In my quest for a decent cheap Fall/Winter Brougham I came across these for sale.

I might look at the first one tomm. So i will take better pics. The red one sounds like it might have been well maintained.

I agree about condition of mait. of the red one. PLUS it is a De'Elegance....that alone is awesome.

I looked at the tan one today it has 125,000 miles and it is the original owner, it had a new bumper installed which is nice. The seats are in great condition. There is not too much rust but some in spots. The windshield wiper "transmission bars" need replacement. Needs one brake line and brakes. Also needs a v-pipe for exhaust. The passenger window does not go down. It runs great, transmission fluid is pink. These are pretty much all the issues. He is letting it go for $700. He seems to be very thorough on everything.

I like that one and thats a great price for it. The grille is wrong tho but it shouldnt be too hard to find the right one or at least one that looks closer.

I like those grills better then the original for the 90s. I noticed the ad for the tan one is gone, did you get it?

I like the tan one. Fuel injection, better tranny and he has the wheel covers. I would just worry about the exhaust. The Y-pipe can be a pain sometimes, especially if you have to disconnect it from the manifold and the bolt breaks

I would go with the red one; d'Elegance, low miles, $1 cheaper, nicer color, carburetor and it don't have that stupid "bug-eyed" look.
