always take them off if i get sick of them. i took the wires off and filled a circular trash can lid full of cleaning solution and water and let them soak overnight. took most of the dirt buildup right off. i did some minor detailing with a toothbrush and that was it

I was going to take some good ones today, but ran out of time. I'll probably get some nice ones by the lake this weekend. It's not perfect, I might still have it done in a few years, but it looks much sharper in person than before

That's brilliant. What kind of cleaner and what ratio to water did you use? I'm thinking about taking mine apart to get every last spec of dirt gone. But I might try your way.

That is not his car, that car used to belong to Bill, he sold it over a year ago.

He fabricated that console using many different parts, it was a trial and error experiment.

Here is another console made by another forum member, this one was based on the late gen Riviera:

Boy, those tires sure to spiff up the car! Tell me, are those the BF Goodrich Whitewalls, or something else? I was considering those for my 89 Brougham.

I found them on eBay after months of searching. They are Firestone 2.5" Whitewalls. Try Broadway Classics or Coker if you want them ASAP.

I already bought a set of the 1.3 inch whitewalls that came standard on on early 80's fleetwood broughams. I figured i may as well go for the original look this time around, but those monster whitewalls are something i wouldn't mind giving a try...

I do see the difference, and the narrow ones look better. The emphasis should be on the wheel or wheel cover, not the white wall, and the narrower ones accentuate this, whereas the wider ones tend to draw the eye away - there's just too much blinding white going on.

It really isn't that destracting in person. They came on these cars originally, the wheelcovers were designed to be wrapped in those whitewalls.

Well, again, it's deeper than that and not fire engine red like the old digicam made it look when I took those pics years ago. It's not purple like the burgundy you see sometimes, but not bright red either--very, very luxurious and I actually like it more than my neutral to some extent. My dad doesn't--he'd prefer the neutral I have in every vehicle--but it's one thing I really like about the '93, and was shocked we found one, especially since it matched the Roadmaster.

This is more accurate:
http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c101/caddycruiser/d-1.jpg

Overall, I think the Neutral is probably the best shade for most colors, but the rarer '93 Garnet red is quite nice if you like some color, and not drab like gray or yuck (IMHO) like blue. Not for everyone, but you have to see it in person to get the effect, especially when it's as immaculate as our '93 inside.

Oh yeah, that's much better looking in that pic. I wish I had some digital pics of the red leather I had in the Roadmaster. I think it was a slightly different shade than the stuff in your '93. In '95, Buick's red leather used in the Roadmaster was called "Dark Ruby Red", Cadillac's red leather used in the Fleetwoods was called "Dark Cherry" , probably not the exact same color.

Yep. The '91-96 Buick "red" interior was pretty much a dead on match for the '93 Caddy garnet red, and didn't vary much over the model run. After '93, though, the only burgundy you could get in a Fleetwood was that Dark Cherry color, but it's basically purple and not as much of a standout.

I'm actually thinking of buying the CDV off him, he said he'd sell it for $8000. It's always been garaged and covered. I might sell my white Coupe for it.


And here's his old Town Car. Right after he sold it the new owner blew the engine up. Then had it crushed. R.I.P old Lincoln.

Those were really nice cars too. Suuuuuper plush and suuuper comfy, much more plush and ostentatious IMO than the similar Broughams. After my accident in the '92 in December of '05, I was thinking if the car was totaled, I'd pick up a real nice late '80s Town Car because they were so cheap (you could find a lot of excellent, low mileage examples for well under $3000) , so reliable, were a nice mixture of the '70s Lincolns interior and exterior design and the more modern Lincolns ride/handling plus they were smaller and easier to manuver and better on gas, and they had all of the features I craved and were ALL STEEL! That was a big issue for me after I saw how my plastic fenders gave way in that impact. But then again, the steel would have been damaged heavily too.

That's the red I was refering to. Seeing that interior really brings back memories.
P.S: I'm a big fan of the 80-89 Town Cars too. I've been looking for a clean one to add to my collection. My father had an 83 and an 87 brand new back in the day. I wish I had bought his 87 when he sold it. Black on black with the ragtop and wire wheels. When it was new it turned heads all over the place.

