Its a 1985 fleetwood brougham coupe with a rebuilt engine last ran 2 yrs ago its got nice interior all dark blue leather the outside is in desperate need of work it has body rust and serious paint issues but the rust is not going thru on anything just surface.Also the power steering was going when the guy parked it ..im gonna offer him 150.00 see if he bites if so i could make it back on parting her out ayways or throwing her on ebay and get at leat 600 as is heres a pic ill get more as the story unfolds....

Great! Nice looking caddy, although I thought you wanted one to keep?

I'd fix that up, you know it. It still looks solid as a rock, just rough around the edges.

yea i do want to keep im saying if its a little to much to handle then i can still make my money back but with the exception of the headliner and some cleaning that interior is prestine just the outside is weird got like painted birds on it and lil swirlies i think as a quik fix im going to sand the rust spots and spray with rustolium rust stop then get into the nitty gritty with her.......you know if caddyman tom can grab a 74 wagon i can grab an 85 fleetwood.......

Do not part that car out unless it has serious underbody rust. If the interior is good, all it needs is a paint job. Hang a cheap junkyard fender on it, and get it painted in a cheap single stage. It will look great.

It really doesn't need all that much work, atleast in regards to the bodywork and interior.

I love it, but that is some WEIRD shit painted on it. Did some polish grandmother own it or something? If it runs well, just got some paint and tint the windows, lol. If I needed a project, I'd buy it. Seriously, I love those Fleetwood Coupes.
