Wow great car. Thanks for sharing. 25k miles huh. I wonder if it's worth the $6k

Beautiful. However, I thought that '74 was the only year for the true 4 seater Talismans. I thought I remembered reading somewhere that the '75-'76 examples only had the center console between the people in the front. Maybe I'm wrong, but I believe this is the first '75-'76 I've seen with a rear console. Anyone else thinking that, or am I completely mistaken?

Regardless the car is gorgeous. Wow.

I sort of like the un-split seats in the regular Fleetwood Brougham better.

Although, that is a nice car.

I've read that too.


Gorgeous car, one of my favorite Fleetwoods ever, and probably my 2nd favorite Cadillac from the '70s. First being the '77-'78 Eldorado Biarritz.

Hi,

About the rear console, I've never seen a 1975 or 1976 with the rear console. This is what the 1975 Cadillac sales brochure says about the Talisman back seat: "the rear seat has been made full size this year." In the 1976 Cadillac brochure regarding the Talisman: "Between each front seat is a console with illuminated and lockable storage compartment." My guess is this car has been worked over a bit since it has a newer GM electronically tuned radio (which didn't appear until 1978) and perhaps the owner found an interior from a 1974 model and fit the back seat to his 1976 or - perhaps this car started life as a standard 1976 Fleetwood Brougham and the whole interior could have been put in from a 1974 Talisman. Who knows?! Someone will need to do some investigating.

Unfortunately, I would want that as my daily driver.

Put a Yugo in front of me; paint it white. I will buy it. I am a sucker for white cars.
