That is one gorgeous car. If it's a real V4P tow package car, that's pretty sweet.

Whoa, that's awesome! Probably one of the nicest '96 FWB's in the state, and only 10 minutes from me (I'm in Eagan).

The color combination is not rare, but the options are, especially the V4P, and you won't find many with this low of mileage and in this good of condition. So it's worth a lot. Maybe not $8,500, but atleast $6,000.

Nice car. Too much in my opinion but I'm cheap. I could see that car going for 8k to the right person but not in mpls. I don't think it will sell soon but you never know.

Thats one nice FWB. I still can't believe how much money these Caddys pull in. the mileage is really low, and the asking price is not bad at all considering the year and condition that the car is in.

Rare color or not, that's a beauty. If there was 8.5K gracing my pocketbook, would have sent the $$ by now. As mentioned above, the options + condition make it one outstanding Caddy! :thumbsup:

Yea I have seen that one too when it came out on CL... Very nice car.. The color is Fawn Grey. My past Caprice 1996 (sold) was Marblehead Granite Grey or something like that. We need to all go cruising next spring, MN guys. lol.

IIRC Marblehead metallic and Fawn Grey are the same color, just one has the good ol' special Cadillac name.

beautiful car but i think 8k is too much. check this one out i found on ebay last night. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/VERY-NICE-1995-Fleetwood-59K-miles-1-owner-FLA-Car-/330481269614?pt=US_Cars_Trucks&hash=item4cf237fb6e i love this color reminds me of the greenish color 94-96 Impala SS's came in

I guess the two could be the same, but your (Hope to be) 96FWB looks a bit redder. My 96 Caprice code is: U9924 which I was told on the Impala SS forum to be Marblehead Grey Met. Who knows..both are nice.

I always get 20+ mpg on the highway with my 94 and 95 fleetwood and FWB.. My son always got much less with his 94 fleetwood... come to find out he had a towing package with a lower gear rear end... So a towing package is only good if you use it...

Fawn Grey is what Cadillac's official name for that color was on the '95 FWB. I just checked my '95 Cadillac brochure. The same color was referred to as "granite" on the 95-96 Caprices according to my brochures.

yeah marketing/sales likes to change the names of the colors around to make them seem more appealing to the indented buyer/market (i guess)

we run in to this a lot getting touch up paint for customers... about half of the time the touch up paint color name is different than what the car was sold as

What a sharp ride, vinyl delete is reasonable

Vinyl delete on a FWB is the best looking B/D body car EVER. I want one soooooooo badly.
