Doing my daily google search for "Green Cadillac Fleetwood for sale" and came across this beautiful 1981 Princess(i believe) Green Fleetwood. Has the 6.0 too. Says the exterior/top/interior are all the same. Wish i had the dough to cough up for this thing.Wish they had more pictures too...

It's nice, but it's not Sage, I thought you specifically wanted Sage.

I wonder how much longer the 8-6-4 will work?

I dunno, but I've seen some last a long time! A member on here by the name of Bro-Ham had an '81 FWB Coupe, and I got to drive it back in December of '06 when it had 236,000 on it and the 8-6-4 still worked just fine. I put it on the "active cylinder" display and watched as it went to 6 at about 55mph, then I let off the gas even more and it went into 4 cyl mode. I was really amazed it still worked with that kinda mileage!

Nice find! Although the V 8-6-4s could be troublesome, I don't belive they were as nealry problematic as the HT-4100. I know the 8-6-4s could also easily be modified to a full time 8.

Speaking of V 8-6-4s were they fuel injected?

Duh on me... I should have read the last part of the ad with respect to fuel injection.

Yeah, often the dealers would go under the hood and disable the 8-6-4 crap right away.

Which reminds me, I wonder if Cadillac is going to implement that idea into one of their upcoming models, inspired by the Cadillac 16 concept with it's variable cylinder operating modes. Hopefully they'll make an awesome new rear-wheel drive luxury sedan, and give me a reason to dream about owning a new Cadillac again.

That's purdy car Jonas, but it still doesn't hold a candle to your sage green beauty.

Sage only because of its specific rarity. I dont have any production numbers on anything other than '85. Honestly, any green Fleetwood Brougham from the '80s gets me all giddy and happy, Sage green is just one of them.

Yeah i like my color better. Heh, i wish the exterior of mine was that nice... Interior is almost perfect though. Thanks for the kind words.

I'm almost positive this color was called Medium Jadestone Firemist.

It's nice, but you should hold out for a coupe like you mentioned earlier. You'll come across one eventually. Probably when you're not even lookin, just like me.

I do know one thing about that 8-6-4, back then they weren't shielded (protected) from outside interference too well!

My dad used to be an avid Citizens Band Radio operator, and had a 1,200 watt linear in the trunk, and an 8' whip antenea on the rear bumper of his car, and ever time one of those 8-6-4's got within 100yds of him, that computer would go nuts!!

I hope that if the 8-6-4 comes out again, it's shielded way better!!

I've got a Car and Driver road test of an '81 Sedan deVille. Their average MPG was 11, city and highway combined! Not too good at all.

JEEEZ! And I thought the 16 mpg I am getting in the city with the 307 in my wagon was bad.

That's good gas mileage IMO. My brand new Infiniti only gets 12 city/20 Highway. Granted that's with a very heavy foot. My 78 FWB was getting 5mpg until the recent fine tuning of the carb...Now i'm pulling between about 12 and I'm thrilled.

Wow, with that gas mileage at least it must be a G35x? :eek:

LOL...No it's the M45, but I was expecting at least an 18 average with my big foot.