03-22-07, 06:51 AM
Whoa! I dig that! What is the correct name of that color combo? It looks like black over deep olive green or black over german chocolate brown.

i don't have much reliable info about the vehicle. i bought it this past december with 180,000 miles. it had been repainted a few years ago by MAACO. the guy i bought it from said MAACO used the vin number to match the paint to original. the paint you see in that pic is black on tan, but the tan color sometimes look olive. it's pretty cool and people are always complementing the colors. but, once you get within 5 feet you can see many imperfections. the roof looks like it had a vinyl top on it, but was removed. the previous owner had maaco paint over rust. but you can't really tell from afar.

fast forward to this month, someone hit the driver's side door and caused approx. $1,000 in damage. the first thing the body shop i had it repaired at told me it wasn't original, it was probably just a bunch of pigment maaco had lying around mixed together and they wouldn't be able to match it perfectly. i got the car back a week ago and the paint they sprayed is better quality, but it's lighter and doesn't have the olive tint to it. i'm not exactly in love with the color blend but they told me the truth up front so i'm satisfied.

thanks for the compliments, i'm amazed every time someone comments my beater cadillac. i just have to keep them at least 5 feet away.

I'm planing on the Phaeton because I'd love to take a road trip in it. Second choice is the '90. I don't want to put the miles on the '83. Plus the HT4100 isn't exactly the ultimate thrill on the highway...

I've thought about wet sanding, but the trunk paint is already getting thin. I still think I'll consult a professional detailer about it and see what they say. If I could make the top surfaces shine more with just a little more work I'd be thrilled!

Cool. I gotta hold off on any new projects for a while. I just moved to a new 2 family and only have one space in the driveway. BTW you're Phaeton looks beautiful, you should avoid a repaint at all costs, that original paint will bring top dollar down the road.
P.S: What's going on in May, I've been away for the past 2 weeks.

I like the Phaeton alot! The only thing i don't like about it is the grille. I never was a fan of the "rolls royce" grills that come above the hood like that.

Okay, so I finally got some pictures of my Phaeton after the polishing, their not the best pics, but their something. The sides look great, but the top surfaces are still a little dull because they take on more sun I guess.

Ben,

May I say you've done a hell of a job cleaning the old girl up. She looks 1000% better than the last time I saw her!:) You really got the firemist paint to shine! Were you ever able to get the passenger-door window sash touched up? BTW, love the WWW tires.:thumbsup:

Thanks, only thing is, the passenger side door was already redone at some point, so it's not 100% original. What we were talking about in May is the Des Monies national CadillacOwner's meet. it would be great if you could make it!

Yeah, I'm with you on the grille. It wasn't my choice either. But it was originally dealer installed at Hillcrest Motors in Beverly Hills CA and has been there since. So if I get it repainted, I'll put on a standard grille, right now it wouldn't match if I took it off.

Thanks Craig, it means something coming from you.

I haven't gotten the window sash touched up yet, because I think I'll just have the whole door redone. The last time it was redone, they didn't match the paint perfectly, so if you look at it from a certain angle it's a little off, plus somehow my old mechanic put a dent in the bottom of the door, so I figured I might as well have it all taken care of at once.

Great to hear from you, where the hell have you been? :)

03-24-07, 09:37 PM
i don't have much reliable info about the vehicle. i bought it this past december with 180,000 miles. it had been repainted a few years ago by MAACO. the guy i bought it from said MAACO used the vin number to match the paint to original. the paint you see in that pic is black on tan, but the tan color sometimes look olive. it's pretty cool and people are always complementing the colors. but, once you get within 5 feet you can see many imperfections. the roof looks like it had a vinyl top on it, but was removed. the previous owner had maaco paint over rust. but you can't really tell from afar.

fast forward to this month, someone hit the driver's side door and caused approx. $1,000 in damage. the first thing the body shop i had it repaired at told me it wasn't original, it was probably just a bunch of pigment maaco had lying around mixed together and they wouldn't be able to match it perfectly. i got the car back a week ago and the paint they sprayed is better quality, but it's lighter and doesn't have the olive tint to it. i'm not exactly in love with the color blend but they told me the truth up front so i'm satisfied.

thanks for the compliments, i'm amazed every time someone comments my beater cadillac. i just have to keep them at least 5 feet away.

Hey, I was just looking through my 1979 Cadillac material, and I think your two tone is actually original. There was a color called Pottery Gold Firemist that they two toned with Sable Black. The color chip I have looks exactly like your car.

Honestly, I think those pics are cool. The image quality makes them look like vintage ads. With a little more thought about composition, you could have shots that you would want to frame. (Try and avoid things in the background like the power lines and the telephone poles).

1979 Sedan deVille. Black with red leather interior and a red pinstripe. 108k miles.


Mini review: (I only drove it around the parking lot at work, so forgive me, but here goes)

Between the '84 Sedan deVille I drove, and the '90 Brougham I've driven quite a bit, the '79 felt a lot more like the '90, but it was probably because they both had the leather interior (probably the exact same seat). The seats were comfy, but lacked the lateral support that my seats do, they felt wider and flatter, but not as deep as the cloth seats in that '84 (those seats were to die for!). Otherwise, the 425 provided ample low end torque, but oddly enough, it didn't feel *that* much more powerful or torquey, and the throttle responce was (obviously) not as sharp as the EFI cars. Otherwise, from memory, the car didn't feel that much different than the other 77-92 D bodies I've driven.

Lochenjons,

Took the pics in the hills above Malibu. If the concrete barrier was gone, you could see (through the haze) the Pacific Ocean.

Ben,

Thanks! She's not perfect by a long shot, more of a nice driver, but I'm making progress.

Brian,

The see-through ornament was introduced as standard on the 1974 DeVille/Calais and ran through 1977. D'Elegance models got the Fleetwood-style full wreath and crest.

Jay,

Thanks! Like I said, I'm no photographer, I deficiency I inherited from my dad. A fine man, rest him, but he could no more take a clear picture than pick a reliable car ('68 AMC Rebel, '78 Chevette, '81 Plymouth Horizon? I ask you.). However, someday, I will finally break down and buy a digital camera and learn how to use the thing properly. I will also learn how to use the multi-quote function on this website.

Thanks to all for the props! Keep the pics coming!

My 1989 Brougham, black with a dark red interior. Hearty survivor of 17 New England winters. Never garaged, and proud of it! Original paint and everything, I gave it a wash and wax before the pictures, amazing what that'll do.

Also, those tires were put on last week. Those are the p235 dimension IVs. I don't think they look bad at all, and the wider white wall works good on a black car, in my opinion. Certainly not bad, but if you do get them, they rub against the chassis when the wheel is forced all the way, so, um try not to do that.

That's a gold-plated k40 CB radio antenna. They originally sold for like, 200 bucks back in 1985, but when i went to my local car audio garage, it's all he had in the shop so i got it for 45 bucks.

Tinting the windows is definitely on the list of things to do, if only to keep the sun out during the summer. With a black exterior and leather inside, you could fry an egg on those seats, which may be why the front ones look like this...

That's what I like to see. Often you realize that your car may not have all the options you wanted, or it may not be the right color, or in the best condition, but you love it anyway because it's yours, and the fact that it is the only one that is yours. Other people may have Broughams colored like mine, or in better condition than mine, but they don't have mine. I love how cars are so personable like that.

I also love how they are two tons of steel on wheels.

Ahh ok, "Black Sapphire" was the dark blue used on the 90-92 Broughams, I'd assume they kept the same color for the 93-96's, and just changed the name to "Dark Adriatic Blue Metallic".

The color code should be on the build sheet under the heading Ext Paint or something like that. Like another poster said check the cowl. You want to find the build sheet anyway as it will give you a lot more documentation on your car.

Tracking the VIN number most days will give you the registration information and we all now how unspecific those color listings are.

When I check the docs online for your build sheet the most common listing is the spare tire cover but it could be all sorts of places. My '88 is 100 miles away from me till I pick it up tomorrow so when I get it I will check and see where mine is. Maybe yours is in the same place.

I checked my gas tank but no luck there, does anyone know where the cowl is located for an 86 fleetwood brougham? engine compartment possibly?

Just wanted to say thanks for all the looking. I mean it is good for an owner to know the location of the sheet, still I appreciate you going through the effort to get that paint code for me. I owe you a beer or alternative non-alcoholic beverage!

The paint code is on the option tag on the inside of your deck lid, it will give you the paint code.. most gm's are in the trunk/ spare tire cover area, trucks are in the glove box.

I work in a body shop ;)




As far as pics, i havent posted any of my car, But will tonight.

Get ready.... cuz shes spotin wire wheels and wide whites :D

Hi, thanks for asking. I have whiplash and back pain. I am just thankful that I was not in a small car. I will not ever own a small car. I will probably buy a 1996 Fleetwood or that 1998 on ebay. I will always sacrifice a little mileage for more safety. I might consider a Deville. I am just glad to be alive. thank god.

Glad to hear you are ok for the most part anyway. Like you said it's a good thing you weren't driving a little Toyota or something similar, an extra 20 bucks per tank isn't much to pay if it saves your life one day that's for sure.

thanks for the kind words everyone. I had to go to the hospital twice yesterday to get pain shots. I feel better now. How much do you think I will get from the insurance company for my car? 2 days before the wreck I put new rear Delco shocks on it and a changed oil Monday, put new battery last week. For anyone who needs new 1993 Delco rear air shocks RockAuto.com sells them shipped for $80.07 a set shipped. Now on with my search for a 1996 Fleetwood. LOL I will post pictures when I get my next Cadillac. TexasCadillac :)

Nice!!! I dig those Buick Rallye (is that the right name?) wheels on it, never seen that done before. And I'm not sure if the whole car is an '81, but the grille is, and that's my favorite grille on those cars.

dont get me wrong guys, i do my part to protect the environment. i recycle, clean up trash, and know a thing or two about growing citrus trees.

im just trying to make a point that its really annoying when all of the UCSC hip cool college kids trying to act like theyve lived in my town for their whole lives walk up to me and say "hey man... why are you driving a car like that in times like this?" and "youre making it harder to breathe for everyone" to that i reply that 1, my car gets 26mpg on a good day. 2, this car was a gift from my grandfather, and 3, i flip them the finger and walk away.

maybe it sounded like i was dissing on people who protect the enviroment. but no way, i'm one of them

I dont think anyone took it that way. I havnt had anyone EVER say anything negative to me about my car.Only very positive things and compliments. But is someone said something like "youre making it harder for me to breathe", i would reply with something like "good" or "awesome" or "tru" or "word".

I drive my car because its a f*cking bad ass sexy piece of American luxury.

I wouldnt have it any other way.

You get 25mpg is an '85 Brougham? I dont belive mine has ever seen over 20mpg.

05-03-07, 06:53 PM
yeah like 90% of the feedback i get on my car is positive... but there's always those select few who think its unenvironmental or something like that. just like you, i wouldnt have it any other way.

yeah i can squeeze 26 out of it if im going down the highway at 55 with my foot barely on the pedal.

I'm not a fan of environmental liberals and their complaining about everything on four wheels either. If that's the price i pay for driving a good looking car, so be it. people nowadays just want something to be edgy about, and since most college kids see cars as pointless machines that only serve as transportation and a place to eat drive through food, well, they attack them. It's my right as an American to drive a Cadillac for it's style and beauty, and say to hell with the fuel economy. If you don't like it, go to Russia.

I still claim my record is 28 mpg on my trip out to cape cod about a year ago. I can't explain it, nor do I try.

Maybe you should educate them on the fact that used cars are the highest for of recycling there is and that gasoline is not the only oil product and how many barrels of oil go into all the new rubber, plastics, and paints that are used to produce new cars. They might understand then, probably not though as they are all a bunch of pot smoking hippies!!!

Our Caddy doesn't do much more than 100 miles a week most times. I commute via motorcycle 90% of the time year round. I get about 40 MPG on that.

These kids have no idea with their softball exhaust ricers or the mom and dad provided SUV. Personally I think seeing a "No War For Oil" sticker on an Excursion is justification for homicide by tire iron!!!

Here's a few recent pics of my '91 Fleetwood. For those that dont know its got an '87 Iroc 355 motor/dual exhaust with Maganaflows and several other mods. The car has Intrax lowering springs in front (for an Impala SS), stock Impala SS springs out back and of course Impala SS wheels with 255/50/17 Hankook tires. Handles like an Fbody.

Looks Excellent! I have an 83 Coupe De Ville and would like to put the same wheels & tires on, Do you kniow if they would fit?
