Trying to sell my 1987 as I want to buy a 1993-1996 Fleetwood. Who can tell me what price tag would be reasonable enough to put on it?

1987 Cadillac Brougham D'Elegance RWD. VIN#: (1G6DW51Y5H9718364) Mileage: 80,000k
The car has it's original paint as well as original white vynyl top. Both might need some work to restore it's beauty. The chrome shines beautifully during day and night. The car is rear wheel drive. The veloure interior is in great shape with no tears or deep stains. All the emblems are intact and all of the lighting works great as well as the power windows, power locks& power seats. All I can say the interior may need is new weatherstrip for the front two doors. The car does come equipped with cruise control and air conditioning which I believe may need a recharge as it currently blows warm air. The transmission is automatic. The engine is a 350 V8 engine which runs great. The only issue might be a cracked exhaust manifold or a leak where the exhaust bolts up to the exhaust manifold as I've been hearing some sort of rattling plastic bag sound from under the hood when speeding. I have performed basic garage work on the vehicle such as tune-ups and can say all is fine.

I have replaced the original wheels with 13x7 wire wheels on 155/80/13 tires. They have been used for a mere month or so and have plenty of thread left. The original wheels and tires including the spare will be included as well as the hubcaps. I also had a Pioneer DEH-P7000BT receiver installed along with a power antenna, built-in iPod adapter, HD Radio and blue-tooth capabilities. I do have the original radio which is in great condition and which will also will be included. I took the liberty to put in a VIPER 5900 2-Way Security System. The alarm has a mile range, transceiver LCD screen, On-board Door Lock Relays, Fail-safe Starter Kill , Remote Start, Key-less Entry, Remote Control Trunk Pop and much more.

The motor is a 307, nice head unit, put the original rims on(you will get a better market of people), plastic bag noise may be smog related. $1500 sounds nice from here but nobody can price the car from the internet. And you should want a 94-96 brougham(LT1 350). But please take the rims off cause people usually think the car has been abused when they see those rims.

It will be a hard car to sell with those rims on it. A very small market of people actually like those while many, many others do not. You can easily get more money by selling the rims and the car seperately.

With the factory wheels I would say $2000. Sell the rims for whatever you can get for them.

Why not a 1993? Yeah the wire wheels are kind of a hassle, I hate scrappin' and guess it was the mainstream attention the wire wheela get in music videos that got my attention. I took the tint off and will take new pictures tomorrow maybe.

The 94 and 96 fleetwood both have different engines? Sorry, I meant to say: are there any differences between the 94 and 96 fleetwood?

and the gas tank is full, that adds another 100 bucks to the price tag. And remote start, does that work nice? I've been thinking about getting one but have heard them do a number on starters.

The remote start works great yet I've been getting kind of cold so I have to start it manually in the morning in order for it work later on flawlessly. I heard that it was suppose to start right up with the Viper remote-start whether cold or hot but I'm guessing not since it's an older car?

With the original wheels will anybody here be interested?

You should put it on ebay with a low reserve. These cars usually do pretty good on there, especially with the alarm, remote start and deck. That really is a clean install on the deck. Even though you have the 307, I bet you will get close to $2K. Maybe sell it with a carfax to ease there mind. But you gotta fix the blinker arm.

Its has a carburetor, not fuel injection. That is why it doesn't like to start right up.

Thanks for the info bro, does the 94 Fleetwood have fuel injection? Looks I'm going end selling the wire wheels for $150 cheaper then what I paid. :( I hope I can get a sale once I put the original wheels back on. A 1994 fleetwood with vogues is my inspiration LOL.

You guys think I should replace the pioneer unit with the original?

There's your answer. The carb needs to be choked first before it'll start cold.....

Wow you suck, why are you in CA? Every one here knows I'm looking for something that body style. 87 would not be my first choice but that's a nice car and I'd leave the wheels on it.

BTW the 93 Brougham has a much more reliable L05 drive-train. Far less costly to repair and maintain. Far easier to work on if you're a do-it-yourselfer.

In 94 they also lost some options that only appeared on the 93 like 16-way seats with power lumbar. There are also a few other small differences on the interior.

On the outside after 94 they moved the side mirrors to be more integrated into the door rather than being "attached" to the door. That gave the car a little sportier look if you will.

Anything LT1 is I think direct injection, is that the proper type of injection?.

The L05 on the other hand is TB injection. I have to tell you that my L05 has 212,000 miles on it and we just had a compression test done. My mechanic was astounded at the fact that she was exactly 180 PSI across the board with no leak down. There's something to be said about that.

From a seller's point of view I'd take the Pioneer unit out and save it for whatever you buy next. Bluetooth? iPod plug? Yeah I'd hang on to that......

I personally don't feel like you "ruined" the car since everything you did is reversable. I'm not into 13" wheels and modern day sound systems in 22 year old cars but there's something to be said about at least making the mods reversable. Some people paint the car some nasty puke green and start swapping front clips from different years. That I don't like....

Are these for the hubcaps? I didn't put on the new wheels myself and now I can't find the fourth one of these, I only have three. Are they only for the hubcaps though? And how much do they run for.

Cadillac Broughams were actually some of the last carbeurated cars on the road. Carbs officially ended for all Cadillac models in 1991.

The original wheels are back on but now I can't find the tool to lock the hubcaps and actually lost one of the locks for the hubcaps. Who's interested in the ride? $1500 OBO. :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:
