: Mileage on older Cadillacs

08-16-10, 12:34 AM
Why does it seem like there are a lot of older model cadillacs out there for sale with relatively low mileage? I currently own a '94 Deville. I love it, but I'm looking for something older. I am amazed how many 70's and 80's models I've seen with as few as 50,000 plus to 90,000 miles. Should I be suspicious of an early 70's Fleetwood with about 90,000 miles?

It's certainly possible to have a 1970s car with 90K miles. One with 50K would be suspicious. I'd want to look at it very closely, esp in the areas that are prone to wear and ageing. They tell the true story of the car's mileage.

My 1980 cdv. has 56,000 miles on it, I know it's history, backed up by receipts and service records, it's original owner bought it brand new and had it until he sold it, he used it 6 months of the year and it was garaged for
the rest of the year,he spent 6 months of the year near vancouver british columbia and "headed south" for the other 6 months.
